Adele Illuminates Elle’s 2013 Women In Music Issue

Elle magazine and a few women in music sing praises for Adele in the just revealed "Women In Music" 2013 issue.

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.
