Getting ready with the Sats at V
Thanks for reading my blog, I hope you’re enjoying it.Â Lots of fans were asking about our V Festival outfits and hair and make-up so I thought I’d tell you about my festival look.
It takes us a while to get glammed up before we go on stage â€“ probably a couple of hours in total. In terms of our outfits, we really wanted to go for something bright and colourful given that V is a summer festival. My fringed skirt was so much fun to wear â€“ it was handmade and it was inspired by a Kenzo skirt that I’d worn previously. My boots were from Dune. Our outfits were designed by our stylist and there were a few bits of high street stuff in there from Topshop and Missguided.
Our stylist Frank Strachan has an idea of what he’d like us to look like and we try out a few different combinations before deciding what to wear. He knows us well now and knows what we like and don’t like.
I felt that because we were at a festival, I could be a bit experimental so I went for something a bit different with my hair. I had one plait on the side on Saturday and then I had two plaits with a quiff in the middle yesterday. I didn’t do anything too crazy with my makeup, I kept it pretty simple and let the outfit and my hair do the talking.
When we’re performing we like to have extensions in because they give your hair lots more body and length which means it’s fun to swish around. It saves your own hair too. Nick, our hairdresser, uses a lot of heat in our hair to style it so it’s better to put that through the extensions and not sacrifice your own!
I tend to go easy on the jewellery for performances because we’re moving around a lot. I steer clear of necklaces but make up for it with some bangles and big earrings which are a lot more practical when you’re on stage.
While I was backstage and in the Louder Lounge, I wore Guess outfits on both days â€“ a playsuit on Saturday and a dress on Sunday. I teamed my playsuit with a red leather jacket from Oasis and a pair of Steve Maden boots and I wore the dress with Isabel Marant boots.
Did any of you see us at V? Hope you enjoyed the show.
