Adele.. curvy is in fashion...!

Bombshell: Adele's Cosmopolitan cover shows her size 16 curves - unlike one she did for Vogue two months ago

Cropped: Vogue only showed the singer's face on its cover two months ago

Making progress: Italian Vogue celebrated 'real beauty' by putting three plus-size models on its cover in July. And Love magazine featured a nude Beth Ditto on the cover of its debut issue in 2009
She's already graced the cover of Vogue. But Adele's latest glossy cover is likely to win far more favour with the average British woman.
The singer, whose UK size 16 body was cropped out on Vogue's October cover, is pictured from her head to her hips in Dolce & Gabbana leopard-print on the front of next month's Cosmopolitan magazine.
Looking every inch the bombshell, the 23-year-old stands with her hands at her waist, looking defiantly at the camera.

The magazine, quite rightly, breaks the model mould in putting Adele on its cover. She is no size zero, but nor is she unhealthy-looking, making her a positive role model for women in the UK, given that the average dress size is also a 16.
