“Rumor Has It” that Adele is narrowing down her wedding dress choices, and Jenny Packham is in the lead.

The British designer, who is loved by stars including Princess Kate, was last worn by the soulful singer at the Oscars. And though Packham’s reps won’t comment on whether the two are talking, we’re already excited about the prospect of that collaboration, so we picked three dresses we’d love to see her in at her wedding to love Simon Konecki.

First Bradley Cooper showed up to the Independent Spirit Awards last Saturday sporting some extremely voluminous hair. Then, Melissa McCarthy arrived at the Academy Awards with a do so elevated, it earned her a place in our roundup of the night’s most memorable style moments.

And the actress wasn’t the only star who took her hair to astonishing heights on Sunday. Adele worked her signature half-up teased look on the red carpet, before switching to a full-bodied blowout during her “Skyfall” performance, and we feel bad for whoever had to sit behind Maria Menounos and her super-size mane.

Jennifer Lawrence: When you’re wearing something as dramatic as that breathtaking Dior gown, you don’t need much else! So J. Law‘s makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, went minimal with makeup, using Dior Addict lipstick in Beige Casual #222 to create a mauve lip. Manicurist April Foreman went a similar route, complementing the winner’s dress with CoverGirl Outlast Nail Gloss in Forever Frosted; an understated, ballet-inspired color.

Adele at the Oscars: 'I Feel Like Beyoncé!'

It isn’t proper diva etiquette to admit that you’re inspired by other singing superstars — but Adele is no ordinary diva.

Before hitting the stage to perform “Skyfall,” her Oscar-winning James Bond theme, the British singer dished to ABC’s pre-show that her performance look made her feel “like Beyoncé.”

It wasn’t the Burberry dress itself that reminded her so much of the fellow new mom, though. It was because the crystal-embroidered silk dress was so heavy (“15 kilos!” she joked) that it was hard to perform in.

Oscar rehearsals made Adele question how Beyoncé sings and dances in her heavily embellished performance numbers. “I take a breath to do a big note,” she said, illustrating with a huge gasp. “It’s a bit difficult!”

But from her flawless, modern hair (a switch-up from the ’60s inspired do she wore on the red carpet) to her big, belting performance, we bet Beyoncé was at home taking some notes herself. Tell us: What did you think of Adele’s performance? Did you prefer her red carpet hair or her performance look?
