Coconut cocktails and booty shaking to Beyonce can only mean one thing - Grazia Daily is spending the weekend at Virgin Media’s V Festival. As we type, we're living it up in the Louder Lounge where the likes of Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn are enjoying the, err, lovely weather and rocking their festie style with a-plomb. Here's what we're loving from V so far...
1. Beyonce's First New 'Do Performance
There is no better way to spend the weekend than watching Beyonce take to the stage, but it gets even more exciting when the superstar singer is debuting her brand new 'do. The Pob, we were relieved to find out, did no damage to her infamous hair flip. Cue high energy dance routines, various fabulous outfit changes and a 90,000 strong audience backing (and re-enacting) her every move. All hail Queen B!
2. Model Style
When Jourdan Dunn popped by for a chat, we naturally wanted to know her festival fashion essentials. 'A good beanie is a must-have, especially when it starts raining,' the Brit model told us. We also spotted Cara Delevingne rocking her trademark tomboyish baseball cap and brilliant printed leggings and hanging out with fellow beanie fan Clara Plaget. See, it's all about the headgear, people!
3. The Look Of Love
Hearts are breaking everywhere. David Gandy, it seems, is officially back with Les Miserables star Samantha Barks. After declaring himself single back in July, the stunning male model couldn’t keep away from his 22-year-old counterpart when they hit the Mahiki bar for a cocktail or two.
4. Coconut Cocktails!
Thee place to be at V Festival this year was the Mahiki Backstage Coconut Bar - try finding a celeb minus a coconut in hand! Everyone from Pixie Lott and Cara Delevingne to Zara Martin and Laura Whitmore relaxed at the tiki wonderland, sipping on delicious coconut grenade cocktails and even taking up the limbo challenge.
5. Festie Manis
There's no better time than at a festival to experiment with bold and bright beauty. Alexandra Burke was only one of many who notched up their look with colour-defying talons. Impressive!
6. Tulisa's Transformation
Just like Beyonce, Tulisa chose V Festival to ditch the hair extensions and showcase her brand new 'do. Looking sleek and sophisticated, the brunette arrived as plus one to the One Direction boys and posed up a storm with her popstar pals, including Rochelle from The Saturdays.
7. And Rita's Return
Despite being in hospital last week with a throat infection, Rita Ora left her bed to perform at V Festival for her fans. What an absolute trooper! Although there was no sign of her hanging with (ex?) bestie Cara Delevingne. Sob.
