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?

Grammys' Style Highs and Lows, According to Tom and Lorenzo

Feb/11/2013 at 12:29 PM ET

One of our favorite things about awards shows (besides our inter-office gown debate, of course) is seeing what style bloggers Tom and Lorenzo have to say about the red carpet. Always incisive and hilarious, they seem to be able to say what we’re thinking without even knowing we’re thinking it. And now the pair takes a break from their packed New York Fashion Week schedule to break down their take on last night’s Grammys style.

Below, they explain their four favorite (and one, er, swing and a miss) looks from the red carpet; roll over to see even more details.

Rihanna in Azzedine Alaïa: “Sometimes its best to subvert people’s expectations and Rihanna
managed just that,” they said of the star’s “vibrant, attention-getting red gown that’s positively demure compared to a lot of her red carpet choices. Add some blown-out hair and she’s rocking some old-school pretty.”

Confession: We were a little disappointed that so many stars actually followed the dress code at the Grammy Awards Sunday night. But even though it was a sea of black dresses and relatively demure looks, there were four ladies who still managed to turn our heads.

Rihanna: We did a double take when we spotted the Barbadian beauty in a wrapped-bodice Azzedine Alaïa creation, but not for the usual (read: revealing) reasons. The star was giving us mega Pon de Replay-era flashbacks between the romantic gown and long, ombré waves.

Wearing a curve-hugging blush Dolce & Gabbana gown, presenter Megan Fox opted for a night off with husband Brian Austin Green, leaving little guy Noah at home.

Adele made her hotly anticipated post-baby debut in a 3/4-length sleeve Burberry dress, finished with simple jewels and a pretty updo. Upon winning an award for her song, “Skyfall,” she admitted she’d come to the Globes not expecting to win, but to enjoy a night out without her baby boy.

How Adele's Gone Incognito in London Lately

If you’re trying to spot Adele in London, look for the lady in the PJs. “I walked through Trafalgar Square on a Saturday afternoon — tourist haven — in pajamas,” the Grammy winner tells Matt Lauer in the upcoming NBC Adele Live in London special.

Even more shocking? The songstress was wearing color. “I’m always in black,” she says. “It was this tracksuit, with a massive green coat and little pink pumps. I had this massive umbrella so no one recognized me.”

The superstar says a few onlookers did do a double-take, but no one approached her. “A couple looked around, but they were like, ‘No … she’s in color and what would she be doing walking around a packed Trafalgar Square on Saturday in pajamas?'” she jokes.
