Back in December we broke the news that Adele would cover US Vogue's March spring fashion issue. Well, here it is: the cover has hit the Twitters (we can't pin down the original source). Vogue has a track record of making their celeb covers look a little plastic-y and over retouched but this cover does Adele justice--at least it does her face and, um, boobs justice. She looks gorgeous (albeit very contoured), and, wow, nice rack. But is it distracting? She's not as closely cropped as she was for her Vogue UK photo but she's still cropped. What do you think?
Vogue Cover Rumor Update: Adele Will Cover March, But Taylor Swift Nabs a Cover Too
Earlier today we reported on two conflicting rumors concerning US Vogue's March covergirl: Styleite had it going to Taylor Swift, while WWD heard that Vogue was asking for "special cover outfits" from designers for an Adele cover. Well, we think we've cleared things up. We have it on good authority that Adele is Vogue's March covergirl and Taylor Swift will cover February. It's a big deal that Adele is covering March. March is the spring fashion issue and is the second most important issue following September. The covergirl has to be commercial and appealing to advertisers. And the fact that Vogue has decided on Adele for March, someone who doesn't look like most other Vogue covergirls is a big deal. So kudos to Vogue for going with Adele here--let's just hope they don't give her the British Vogue close-crop treatment.
