The T4 trend setter shares her Summer Of Love style secrets
Which festivals are you going to this year?
So far I’ve been to the Isle Of Wight festival, Hard Rock Calling, Wireless, Lovebox, Secret Garden Party, and T4 On The Beach, and I’m going to V Festival too. I’m trying to pack as much festival action in as possible before I get too old for a Portaloo!
Which artist would you most like to see at a festival?
Beyoncé, and I bloody missed her at Glastonbury, and T In The Park, and Oxegen! I’m furious. But I have seen Stevie Wonder live, so i shan’t complain too much…
What is your funniest festival memory?
It wasn’t at all funny at the time, but looking back, I got trapped in a Portaloo for an hour once. The door got stuck, and The Prodigy were playing so nobody could hear me screaming! Never ever piss during The Prodigy! I’m scarred for life!
What are your festival essentials?
Ray-Bans, baby wipes, I always keep a bottle of Glaceau Vitaminwater in my bag. It tastes great and keeps me hydrated. Other things are definitely loo roll and money for chips.
What are your favourite festivals tunes?
I think the Kings Of Leon always get me in the festival mood. The Bucket is my summer song. That and I’m yours by Jason Mraz.
Do you have any pre-festival rituals?
Raiding my wardrobes for clothes we can never get away with in london to our summer soundtracks! Bring on the animal hats, feather headdresses and more make-up than Jodie Harsh… Why not?
hich beauty products do you have to keep to hand?
What are your top festival outfits?
I keep it traditional and comfortable, vintage mens leather boots, pretty dress and a statement hat, and the quirkier the jewellery, the better…
Do you have any styling tips for festival fans?
A good hat will save you at a festival. It protects you from the sun, the rain and the flying bottles of wee that get chucked into the crowd, and lets you maintain some sort of dignity by keeping you looking somewhat chic…
What’s the best thing you’ve ever found at a festival?
A rotisserie. I’m so bloody sick of the amount of cous cous stands at festivals these days! Bring on the chicken!
How would you describe your style?
Comfortable retro glamour. Life’s too short for the natural look!
What are your key pieces to wear this summer?
What is the biggest festival no-no?
All-in-ones. I learned the hard way: playsuit + Portaloo = disaster….
Who’s your summer style icon? I think Florence Welch looks awesome always, and model Erin Wasson defines summer chic.
Name three of your essential summer tunes?
Cee Lo Green’s It OK, Katy B’s On A Mission and Three Little Birds by Bob Marley.
