Style Spy: Glastonbury 2010

Ever since Kate Moss strode through 2004’s Glastonbury Festival in a pair of mud-slicked leather boots, fashionistas everywhere have looked forward to the annual music festival as much for its music as its lineup of stylish starlets.


Ever since Kate Moss strode through 2004’s Glastonbury Festival in a pair of mud-slicked leather boots, fashionistas everywhere have looked forward to the annual music festival as much for its music as its lineup of stylish starlets. Here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we are no different. While we couldn’t personally attend last week’s 2010 Glastonbury Festival – thereby missing crowd-pleasers like Stevie Wonder, Gorillaz and Snoop Dogg – we managed to quell our disappointment, safe in the knowledge that plenty of our favorite festival muses were in attendance!

While ultra-short shorts were clearly the festival item du jour, each of these eight stylish ladies managed to give the look their own unique spin. Whether you prefer Alexa Chung’s classic-meets-modern ensemble or Kate Hudson’s bohemian-luxe aesthetic, we are sure you’ll find plenty of festival fashion inspiration in today’s story. With that, we present our latest edition of Style Spy: an in-depth look at Glastonbury 2010’s fashionable lineup.

Alexa Chung

Gorgeous TV presenter Alexa Chung shined in a unique mix of modern pieces (denim cut-offs and a leopard bucket bag) and classic staples (a button-up shirt and ballet flats). For a similarly stylish look, we like Siwy’s Camilla Cut Off Denim Shorts ($158) paired with either Elizabeth & James’s Schoolboy Shirt II ($225) or Rag & Bone/JEAN’s The Tomboy Shirt ($185). Accessorize with Alexander Wang’s Diego Bucket Bag ($950) and Vivienne Westwood Anglomania For Melissa’s Three Strap Flat Shoe ($126.82).

Corinne Bailey Rae

Soulful singer Corinne Bailey Rae kept it low-key for her turn on the stage, opting for a loose chambray romper and no-nonsense sneakers. The result? A subtly stylish ensemble that is perfect for a long day in the sun. If you love Corinne’s look, both Gap’s Chambray Romper ($59.50) and Free People’s Chambray Romper ($69.95) are chic alternatives, especially when paired with J Crew’s Tretorn Canvas T56 Sneakers ($68).

Emma Watson

Sweetly stylish actress Emma Watson gave fans a master class in high/low fashion by mixing a fresh-off-the-runway Louis Vuitton bustier with cuffed denim shorts and rainboots. While Emma’s LV bustier is not yet available to mere mortals, you can put together a similarly stylish look with Plenty By Tracy Reese’s Bustier ($145) or L.A.M.B.’s Plaid Bustier ($82.50). Add a pair of Hudson’s Cuffed Denim Shorts ($150) and Unionbay’s Splash Knee-High Boot ($54.95).

Jameela Jamil

Quirky-cool TV presenter Jameela Jamil was a breath of fresh air in this hip mash-up of pieces. While her utilitarian vest and wedge booties had a tough side, it was toned down thanks to the lace shorts and lemon yellow scarf. If you love Jameela’s look, pair Kill City’s Army Vest ($98) with David Lerner’s Lace Front Shorts ($88). Finish off your look with Addison’s Wedge Ankle Boots ($160) and a fab printed scarf – we like Madewell’s Shattered Glass Printed Scarf ($52).

Kate Hudson

Hippie-luxe actress Kate Hudson opted for a near-perfect rendition of what we imagine Penny Lane would wear in 2010: a sheer blouse, a loose military-green tee and Isabel Marant ankle boots. To take a page out of Kate’s book, try pairing your favorite denim cut-offs with Aude’s Flores Short Sleeve Pocket Tee ($68) and either Haute Hippie’s Reversible Silk Chiffon Blouse ($146.90) or Erin Fetherston’s Peignoir Blouse ($507.50). Complete the look with a pair of Joie’s Elvis Suede Booties ($206.50).

Kate Moss

As the undeniable pioneer of Glastonbury’s fashion scene, Kate Moss did what she does best: the unexpected. Instead of jumpstarting next year’s festival trends, Kate instead opted for a low-key ensemble that stayed true to her rocker-chic aesthetic. To get this look, layer an army jacket over a black tee and denim cut-offs; we like Blu Moon’s Vintage Army Jacket ($155) and Topshop’s Washed Army Jacket ($125). Finish off your ensemble with Jeffrey Campbell’s Brit Wrap Strap Booties ($230) and Urban Outfitters’s Basic Fishnet Tights ($7.99).

Pixie Geldof

Nonchalantly cool British ‘it’ girl Pixie Geldof was a breath of fresh air thanks to her all-black body-hugging ensemble and devil-may-care attitude. For a similarly happy-go-lucky ensemble, we recommend pairing Alice + Olivia’s Cropped Dolman Tee ($88) and Rebecca Minkoff’s Susan Jacket ($395) with Current/Elliott’s The Patsie Hot Pants ($178). Complete the look with a pair of B.ella Luisa’s Knee High Socks ($12.50) and a dash of Topshop’s Lips In Rio Rio ($16).

Sienna Miller

Boho-babe actress Sienna Miller stood out from the pack thanks to her vintage crochet vest and ethnic-inspired tote bag – both pieces dressed up an otherwise unfussy look. If you love Sienna’s take on festival fashion, you can’t go past ModCloth’s Crochet Vest ($34.99) and Simone’s Camille Carry All Bag ($2,000). Add to your bohemian ensemble with Steve Madden’s Saree Boots ($149.95) and Fred Flare’s Panama Fedora ($24.99).

    I love festival style. I think Emma Watson looked amazing in the Louis Vitton Corset.
