Adele rocked the look in tribute to the carnival, which celebrates Caribbean culture and interracial tolerance. The event would have taken place August 30 and 31, but is entirely virtual this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The singer was quickly accused of cultural appropriation by some users for the hairstyle and top. However, there were those who saw nothing wrong with how she dressed and slammed those canceling her.
See some reactions on social media:
The Notting Hill Carnival kicked off its first celebration in 1966 and was organized by activist Rhaune Laslett, whose intention was to create a celebration that brought together different cultures and encouraged integration in the neighbourhood's diverse community.
Meanwhile, some months ago, Adele left jaws hanging after she took to social media to share a new photo of herself.
The Hello music star turned 32 on May 5, 2020 and marked her birthday with a new Instagram photo. However, fans were more excited about her new look more than her new age.
Posing in a cute mini black dress, the singer showed off her incredible seven stone weight loss. She shared the photo, thanking her fans for the birthday love, urging them to remain safe.
