Adele has shocked her fans by flaunting an incredible transformation in new Christmas party photos the singer shared online.

The star is near unrecognisable as she shows off her slimmed-down figure in a satin black gown and has her blonde hair in bouncy curls, cutting a glamorous figure alongside the Grinch and Santa Clause.

“We both tried to ruin Christmas but then both our hearts grew! Thank you for coming to my party and making us feel like kids Grinch. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone,” she captioned the two black and white snaps.

Her fans were so taken by her transformation they left comments of ‘beautiful’ and ‘stunning’ on the images. While some also took to Twitter to share them, even admitting they had initially confused her with with American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson.

“Is it you Adele or woah?” was one comment.

Fans praised the star after she debuted her new look at rapper Drake’s birthday party in October, and now topping off the year with more incredible photos.

Adele claims reformer pilates is to thank for her weight loss

Apparently, Adele has a “new lease of life” since starting reformer pilates with her friend, Ayda Field.

In the words of Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde, “exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy” and Adele has certainly looked happy again, after the heartache of her split from her husband back in April.

If you haven’t come across reformer pilates before, it’s pilates 2.0 and involves a bed-like machine to increase the resistance of the workout.

“Adele has been out enjoying herself and she sees that as her priority at the moment, along with being a mum to Angelo,” a source told The Sun.

“It’s a bonus that she has shifted some weight. Her mates are glad she’s letting loose and there’s nothing but good feelings towards her. She’s got a new lease of life.”
