Best ever festival fashion: Kate's Glastonbury wellies

Thursday June 23, 2011

Kate Moss has been hailed top of the festival fashions after music fans voted her appearance at Glastonbury in wellies and hot pants their favourite outfit.

The supermodel, who is marrying rock star boyfriend Jamie Hince next month, famously wore a pair of Hunter wellies at the muddy festival in 2005.

She polled a quarter of the votes in the Lovebox Festival poll, putting her narrowly ahead of rock legend Jimi Hendrix.

The flamboyant guitarist got 20% of the votes for the white tasselled shirt he wore at Woodstock in 1969. 

Kate's winning look was not just fashionable - rubber footwear has proven essential in the infamous Glastonbury mud.

With torrential downpours expected to sweep across the 900-acre site until Sunday, Worthy Farm is again becoming a sticky quagmire.

As the remainder of the 170,000-plus brave, welly-clad revellers pitch their tents, they await the rain's inevitable return. 

Some campers, hauling bags and beers across the slippery grounds, were even told to pitch tents on hills after some areas flooded.

The first of the main acts take to the Pyramid Stage on Friday.

This year's event sees U2, Coldplay and Beyonce headline.
