One noteworthy guest who’s been getting lots of attention is Adele, who showed off her slimmy trimmy bawwwdy in a leopard sequin gown.
Gorgeous right. Apparently Adele wasn’t aiming to drop pounds — just hoping to get healthier when she started losing weight after laying off liquor and upping her workouts to cross train and do Pilates.
Looking good girl.
