I have never been a mad festival-goer. It has just never been my "thing". Concerts yes. Festivals no.
In my head a music festival would mean the following: greasy hair, peeing in a disgusting toilet, generally not smelling very good and being cold and wet.
However, Coachella is a whole different story. I would be quite happy to became a mad festival-goer if it meant spending the weekend in that Colorado desert at Coachella. Not what differentiates this particular music festival from any other but it may have something to do with the intense Californian heat and the high number of glamorous fashionistas who attend. Hey if it's good enough for them...
Putting the music aside (because, let's face it, I wouldn't be going for the music), its brands in the fashion and beauty world who really love coming and having a presence. They descend on Coachella like flies descend on you know what and this attracts a whole host of beautiful people who want to be seen looking festival chic.
As I am normally not a huge fan of festivals, I also get rather bored of the same old festival attire. You know the look - denim shorts paired with boots and some kind of crop top... oh and don't forget the cliché flowers in hair.
I like to see celebrities and other fashion insiders try something a little different - it's the only way to stand out against the sea of denim shorts.
From the two weekends at this year's Coachella I have picked my top 10 fashionistas who I think pretty much nailed it. If you can dress like these girls at a music festival then I'm definitely on board. Coachella 2016 anyone?!
In no particular order...
1. Kylie Jenner
Becoming more and more obsessed with this girl. Kendall may be the one wearing the clothes on the runway but Kylie is the Kardashian with the coolest style.
Wearing KTZ and killing it as always. She has no fear and knows her style.
3. Rosie Huntington-Whitely
Too pretty for words.
4. Alexa Chung
Alexa Chung really is the ultimate Chloé girl in this piece. In my opinion it is thee best look from both weekends at Coachella... effortless and ethereal.
But looking just as good. Love a maxi skirt.
6. Jourdan Dunn
In love with this look. Purple hair and bug eye sunglasses gets a massive thumbs up from me.
7. Kendall Jenner
Although a little more predictable, I love the slits in this skirt and the gold detailing gives the perfect edge to this hippy look.
8. Jamie Chung
So simple but so stunning.
9. Rumi Neely (author of Fashion Toast)
Colour palette on point. Classy classy classy is all I need to say.
10. Danielle Bernstein (author of WeWoreWhat)
Some could say risky but I like to think that the biggest risks come with the biggest rewards. And in this case, I think her brave look definitely paid off. But only at Coachella.
