Adele's New Video Is Great, But Let's Talk About That Dress
Yes, Adele's new video for "Send My Love (to Your New Lover)" is amazing. The song is great, and Adele is striking — and then, of course, there's that dress.
The centrepiece of the stripped-down video is Adele's stunning long-sleeved maxi, which was designed by Dolce & Gabbana. The Dolce & Gabbana Evening Pussy-Bow Sequinned Printed Silk-Chiffon Gown ($14,001), from the designers' Spring 2016 collection, is a true centrepiece of the video. Throughout the stark piece, the colours of the floral print stand out, as do the embroidered embellishments along the bodice. Toward the end of the video, Adele dances and sways with the dress's voluminous, gorgeous skirt.
Adele worked with the stylist Gaelle Paul, who told Billboard this is actually the first time the singer has worn the label. Gaelle spoke about how she, Adele, and the video's director, Patrick Daughters, decided on the D&G look. "It was really about what [Patrick] needed from the dress," Gaelle said. "It was quite dark, the background, and we needed something that would show up against that."
