Each year, hoards of social media influencers, long-legged models, rock stars and fashionable famous faces descend into the Californian valleys for what is now a veritable breeding ground for selfies and stage-side hook-ups: none other than the Coachella festival. The music and arts event hosts a crowd of thousands who galavant from one stage to another, snapping pics in their carefully curated festival-inspired ensembles. The grassy knolls transform into makeshift runways and celebs offer their finest and sometimes ridiculous carefree get-ups. Here is a small sampling of the celeb fashion Coachella saw this year…
Kendall Jenner, the rising runway darling who has ascended from the ranks of mere child reality TV star, played it down, wearing track pants, a tiny black crop top, and sneakers.
Emily Ratajowski, the model turned actress, graced the crowds with her sun-kissed legs in a simple button up little white dress.
Models Jasmine Tookes, Lais Ribeiro, and Sara Sampaio looked like a trio conjured from one of our most fabulously bohemian festival dreams.
There is absolutely no one who can pull off an outrageous fashion choice quite as well as Bad Gal Riri. Rihanna wore this ensemble which looked as if it would have been more at home accompanied with a parachute.
Crochet, denim and fringing – the holy trilogy of festival fashion. Model Alessandra Ambrosio rocked the look along with a sassy attitude and an adorable teeny tiny fanny pack purse.
When in doubt, don a pair of high-waisted denim cut-offs and killer boots. Shay Mitchell looked chic, cool, calm and collected in the Californian heat.
Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin kept it simple in matching pale denim and white. The models and best friends sipped Bloody Marys and gave Dad sneakers a new lease on life.
Stranger Things starlet Natalia Dyer paired a floral dress with a pair of high-top vans and an oversized satin bomber jacket. The star attended the event with co-star and boyfriend Charlie Heaton.
