Kate Moss has been hailed top of the festival fashions after music fans voted her appearance at Glastonbury in wellies and hot pants their favourite outfit.

The supermodel, who is said to be marrying rock star boyfriend Jamie Hince next month, famously wore a pair of Hunter wellies at the muddy festival in 2005.

She polled a quarter of the votes in the Lovebox Festival poll, putting her narrowly ahead of rock legend Jimi Hendrix.

The flamboyant guitarist got 20% of the votes for the white tasselled shirt he wore at Woodstock in 1969.

Glastonbury got two more entries in the top 10 with Lady Gaga coming in third for her appearance in 2009 when she wore a bra that spat flames.

Shirley Bassey also got a mention in the poll of 1,000 music fans for the diamond-encrusted wellies which she wore at Glastonbury two years after Moss.

Rob Silver, MD of the Lovebox Festival, said festivals were "as much about fashion as they are about music".

He said: "Kate Moss proved to be very popular with voters, confirming her status as a real pioneer on the festival circuit."
