Solange Knowles In Alice + Olivia – 2013 Coachella Music Festival

Solange Knowles In Alice + Olivia - 2013 Coachella Music Festival

The general consensus was that Solange Knowles’ first look during the 2013 Coachella Music Festival wasn’t quite in tune with the spirit of the event.

With the festivities taking place over three days, the singer had a chance to redeem herself and so she did, wearing a cute Alice + Olivia ‘Candice’ A-line dress.

Her flattering A-line cut dress in a fresh, citrusy lemon print features an open back for a flirty finish.

Opting for floral-print Kate Spade New York sandals may be overkill for some, but I think they blend well with her effortless look.

Did Solange hit the right note on this occasion?

Kirsten Dunst In Ralph Lauren - 2013 Coachella

Kirsten Dunst and boyfriend Garrett Hedlund attended the Neon Carnival party after a day at the 2013 Coachella Music Festival on Saturday evening.

The ‘Melancholia’ actress was the epitome of 1930s chic in the Double RL Ralph Lauren ‘Stella’ dress.

Her navy printed dress with four patch pockets and clear buttons was styled with a grey cardigan, black sandals, a tan Ralph Lauren Collection cross-body saddle bag and a Jennifer Meyer gold pendant necklace.

Kirsten’s effortless look was the perfect day-to-night festival look.

Alexa Chung In Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti – 2013 Coachella

Alexa Chung In Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti - 2013 Coachella

Alexa Chung was one of the many stars who headed to Indio, California for the 2013 Coachella Music Festival.

The British presenter wore a Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Spring 2013 striped ensemble, which consisted of a sleeveless blouse with embroidered shorts.

A green denim jacket wrapped around her hips, flats and a studded Valentino bag and chic shades give the self-proclaimed tomboy’s look just the right amount of edge.

Coachella 2013

Coachella 1

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which kicked off this past weekend, is always a hotbed of eclectic, look-at-that ensembles, as the fest flaunts an anything-goes attitude that many stars are plenty keen to adopt. Cutoffs, crop tops and crochet all come out of the closet, and it’s the one time where even the most reprehensible faux-pas can get a free pass on the fairground—even if they shouldn’t.

Kristen Stewart: The most memorable part of this Kristen sighting was that she was arm-in-arm with her on-and-off boyfriend, Robert Pattinson. Her T-shirt, too-short shorts and Converse kicks were a complete yawn and paled in comparison to Coachella’s other cool and crazy looks. Of course, she would probably say she’s just there for the music not the photo op.

Solange Knowles: The singer continued her love affair with colour and print in this bubblegum-pink Hawaiian floral skirt and melon-orange CC Skye box clutch. Here, though, her go-to style didn’t work so well. The slit was too high, and her white Stuart Weitzman sandals were far too mumsy. She just looked uncomfortable.

Bella Thorne: The up-and-coming starlet really was the flower-child of the fest with her tiara of blooms worn atop her long auburn strands. At only 15, she can get away with shredded denim, a mesh shirt and sneakers, and still look charming.

Kate Bosworth In Topshop – Coachella 2013

Kate Bosworth In Topshop - Coachella 2013

Kate Bosworth and her fiancé, Michael Polish, were the cool kids on the block at Coachella 2013‘s first weekend.

Friday: The actress is a Coachella staple, so it’s no surprise she hit just the right note with her white Topshop top and matching, scalloped-edged shorts paired with a tawny hobo bag and ankle boots. In a sea of over-the-top displays of festival fashion, this pared-back look was a breath of fresh air.

Saturday: On Coachella’s second day, Kate was a walking billboard for the new collection that she designed for Topshop, which is expected in stores next month. I’m buying what she’s selling here, as I loved the bohemian ease of her sheer black overlay dress and the tribal-print vest. Slicked-back hair, aviators and a pair of masculine buckle shoe-boots added edge to this inspired outing.

With these two effortless and completely appropriate looks, Kate is one of my Coachella favourites.

Coachella 2013 Events Round Up

Coachella 2013 Events Round Up

The first weekend of Coachella in California was a smash-hit—and a lesson in free-spirited fashion that plays by no rules. PYTs dotted the sun-drenched indie music scene, as they made the party rounds, proving that while music may be the star attraction, style obviously occupies the main stage, too.

Diane Kruger: The German actress went for grunge at the H&M Loves Music Coachella 2013 kickoff event at the Merv Griffin Estate in La Quinta, California, where she soaked up the action with boyfriend, Joshua Jackson. Naturally, she donned top-to-toe H&M with a Rolling Stones T-shirt, barely bum-covering patterned shorts and black suede, over-the-knee cowboy boots. Polished waves and a red pout managed to keep this look strangely chic.

AnnaSophia Robb: I nearly didn’t recognize the teen incarnation of Carrie Bradshaw, as she left her ‘Carrie Diaries’ character’s SATC fashion sense (and the Manolos) back in New York City. Instead, AnnaSophia wore a beach-y, striped Lacoste dress and a pair of sneakers for the LACOSTE L!VE 4th Annual Desert Pool Party in Thermal, California.

DJ Mia Moretti: This club kid was looking appropriately hipster-ish at the Harper’s BAZAAR Coachella poolside fete at the Parker Palm Springs in Palm Springs, California. The deejay rocked a denim and lace button-down, a pair of cutoffs and matching platform shoes. Large wooden hoop earrings and a complicated crochet hair band, which I’m still trying to figure out, topped off the look. Odd as it may seem, even Dior had a role in this patchwork outfit, as Mia carried a sleek perforated bag from the label.

Sophia Bush: At the H&M Loves Music Coachella 2013 kickoff event at the Merv Griffin Estate in La Quinta, California, the actress was feeling blue, as she coupled together some of the season’s boldest trends—from her navy midriff-baring top to her printed pajama pants and her leopard-print kitten bedroom slippers by Charlotte Olympia. Statement earrings, an embellished chunk of wrist candy and a blue purse sprinkled with gold hearts finished off this schizophrenic look.

Katy Perry In Dolce & Gabbana – Lacoste L!ve 4th Annual Desert Pool Party

Katy Perry In Dolce & Gabbana - Lacoste L!ve 4th Annual Desert Pool Party

Katy Perry joined Rita Ora at the Lacoste L!ve Fourth Annual Desert Pool Party, hosted in celebration of Coachella on Saturday in Thermal, California.

She flaunted her figure in a floral bra top and whimsically printed miniskirt from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2013 collection. Selena Gomez first wore the festive, midriff-baring bustier at the 2013 SXSW premiere of ‘Spring Breakers,’ and she wore it well. But I think Katy does it justice here, too.

While I prefer the longer length of the skirt shown on the runway, it’s no surprise that Katy cut it short, as leggy looks are the hottest trend at this sizzling music scene.

The pop star must have been one of the few daring enough to wear a towering pair of platform shoes to the indie fest. I could have done without these white clunkers, though, which ruined the lighthearted, tropical vibe.

She topped off the retro look with long, glossy locks, embellished gemstone cat-eye sunglasses and a pair of huge statement earrings that I loved.

For some reason, I immediately thought of ’40s Brazilian movie star Carmen Miranda, especially when I saw Katy’s vintage Lulu Guinness clutch—all she needed was a pile of fruit atop her head.
