The 92nd Academy Awards came and went, but some fans are still hooked on Adele’s appearance at the Oscars after party.
The 32-year-old songstress rocked a leopard print dress and was seen in picture with Polish TV host Kinga Rusin. We already knew that the Grammy winner had lost a lot of weight recently, but she’s looking way different these days.
Insiders at the party said “she looked like herself but also so different—beautiful but almost unrecognisable.” Another commented that she “looked striking and so tall. (She) had a tiny waist and beautiful hourglass figure in a beaded leopard dress.”
While many fans are waiting for her to release her next album (think she’ll go with “32”?), others are more interested in the singer’s major body transformation. How did Adele lost 100 pounds (45kg)? The A-lister hasn’t spoken publicly about her weight loss, but here’s what we know:
1. She’s been sweating it out instead of crying.
Adele stunned everyone when she attended Drake’s birthday party in October 2019. She cheekily wrote, “I used to cry by now I sweat.”
2. Commitment to self care.

This is 31…thank fucking god 💀 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once. Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually 😂 Bunch of fucking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you. Chin up eh ❤️
Turning 30 is a big milestone. Last year, Adele wrote that she’ll be “making a lot of changes and learning to love herself”. She also left an encouraging message, urging everyone to:
“Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realised that that is more than enough.”
3. Her focus has been on health and not weight loss.
A source close to the singer has shared that Adele’s weight loss journey came as a result of her wanting to be the best mom she can be to her son, Angelo. “It’s easy to just focus on her physical transformation, but this is really about something bigger,” the source said.
The insider continued, “She got to the point where she didn’t feel great. She knew she had to change something because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible. Her whole focus during the weight loss journey has really how been all about how she can be healthier and how can she treat her body better. It was never about losing weight.”
4. Stepping up her workouts.
Some find working out fun, while others feel the opposite. The picture above says it all, doesn’t it? Still, Adele apparently exercises 3 times a week – alternating between cross-training and Pilates.
“Adele never cared about or liked working out,” an insider revealed. “(Now) she does 60-minute sessions that include cardio, circuit training, and Pilates … She’s found a routine that’s working for her and is enjoying it more.”
5. Strict diet
Her weight loss can also be attributed to her decision in cutting down drinking and eating healthier food. Several outlets have also claimed that she’s been following the Sirtfood diet. It limits caloric intake to 1,000 calories a day in the beginning and focuses on nutrient-rich options that include “sirtuins,” like dark chocolate, red wine, and green juices. It’s meant to rev up one’s metabolism.
