ADELE is the cover star of the October Englishwoman issue of Vogue. A celebration of all that has come to define the modern English woman.‘Interviewed by Christa D’Souza, the award-winning singer talks about her career, style and why, if she was the face of anything “it should be full-fat Coke!”. ‘I enjoy being me; I always have done.’

I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I just don’t want that in my life.’

‘It’s just never been an issue – at least, I’ve never hung out with the sort of horrible people who make it an issue. I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.’

The October issue of Vogue is available from Thursday September 8.
