I love Adele. I love that song! ...but I winced every time I saw that zipper! IMO it should have been invisible- and the way it didn't lie flat was just awful!

Didn't notice the zipper. It's Armani Prive (which just goes to show, money can't buy EVERYTHING...LOL)

Didn't notice the zipper either. I really love her voice it's so hard for me to believe she's only 23. I thought she was at least 30.

The one pictured above is the one she wore on the red carpet and was lovely. The one jr is referring to is the one she wore to perform and accept all her awards.

I did notice the exposed zipper and it bothered me too. I know this was a "thing" in the past few years but I'm over it. I wasn't a big fan of the dress overall either. I didn't like the satin under-bodice that showed through the sheer, polka-dot top and sleeves. It didn't fit well and looked cheap.

But I love her and think she is gorgeous.

Yeah, I wondered what was up with that underlay too- it almost looked white. Nude or black would've been better....but, then again, think about what Fergie wore !!

I noticed the zipper and figured it was part of the "look." I liked all of Adele's dresses for the Grammys.

As for Niki Minaj . . .

I noticed the zipper and just thought it was a new fad. THe latest Burda Color Block dress has a zipper like that in it. Personnally, I would have put in an invisible zipper. I have never been one to go with the latest fad.
On another note I was sooooo happy for Adele she has really been through a rough time with vocal surgery and to come back with this many Grammy's was just fantastic.
