Perhaps one of the best things about Adele's first Vogue cover is that it came out the very weekend she totally owned all of the awards at the Grammys. And the accompanying spread is beautiful—not to mention that her cat-eye makeup in the portrait shots is impeccable.
However, The Cut point outs that the article—all 5,974 words of it—doesn't mention her weight once. It's been discussed ad nauseam pretty much everywhere else, and Vogue has never been shy about dissecting it's cover model's anatomy, so who knows why it was left out—Because talking about it is getting old? Because who cares? We're not taking any sides, but we would have been interested to see what the rest of those jeans look like.
