When the touring summer festival Hardfest made its way to New York recently, we were psyched for the lineup. Die Antwoord, Sleigh Bells, Ninjasonik, Theophilus London, and Rye Rye were all slated to perform, and M.I.A. was the headliner for the whole thing. This hipster-rave bonanza was bound to have amazing concertgoer fashion, so we stopped by to check it out, and we were mighty impressed with all of the M.I.A.-inspired outfits. One of our favorites was Rebecca from Queens, who bought her her zipper mini-dress just to go to the concert. She also wore strands of bright silver necklaces, which she says are “totally M.I.A. because she goes for shine and pizazz and all of that.” And that’s not all! Watch the video for more Hard NYC fashion and M.I.A.-inspired style, including some amazing D-I-Y looks, crazy tops, and press-on tattoos straight from India.
