Worshipped bustle and colour (6)


I believe the answer is:


'worshipped' is the definition.

'bustle and colour' is the wordplay.
'bustle' becomes 'ado' (synonyms).
'and' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'colour' becomes 'red' (red is a kind of colour).

(Other definitions for adored that I've seen before include "Idolised" , "Cherished" , "Worshipped and revered" , "Worshipped and venerated" , "Loved enormously" .)

I've seen this clue in The Globe and Mail and The Telegraph.
