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.
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).
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).
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).
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).
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).
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).
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).
