Not since Kim Kardashian's gloved Givenchy gown from the 2013 Met Gala has a floral-print garment elicited so many deep thoughts. In what felt like a dizzying ayahuasca-fueled vision, Adele (Adelehuasca?) took to the Billboard Music Awards in absentia to debut the video for her latest single, "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)".
Eagle-eyed tweeters quickly pointed out that the songstress's dress (which is from Dolce & Gabbana's spring 2016 collection) very closely resembled Kim K.'s bloom-covered Givenchy:
