When Adele sings, talks, poses for a photo shoot, & posts on Instagram, the world stops & for good reason! ELLE knows this, which is why the 15-time Grammy winner is featured on the coveted September issue cover in all of her diva glory, beauty, & style. In the article, written by Emma Carmichael & photographed by Mario Sorrenti, Adele discusses the heartbreak behind cancelling her Las Vegas residency, being a mother to her 9-year-old son Angelo, the authenticity of her performances, her continued excitement to share her recent album 30 with audiences, & her relationship with sports agent Rich Paul.
For her show in London earlier this year, Adele recounts the audience’s response to her hit ballad “Someone Like You,” stating, “I wrote that on my own, in my little tiny flat, when I was 21…The fact that they all still remember the words and love the song, it was just incredible.” Also, the singer cherishes & still learns from the early days of her career to keep her grounded, sharing, “I remember writing 19 very, very much, and going from the studio to meet my friends at the pub. I remember getting on the Tube and going to every meeting I had, and I remember going to after-parties of my friends’ little gigs. I remember all of those things, and I remember all of the first times I did something. I remember them even when I’m doing them for the millionth time.”
Singer and actress Olivia Newton-John passed away yesterday at the age of 73. The beloved Australian star had been battling cancer on & off since the early 1990s, but her legacy will continue to brighten the lives & imaginations of audiences forever with her memorable roles as Sandy in Grease & Kira in Xanadu, along with her 26 studio albums. Aside from Olivia’s remarkable stage & big screen talents, she remains one of fashion’s most underrated & timeless icons, especially after such a long career that endured through many decades of fashion risks, frills, & hairstyles!
Whether Olivia was channeling the mod looks of the 60s, bell-bottoms & peasant dresses of the 70s, pastels & sparkle in the 80s, or tailored menswear inspiration, Olivia’s style has inspired even today’s trendsetters & entertainers. Many of Olivia’s past outfits are similar what we see now on stars like Gigi Hadid, Hailee Steinfeld, Drew Barrymore, & Keira Knightley! Take a look at the gallery below at some of Olivia’s most stylish ensembles from the red carpet, photo shoots, film stills, performances, & more:

I could easily gather a 500+ image gallery of Jennifer’s red carpet style to mark the occasion, but instead, I decided to put the spotlight on her performance looks, which are always a sparkling combination of glamour, surprises, & sexiness. Fringe, sequins, rhinestones, heels, belts, & matching accessories are essentials for most of the pop star’s looks, ranging from full on catsuits to glittering bodysuits & tights.

The time has finally come for Jennifer Lopez‘s highly anticipated documentary Halftime to begin streaming on Netflix! While I haven’t watched it yet, it’s already added to My List & I can’t wait to see what the multi-hyphenate powerhouse reveals about her famed performance at Super Bowl LIV halftime with Shakira in 2020–the same year cinephiles were championing for Lopez to earn her first Academy Award nomination for her role as Ramona in Hustlers. Halftime has already premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, earning praise for its intimate portrayal of the actress-singer’s vulnerability regarding the trials of both success and failure in the public eye for her professional accomplishments and personal relationships.
