With 17 people confirmed dead and countless more missing and injured, the people have London have begun rallying around victims of this week’s Grenfell Tower fire to offer support, and none more so than its celebrities.
Within hours of the blaze starting, Jamie Oliver, Lily Allen and Stella McCartney had all offered support, while pop superstar Adele and her husband Simon Konecki comforted mourners at a late-night vigil.
Wearing what appeared to be an abaya (a long dress-like robe worn by Muslim women), a number of people at the vigil posted photos of the singer to social media, with one social media telling reporters, "she's a beautiful soul and just wanted to see if everyone was alright."
While there, Adele was seen quietly comforting victims with hugs and tears. She actively avoided media attention, opting to set out helping behind the scenes wherever possible.
Prior to Adele's visit, singer and Kensington local Lily Allen wrote, "If anyone need a bed or a lift, or tea tweet me," later offering up food and emergency supplies.
"To any of the 100's of FAMILIES effected by this terrible fire at Grenfell Tower Notting hill today, You are all welcome to come hang out in my restaurant and be fed and watered by my Jamies Italian team," Jamie Oliver wrote alongside an Instagram image, adding, "Food and drink free of charge...our thoughts, love and prayers are with you all."
