V Festival 2012: Behind the scenes with omg!

The omg! team are still wearing dark glasses in the office and being tiptoed around following a truly awesome V Festival 2012 weekend.

Here's what REALLY happened when #TeamOMG headed to Hylands Park and the Virgin Media Louder Lounge...

The moment that made us V Festival ready

Getting prepped for a festival is almost as hard work as jumping around in the mosh pit to DJ Fresh and this year was no different.

Ellie had her hair blow-dryed by expert John Vial at Fudge - he put loads of hair mousse through her tresses to smooth out and de-frizz it but also gave it plenty of volume.

Becs had barely been in the exclusive Virgin Media Louder Lounge for two minutes before she visited the Unite salon to have her hair piled on top of her head celeb-style - with temperatures reaching 30C, it was the perfect way to keep her cool and frizz free (and glam of course).

The lovely ladies at MAC in the Louder Lounge gave Becs a 'Rebel Rebel' look - heavy on the eyes and strong on the lips for a rock chick look which lasted all weekend.

The moment that made us feel OK about wearing shorts

Jules took a trip to St Tropez (not literally, she wishes) pre festival to make sure she was golden brown for the scorching weekend. This made it a lot easier to don those skimpy shorts (no-one needs to see white pasty legs).

Becs hit Vita Liberata in the Louder Lounge on Day 1 of V for a natural looking tan with a nice shimmer that reflected nicely in the lights as the dusk set in. Perfect for the party vibe!

The moment that made us feel like Lily Allen

It's *all* about nail art right now (see Katy Perry, Lily Allen and Rihanna for more details) and #Teamomg made sure they looked the part by visiting Boom Nails in the Louder Lounge.

Becs opted for bright pink, with an animal print on one finger - but you could get palm trees and even moustaches. Super cute.

The moment that made us feel like a celeb

They may have had the longest queues in the VIP area but it was worth it for the Guess sunglasses that we traded in for our old cheapos. We opted for a slightly winged, large framed pair that made us feel worthy of rubbing shoulders with the A-list gang.

Rocking up to Very.co.uk and choosing a free item of OUR CHOICE also made us feel rather celebrity. So as we swanned off with a monochrome print body-con dress we pretended for a second that we were famous.

The moment we found a celebrity kindred spirit

Above dancing to David Guetta, hanging with One Direction and drinking numerous cocktails, our favourite experience might *just* have been Virgin Media Louder Lounge Anna Mae's Mac N' Cheese. Drool-worthy.

What made us feel even better about the cheesy yum was queuing for it behind X Factor's Diana Vickers, who said she loved the one with hot dogs in. YUM. We always knew we were destined to be BFFs.

Diana Vickers loved the Mac n' Cheese too

The moment that made us feel like were in the Caribbean

As if the scorching heat didn't make us feel like we were on our summer holidays, being serenaded by Bajan band Cover Drive in the Louder Lounge stage area was pretty special.

Having a fruity cocktail in our hand completed the tropical vibe.

The moment that made us LOL

Aiden Grimshaw, who also performed the Louder Lounge stage, told us he was sorry for wearing a vest but it was because it was so hot.

That was all well and good but he was wearing a THICK. WOOLEN. BEANIE. Deary dear.

The moment that made us go AWWW

Seeing Lydia Rose Bright and boyfriend Tom looking all cute together as they hung out and watched Aiden Grimshaw perform. Lyds looked uber cool in a straw boater hat and Tom was taller and hunker than we expected.

A second 'aww' went to the One Direction boys who were spotted hanging out with their girlfriends in the sun.

We chatted briefly to Louis, who told us he was having fun hanging out with his family - naw.

The moment that made us girl crush

Probably seeing Amanda from Cover Drive in a SUPER tight fitting bright pink jumpsuit and DMs that, quite frankly, only she could pull off.

Also up there was Billie Piper who looked like a DREAM in a peach blouse and tiny shorts.

The moment that made us Niall crush

Seeing One Direction's Niall chilling out in the Louder Lounge bar with his mates, eating Mac n' Cheese and doing press ups - in a rather silly fashion - just made us love him in even more.
