As if we needed another reason to adore Adele. She not only is the biggest selling singer of 2011 and 2012, she’s engaged, she’s recording the new James Bond theme song, and she’s a mom to be–but now “Rumor Has It” (we’ll be here all week!) that the songstress requested that British fashion house Burberry begin designing plus size styles–and she may do the designing herself!
While it’s yet to be confirmed, it’s pretty much a dream come true for Adele, because she loooooves Burberry (and it’s so cute that they’re both British!). She’s teaming up with Christopher Bailey, the creative director of the line (and someone she’s admired for a while). “I’ve met Christopher Bailey a few times,” said a while back. “I’ve always loved Burberry. I remember saving for three years to get my first bag before I got signed.” C’mon, you can relate!
We freakin’ love this idea for so many reasons. For one, it’s Adele, and she can pretty much do no wrong in our eyes. We’re excited to see what kind of designs she has in mind, because she always looks so classy and put-together in an awesome 1960s mod kind of way, from her outfits (many of which have been Burberry numbers) to her fluffy bouffants and teased wigs to her cat eyeliner.
We’re also just stoked in general that a designer label is going to have a plus sized line, because, well, it’s about time, isn’t it? It’s awesome for girls who may not be a 00 to be able to snag runway-ready outfits–not just for their own wardrobes, but also for the designers themselves. By opening a new market for their clothes, they’re pretty much bound to make more money. Which begs the question: Why did no one think of this before?!
Would you buy plus-sized Burberry items? Do you think Adele would make a good designer? Which celeb’s style would you want to see in a plus-sized version? Tell us in the comments!
