The New Face Of Very's Festival Collection Lilah Parsons Talks Glastonbury And Cressida Bonas

24 June 2014 by

Model turned MTV presenter Lilah Parsons has been revealed as the face of Very's new festival collection. The 25-year-old, who's walked the runway for Vivienne Westwood and Chanel before, has appeared in a series of snaps for the brand flaunting their range of '60s boho pieces. 

It's the perfect gig for Lilah, a full-on festival fanatic who's heading to Glastonbury later this week. We caught up with her to chat festival style and beauty, music memories and Glasto.

Grazia Daily: Which events are you excited for this summer?
Lilah Parsons: I'm off to Glasto this week and I can't blooming wait! It's actually my first time so I'm ridiculously excited. I'm Looking forward to seeing Nick Mulvey again - I'm a big fan. Also Bombay Bicycle Club, Haim, James Blake, Anna Calvi.. So many!

Grazia Daily: What's your best festival memory?
Lilah Parsons: Sharing a tent with one of my best mates Pips. It took us about three hours to put it up and then we woke up soaking wet from the rain the next day – some cheap tents aren’t waterproof apparently! But we had the best time, I loved it.

Grazia Daily: What will you be wearing this festival season?
Lilah Parsons: I'll be living in my converse, a leather jacket, crop tops and long floaty skirts and cute slip dresses. Oh, and probably my denim boyfriend jeans if it gets cold and a hoody.

Grazia Daily: What do you think makes the perfect festival outfit?
Lilah Parsons: I think it's all about keeping it cool, casual and playful. You want to have fun with it but also feel relaxed and free to really get stuck in - it's a festival not a fashion show!

Grazia Daily: Who are your festival style icons and why?
Lilah Parsons: I loved Cressida Bonas in her dungarees and mirrored sunnies at last year’s Glasto. Jourdan Dunn also always looks very chilled but amazing - although to be fair she could make a bin bag look hot.


Grazia Daily: What should you never wear at a festival?
Lilah Parsons: Heels! Unless it's a chunky boot and they're only small - anything else is a total no! I saw WAY too many girls arse cheeks hanging out of their hot pants last summer. That is definitely a festival fashion mistake, or just a life mistake in general!

Grazia Daily: Got any festival beauty tips?
Lilah Parsons: If your hair’s feeling a bit rough, just shove it up in a scrunchie - I bloody love a scrunchie! If you're feeling really pasty get a spray tan before you go. You'll feel way more relaxed about getting your legs out and keeping your makeup minimal if you've got a nice glow to your skin.

Grazia Daily: 3 festival essentials? 
Lilah Parsons: A disposable camera - so many good memories for when you finally get it developed - I got mine from last summer developed about 6 months later! A rucksack to chuck everything in while you're out and about and some kind of booster phone charger thing.

Grazia Daily: And finally.. what's the one thing you always forget to pack?
Lilah Parsons: Socks! And something to wear to sleep in!
