4 gals who rock, 4 different vibes

Once upon a time, festival fashion in direct correlation to the music itself. At Woodstock, festival goers wore long, flowing tunics made to sway along to the sounds of Jimi Hendrix and The Grateful Dead.

No matter what bands, singer-songwriters, musicians, or rappers you're planning on seeing, you should add a little variety to your outfit.

Maybe just... keep scrolling instead

On Thursday, model Ireland Baldwin posted a photo of herself in just a thong with her butt exposed, posing on the balcony of her New York City hotel room. Instead of staying quiet and scrolling past it, like most family members would in this case, both her father Alec and uncle Billy Baldwin just had to post their thoughts on it.
