Since returning to the spotlight with her latest album, 30, Adele has been having plenty of fun with fashion. Though the singer has always been well dressed, the looks she’s worn lately have been sultry, colorful, and imbued with a sense of fun. Case in point: Her set at the Brit Awards this afternoon, where she wore an electric custom gown by Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli that captured her current mood. A dress fit for a fairytale, the lime green chiffon piece with sequin embroidery was bright and sparkling, also featuring decorative ruffles and voluminous sleeves. Unlike anything Adele has worn previously, the dress lit up the stage during her rousing performance.

For Piccioli, the look embodies the allure of its wearer. “Designing couture confers the gown with a very special aura, making the whole experience unique,” he tells Vogue. “On one hand, the creative process remains the same; on the other, the final output has something magical: the dress resonates with the artist’s personality.” Though the designer and his team received the request from stylist Jamie Mizrahi during the middle of summer leave, they immediately set to work. “No sooner had Adele called, [and] we were working on her dress,” says Piccioli. “Such enthusiasm made possible what, in the beginning, seemed just crazy.”
