Adele shared her outfit for London’s Notting Hill Carnival, the annual cultural festival celebrating “Carnival” culture, which is going digital this year.
The switch hasn’t stopped Adele from showing off her planned outfit in a post to Instagram with the caption: “Happy what would be Notting Hill Carnival my beloved London 🇬🇧🇯🇲”. The photo shows the singer in a cute bikini top with the Jamaican flag and a yellow headdress. She wears her hair in bunches.
A number of celebrities reacted on the photo, including Piers Morgan and Naomi Campbell.

“You look right at home guurrrl,” wrote Zoe Saldana.
Jamaican singer and DJ Popcaan also supported Adele with a black fist and heart emoji.
Adele’s outfit came in for backlash from many others online.

Many others came to Adele’s defence, though.
the only thing wrong with that Adele picture is that she isn't holding a 4 pack of red stripe that she's just paid £10 for

the only thing Adele did “wrong” was get scammed by whoever told her that was a costume. She deserved better. Don’t let your celebrity friends get ripped off by unscrupulous feather merchants.
