V Festival Lily Allen and Katy Perry
V Festival Lady Gaga and Pixie Lott
The weekend was the sunniest so far this summer and throngs of music-lovers headed to Chelmsford and Staffordshire to catch their favourite acts at V Festival.
It was a veritable fashion fest with Katy Perry donning a typically quirky outfit of strawberry-festooned bustier top and sparkly microshorts, awash with sequins.
Lily Allen continued her love affair with wigs but this time going for a more natural black hair look rather than pink or purple. She added Ziggy Stardust-style eye make-up and wore a peek-a-boo see-through body. Lily finished her set with what's proved to be her festival performance favourite, a drum 'n' bass version of Britney Spear's Womanizer.
Pixie Lott turned out a selection of fab festival looks including a tiger print dress which she teamed with chunky flat boots and this hippy-chick look of white dress, waistcoat and floral headband.
We love Lady Gaga and her kooky ways though we've become somewhat immune to her extreme fashion which is failing to shock us anymore. The singer went for a sculpted mirror-tiled outfit and wore a long blonde wig with streaks of pink and black.
Sadly for fans, Oasis cancelled their performance saying Liam Gallagher was suffering from laringitis. Their spokesman commented "After a year of being on the road this is the first performance to be lost to a band member's illness, so naturally we are all completely gutted."
