There are two stars in Adele’s new “Send My Love (to Your New Lover)” video, which debuted at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night: Adele (obviously) and an ethereal Dolce & Gabbana dress. The singer moves effortlessly in the floral gown, dancing a million different ways in the hologram-inspired, kaleidoscopic montage.

Her longtime stylist Gaelle Paul told Billboard they chose the Dolce & Gabbana dress from two racks of mostly sequined, futuristic clothing: “At the time, I was like, ‘We could go to the Met Ball with this — it being a sci-fi theme this year and all!’” But this colorful gown was best for director Patrick Daughters’s black backdrop. “The dress needed ‘to flow,’” Paul explains. It really does.
