I am genuinely happy for her weight loss, particularly since she has a child and will be healthier in the long-term. But I dislike the hair & eyebrows. Sometimes weight loss DOES effect vocal quality in performers (paging Maria Callas!). Time will tell if this is the case for her.

I thought she looked great even when she was very fat, though of course that wasn't ideal. I wonder why she's done this big transformation instead of just losing some weight and keeping a similar look?

Granted, a big part of why she seems almost unrecognizable is the difference in makeup (almost none here) as well as the crinkly flat hair. Fluff it up, girl! You look like you just got out of the pool and let your hair dry where it lay.

r10 Adele busted her voice a long time ago. She was told to stop the cigs & booze and not to over-use it. Also, a vocal queen on here once posted a pretty good breakdown of how she was technically not singing properly, potentially putting her voice at risk.

That's probably why she doesn't care about the weight loss viz. its possible effect on her voice. Plus, she's made her multi-millions.

R22 I can't believe I didn't notice that aspect of it, but now I think that's the major reason why she looks so strange, not the weight loss (about which, good for her). I'm pretty bad at spotting false hair on women, so I didn't realize she was wearing wigs before. They looked great on her if this is her natural hairline.

by Anonymousreply 56Last Saturday at 5:47 PM

She's not wearing heavy fake eye lashes or the 60s inspired heavy cat eye look. And obviously the hair is not from the 60s anymore. She'd probably pull off her earlier look fairly well if she decided to go back there. Then again I suspect that look was created to make her seem less of a fattie, and since she's not that any more it's time for something else.

She just needed to lose 15 to 20 pounds from that weight and she would have been in healthy territory while still looking like herself.

She looks like Emily Blunt now that she's lost all that weight. I also thought she carried her weight well when she was at her heaviest, though it obviously was not healthy. I think people underestimate how much weight loss can impact a person's appearance, particularly where their face is concerned. Losing weight often tends to become noticeable on the face first, and a significant amount of weight loss can really change the way a person's face looks.

When did Adele EVER have a remarkable voice?

by Anonymousreply 74Yesterday at 12:00 AM

Every time she sings live (goes on tour) her voice breaks down and she has to have surgery. This is the hallmark of poor vocal technique. I doubt she could do it a third time so I doubt she'll ever tour again. Now she can record for one afternoon then take three weeks off while her voice recovers and then record another afternoon. She certainly has enough money to never worry about working again, but I have heard she's working on a new album.

by Anonymousreply 75Yesterday at 12:11 AM

Look at singers like Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, Bonnie Raitt, Donna Summer (before she died) - they took care of their voices. When I saw Raitt in concert a few years ago, I was shocked at how good her voice sounded. She was suffering from a cold that night but she could still deliver the notes for I Can't Make You Love Me. When she held the note flawlessly at one point in the song, we all clapped. And the woman was already in her late '60s.

Singers like Adele, Mariah, Whitney (RIP), didn't take care of their voices.

by Anonymousreply 76Yesterday at 12:20 AM

The weight loss will definitely affect the sound of her voice, it always does. The sound will be thinner just like the body.

[quote]She was prettier as a fat girl.

Gosh, you're naive.

Below is a picture of her from 6 years ago, when she was still very chubby. There were, it is true, pictures of her in which she looked beautiful, but this was the result, not of her natural features, much less of her large body shape, but of the power of cosmetics. The same applies to all female celebrities: their beauty depends more on the skill of their makeup artists than on any natural gifts. When Adele makes her return to the stage, evidently after passing through the hands of stylists and the entire fashion crew, I have no doubt that she'll look as stunning as she had always been.

She didn't lose the weight in a healthy way, that's why she looks malnourished. She probably is. That means she's not healthier now simply because she's thinner.

She looks terrible and no, she won't look fine once she goes through the whole beauty routine. How do I know? Because she's done it already and she looked like a 60-year-old trying to pass for 25.

Apart from the drastic weight loss - important to remember that Adele usually wears a shit tonne of makeup. Truckloads of it. Troweled on.

So she does look very different without the heavy makeup. But yes I wouldn't have recognized her either.
