18 Of The Best Dressed Women We Spotted At Lovebox 2019

Eni Subair

Lovebox, the annual music festival that has all the cool kids flocking to Gunnersbury Park in London, is here. The two-day event, running yesterday and today, will see thousands of people arriving in west London to drink, dance and see some incredible live music.

Who's headlining, you ask? Well, the one and only Saint Heron aka Solange (just imagine "Stay Flo" live) and the awe-worthy Chance the Rapper, as well as J Hus, Lizzo and Slow Thai.

Suffice to say we knew Lovebox would be heaving with fashion-forward women in envy-inducing fits just made for Instagram, and we weren't disappointed. Sit back and scroll through some of the best dressed women we spotted at the festival...

Stephanie, 30

What do you do?

I'm a plus-size style blogger and journalist.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I'm here with Lindex, a Swedish brand. So today I'm wearing an A-line nautical dress with some yellow accessories. It's super light and floaty. As I'm going to be dancing and walking around I need to be in fabrics that won't soak up sweat. I can get down and have fun in this.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

It's all really fluid. If I'm feeling really confident and sassy, I like to wear lots of mesh and mini skirts. Otherwise, I tend to go for a bit of tomboy aesthetic.

Who are you excited about seeing?

J Hus is a great performer and although I like 2 Chainz as more of a feature artist, I want to see what his own material is like. Plus he always brings the energy up – I love a bit of trap music.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Cardi B.

Tori, 26

What do you do?

I'm a writer and editor at Bricks magazine.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I chose this outfit because I thought it was going to be really hot, and I got this neon top near where I live. These adidas shorts are my cleaning shorts, which is what I was doing this morning.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

To be honest, I think I'm one of those people who thinks about what they want to wear and that's what I'll wear, I don't change my mind. My favourite colour is green, so that's the reason behind this fit. I like bright colours, bright nails, bright everything!

Who are you excited about seeing?

Slow Thai, 100%.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Tierra Whack. She's amazing! She's seems like she has the most upbeat personality ever and is unapologetically herself on the stage.

Esther, 26

What do you do?

I work in retail.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

Today I'd say it's a mix of streetwear but I'm trying to mix it up because I'm literally in tracksuit bottoms every day. I kept it all blue today which was easy.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Very unisex, quite boyish I'd say. I like oversized fits and block colours. Also I love paying attention to jewellery and print, I do try to change it up when I can, like with my shirt today.

Who are you excited about seeing?

Kaytranada! I love his sets. I wish I had seen his Boiler Room set, mad! The way he makes music is such a vibe.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Childish Gambino. He makes the perfect festival music, it just works.

Hannah, 19

What do you do?

I work in the film industry.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I mean neon is very on trend hence the colours and my top is a DIY job. Everything else is pretty much secondhand.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Eclectic. I like a bit of everything, high end, low end, bits from charity shops.

Who are you excited about seeing?

Loyle Carner or Kaytranada, I just saw SG Lewis and he was great.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Maybe Flume or Disclosure.

Keisha, 27

What do you do?

I work as a makeup artist in the theatre.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

Some beige trousers and black top. I'd say it's quite city chic and casual, which is what I like to usually follow.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Calm, quite minimal really.

Who are you excited about seeing?

FKJ, I love that he's a multi-instrumentalist and he's super dope as well as being really good looking.

I like Yebba, I'd definitely love to see her here.

Shola, 23

What do you do?

I'm a painter.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I went for an all white look simply because I felt like wearing something light and simple.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

I dunno, it changes every day but honestly probably an 'arty farty' vibe.

Who are you excited about seeing?

Solange of course, but also Loyle Carner and 2 Chainz. I'll be here the whole weekend so I can't wait to see Lizzo too.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Frank Ocean again.

Mary, 27

What do you do?

I work in casting.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

It's like a mesh of an old man/dad outfit. I chose it because my girlfriend said this was the winner and it's weatherproof.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Uniform. I have three things and just rotate them based on temperature and mood, but it's pretty much the same outfits always.

Who are you excited about seeing?

Solange for sure.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Smith & Mighty, because they're my favourite band at the moment and they're probably never going to play live again. I have them constantly on repeat at the moment.

Whitney, 22

What do you do?

I work in advertising.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I got a unitard from Motel Rocks in the sale and then I got matching sunnies paired with Air Max 97s. It's one of the few outfits I didn't wear during Glasto and it's quite comfy.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Quite mixed, if I'm going to a festival I tend to go all out but then on a daily basis I wear a lot of black. If I go to work in colour, they're always surprised. I mainly aim for comfort with a statement piece here or there, depending on the occasion.

