Shine like Adele in a sequin embellished dress by Valentino

Adele and her stylist Jamie Mizrahi really pulled out all the stops for the 2022 BRIT Awards. Her looks were everything we could have imagined, and so much more!

The superstar singer went from Armani Prive on the red carpet to a little black dress by Marianna Senchina to accept one of her three awards and this incredible embellished number by Valentino to perform on stage. Divine.

It's not just any old Valentino dress. It was created just for Adele by Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli, and we love the off-shoulder shape, frill detailing and green-gold colour, which changes in the light. Add in a pair of Valentino Garavani shoes and we're swooning.

Following her much-anticipated appearance at the awards, Adele made a low-key exit in her eye-catching black velvet minidress, having ditched her stilettos for comfy slippers.

On the seat next to the star was a packet of slim cigarettes, named as such due to their longer length and smaller circumference, though it's not known if they belonged to Adele or one of her pals.

Adele, used to smoke up to 25 cigarettes a day, but after suffering a vocal cord haemorrhage in October 2011,  forcing her to cancel several performances, she vowed to kick the habit, and sought help from hypnotherapist Max Kirsten.   

The British singer spent three hours with renowned addiction specialist Max Kirsten in August 2015 after five years of failed attempts to stop smoking.

Who is Max Kirsten? 

Max Kirsten is a London-based addiction specialist and hypnotherapist famed for helping celebrities quit smoking.

He has completed many thousands of hours of clinical work, specializing in smoking cessation, chronic addictions, anxiety and anxiety related insomnia, weight loss, public speaking and peak performance anxiety.

Kirsten has been practicing his unique combination of hypnotherapy, NLP and cognitive behavioral techniques (CBT) for over 15 years

His clients include Adele, Tom Hardy and Ewan McGregor, who all credit him with helping to quit their smoking habit.

It's thought Adele spent three hours at his clinic in west London, and was able to quit her habit in 2015.

Ewan, who publicly credited Max with helping him quit, previously said: 'I didn’t think I would ever be able to give up and he (Max) made it effortless – very easy'

It's thought her treatment involved pre-hypnotherapy discussion to better understand the nature of her habit

Kirsten has since launched an app, titled Quit Smoking Now, which includes more than 10 hours of recorded audio content including advice on how to repair and re-grow your lungs.

She had a £295 session with Harley Street hypnotist Susan Hepburn in 2014 in an attempt to give up for good but relapsed.

That year she told Rolling Stone she'd finally knocked the habit on the head in a Rolling Stone interview, but didn’t explain how.

'I absolutely loved it, but it's not that f****** cool when I'm dying from a smoking-related illness and my kid is, like, devastated,' she said. 

Detailing her decision to give up the habit, she told The Mirror that year: 'If I'd carried on smoking, I'd probably have died from a smoking-related illness, and I think that's really bad.

'If I was dying from lung cancer I would have potentially given it to myself and that wouldn't be something I'd be proud of,

Kirsten, has been practicing his unique combination of hypnotherapy, NLP and cognitive behavioral techniques (CBT) for over 15 years from his London clinic, and his Quit Smoking Now App has more than 10 hours of recorded audio content including advice on how to repair and re-grow your lungs.

He said: 'My Quit Smoking App will substantially improve your circulation in just 3 weeks. Not only will your skin look younger and smoother, your lungs will begin to increase in size by up to 30 percent, making any form of exercise, including sex much easier.

'For a start you’ll no longer have 'ashtray breath' or wheeze like you're going to pass out during sex.

'Stopping smoking and nicotine not only improves the circulation to your hands and feet, it improves blood flow throughout your body including to your sexual organs whether you're a man or woman.

'It's all about getting healthy and intimate with someone special with confidence'.

Max, a former 30-a day smoker himself, previously told DailyMail.com: 'I’ve smoked in the cold and rain, I’ve smoked through flu and I’ve had those blind panics you get when you run out of cigarettes late at night. I know what it feels like to try and stop smoking using willpower or patches and why those methods fail in 85% of cases. 

'I have developed my own unique Quit Smoking Now Advanced Hypnotherapy program to help you to quit in usually just one session using my App.

