THE FESTIVAL EDIT: AN INTERVIEW WITH E! HOST SABRINA| June 14, 2016
It’s official, festival season is finally here and with all of our fave festivals just around the corner, we’re looking for some major field-friendly outfit inspo.
If you didn’t know already, we’ve hooked up with E! to bring all of Wireless’ Festival-goers a lounge complete with DJ booth, braid bar and t-shirt station. So, who better to catch up with to chat festival looks, beauty essentials and style icons than E! Host Sabrina. Here’s what she had to say…
Tell us about yourself…
I’m Sabrina Chakici, the Host of E! UK & Ireland. Working for E! is my dream and I am totally obsessed with my job! When I’m not presenting I write a Travel & Style blog at clutchandcarryon.com.
What is Missguided about to you?
Missguided to me is a super sassy and empowering brand.
What’s your favourite item from the festival looks and why?
I love the crochet dress worn over a bikini, with chunky boots – It’s funky with a feminine twist. Perfectly on trend and great for all weather conditions as you can easily add a cool jacket on top.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
I’m in love with Sigala right now, I play him on all my radio shows lately. Zara Larson is rocking it too!
What’s your song to get you ready for a festival?
Calvin Harris & Ri Ri – ‘This is what you came for’
What’s your favourite thing about festivals?
Everyone makes such an effort, I love the make-up & fashion but I also love that strangers come together and enjoy the same music, we all become best friends for the day 😉
What one thing you can’t live without at a festival?
A Toilet Roll – asides from the obvious it comes in handy as blotting paper 😉
Who’s the best person you have seen perform at a festival?
David Guetta always smashes it, the crowd goes insane! His sets are so fun and vibrant, usually a little bit mental and always with a great cameo.
Any beauty tips for festival make-up?
Go bold with your lip colour. Eye make-up may not always last the day 😉 A bold lip makes a fun statement and can be topped up easily.
What’s your favourite festival moment?
When the sun starts to set on the stage and the party continues through the night.
Who’s your festival style icon?
What’s the funniest moment you’ve had at a festival?
Being on the toilet and someone moving the entire cabin!
What are you looking forward to doing at the E! and Missguided Lounge at Wireless this year?
I’m looking forward to getting the backstage scoop from the artists, celeb spotting and style stalking! I’m also looking forward to putting together some fab Missguided festival looks of my own.
What do you think the biggest festival fashion trend is?
On the fashion front – crochet will be huge, I also think (much to my dismay) we’ll be seeing a lot of sliders on feet!
Beauty wise – lots of 3D braids, funky false lashes and purple lipstick.
