After pop darling Adele racked up a hot six Grammy Awards wearing a dress that she and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey designed together, rumor has it the songstress is teaming up with the designer again for a plus-size collaboration. ContactMusic.com is reporting that Adele, who is set to give birth later this month with husband Simon Konecki, will create bespoke designs for curvy women with her stylist Gaelle Paul . We’re really hoping this happens (and is super successful) especially because it would be a huge slap in the face to one Karl Lagerfeld who once deemed Adele “a little too fat” for his taste. #Win!
ContactMusic quoted a source as saying:
Adele has always had an interest in fashion, and Christopher [Bailey, of Burberry] is keen to get her involved because she knows exactly what suits her and likes to be involved in the creative process.
The pairing makes sense, especially after Burberry dressed Adele for multiple red carpet appearances during the 2011 award season, including the MTV Video Music Awards. And Adele may already have a post-pregnancy job lined up in singing the theme song for the new James Bond flick, Skyfall, but this would be a huge move for both her and Burberry. She has also spoke openly about her love of the brand, saying:
“I’ve met Christopher Bailey a few times,” she said previously. “I’ve always loved Burberry. I remember saving for three years to get my first bag before I got signed.”
