Tricol-Ora

Having spent some time poring over pics of the celebs at this year’s Glastofest I have discovered the following… Festival dressing is mainly predictable, relatively dark in colour & predominantly practical (except Kate Moss in her 4 inch boots, obvs). I have also concluded that this year the printed bomber vied for supremacy with the ubiquitous Barbour jacket, & that you can never have too many Hunter wellies in one field.

Oh, and my final conclusion is that Rita Ora totally topped the style stakes at Glasto 2013, as the above trio of outfits kindly demonstrates. Rocking head-to-toe lilac with a crop top; a super-chic calf length dress with cat-eye sunnies; & a crazy fringed scarlet stage number, the London gal covers the key trends in one glorious street-meets-glam mix. Fabulous!

Back to black

This week’s famous Serpentine Gallery party was a total blackout, with supers Kate, Naomi and Eva all selecting the sombre hue. A far cry from the pretty printed tea-dresses usually associated with a summer party, the catwalk queens instead opted for the flattering seduction of black.

Perhaps the recent spate of bad weather inspired their choices. Or maybe they were channelling a darker, more autumnal mood. Whilst I can’t deny they look divine perhaps a shot of bold colour would have worked better in June – a crisp cobalt or a zesty tangerine. After all, winter is a whole season away. Well, a month at least.
