Pop superstar Adele donned a dress created by the famous Vietnamese fashion designer Cong Tri at her concert in Los Angeles.

On the stage at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Saturday evening, Adele appeared in a gorgeous dress that Cong Tri designed only for her. The dress had many details so Adele chose a classic look with a nude makeup style and her hair tied up.

The concert is part of a series of events named "Weekends with Adele," which will take place over the weekends from November 18, 2022 to March 25, 2023.

The main material of the dress is high-end sequin with moderate stretch, attached with a stylized firework pattern made from crystals, gems and beads. Cong Tri said the most difficult part for his team was to create a design that is unlike any outfits that Adele has worn.

In September last year, Adele's team contacted Cong Tri after he released the Spring/Summer 2023 collection in Vogue magazine.

"They want us to get the essence of this collection and use it to create a special design for Adele in her show," he said. "My design was picked among giant designers like Valentino and Prada."

Cong Tri revealed that when Adele tried the dress on, she loved it and didn't think that it came from a Vietnamese designer.

He chose the firework pattern with the meaning of a strong, brilliant and successful beginning to the year. When Tri thinks about Adele, he thinks of healing music.

"Adele’s music makes me think of the enchanting moment when fireworks burst into the night sky," Tri said. "That kind of beauty only lasts for a moment and can make us feel nostalgic when enjoying it. Listening to Adele and watching fireworks suddenly makes life feels so soft and fluffy."

Adele, 34, is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, with over 100 million records sold worldwide. She was named one of the best-selling artists of the 2010s in the United States and the world, as well as the best-selling female artist of the 21st century in the United Kingdom. Adele has won 16 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and an Emmy.

Cong Tri, born in Da Nang in 1978, is a member of the Asian Fashion Association. He has created dresses for many A-list celebrities such as Beyonce, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, Rose (BLACKPINK), and Rebecca Ferguson.