'The beauty of the app is that it gives people complete nicotine freedom from all forms of tobacco; cigarettes, roll-ups, cigars, even shisha, and all nicotine products including e-cigs, vaping, patches, pills and gums.'

Ready for bed? After a show-stopping evening, Adele shunned the traditional afterparties, admitting on the red carpet: 'I'm going back to my flat with McDonalds and a bottle of wine'

Despite seeking Kirsten's help, in 2016, Adele confessed she'd already started smoking again, after feeling that giving up the habit had a negative impact on her voice. 

She told The Hamilton Spectatator in 2016: 'The people with the best voices, they always smoke. I've given up smoking and I'm convinced that's made my voice weaker.'

In 2020 Adele was pictured with a cigarette in hand as she perched on the kerb of a London street with her close pal Laura Dockrill in a snap she shared on Instagram Stories as part of a look-back at the year.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Adele for further comment. 

As she left the BRIT Awards, Adele sipped from a plastic cup while focusing on her phone as the car drove away, following her long-awaited appearance at the ceremony.

Ahead of the evening, she was asked whether she had any plans to attend an after party, but she stated: 'I'm going back to my flat with McDonalds and a bottle of wine.'

It was a successful night for the star who took home the Best Song Award for Easy On Me, Album Of The Year for 30 and the Artist Of The Year award.

She beat hotly-tipped contender Ed Sheeran in the Artist Of The Year category - which now includes artists of all genders - after they both released long-awaited albums around the same time last year.

During her acceptance speech, Adele told the audience: 'I understand this award has changed but I love being a female artist!', as she referenced the changes the awards board had made to the ceremony.

Despite much anticipation around Adele's performance, many fans were left unimpressed, as it came just weeks after she cancelled her Las Vegas residency. 

Her appearance came as she continues to face backlash for leaving fans thousands of pounds out of pocket when she pulled the plug on her Stateside shows with just 24 hours notice. 

Several fans took to social media to react to Adele's performance at the awards show, with one writing: 'I wonder if they're showing this Adele #Brits performance in Las Vegas? Too soon?'

Another said: 'You playing Vegas now? Band seem OK on the Brits! @Adele'. 

Another fan wrote: 'So Adele can't manage her concerts in Vegas, which by the way cost the earth, but she can turn up to the Brits where she's won awards and is basically headlining the show'.  

One added: 'No hate to Adele but how can she cancel her Vegas residency and then come and perform at the Brits'. 

Adele did not address criticism over her cancelled Vegas residency during the awards show.   

Adele beat hotly-tipped contender Ed Sheeran in the Artist Of The Year category - which now includes artists of all genders - after they both released long-awaited albums around the same time last year.

The BRIT Awards sparked controversy last year after ditching the traditional male and female categories and switching to gender-neutral gongs for the first time in its history, causing naysayers to brand the event 'woke'. 

Organisers divided opinion and some were left outraged by the decision to switch to gender-neutral gongs for the first time in its history, in calls led by non-binary singer Sam Smith.

Bosses claimed the move was in a bid 'to be as inclusive and as relevant as possible' and allowed people to enter who do not identify as a man or woman.

But fans at the time blasted the change as 'woke drivel' at the time, with many calling for a boycott.

Reaction: Several fans took to social media to react to Adele's performance at the awards show, with one writing: 'I wonder if they're showing this Adele #Brits performance in Las Vegas? Too soon?'

During the evening, Adele - who arrived at the ceremony on the red carpet wearing a huge diamond ring on her engagement finger - swept the board following her return to the BRITs, where she took home gongs in all three categories that she was nominated in.

During her speech for her third award, for Best Album, Adele emotionally decidated the gong to her son Angelo and her ex-husband Simon.

Tearful Adele, said: 'Thank you, again the company I'm in really is phenomenal. Thanks to everyone I work with. But I want to dedicate this to my son. And his dad. Because it's about them. I'm really proud of myself for sticking to my guns and putting out something so personal. It's not something people do anymore.'

Also thanking her producer she said: 'Someone who was integral to this album is producer of the year Inflo. He also works with Little Simz. He helped me so much.' 

Along with Adele, there were also performances by Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Liam Gallagher, Dave, Little Simz, and this year's Rising Star award winner, Holly Humberstone. 