Who are you excited about seeing?

J Hus, as the last time I saw him in concert was in Leeds which was quite a rowdy one and he's been in prison, so we obviously haven't had much music from him. I reckon it'll be really good to see him live again.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

This might be a stretch...but Beyoncé! The day I get to go to one of her concerts is the day I can die happy.

Esme, 22

What do you do?

I work in the creative industry.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

My outfit follows a pink theme. As a kid I loved pink, so when I recently shaved off my hair and dyed it, I decided I wanted my outfit today to be all pink and have matching makeup.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Fun, though usually a bit smarter with some skin on show. I'm staying true to this with the back detailing on this dress.

Who are you excited about seeing?

2 Chainz or Kaytranada. Choosing between the two is so difficult because they're both on at similar times.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

This might be a bit rogue, but I saw FKJ's performance today and I would have really liked if Masego was up there too. He has a really great collection of music which is quite upbeat.

What do you do?

I'm a student, about to graduate at the end of the summer and I'm also a photography assistant.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

What do you do?

I'm studying menswear at the moment and I'm also a model.

I'm channelling my inner cowboy with the leather. I love green and red together. Although it's too hot for leather, I like to stick to what I'm comfortable in.

I'm really excited to see J Hus actually and Kaytranada.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Soda, 26

What do you do?

I'm a software consultant.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I'm not going to lie, I wasn't sure I was going to be attending until this afternoon, so this was was a last-minute outfit. I bought it last summer and hadn't worn it yet.

I'd say quite fun, quirky and I like to look a little different.

Who are you excited about seeing?

Loyle Carner.

I threw on an old Palace top with a vibrant knitted skirt – I added the bows to make my outfit a little more quirky.

A Latina mix with a punky edge.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Outkast would be quite fun.

Chi, 23

What do you do?

I'm a musician.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

Actually, I was wearing something else earlier and then I went to my friend's house and saw this two-piece and thought it was sick so I had to put it on.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

I'm very much into the '90s and '00s era, although both decades are not that distant a memory for me. I took a lot of inspiration from my mum and sister growing up. My sister is eight years older than me, so she was very much of that era and I would see her Y2K aesthetic and think it was amazing.

Who are you excited about seeing?

I already saw the person I came to see, Tara Lily, she's incredible.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

I think maybe Kali Uchis or The Internet.

Tanni, 27

I'm not a huge fan of bright clothing but I thought I would try today with some neon. I added African-inspired beading to finish off my outfit.

I don't usually stick to trends, I just try to be me while being somewhat in the fashion loop.

Who are you excited about seeing?

I'm quite excited to see J Hus – I love a bit of UK grime.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Ideally, Vybz Kartel.

Jessica, 24

What do you do?

I'm a fashion assistant.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I'd describe my outfit as punk-angry teen. I'm wearing Levi's jeans and a cute leopard print top as I thought it would be the most comfortable outfit choice today.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Mainly androgynous, I'm a sucker for men's suit trousers.

Who are you excited about seeing?

J Hus, 'cause he's king in the UK music scene right now. Slow Thai will be cool as well.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

The Streets, they're so rowdy and I love it!

Ione, 25

What do you do?

I run a zine called Polyester.

What are you wearing and why did you choose it?

I got this dress in LA back in February this year. It was originally floor length but I got it taken up because I knew I wouldn't wear a super long renaissance dress ever, so it's having its first outing now it's shorter. I only ever wear heels and thought boots were safest. My best friend got me my sunnies from Poppy Lissiman.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Mad Victorian witch.

Who are you excited about seeing?

Lizzo, I think she's amazing and I love how she represents fat women. I also want to see CupcakKe as well because she was on Polyester 's last cover.

Apparently Beyoncé might be here this weekend, so that's my answer already sorted.

Rene, 22

What do you do?

I'm an artist.

I'm wearing Martine Rose's Nike Monarchs because they're comfy, a Vivienne Westwood belt and I had a matching headband but I got too hot. Essentially, I'm in all black with a cute Louis Vuitton bag because it's chic. Topped off with Ashley Williams' Ace & Tate sunnies to hide my eyes.

How would you describe your personal aesthetic?

Black, skinhead, punk.

Who are you excited about seeing?

Lizzo, Giggs and Solange. I'm excited to have a little boogie and get down and dirty with my gals.

Pick one act you'd like here next year?

Patti Smith, I've seen her twice and she's an angel. Although she's not really the Lovebox vibe, I love her. Or Rihanna because she's really sexy.
