2011 has been a year of ups and downs for 23-year-old singer Adele. Her second album '21' was released in January, hitting Number 1 spots in 24 countries, and is now the biggest selling British album of the century.

But the year took a turn for the worse when throat surgery on a benign polyp on her vocal cords threatened to end her career forever. Luckily, one successful operation and six Grammy nominations later, and she's back on top with rumours of the Holy Grail of magazine covers under her belt as well.

WWD report that US Vogue , one of (if not the ) biggest fashion magazines in the world, is rumoured to have recruited the soulful crooner for the cover of their March 2012 issue.

This will be her second Vogue cover this year, following her sultry appearance on the UK edition's October issue. But the American shoot promises to be extra-special, with designers apparently having been asked to make cover-worthy outfits especially for the full-figured singer who takes clothes in a UK 16, rather than the rather unforgiving sample size of a UK 8.

A globally successful singer on the cover of the world's most influential magazine is always a potent combination, meaning she'll most likely have the pick of every designer, from newcomer Prabal Gurung to old favourites Prada for her outfit if the rumours turn out to be true: we bet the fight has begun already.
