What a lot of fun we had stomping through the sloshy mud of Hyde Park at the Barclaycard Wireless Festival this weekend. We saw Rihanna shaking her delectable derrière, the Made in Chelsea gang taking camouflage tips from the TOWIE crew and those gorgeous model siblings, the Cara and Poppy Delevingne, offering up festival fashion advice.

Click through the gallery above to see all of our highlights from the three day extravaganza...

1. The Wireless Women

Forget Drake, it was the lady popstrels who stole the show this weekend. Jessie J, Rita Ora, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj put on stonking performances and showed off very toned midriffs. Battle of the bellies, anyone?

2. Douglas Booth's Hair

Oh, how we swooned when we bumped into Douglas Booth. And my, how his hair has grown!

But no, the model-turned-actor told us he's wearing hair extensions for his latest role in a new film about Noah (yep, the guy with the Arc) alongside none other than THE Russell Crowe.

So has Dougers become attached to the tresses? 'My friend is in a band so I feel like a rocker, which is cool, but I won't be keeping it,' he told us.

Douglas, who was kitted out in All Saints, has just finished filming Romeo and Juliet with Hailee Steinfeld, who he describes as 'amazing'. They shot the film in Italy where 'the food is so good! But not so good for my body!'

You're looking pretty fit to us, Mr Booth.

3. Delevingne Double Act

The gorgeous twosome, Poppy and Cara Delevingne, glammed up the muddy proceedings in their All Saints clobber.

'Wear a cap!' Cara said when we asked for her festival tip. 'Mine's from New Era and it's handy for when it's raining, although then you get hat hair...' And Poppy's words of advice? 'A slick of red Chanel lipstick means you don't have to wear any other makeup,' she said. 

Speaking about festival disasters, Poppy told us: 'When I was at Glastonbury last year, one of my boots got stuck in the mud and I fell flat on my face, but I just had a few ciders and got on with it.' Oh cripes!

You wouldn't get that at Coachella, eh? 'Exactly,' she agreed. 'Kate Bosworth is my festival style icon and every year she looks so effortless at Coachella'. True dat.

Poppy and Cara were joined by older sister Chloe too so it was, in fact, a Delevingne triple whammy. 'We all travel so much so we're never in the same place,' Poppy said. 'But today is our grandmother's 100th birthday so we've been having a day of family celebrations. We ate lots of cupcakes and went through old pictures of her - it was really interesting to see where Cara gets her eyebrows from.'

Oh, to be a Delevingne...

4. From Essex To Chelsea

Meanwhile, TOWIE's Sam Faiers craftily wore a brunette wig over her blonde bob to remain undetected amid the heaving crowds. Clever girl! Although we have an inkling bronzed boyfriend Joey and his oh-so-shiny teeth maaay have given them away...

Either way, Ollie Locke was inspired. The Made In Chelsea star, who arrived with BFF Cheska Hull, told us he's decided to go incognito by keeping a box of wigs in his Union Jack jaguar - just in case he needs a disguise. Ha! We reckon that new beard will come in rather handy too, no?

Keep your eyes peeled for a bearded man in a blonde wig parading through the Chelsea streets, folks.

5. Lydia Rose Bright's Bottom

The TOWIE star, who was in the Barclaycard VIP area looking tres loved up with her new boyfriend Tom Kilbey (he’s really pretty cute), told us that she was rather worried about her choice of attire. 

Debating whether to take her long coat off she said, 'Tom doesn’t want me to get my bum out, I’ve got really short shorts on and I’m worried people will be able to see it if I take my coat off.'

If we had a bum like yours, Lyds we wouldn’t be worried about people seeing it!
