Size 16 cover girl: Adele set to grace the front of US Vogue”s esteemed Spring issue
Curvaceous singer Adele is in line to hit the fashion jackpot if rumours she is to appear on the cover of US Vogue are true.
Having already graced the cover of the British edition in September, WWD report the soulful star will hit American newsstands for the coveted March 2012 issue.
Second only to the famed September issue, the Spring edition is the most important in the Vogue calender and featuring a fuller-figured star marks a courageous move by the fashion magazine.
Cover girl: Adele has already appeared on Vogue”s UK edition
The last time a plus-sized star graced the cover of US Vogue was Jennifer Hudson back in 2007.
Editor Anna Wintour is said to have asked a host of designers to come up with a series of cover-worthy outfits for the size 16 chart-topper to wear on the shoot.

Although we do hope Adele will get to show them off on the cover as her appearance on the UK edition was closely cropped to just her head and shoulders.
With six Grammy nominations and the best-selling album of 2011, 21, under her belt the talented 23-year-old also seems to be carving out a career as a style icon too.
The signing by the American magazine is the latest in an ever-increasing list of cover shoots for Adele who has also featured on the front of Cosmopolitan and The Gentlewoman, proving that the more voluptuous figure sells as well as the usual stick-thin models and celebrities.
According to reports Taylor Swift was in line to fill the esteemed fashion spot but has been moved to the February issue instead.
Another surprising star to feature on the January cover of US Vogue was Meryl Streep, who at 62 is the oldest person to grace the cover in the magazine”s history.
