Forget the 'rough 'n' ready' approach to the festival season, top Irish models Rosanna Davison and Roz Purcell looked picture perfect as they led the style stakes at Longitude festival in Dublin's Marlay Park yesterday afternoon.

The healthy eating gurus hit the park to see the likes of The Coronas and A$AP Ferg rock the stage last night as 30,000 fans flocked to the South Dublin festival to kick back at the three-day event.

Speaking in the sporadic sunshine in Rathfarnham yesterday afternoon, Rosanna said she has been on incredible camping trips around Ireland but sleeping over at a festival is still on the 'to do' list.

Wearing mirrored shades, a bottle green fringe skirt and fitted black top, the former Miss World was relaxing after putting the finishing touches to her new book Eat Yourself Fit. It will launch as Rosanna takes her beauty, food and fitness workshops across the country in autumn.

"I'd love to get a break away in August but, apart from that, I'll be full-on busy up until Christmas, which is just the way I like it," the qualified nutritionist said.

The quirkier events at Longitude included a roller-skating disco, where guests were invited to don a pair of skates and zip around while chowing down on handmade doughnuts.

Meanwhile, in a notable change in festival grub, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free hot dogs dominated the traditional feed of burgers and greasy fast food as a new generation of health-conscious revellers hit the food stalls.

Rozanna Purcell was at the Mooch Frozen Yoghurt bar dishing out her treats and says she has noticed a "huge difference" in tastes: "From bullet-proof coffees to protein balls, it's definitely catering for a shift in healthy lifstyle."

Busy filming Taste of Success, she is looking forward to holidaying in Asia this Christmas: "I'll definitely have to sneak in another trip before then though."

She said she was looking forward to seeing Annie Mac and Major Lazer, but was thankful she didn't have to camp out under the stars: "The great thing about Irish festivals is that I can sleep in my own bed each night."
