Is Anna Wintour getting softer? Vogue editor styles plus-size Adele

February 9, 2009 |  9:00 am

84700813 Last night, Brit darling Adele nabbed two Grammys and the approval of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who styled her in the Barbara Tfank dress she wore to the Grammys. Here's what she had to say about meeting the style Svengali, from New York magazine's blog,  the Cut:

"It was just like 'The Devil Wears Prada,' Adele said. Then Wintour offered to style her for the [Grammys], she added in disbelief. "I got a really nice dress," Adele said. "I don't ever wear dresses. I wear dresses with tights and flat shoes and a cardigan. But I am going to get my boobs out and everything. It's going to be quite a big deal."

Um, I don't see any cleavage, so Adele might have jumped the gun on the whole boobs thing. I do like her retro vibe though. She looks like a 1960s singer, with her cat-eye makeup and bouffant ponytail. Most importantly, Adele, 20, looks so comfortable and thrilled to be a in a dress. The cinched waist gives her a sexy silhouette and the length -- falling just at the knee -- is flattering too. Bravo, Anna. You managed to make both you and Adele look good.

What do you think: Yum or ho-hum?
