GRAMMYS 2012: Adele debuts a new blonde look on the red carpet

Blonde ambition: Adele debuts a new platinum look at the Grammys

Nominated for six awards, Adele was always going to be the centre of attention at the Grammy Awards.

But the Someone Like You singer ensured that all eyes – and cameras – were on her by debuting a stunning new look on the red carpet.

The 23-year-old has dyed her hair blonde, transforming her famous fiery bouffant into a sleek platinum 'do.

Adele's shoulder-length hair was styled into glamorous, classic curls, set off by a thick frame of eyelashes and slick of bright red lipstick.

Despite slamming Karl Lagerfeld's comments about her weight last week, the singer was showcasing a noticeably slimmer figure in her sequinned black gown that was cinched at the waist to skim her figure.

Adele lapped up the attention on the red carpet, as she went into the awards with second highest number of nominations.

She is second only to
rapper Kanye West with seven nods, but West was shut out of the top
categories paving the way for Adele to be the night's big winner – or
surprise loser if she fails to overcome stiff competition.

In the category of best album, Adele
with 21 faces rockers Foo Fighters for their hit Wasting Light Lady
Gaga with Born This Way Bruno Mars and his Doo-Wops &
Hooligans and pop star Rihanna with Loud.

Adele also figures prominently among
nominees for record of the year where “Rolling in the Deep” squares off
against rockers Bon Iver and “Holocene,” Bruno Mars for “Grenade,”
Mumford & Sons with “The Cave,” and Katy Perry for “Firework.”

She will perform in front of a live audience for the
first time since vocal cord surgery late last year, and fans will want
to hear if her voice is back to its sultry, soulful best.

Live from the Grammys red carpet at 11pm (GMT)
