Adele Got Tipsy and Tried on Her 2016 Glastonbury Festival Chloé Dress


Adele was rolling in the “5 ciders” deep while reliving her headliner performance at the 2016 Glastonbury festival on Saturday.

As it was canceled this year due to the pandemic, the BBC is currently re-airing some of the festival’s most iconic past performances. The pop star shared two images on Instagram over the weekend showing herself watching her own set on TV and dancing along to her music at home. In the images captioned “5 ciders in,” Adele wears an oversized white t-shirt and sparkly grey sweatpants while cooling herself off with a portable fan before changing into the same bespoke Chloé gown she wore while performing at the festival.

The green, 70s-inspired dress, designed by Clare Waight-Keller for the brand, features flute sleeves, a floor-length skirt, and an ornate keyhole bodice that took 200 hours to create, as all of the button and shell adornments had to be embroidered by hand.

With couture like this in the closet, who amongst us could resist the allure of doing a tipsy quarantine fashion show for our friends and 37 million Instagram followers?