Adele - who has been hiding out at boyfriend Rich Paul's home in recent weeks - touched down at Heathrow on the weekend and was seen making her way into the airport's Windsor Suite. 

Rich, 40, was not seen at the airport after the sports agent found himself wrapped up into the controversy over the Vegas residency, which Adele cancelled just a day before she was supposed to begin performing last month.A source at the rehearsals told Page Six late that the singer often made sobbing calls to her boyfriend that interrupted rehearsals.

'Adele's been crying and couldn't get through a single full rehearsal for the past month,' said the source, who was connected to the Caesars Palace management team. 'Just constantly on the phone with Rich… loudly shouting and sobbing.'

They added: 'She has barely rehearsed because she is constantly in the middle of an emotional shootout.'

The two were also rumored to be experiencing a rough patch in their relationship of six months, but Adele tried to squash it on social media last week.

She confirmed that she would be performing at the BRITs, and added at the end of her post, 'Oh, and Rich sends his love.'

Amid the furore surrounding her Vegas residency, it's been claimed that Adele wants to reduce her working commitments and make her career 'more about her music' following the cancellation of her Las Vegas shows.

The Mail on Sunday reported that she plans to 'go back to basics' after a high-profile PR campaign to promote her album, 30, including two TV specials.

Insiders say this explains her decision to appear at the BRITs and on Graham Norton's chat show this Friday.

A source said: 'There have been times in the past six months when things got too big. There have been tensions within Team Adele.

'One minute she was living life away from the limelight, the next she was being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey.

'Adele loves the Brits. It's where she feels at home. She used to be interviewed by The Face magazine who really appreciated her work, then she ended up being interviewed by someone in Australia who hadn't even listened to her album.

'Underneath all of the millions of pounds is a normal girl from Tottenham who is not remotely big time.'

The 2022 BRIT Awards was truly Adele's night as she brought her complete tally of BRIT trophies to 12 since winning the first ever Rising Star award in 2008.

The songstress also became the first ever recipient of the BRITs' inaugural Artist of the Year award, with her third victory claimed with the win for Song of the Year for Easy On Me. 

The International counterparts to these new categories similarly saw two unbeatable global artists celebrated; with Billie Eilish picking up International Artist of the Year and Olivia Rodrigo presented with International Song of the Year for Good 4 U - the biggest selling international single of the year in the UK.

International Group went to Silk Sonic - the collaborative superduo consisting of US artists Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak. 

Making her BRITs debut both on stage with an electrifying two-song performance, and in this year's shortlists, Little Simz was presented with Best New Artist, beating off competition from Central Cee, Griff, Joy Crookes and Self Esteem. 

She was joined on stage by actress Emma Corrin. The Mercury Prize winning London band Wolf Alice won Best Group, the second year they had been nominated in this category.

The 2022 BRITs Rising Star shortlist saw three incredible female artists compete for the coveted prize, as chosen by critics and heads of music to identify the future stars of British music. 

Winner Holly Humberstone got to perform to her biggest audience yet with a rendition of her new single London is Lonely, and was introduced on stage by last year's Rising Star recipient, Griff.

The BRITs in 2022 saw a number of changes to awards categories in order to create even more opportunities for artists to be recognised.

The recipient of the BRITs' first ever Songwriter of the Year award tonight went to Ed Sheeran before he performed a second number, The Joker and The Queen later in the show. 

Having picked up two awards last year, Dua Lipa, was awarded with Pop/R&B Act, and having received her first ever BRIT nominations this year Becky Hill was awarded Dance Act.

Alternative/Rock Act went to Sam Fender (bringing his UK record label Polydor's tally of trophies up to 5), who later in the show went on to wow the audience with a performance of his Top Ten hit single Seventeen Going Under. 

British rap royalty Dave was presented with the award for Hip Hop/Grime/Rap Act by Arsenal legends Ian Wright and Bukayo Saka, and closed the ceremony with a triumphant performance of In The Fire, where he was joined by fellow rappers Ghetts, Giggs, Fredo, Konyikeh and Meekz.  

Presenters on the night included Courtney Cox and Johnny McDaid, Brian Cox, Vicky McClure, Jodie Whittaker, Mo Farah, Tom Daley and Ronnie Wood.
