The gorgeous Adele has landed her first-ever Vogue cover—the songstress graces the October 2011 cover of the magazine's British edition. Catwalk Queen writes: "Adele has scored her own cover because she has 'won over the world with her heartbreaking voice and her ability to seem as if she very much herself,' Alexandra Shulman says. Inside the mag, Adele jokes about being the face of 'full fat Coke... I've seen people where it rules their lives, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I don't want that in my life,' the singer told Vogue. 'I have insecurities, of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me.'" [CQ]
