Coachella was officially back at the weekend! <3 For those of you who haven’t heard of Coachella, it’s a huge American Music Festival (similar to Glastonbury/Oxegen etc) but unlike any other in a way with campers, glampers & ravers all commigling in a desert-like scene and thanks to 100-degree days and 60-degree nights, dusty grounds, and rivers of spilled beer there are definitely some challenges built into concocting the perfect Coachella outfit.
Weekend one kicked off in Indio, CA, and the famous festival was packed with celebs once again this year beaming under the hot desert sun looking so in the moment, so ethereal, & so palm-tree-princess-like that have us oh so envious…
The original festival frontierswomen were all about freedom, expressing peace and love with flowing dresses and tresses, liberating their bodies and minds, bearing their bellies and weaving daisy-chain jewellery. These days, it’s a slightly different story. Don’t let the fringe fool you – Coachella is high fashion. But that doesn’t mean it’s any less authentic. After all what could be more liberating than Katy Perry in chandelier earrngs, Rita Ora in a chic crop top or Paris Hilton in a flowy printed maxi dress? These women go afield in whatever they like and WE LOVE IT.
We’re taking a look at the celebrity festival style for inspiration before FESTIVAL SEASON takes over here in Sunny N.I. in May for Radio 1′s BIG WEEKEND!!
Tickets for the Radio 1 weekend were officially to go on sale this morning at 9am but a birdy tells us their website crashed and the tickets will NOW go on sale tomorrow morning instead… all you crazy fans! ; -)
Spotted at the weekend looking ever so STYLISH & SUMMERY included Rita Ora, Paris Hilton, Diane Kruger & Katy Perry… though we HEART Victoria’s Secret Model – Alessandra Ambrosio’s comfy casual look: rocking a crop top, slouchy bag & some neon pink denim short-shorts, every inch of her outfit screams Stylish Supermodel… <3
