Look out, Kate Moss — there may be a new Burberry babe on the block. The 24-year-old singer is rumoured to be collaborating with the 156-year-old British brand on a plus-sized collection, reports Vogue UK.

The voluptuous chanteuse, now pregnant with her first child, has yet to confirm or deny the rumours. Reps for the brand have yet to respond to the News' query for confirmation. Adele has been one of the few curvy ladies able to wear the brand's tartans and plaids -- in the US, sizes for apparel tend to stop at an XL or a size 14.

Head designer Christopher Bailey created looks for Adele for the 2011 Brit Awards and MTV Video Music Awards. "I've met Christopher Bailey a few times," she's reportedly said in the past. "I've always loved Burberry. I remember saving for three years to get my first bag before I got signed."

Burberry has tended to stick with British beauties of the slender variety for its advertising campaigns. Past faces and bodies for the brand have included models such as Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, Jourdan Dunn, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and the actress Emma Watson.
