Celebrity Style at Coachella 2017

Celebrity Style at Coachella 2017

Coachella came around as quickly as ever, giving us all a glimpse of hopeful summer sunshine and the festival season. What started off as a music festival itself has quickly become a fashion hub and a melting pot of celebrity presence, with a huge amount of style inspiration taken from this year’s Coachella, we’ll be putting aside the flower crowns…

 

Victoria’s Secret models practically took charge of Coachella (they even had their own hang-out spot called the Angel Oasis) and Lais Ribeiro and Taylor Hill especially looked sensational as a duo. Day 1 saw Taylor in a dusk pink maxi dress complete with headband and lace-up boots whilst Lais went with the bralet trend and paired lacy white with jet-black in the form of a skirt and sandals.

 

Chilling at The Hyde Away party – hosted by Republic Records and SBE and presented by Hudson and Bare Minerals – Emma Roberts channelled fresh, spring vibes in a lacy white Sea New York mini dress, complete with lace-up ankle boots and newly brunette hair.

 

Day 2 of the festival saw Hailey Baldwin absolutely kill it in all denim at the Revolve party, with a cropped jumper, statement earrings and subtle sparkly leggings channelling both grungy and glam.

 

At the star-studded party hosted by Pretty Little Thing x Paper magazine, Lucy Mecklenburgh, known for her role in The Only Way is Essex, took inspiration from the off-the-shoulder trend and made her appearance in this gorgeous blush-coloured dress that really complimented her tanned skin. Lucy held the balance between girly and grungy, completing the outfit with a fluffy clutch, black choker and black chunky heels.

 

Finally, Rihanna…oh, Rihanna. No-one is able to steal the show quite like her. Pics of the singer flooded the Internet after the fashion icon wore a rhinestone studded all-in-one by Gucci that covered everything, including Rihanna’s face. She kept the rest of the outfit fairly simple – obligatory denim shorts and tee as well as platform trainers, part of her collection for Fenty x Puma.
