Let's take a lesson in festival fashion dressing from two of Ireland's top models.

Thalia Heffernan and Alannah Beirne were among the stylish set partying at Royal Hospital Kilmainham on Saturday and Sunday and there wasn't a denim hotpant or bralet in sight.

The Dancing With The Stars contestant and Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model finalist each added their own twist to the classic festival uniform: how to make an outfit you spent hours putting together look like something you just happened to throw on and look fabulous in.

Alannah opted for high-waisted capri jeans, a rocker tee and leopard print kimono and ankle boots as she enjoyed the view from the Bulmers Live 100% Irish stage.

Thalia turned heads in a floral flared two piece and embroidered denim jacket, her trademark natural curls in full flow.

For the second day of festivities, Alannah injected some colour with a pair of tropical print flared trousers and an asymmetric white crop top and metallic crossover body bag.

Now that festival season has officially kicked off, we'd like to see more of this covered-up cool.
