Many would agree that the highlight of the 54th Grammy Awards was watching Adele perform "Rolling in the Deep" and watching her win her many awards including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and more. It was a sweep that is well deserved for the woman who moved us with torch songs on her album "21." We found ourselves singing with the "Someone Like You" performer in the shower, at the gym or sitting at our desks.

If you caught the 23-year-old on "60 minutes," Anderson Cooper asked about her "anti-pop star" image. "One of the things that people remark on you is that you don't really fit the mold of the other stars who are out there right now performing, like Rihanna or Beyonce. Even your appearance is not fitting the mold. Do you think a lot about that?" It was an appropriate question, fresh off the Karl Lagerfeld diss where the designer called Adele "too fat."

But the adorable singer, in her Cockney English, made it clear that not fitting the mold is not a problem for her. "Even if I did have, you know, a 'Sports Illustrated' body, I'd still wear elegant clothes," Adele said. "I ain't lookin' like no 'slapper'. I wouldn't do it. I don't appreciate stuff like that."

While Katy Perry and Rihanna have all been celebrated for their looks, has Adele captured a style that is more beautiful than any of her skinnier colleagues? Katy Perry has ditched her pink hair for blue hair. Rihanna has ditched her red hair for blonde. But some would argue it's their hairstylists they should ditch.

Adele's blonde hair, styled in a 60s do, perfectly suits her strong facial features and long black eyelashes. Teaming the hair and makeup with black cocktail dresses makes for a perfect look.

The Grammys is not the Academy Awards when it comes to fashion. At the Oscars, you can expect the actresses in gorgeous gowns and the actors in black tuxes. But at the world's most popular music celebration, anything goes.

Adele keeps it simple, yet elegant, and all eyes were on her. She's a healthy, fun-loving, beautiful star, and she can help any female who is not a size 0 feel better about it.
