Vanity Fair just released its new December 2016 cover, starring Adele, and we're completely obsessed. The photo shoot features the singer in some of the most striking looks we've ever seen her wear, from a red gown billowing in the wind to an embellished tulle dress. (Sidenote: She would look stunning in either of these looks at the Grammys in just a few short months.)
In the accompanying interview, Adele discussed everything from her album writing strategy to her 4-year-old son, but we immediately zeroed in on her wise words about the importance of female mentors in her life. "Every day as I get older, I appreciate women more and more," she told Vanity Fair. "When you're between the ages of 15 and 19, maybe you see women as competition, as opposed to lifesavers and people that hold your hand and have experienced pretty much everything that you have. So the more women in my life the better." Amen to that.
