This weekend in Las Vegas, Adele kicked off her five month-long residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Originally set to start performing in January, the singer famously postponed the show a day before its premiere, saying it simply “wasn’t ready.” The delay was certainly worth the wait: Adele performed her hits on a stage complete with dramatic fire and rain effects, all the while wearing a custom look designed by Schiaparelli’s Daniel Roseberry. (Adele has been a big Schiaparelli wearer as of late.)
Her Vegas-ready look played into Adele’s signature glamorous, Old Hollywood style. It included a black, silk-velvet column gown with a bateau neckline, and was punctuated with a drop-waist satin sash, which was fastened with a golden bijoux buckle adorned with pavé crystals. Like so many of Adele’s winning stage looks, it was modern showgirl attire—one that demands a stage, basically. And with five months of shows to come, here’s hoping that there will be many more custom creations from the fashion house to be unveiled. It’s clearly already off to a strong start.
