Good news, Adele—British Vogue has found “Someone Like You” for its October cover.

Photographed by Sølve Sundsbo, the soulful singer goes glam in a lace dress from Burberry, while Tom Ford’s new Color Cosmetics collection gives her gorgeous eyes a thickly lined, ’60s-inspired spin.

Inside, the curvaceous crooner rocks romantic curls and a selection of dresses for her accompanying fashion spread, while opening up about how she doesn’t let body hang-ups hold her back.

“I enjoy being me; I always have done,” the 23-year-old Brit tells the magazine. “I’ve seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I just don’t want that in my life.

“It’s [her size] just never been an issue–at least, I’ve never hung out with the sort of horrible people who make it an issue. I have insecurities of course, but I don’t hang out with anyone who points them out to me.”

That said, Adele insists that we shouldn’t expect to be seeing her fronting any fashion campaigns anytime soon.

“I don’t want to see me plastered everywhere,” she says. “If they offered me £10million, I’d be like f--- off. Besides if I was going to be the face of anything it should be the face of full-fat Coke.”

Watch your back, Karl Lagerfeld!
