SHE broke the internet more than any other celeb this year, annoying fans with selective snaps of her incredible weight loss.
And after Adele, 32, shed seven stones from a mix of strict diet and exercise, it's no surprise she's celebrating her transformation since she unveiled it on Instagram in May.
Adele's incredible transformation was teased back at the Post-Party Oscars back in February
Over the weekend, she unveiled another unrecognizable new look with curly hair and a face stripped of her signature eyeliner and heavy lashes when she paid tribute to Beyonce.
The London-born singer's ever-changing image coincides with a new chapter in her life after breaking up with husband Simon Konecki, 46, last year and preparing to release her fifth album after a five-year hiatus.
"I think the most important point is to show how happy she is after their breakup in order to reassure her large following," says social media expert Andy Barr, founder of digital PR and social agency 10 Yetis.
"For the wishful thinkers among us, we hope they'll increase their social media spending for a possible album or single release!"

"Adele has always found me to be a person who is confident and comfortable in their skin – regardless of their size," says stylist Susie Hasler, founder of Styled by Susie.
"When she was taller, she dressed incredibly well for her shape – and so has the singer since she lost weight."
Every post by Adele, mother of seven-year-old son Angelo, was showered with likes and positive comments – but what are the hidden messages behind the inspiring images?
Here Susie, Andy, and psychologist Susan Marchant-Haycox examine the meaning of Adele's ever-changing appearance.

Devoted fan Adele joined the Spice Girls on their 2019 reunion tour, two months after she announced that she would break up with her husband, the charity boss, after five years.
The gig seemed like exactly the boost she needed, and Adele, who has been a huge fan of the '90s icons since she was ten, was thrilled to pose backstage with them.
The social media expert says: "Adele, who poses with one of the most iconic girl groups of all time, shows that she feels totally at ease with these sexy 90s legends and screams for independence and girl power!"
"This is clearly a common post-split issue."
The psychologist says: "Fame brought some insecurities to the Spice Girls, which they have now overcome, like Adele.
"The sign V for victory is a confirmation that perhaps obstacles have been overcome and freedom and liberation have finally been achieved."

The star's first real look at the slender new figure came courtesy of a fan who met her on a beach in the Caribbean resort of Anguilla in January.
The new single star was on vacation with Harry Styles and James Corden and son Angelo.
The psychologist says: "The picture of Adele alone shows a freshness.
"Your posture is relaxed and confident – it shows more of your body than before."
The social media expert says: "Another picture of Adele with a beaming smile is amazing to see and clearly shows how satisfied she is.
"I'm sure it is no coincidence that there are so many pictures of her looking happy on their own."
The "proud" weight loss revealed

There had been evidence of weight loss before the singer's birthday, on the beach in the Caribbean, and a month later at the Oscars.
But it was the birthday snap she released in May to thank her fans for their kind wishes that broke the internet.
The freshly slim singer, who dropped a huge Siebenstein through strict diet and training with a personal trainer, posed in a black mini dress in front of her house and looked completely unrecognizable.
The stylist says: "Adele's style has changed from a more formal look with glamorous, long, baggy dresses to shorter, figure-hugging dresses.
"Every outfit – before and after the weight change – has been carefully chosen to match its shape and shade."
The psychologist says: "This is a stunning picture of Adele looking younger, with longer hair, happier and with a completely different style of clothing.
"She no longer hides her body, but shows her slimmer with great 'needles'. It is said 'that is a different and more self-confident me.'"
The social media expert says: "When social media is good for anything, it screams body positivity and Adele is no different, despite her normally muted social media output.
"The nature of the images and the increase in her social media activity are testament to how much Adele is proud of her new look, which will no doubt increase her popularity as body-conscious celebrities are often praised by the public."
The exotic, sexy superstar

The Skyfall singer looked like the Bond girl every inch when she celebrated her birthday with friend Nicole Richie in May.
Although it was shot around the same time, the sexy smoldering look, glamorous outfit, and figure-hugging mini contrasted starkly with the smiling girl next door in the weight loss picture.
The social media expert says: “Single Life may just have been the tonic to help Adele love each other again, and her pictures show – or at least show – that she is happy without her ex.
"Posting pictures of how bright and healthy you will be after a breakup is a surefire way to show that you are fine."
The psychologist says: "Breaking up can often lead to severe weight loss or gain, and in Adele's case, it worked well.
"It boosted her self-image and self-esteem and turned that natural beauty into an exotic, sexy superstar.
"To accommodate her weight loss, the singer has also changed her wardrobe from long dresses to figure-hugging dresses.
"She is teeming with sexuality and looking to peace with herself – which her fans adore more."

Like proud slims when stepping into oversized old trousers, Adele couldn't resist taking off her iconic Glastonbury beaded dress during a lockdown re-show of her set.
The post was a timely reminder of how much weight she had lost since that gig in 2016.
The stylist says: "By wearing the outfit she wore at Glastonbury, the message to her fans is that she is still the same talented and personable person who they fell in love with all those years ago.
"She is confident and happy, always looks flawless – and women will always love her."
The psychologist says: "Donning an iconic dress from the past is a reminder of what she was … but now it goes on.
"Divorce is traumatic and depressing for everyone, but for Adele it meant a change from a mental and physical point of view and she confronts both aspects directly."
Confident through the "real me"

Fans of the Chasing Pavements star are used to seeing her in heavy eye make-up and fabulous clothes.
So that recent moment of relaxing at home in her sweatpants and makeup-free T-shirt was a refreshing glimpse at Adele off duty.
The caption – "five ciders in" – was a typically down to earth message that she's still one of us.
The psychologist says: "Again Adele reveals her self-confidence.
"This completely natural look and pose is revealing … no props, just a picture of some who are comfortable."
Au naturale & # 39; in total control & # 39;

The singer's latest post featured a new curly style and gossip-free face as she posed in front of artwork for Beyonce's album Black is King.
The psychologist says: "This shows Adele with a natural angelic face.
"She returns to reality and naturalness and reveals a 'new' confidence in herself. She has deprived herself of all artificial make-up help.
"How many of us would do without makeup? This picture certainly shows that Adele is in a different mode in her life. And it's a change for the better."

The social media expert says: "While the frequent and dramatic hair changes can be down to something as simple as playing with styles or even being bored, it is common with breakups, especially when it comes to posting on social media.
"Hair color is something that you have complete control over. So if you change it dramatically, you have that control."
