Adele Covers ‘Elle’ Magazine’s Annual ‘Music’ Issue


It’s time for Elle to publish their annual Music issue and this year they have decided to put Grammy and Academy Award-winning singer/songwriter Adele on the cover … along with a couple of other musical ladies. Adele stuns with retro-inspired styling on her cover, which you can see in full below. It seems like a no-brainer that the folks at Elle would look to Adele to be their coverstar this month. After the jump, see how beautiful Adele looks in the new issue of Elle.

For this year’s Women in Music Issue, the ELLE team traveled from L.A. to London to capture three of today’s brightest stars—Adele, Alicia Keys, and Rita Ora—for our rotating covers. How did we pull it off? Photographer Thomas Whiteside: “We photographed Adele at L.A.’s iconic EastWest Studios, where Frank Sinatra recorded his greatest hits.” ELLE Creative Director Joe Zee: “The set reflected Adele’s retro crooner style perfectly.” Whiteside: “It was also my birthday, and she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to me—best present ever!”

I can’t even imagine what it must be like to have Adele sing Happy Birthday to you but I imagine it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Joe Zee and his entire team at Elle truly outdid themselves with this feature on Adele. Now that it’s been a few weeks since Adele has added to her trophy case, it might be time for the singer to unleash a new album so she can collect even more awards. I suspect we’ll hear new music sooner rather than later. She looks fav in this issue of Elle, don’t she? You can pick up this issue of Elle on April 23.

    She looks gorgeous as usual :)!
    I understand Adele and Alicia Keys but Rita Ora?! Um, I don’t get it.
    That being said if Adele comes out with an album everybody better hurry up and get whatever junk out that they can because we know she’ll shut it down!
