Gemma Cairney clearly packed the A/W trends into her festival suitcase last weekend

At the beginning of the festival period, we brought you the LBD in all its summery glory on Ms. Pixie Lott in the form of a lacey, micro mini but as Autumn approaches and the festival season comes to a close (boo!) the LBD is shifting shapes. Stylist-turned-radio presenter, Gemma Cairney, best known for hosting BBC Radio 1Xtra, embodies the seasonal LBD at V Festival last weekend, where big names, including Eminem and Rihanna, were the soundtrack to the goings on, with this adorable number. The tailored lapels and curly quiff create add a touch of masculinity, while the loose skirt and knee-length socks keep femininity in check, allowing for that all-important flexibility when bouncing around in the crowd. Gemma has dressed celebs such as Florence Walsh who is renowned for her floaty, Kate Bush inspired LBDs that have been resurrected in the D&G A/W '11 collection and adored by starlets including Olivia Wilde and Laura Haddock. As well as this enviable addition to her CV, Gemma has also presented alongside pillars of the fashion community - Alexa Chung and acclaimed designer, Henry Holland. Ms. Cairney clearly knows her style stuff and this festival-savvy ensemble only reinforces our suspicions. Gemma's gorgeous get up is yet another interpretation of the LBD for those of you who can't bear to leave your beloved staple behind when swapping the life of luxury for a muddy field. The zip front fasten adds a quirky embellishment that will ensure you don't drown in the sea of style; after all, the relevance of the music over fashion spotting is becoming more and more questionable every year. We're also loving Gemma's pop of colour with her maroon Brothel Creeper pumps and vivid lipstick. Colour-blocking is set to take the industry by storm this season and the red shoe and lip combo is steaming ahead with Naya Rivera, Rose McGowan and Christina Ricci rocking the look. Cast your eye over our festival favourites for the perfect look for Leeds Fest which is coming up this weekend and have a browse through our collection of vibrant accessories to colour pop your outfit like Gemma.
