OK so the weather wasn't on the side of this year's Parklife fashionistas. Torrential rain and ankle-deep mud are perhaps fashion's worst enemies, with many finding themselves sporting a full head-to-toe swamp ensemble following a few tipsy tumbles.

Still, this weekend's ravers did their best to go full glam as the rain slammed. This year the crowd went boho crazy with zany prints and decorative headdresses, as a brave few went for sheer, sexy and seriously weather inappropriate get-up.
Braids and cornrows were the most popular hair accoutrements this year, plus the good-ol' denim short-shorts were wedged firmly up a few exposed underbums as usual.
And all those dirty mud splatters and sprinkles? Simply decorative accessories.
But who was this year's best dressed? Is it those boho beauties, the poncho princess, or the hotdog lady?
