2015 Coachella Music Festival Style Roundup

Coachella 1

When it comes to the Coachella Music Festival, boho style reigns supreme—right down to the ubiquitous flower crowns. This past weekend brought out a full range of Coachella cool-kids who marched to the beat of their own hippie drum in Indio, California.

Kendall Jenner: Infusing her Day 1 Coachella style with decidedly western appeal, the model paired her Derek Lam 10 Crosby Spring 2015 suede vest with a striped bikini top, ripped jorts, and Saint Laurent snakeskin booties. A tribal collar necklace and stacks of bangles took the look to the next level with a typical fringe hobo bag rounding it out.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Channeling her inner cowgirl during the fest and at the Forever 21 BBQ, the Brazilian supermodel naturally wore a skin-is-in look anchored by her Forever 21 suede fringe halter top and teeny cutoff denim shorts. I loved the addition of her turquoise jewelry, tall cowboy boots, and wide-brimmed cowboy hat for plenty of kitschy fun.

Gigi Hadid: Rocking another look with plenty of fringe benefits, Gigi was spotted on Day 2, where she added chains and charm to her ensemble consisting of an ASOS fringe suede collar, black cutoffs, a Guess body chain, and H&M ankle boots. With her long blonde windswept waves, she managed to put an adorable spin on Coachella dressing.

Rihanna In Raf Simons – Opening Ceremony ‘M$$ X WT’

Rihanna In Raf Simons - Opening Ceremony 'M$$ X WT'

On Monday (March 30) Rihanna attended the Opening Ceremony’s New York store to support her best friend Melissa Forde, who launched a mini collection of bucket hats designed in collaboration with rapper Wale‘s clothing line Wrkng Title.

The rapper collaborated with Forde on the line after they had a conversation about the gap in the market for the classic accessory, which was a foundation of hip hop fashion back in the day.

No stranger to Raf Simon‘s menswear, Rihanna wore a doodle-covered coat from his Fall 2015 collection, styled with a barely there double-denim outfit plus the Dior Spring 2015 boots she wore to the Tidal launch earlier in the day.

While the coat feels like it contains the scribbles of a mad scientist, she did nail the throwback hip hop look to a tee.

Rihanna In Christian Dior – Tidal Launch Event

Rihanna In Christian Dior - Tidal Launch Event

Rihanna attended the Tidal launch event #TIDALforALL at Skylight at Moynihan Station on Monday (March 30) in New York City, which celebrated Jay-Z’s new music streaming service.

As to be expected, Dior’s newest ambassador wore a look from the brand. Perhaps not so expected was that this Christian Dior Spring 2015 look was actually in tune with her signature style vibe.

The boxy, over-sized blue cotton jacquard jacket and matching scallop-edge skirt took on an edgier, urban spin in the hands of the songstress, who naturally skipped the shirt underneath to showcase her ribcage tattoo.

Her cream Dior boots also added an additional punch of attitude, likewise referencing the contrasting patchwork pocket of the jacket.

With her hair softly piled into a high updo, this sexy-mannish statement was a huge improvement over the singer’s first Dior outing. Would you agree?

Rihanna In Versace – 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Rihanna In Versace - 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Rihanna performed her latest single, ‘B*tch Better Have My Money’ onstage at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (March 29) in Los Angeles, California.

The singer wore black Adam Selman dress with the rest of her look, which included a green fur, combined with thigh high green patent leather boots, a pair of Versace sunglasses with a silver Medusa on the side and a gold and green choker, all from the Versace Fall 2015 collection.

Some might say that this look was an ode to Lil Kim’s ’90s risqué, trendsetting style. I would say that Rihanna and Versace are a perfect brand fit and this look works as a perfect performance piece.

I am also delighted that this look signals that she doesn’t appear to be chained to her current contract.

Rihanna In Christian Dior – ‘Home’ LA Premiere

Rihanna In Christian Dior - 'Home' LA Premiere2

Rihanna attended the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Home’ held at the Regency Village Theatre on Sunday (March 22) in Westwood, California.

The singer wore her first Dior look following the brand’s announcement of her as their newest ambassador.

As I feared, the look just didn’t work.

Her pink Dior silk leather satin dress was all wrong for Rihanna.

Wrong style, unflattering shape. Even in a time when she’s dialled down the sex appeal for softer looks, this one doesn’t cut it. It doesn’t even come close.

I would say I am bitterly disappointed, but I had prepared to be disappointed.

Rihanna In Holly Fulton – ‘Home’ Texas Screening

Rihanna In Holly Fulton - 'Home' Special Screening

Jim Parsons and Rihanna greeted fans before a screening of ‘Home’ held at Cinemark West Plano on Tuesday (March 17) in Plano, Texas.

The singer, who recently made history by being chosen as Dior’s first black campaign star, wore a Holly Fulton Fall 2015 full look with the hero piece being the latex pink mac with embellished detailing.

The look reads lady-like, old-lady-like, but in a good way as I’m charmed by the overall chic appeal and this refreshing current run which sees her continue to showcase a softer side to her style which incorporates plenty of spring pastel hues.

Rihanna completed her look with the same Holly Fulton X Christian Louboutin Décolleté 554 soft pink suede pumps with a crystal set jewel we saw her wear in pink last week.
