Are you sitting down? Super-singer Adele is turning just 24 on Saturday, May 5th, which means the British singing sensation has done in 23 years what it takes most musicians decades to accomplish. Not only did she win six Grammys this year for her album 21, but she's also set some seriously impressive records, like being the first female artist to have the longest running number one album (again, 21) in Billboard history. Oh, and lest we forget, Time magazine just named her one of the most influential people in the world.
And while her voice is certainly at once massive and mesmerizing, Adele also has a subtle, sweet beauty and style that has made her one of the fashion world's most beloved muses (she even appeared on the cover of March Vogue). Typically seen in all black, she's a fan of classic attire like full skirts and '50's-inspired coifs accessorized with bold statement jewelry. When she's not performing, her style is laid back and effortlessly cool, a testament to the fact that with all the girl's grand success, she still remains true to who she is.
To celebrate her birthday on May 5th, take a look back at how Adele's style has evolved over the years.
