Bonnaroo took Tennessee this past weekend, and forecasts of rompers, bandeaux, maxi dresses, and crop tops (as well as of 90-degree temperatures) were all amply fulfilled. On stage, Florence Welch looked chic in flowing, sheer black, as did Karen Elson in a peach-colored frock. On the dusty fields, the festivalgoers kept cool in bright tanks and boyfriend jeans, oversized striped sunhats, shades of all shapes, and cowboy boots (it was Tennessee, after all). Style.com rounded up the best of the fest; check out the full lineup here.
It’s “Cosmic Love” between Gucci’s Frida Giannini and Florence Welch. After meeting the ginger songstress at the Grammys this year, the designer says she was so struck by Welch’s presence that she inspired Gucci’s Fall ’11 collection. Why? She’s got the “self-assured look that goes hand in hand with the Gucci woman,” Giannini says. [Vogue U.K.]
Daphne Guinness—shy? The heiress, who got dressed for this year’s Met gala in the windows of Barneys, admits, “Maybe this is my way of getting more comfortable with people. I gravitated towards people who are as shy as I was. We sort of huddled together, like on a raft.” Learn more about Guinness in “Daphne’s Window,” a new short film by Brennan Stasiewicz. [Nowness]
Style.com revealed what Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld planned to give Carine for Mother’s Day this year, but here is a look at one of his creative gifts from his younger years. In this image, the first to be released from the Rizzoli pictorial biography on the former Paris Vogue editor due out in October, depicts Roitfeld wearing a shirt Vladimir made for her on Mother’s Day when he was eight years old.

And today in tipples: The world’s most expensive bottle of Champagne was purchased at an auction for $41,000. “Vintage,” in this case, barely covers it: The bottle of Veuve Clicquot has been chilling since the 1840′s beneath the Baltic Sea. [ELLE]
Hedi Slimane takes a break from shooting young punks and skaters to serve up a tantalizing new group of shots on his Fashion Diary: a series of pictures from Yves Saint Laurent’s farewell-to-fashion show in 2002 (above). [Hedi Slimane]
Despite rumors of a big change at Harper’s Bazaar, there’s been no motion on that front yet. But at another storied publication, The New York Times, a big change will be announced today: Jill Abramson will be named the paper’s executive editor, the first woman to hold the post in its entire history.

Marni for less? Seems too good to be true—but it’s exactly what you’ll get when Consuelo Castiglioni debuts a lower-priced collection, called Foulard, this June. [Harper’s Bazaar via Racked]
Crime may not pay, but beauty sure does. Gisele Bündchen, the world’s most successful model, is apparently well on her way to billionaire-dom. As if we needed another reason to envy her. [Vogue U.K.]
And today on Nowness, Florence Welch debuts a new video—a tribute to her longtime musical idol and admitted crush, Buddy Holly. [Nowness]
Five Models For The Price Of One, Posh And Florence On The Rich List, Designers And Their Moms, And More…
i-D‘s latest issue is dedicated to “summer hedonism.” And what could be more hedonistic than five cover stars in place of the usual one—especially when they’re Stella Tennant, Amber Valletta, Daphne Groeneveld, Behati Prinsloo, and Kristen McMenamy? [Models.com]
Some models model (see above); the rest, it seems, collaborate on designs. The latest two to try their hands are Karen Elson and Kate Moss ex and occasional poster boy (for both designers and drug awareness) Pete Doherty. Elson is singing a new tune as an accessories designer for Nine West; her limited-edition collection hits stores in late August. And Doherty will create a limited-edition mini-collection of clothing for French label The Kooples in stores from October. [WWD]
For Mother’s Day, designers remembered their fondest style memories about Mom. In some cases, that meant her dressing them: Tory Burch recalled her mom helping her pick out a YSL black tulle and pink sequin prom dress—”a little daring for prom,” she says. But a few precocious kids started dressing their mothers, instead. Rachel Roy and Isaac Mizrahi were both outfitting mama from a young age. [NYT]
It pays to be Posh (and be married to David Beckham). The designer and her husband are the 19th wealthiest couple on the Rich List 2011 from London’s Sunday Times. Florence Welch (left) joins them on the list in the under-30s division. Her dog days are definitely over. [Vogue U.K.]
Stella McCartney rolled out her own children’s line this Fall after testing the waters with a Gap collab, and she shows no sign of slowing down. After the success of the first season, the mother of four is launching a full Stella McCartney Kids collection for Spring. The label is promoting the line with a series of typically adorable campaign images featuring a group of ultra-photogenic tots. We couldn’t help but notice that one in particular (right) seemed to be channeling a certain flame-haired, makeup-happy Brit chanteuse (left). Guess you’re never too young to want your MTV.
