Good morning y’all! Hands up: who went to bed a) singing ‘Who Run This World? Girls!’ b) dreamt they were a Beyoncé back up dancer and c) woke up convinced they miraculously grew what Caitlin Moran called on Twitter “mighty arsenal of sex-thighs” Beyoncé-stylee? We’re not the only ones that tick all three, then?
So, the new Queen Bee rocked the Glastonbury – or Glastonberry as it should now be known as - stage as the first woman to ever headline the festival (don’t get us started) and looked sensationally a-ma-zing in her big still-visible-from-Glasto’s-periphery gold hair, gold sequin belted Balmain-esque jacket/dress/who-cares-it’s-Beyoncé and black (although our eyes were so razzle-dazzled they shined gold too) hotpants/corset/who-cares-it’s-Beyoncé. So much so we almost left the house in a similar getup, following India Knight’s suggestion on Twitter that “we should all wear big pants and a jacket to work tomorrow as a tribute.”
In fact, the effect of B’s performance last night was so immense we almost did not blink upon hearing the news that Kate Moss was apparently refused entry to the backstage area to see Pulp’s surprise appearance at the festival! Almost but we did blink in direct contrast to the bouncer who remained unfazed by Mossy’s smiley face and VIP pass. We’re not sure whether Kate went down the whole ‘don’t you know who I am?’ route but she did seem to be having a good time sloshing through the muddy field arm-in-arm with the very dapper Hamish Bowles, US Vogue’s European editor-at-large, and having a right giggle when fiancé Jamie Hince got stuck in the mud so we’re pretty sure Mossy’s mood remains high ahead of her wedding.
And now back to Beyoncé and how amaaaazing she was last night...just watch!
