COACHELLA: If you go down to the DESERT today!

19 April 2010

Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs blinding the audience at the main stage

You’re sure of a big surprise. For every hipster that ever there was, is gathered here for certain because . . .it’s COACHELLA Festival! Despite looking to be covered in manicured lawns, the city of Indio is a part of the Colorado desert, with daytime temperatures frequently rising to over 38C. Gadzooks!

Even if our trusty celebs may have been melting like lollies, they put on a grand show of groomed loveliness.

Top of the crops

Exhibit A – The lovely Knowles sisters. We all know that when Beyonce likes something she advises putting a ring on it. We wonder if she meant a belly button ring because her and sister Solange have been accessorizing their outfits today with a flash of toned tum peeking from beneath their hot-to-crop tops.

Fringing on madness

And from showing off, to covering up – Here are Anne Hathaway and Katy Perry looking swinging in their fringed outfits. LAHV - ley.

The Print-cesses

Tribal prints and Proenza-esque tie dye is a look that refuses to go away this summer. Here is the ever impeccable Kate Bosworth plus the reformed fashion characters, Nicky and Paris Hilton, rocking bright prints like the bucking bronco to be found in the fairground bit.

Mr (and Mrs) T

Henry and Agyness are as usual, leading the fash-pack. They inhabit a strange sartorial dimension, don’t they? A sort of 90’s, but far cooler than the 90’s actually were parallel universe. Today they are showcasing his and hers slogan t shirts. (No, we can’t quite work out what the message is either) but they look smashing don’t they?

40’s housewives

Oh, Miss Osborne, how are you? Very well thank you Miss Von Teese. Did you have any success with that recipe for scones I sent you? Yes, they were delicious. Oh you simply must come on over one day next week – I’ll show that technique with the rollers – you can see my new hooded hairdryer. Oh that sounds marvellous darling.

Doily Good Show

Well, Miss Bosworth surpassed herself over the 3 day even with what seems like a whole summer’s worth of adorable outfits. Here she is in a macrame body con number, a floaty lace crop top with her Daisy Dukes (festie essentials, non?) and here’s ol’ Alexa, showcasing her extravagant pins in a cream lace romper with embroidered edges. Bravo one and all.
