Four years later Adele returns to the cover of American Vogue this time with the shoot by the legendary Annie Leibovitz. Clad by magazine’s Fashion Editor Tonne Goodman in a custom dress from Burberry Spring Summer 2016 collection the songstress continues with the best of new collections in the corresponding story.

Adele also wears striking dresses from Erdem, Giambattista Valli, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and once again Burberry. Discover more after the jump:

Once ‘Hello’ came out, I felt like I’d got nothing to prove. I’m just going to sing now because I want to, and I’ll make records when I want to and not because someone is forcing me to do it.
