It was a blast being on The Rhode Show this morning to chat about celeb-inspired looks for this Newport Jazz Festival and Folk Festival. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE SEGMENT. First up: folk, and this weekend’s forecast couldn’t be more idyllic to set up base camp at Fort Adams and listen to the beats of great performers like Brandi Carlisle, The Low Anthem and Punch Brothers, just to name a few, and funnyman Steve Martin kicks off festivities tonight at the Tennis Hall of Fame with banjo in hand and folk tunes to entertain.
Our picks were inspired by Anne Hathaway, Pink, Nicole Ritchie, Kate Hudson and Rachel Bilson. Here’s the 411:
