Talk about a triple threat as Alicia Keys, Rita Ora and Adele have covers for ELLE Magazine’s Women in Music Issue.
For the shoot, Adele– who’s currently on the market for a wedding dress– wore an elegant Alberta Ferretti dress. She kept her make-up simple and rocked a retro swoop and ponytails. “The set reflected Adele’s retro crooner style perfectly,” said creative director, Joe Zee. “It was also my birthday, and she sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to me—best present ever!”
We’ve never seen Alicia Keys look like this before, sporting a Jean Paul Gaultier turtleneck, red lip and gelled mane. Apparently her edge was inspired by Grace Jones, who was playing during the shoot.
And the lovely Rita Ora ditched her bleach blond locs for a brunette color and elegant floral headpiece. She wore a Maison Martin Margiela couture dress that complimented her clean make-up.
Make sure to pick up the issue on stands, April 23!
