I’m not plus-size, but as a fashion-loving girl who’s small-framed and somewhat oddly proportioned, I completely sympathize with the plight that is finding quality clothing that not only just kind of fits but truly flatters. It can be incomprehensibly difficult to style a woman who doesn’t adhere to the slim, often straight up-and-down silhouette that designers cater to (see: the gorgeous Christina Hendricks and her many sartorial misses). Adele — and, giving credit where credit is due, her stylist — is the consummate example of a woman who dresses beautifully for her shape, oftentimes with the help of Burberry Prorsum creative director Christopher Bailey.
Now, rumors are rumors, but this is one that’s too exciting not to spread: Vogue UK reported this morning that the chanteuse may have been approached by Bailey to be not only an ambassador for the quintessentially British fashion house, but also to collaborate on a bespoke line for plus-size women. Neither Burberry nor Adele have commented on the potential partnership, so for now it’s all just hearsay… but wouldn’t it be awesome? [Fashionista]
