Adele hits back at 'Shrek dress' critics: 'It was Givenchy couture!'

Adele has slated critics who said the outfit she wore to the Grammys made her look like Princess Fiona from Shrek.

Some social media users compared the singer's dress to one 'worn' by the green-skinned ogre in the animated movies.

At a gig in Perth in Australia Adele said: "I wore this dress, right, everyone said I looked like Fiona.

"I don't f****** care. It was Givenchy couture!"

Princess Fiona is the main female character in the four Shrek films and is voiced by Cameron Diaz. A fifth movie is expected to be released by 2020.

Shrek has also made in to a musical which has played on both Broadway and in the West End. It is now touring the UK.

Adele made her remarks during her first Australian tour. Last week she tweeted a video of the stadium in Perth being prepared for the gig.

She also posted an image on Instagram of her playing with a giant water gun on stage.

Her Australia tour is due to last until mid-March with shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide still to come.

Adele's performance at the Grammys was notable for the musical tribute she paid to George Michael.

The 28-year-old won five awards on what was a record breaking night for her.
