For the cover of her new album, 25, out on 20 November, Adele has done a complete u-turn and gone for a black-and-white close-crop shot (see 21) that focuses on her face (see 19). An early adopter of the failproof feline flick and contouring combination (see 19 and 21), both are back although – wait – her hair looks a little shorter. According to Man About Town magazine, it was shot by Alasdair McLellan. Given her decision to stay firmly out of the spotlight, she’s a sight for sore eyes so we’ll take what we can get.
