Adele didn’t come out for the Grammys, but she made a surprise—and relatively low-key—appearance at the Oscar after parties last night. People reports that the singer was at Guy Oseary’s Oscars party, which Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian also attended. “She looked like herself but also so different—beautiful but almost unrecognizable,” a source told the outlet.
A second source told People that Adele “looked striking and so tall. [She] had a tiny waist and beautiful hourglass figure in a beaded leopard dress.”
She was in a partying mood, the source added: “She took her shoes off and danced on the dance floor. She sat with Nicole Richie and was chatting for a while.”
Russian TV host Kinga Rusin was lucky enough to get a photo with Adele that she shared to her Instagram. Adele’s animal print dress can clearly be seen:
Adele’s outing this weekend comes amid reports that the singer plans to release new music this year. A source told People back in September that Adele was preparing herself to step back into the public spotlight to share it.
“She is definitely getting ready both mentally and physically to promote new music. It seems it will happen later this year,” a source close to Adele said. “She talks about last year as a very difficult year, and she’s said in the past that creating new music is almost like therapy. You can tell that she is ready to share with her fans.”
