A cover image and a few shots from the actual shoot were released by Elle Tuesday, showcasing an elegant Adele and a fun spirited Alicia Keys enjoying what is said to have been a unique and in some ways, a historic shoot.
For the cover shoot, Elle played on Adele's "retro crooner style," with the Grammy winner wearing a vintage lace Alberta Ferretti dress.
During her shoot, Alicia Keys had fun blasting music by Grace Jones and playing with her son, Egypt.
The music issue includes a tribute to Adele and thoughts from fellow recording artists, discussing her award-winning success. Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Barbra Streisand are among those that contributed to the issue.
