Coachella Music Festival 2012

Coachella kicks off the festival season this weekend in Indio, California with music lovers and celebrities sunning themselves under the desert skies with a beer in one hand and friendship bracelets on the other whilst singing along to Radiohead, Azealia Banks and the Arctic Monkeys to name a few.

Last year, Dita von Teese gave us high-end festival chic looks wearing Dior and Moschino Cheap and Chic.

Alessandra Ambrosio did luxe boho in Rebecca Taylor.

Vanessa Hudgens gave us part boho, part Navajo in a variety of looks and Kate Bosworth was effortlessly chic in Topshop, channelling Americana with Parisian flare via her Isabel Marant wedges.

Fail-safe looks that guarantee rock chick edge that will take you from the stage set to pool parties in style include denim shorts, vest tops, crop tops, wedges, gladiator sandals, ethnic jewellery, a crossbody bag, a bikini and a chic straw fedora.

Mulberry, A|X Armani Exchange, Lacoste and H&M are hosting events during the weekend, so we can expect to see many celebs toting Mulberry bags and wearing the other brands mentioned.

    Hi FC, need some advice …what do you think of the Prada Baroque sunglasses?

      They are nice enough, but they are too fady for my personal tastes.

        Thanks FC!!

    I wonder how much Kate Bosworth will pay her stylist to style her for the festival. I think it’s ridiculous that a celeb would pay a stylist to style them to watch a concert. Yes there are tons of paparazzi, but still, it’s not like they are on stage. And besides, Coachella is an extension of street styl.e

    Alessandra is like the epitome of boho chic here!

    I don’t know if the others are, but that picture of Vanessa Hudgens is from last year.

      They are all from last year. Coachella starts this weekend. I believe I said that in the text

    It is supposed to rain for a portion of this weekend’s Coachella. It will be interesting to see what people wear.

    • Fashion Critic April 12, 2012 at 22:31 #

    I am very excited about what Dita von Teese is going to wear this year if she’s going.. And yeah, I’m wondering what they’ll wear since it’s going to rain there this weekend..

    I still love Dita’s look.

    My favorite quote about Coachella… “Every girl at Coachella looks like Pocahontas went to Burning Man.” Except Dita. :)
