Adele attended the 65th Annual Grammy Awards this evening, and stunned in a  velvet gown from Louis Vuitton.

The statement burgundy dress (a favourite hue of The Princess of Wales) featured a dramatic ruffled silk collar, and was teamed with dazzling diamond cluster earrings. For glam the Rolling in the Deep hitmaker opted for her signature cat-eye and side swept old-Hollywood inspired curls. The industry icon was joined at the show by longtime boyfriend Rich Paul, but opted to eschew the red carpet in favor of simply attending the ceremony.

Adele met 'The Rock' for the first time at the 2023 Grammys

At the awards ceremony Adele had a major ‘fan girl’ moment when she was given the chance to meet one of her favourite celebrities. Surprisingly it turns out she’s a huge fan of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who she bumped into in the opening minutes of the Grammys. Host Trevor revealed that the duo were in fact big fans of each other, before making a live introduction in front of the audience,"Adele meet The Rock, The Rock meet Adele." 'The Rock' then appeared behind Adele in order to surprise her, which led to plenty of laughter from the audience.

Could Dwayne Johnson also be a secret Louis Vuitton aficionado? In that gown, it’s likely.
