Jade Jagger, daughter of Mick and Bianca Jagger and founder of Jezebel, graced the pavements of Notting Hill this weekend for Carnival and, as a seasoned veteran of the event, is imparting some wise advice to us uneducated folk about the event!

How long have you been going to Carnival for?
I haven’t been to carnival for  years as have been living in ibiza  every summer for the last 13. Before that I used to go every year for many years and always enjoyed the atmosphere that came to Notting Hill.

What does Carnival mean to you?
I haven’t been to Carnival for quite a few years so im looking forward  to seeing if its changed from what I remember. It was always such a  great weekend to get together with friends and listen to great music and eat great food in the streets. That sort of occasion doesn’t  happen nearly enough these days. Its just a wonderful joyous weekend of freedom in London.

How does one dress glam for Carnival?
I think everyone looks so great and glamorous  at carnival. Its always so vivacious and there’s so much colour and its hard for anyone to look less than fabulous.

What’s your must-have Carnival accessory and why?
A great carnival cape is always a good accessory as it allows you to look fantastic and also gives you a place to hide.

Where are we most likely to find you at Carnival?
On Sunday I’ll be taking my Jezebel Sound System to the Gallo Rosé event at Beach Blanket Babylon Notting Hill, where Ledbury road will be turned into summer beach party.

What’s your favourite Carnival watering hole?
The Pelican on All Saints road will be rocking this year I’m sure. It’s right next to my Jade Jagger shop so I can run between the two throughout the day, probably stealing ice from the pub to take to the shop.

What’s the best after-party?
The Gallo rosé event at Beach Blanket Babylon will be on until 11pm, so plenty of time to party after Carnival shuts down.

Why is Carnival the London party girl’s ultimate fun time?
Who doesn’t love dancing in the streets and eating jerk chicken off the side of the road.

Do you have any other insider Carnival tips
Always handy to know people putting parties on in the pubs! Get your wristbands on before carnival finishes at 7 or you’re gonna be queuing!
