Pukkelpop Disaster
Mark Ronson & The Business Intl. performed at Pukkelpop in Belgium last week, where Mark was seen mixing the brights, 1940's and tailoring trends all at once. The postbox red tied in perfectly with this season's colourful tailoring and gave the look a classic edge rather than a garish one. He prevented himself from looking too formal by teaming the suit with a basic white polo, and added some festival to the ensemble with glitter and face paints.

Sadly, Pukkelpop 2011 will not be remembered for distinctively impressive costumes or performances. An aggressive freak storm hit the festival yesterday (Thursday 18.08.11). Despite only lasting around ten minutes, it lifted trees from the ground, collapsed the main stage and took the lives of five people. The festival was due to run until this Saturday but has been cancelled in respect for those who lost their lives.

Ronson, who recently lost his close friend Amy Winehouse, said "We're so genuinely sorry for the families and friends of the people that lost their lives and those that were injured, and we will be thinking of them for a long time."
