Earrings and a caftan are a timeless look, according to the Datalounge.
The one fatter than Adele is Tiifan Thiessen's fat face!
Yeah, she's a big girl, but she looks pretty damnn good. The designer was smart to have a small print on the sleeves, to break up the scale. Thumbs up in my book.
Thanks for starting this thread. I don't have cable so I can't watch the red carpet.
I like it. It's kinda awful, but there are hints of Leigh Bowery, Shirley Bassey, and Divine in that look. She also has Elizabethan skin and should wear a ruff.
It's awful but I like it and I think she looks good in it. Alice in Wonderland shit.
Awful. Set the dress on fire.
She looks like Mother Ginger from The Nutcracker ballet.
The color is great. The cut is great.
It's the flower pattern on it that takes it into Grandma's curtains territory.
Had she done that color/cut with a different texture, it would have been fine.
Breaking News: She didn't wear black!
I think she and the dress are stunning.
It's a hideous dress, and I love her for it! I love Adele. I will always love Adele. I hope and pray she wins the Oscar for Skyfall. God love her, she is just herself.
I love the dress. The fit is great on her and I'm glad it's a pattern and not a basic solid color.
She looks like she is channeling Melissa McCarthy!
That is really sad. She looks great up top and then BAM!. Why do that?
Was she there to promote her autobiography where she talks about her husband coming out and what it was like to work with Lisa Welchel on the set?
Thanks DLers, I just floated there from up the estuary.
Many of us have great difficulty hiding the fact that deep down we want to be a cartoon character, hell, where would Comic-con be without us. Adele is simply one of us. Too bad she had to act out at a back slapping-self awards show. No matter, I love the girl and she could appear naked with all her goose bumps showing and I would still love her. It's not what she wears that makes her loved or great.
Couture dress, specially designed for her by Karl Lagerfeld.

Adele has watched "Bridemaids" too many times.
I love everything - gorgeous, but the way the waist-to-bottom of the dress falls.
It's one of those dresses that are so wrong it's good. I think she pulls it off.
I love the dress. Her lovely face set off in a flower garden. She British you know. She doesn't have to dress like a cunt in England.
The shoes are too much.
She irritates me for some reason. Her singing voice is ok but it's not amazing. She can't dance or put on a performance so all she has is that boring singing voice. Her speaking voice is cring-worthy and trashy.
The dress suits her, tacky and nasty.
It looks like a giant head scarf.
She looks like Varla Jean Merman.
Isn't Adele that fat tasteless cunt that set the music industry on it's ear?
That dress is a miss. She should have listened to her gay friends.

Aaron Schock is in the house!
There is another new I hate adele thread , probably from the same person . Madonna, Gaga, Beoncé etc.. more vitriol from a self loathing queen.Boring. I like her ..But I have to say when I saw that dress It reminded me of those hideous floor length dresses from the 70's
Adele's idol is Peggy Lee. Most of us on DL are too young to know who Peggy Lee was. She was an American singer much in the style of Adele. Actually, Adele is much in the style of Peggy Lee. I loved Peggy Lee's style of singing and that automatically caught my attention the first time I heard Adele.
Adele could leave music and never look back. Her previous career as a grand piano leg model could be revived in a heart beat. Steinway, Baldwin, Yamaha and many other piano manufacturers have never recovered from her segue way into pop music.
She's gonna get it from the Fashion Police.
Oh, don't get me started, OP.
I have second hand embarrassment for you, R38.
She is a young version of Hyacynthe Bucket. She could give a shit what people say about her- but it is a hideous dress. She seems very common from a British lower class neighborhood
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
