With a line-up including Kings of Leon, Pixie Lott, Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Jason Derulo, Tinie Tempah and The Editors to name a few - not to mention amazing fashion, make-up and backstage goss, this weekend's V Festival was a style extravaganza!
The fashion was eclectic to say the least, with some wow-worthy outfits from Paloma Faith, Diana Vickers and Florence Welch. And while the Sugababes stuck to a simple black palette with statement make-up, Kate Nash wore an all-in-one print bodysuit with long black and white tassels.
Gossip Girl Taylor Momsen stormed the festival with her band The Pretty Reckless wearing a see-through corset dress and six-inch glass platform heels filled with $1 notes. The Material Girl said she was on her best behaviour and loved performing to the British crowd.
Also wowing the crowds was 19-year-old pop princess Pixie Lott who attracted plenty of attention in a short black and gold minidress with stockings and gold suspenders – hot!
Other celebs hanging out in the VIP backstage area included Drew Barrymore who was there with on-off boyfriend and co-star Justin Long, Alexa Chung sporting a retro Kurt Cobain tee with her classic denim cut-offs, plus mega-wag Coleen Rooney who went for a more boho look than usual. And giving the event a royal edge, Princess Beatrice was also backstage looking relaxed and hanging out with chums.
What a stylish way to end summer!
