Millie Mackintosh

Poppy Delevingne

Poppy Delevingne gave her ensemble a Midsummer Eve’s edge back in 2014 for the perfect finishing touch to her festival outfit of choice. Teamed with loose beachy waves to provide a pretty contrast to her leather jacket, it acted as the spot-on pop of summertime colour.

Festival Essentials: We love this vibrant Elastic Flower Garland from Topshop , £8.

The face of beautiful natural afro hair, Solange’s beauty look as she took centre stage at Coachella 2014 stood out in our minds as one of our favourites yet. Paired with a striking coral lipstick that perfectly suited her skin tone, she’s fast becoming one of our ultimate festival muses.

Festival Essentials: Follow top stylist Johnnie Sapong’s top hair tip of filling a water spray bottle, adding a small amount of conditioner to it and spritzing it onto mid-lengths and ends whenever you need a hydration boost. Our conditioner of choice? Bumble and bumble Crème de Coco Conditioner , from £6.50.

Alessandra Ambrosio take two...

Making a second appearance in our summer festival hot list, suffice to say Alessandra can do no wrong in our books. This time round, our focus is on her stylish headscarf - the perfect accessory for keeping cool in the heat. It's clearly giving her ice lolly a run for its money in this picture.

Vanessa Hudgens

Bringing a bit of Bollywood beauty  to the proceedings, East met West when Vanessa Hudgens hit the festival scene last year. Teaming sparkling bindis with dramatic Henna and smokey eye makeup, it’s one trend we’re hoping continues for many more Coachellas to come.

Jourdan Dunn

With healthy, glowing skin and a silver and blue hair colour switch up that was the ideal dose of fun for festival season, Jourdan Dunn embodied the spirit of summer perfectly. A look reserved for the more beauty brave, reach for a more temporary measure in place of the bottle if you'd prefer to play the field ...

Festival Essentials: Our pick of the temporary hair colour fixes is the Kevin Murphy Color Bug collection , £14. Highly pigmented, non-flaky and non-tacky, they provide the perfect excuse to change up your hair colour, without the commitment.
