Adele has never looked more stunning…how life after marriage is clearly suiting the singer

At her lavish 31st birthday party back in May, global singing star Adele told her 31.8million followers on Instagram that the year ahead would be a ‘big’ one as she vowed to ‘spend it all on myself’.

And, clearly, just two months on from the announcement that her three-year marriage to Simon Konecki, 45, was over, the Hello singer is staying more than true to her word. 

At the final date of the Spice Girls tour in London on Saturday night, Adele, who has a son Angelo, six, with Konecki, revealed her divorce look – and the star has never appeared so confident, with a ‘California-style’ hair-do.  

Looking toned in a sleek black polo neck and wide-legged floral print flares by Etro, the star danced in the aisles, partied with the band and followed up with a video of herself singing in the back of her car on the way to the gig.

Obviously having the time of her life, Adele looks transformed. Her highlighted locks are longer, tousled and tumbling and the star’s subtle, smokey make-up accentuated her amazing cheekbones, with long lashes and a pair of strong brows showing off her striking blue eyes.

‘IT’S GIRL NEXT DOOR…BUT SEXY’: ADELE’S NEW HAIR 

Expert stylist James Johnson (iamjamesjohnson.com) gives his approval on Adele’s latest hair style, calling it a ‘a tousled, Californian-style beachy look’.

The stylist told Femail: ‘She’s a mum but this look is far from mumsy and probably owes a lot to the amount of time she spends in Los Angeles.’

He says the longer, highlighted look is ‘very American, very beachy’ but still very much in line with the singer’s girl next door vibe. 

How to create it? ‘Use a large barrel tong and make sure the waves created are pushed back from the face. 

‘It should then be brushed out, loose and cool…the more undone it looks, the better’ 

Back in April, a representative for the couple announced their relationship was over.  And less than two weeks later, the star told her fans that she vowed to ‘remember who she is.’  

At her birthday party last month, the Tottenham native told fans on social media: ’30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. 

  ‘No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay.

She continued: ’31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.’

While it’s unclear whether the singer is legally divorced yet, sources claimed shortly after their official split that the pair had been ‘living separate lives for years.’ 

In December, the star visited the Hubb Community Kitchen in west London, which provides refuge and comfort for the community devastated by the Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017.  

Looking stylish in an emerald green woolen coat with billowing navy polka dot bow, the singer showed her support for the community’s recovery, chatting and posing for photos with those working in the kitchen.  

And last month, the star rang in her 31st birthday in style as she partied with A-listers in Beverly Hills.

The down-to-earth Brit chose a Gatsby-theme for her special day and chose the epic $135million iconic mansion used in the Godfather movie for the venue.

The 29-bedroom Mediterranean-inspired mansion was the setting of the famous scene with the severed, bloody horse head in the bed.

Adele shared a few black and white images from the party, showing off her stunning dress – a pleated dress by Givenchy – and hair, which was curled and styled into a 20s ‘do. 

While Adele hasn’t released any new music or toured in the last 18 months, her fortune continues to spiral.

The London-born singer is said to now be worth £150 million, up from £140 million in 2017. A 121-date tour which ended in the summer of 2017 netted her £42 million alone.

Back in 2015, when she released her album 25, she reflected that she was still living the same, low-key life as before, but now shopped at Waitrose rather than Tesco.
