Adele looked stunning in an egyptian inspried dress at the 45th annual Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts in Somerset, England. The handmade silk georgette dress in deep green took more than 200 hours to complete. The dress which was designed by Parisian fashion designer Chloé, has sparked a series of reactions, especially in Egypt.
Was Adele’s Dress Inspired by the 70’s Style?
The dress draws comparison to the traditional Kaftan or Caftan. However, In a recent interview, Waight-Keller- the British creative director of Chloe, in charge of creating Adele’s design told The Hollywood Reporter that Adele’s Glastonbury dress design was inspired by the ’60s and ’70s era . As a result, the media blames the fashion house for failing to mention that the gown’s embroideries and style was inspired by the Egyptian heritage. The clothing represents the traditional wedding dress famous in the Egyptian oasis Siwa.
In an interview to the Telegrah “Waight-Keller explained her seventies fixation; ‘I grew up in that era,’ Waight Keller says, ‘and I think it’s something that still has a massive influence in the brand; it has always dipped into that spirit.’ It’s a sentiment which blends perfectly with Paul’s styling strategy for the Someone Like You singer.”
