In what once started out as a fairly secluded haven for music lovers, Coachella has now grown to become more of a backdrop for celebrities, athletes and bloggers alike to snap one for the ‘gram while decked out in the latest spring fashion. Floral hair crowns were replaced by dad hats and gladiator sandals swapped out for branded sneakers.
Off-the-shoulder looks, slogan tees, platform and bralettes were in galore….some of the hottest looks in fashion right now. As this festival has gained more mainstream recognition, A-list stars are deigning upon themselves to make an appearance, giving us plenty to look forward to over the stretch of two days, April 14 to 16.
But, it takes true talent to blend the hippy, free spirit of the festival with high fashion. Here are my favorite looks from the 2017 Coachella Music Festival.
It wouldn’t be Coachella if I left off the Queen herself, Vanessa Hudgens who has made Coachella her stomping grounds before it become mainstream…bringing some of the most iconic looks every year. Vanessa brought a range of styles this year — from a glittering gold top to a more low key, comfy vintage dress — she looked amazing every day. My favorite look was her hipster cowboy ensemble: a simple lacy bralette paired with a matching hat and denim shorts with an elegant shawl adding the perfect touch of color.
And yes. My number two pick is Rihanna who did a throwback to her iconic Swarovski dress from the CFDA awards two years ago: this time in a sequined body stocking underneath a Gucci vest and denim shorts. This look just oozes the bad girl RiRi we’ve come to know and love. It was the perfect mix eye-catching, fashionable yet sexy.
My third favorite look was Kate Bosworth’s chic pantsuit paired with designer sandals that fit in perfectly with the desert landscape. The whole look exuded an air of elegance and calmness that was refreshing from the usual manic of Coachella fashion. It really suited Kate’s sophisticated yet charming image.
Fourth on my list is Black-ish star Yara Shahidi. This young starlet is slowly making waves with her fusion of bohemian and retro styles. She was dreamy in a floral dress with her natural tresses flowing free. The unique neckline with a peekaboo orange top really upgraded the look to be more stylish yet cute.
Next up is Emma Roberts took on a more high fashion look at Coachella at the Revolve Desert House with her black and white checkered dress paired with purple heels. The off-the-shoulder style added a more feminine touch while the puffed sleeves and tie belt brought more character to a dress. The white-rimmed cat-eye shades was the perfect touch to elevate her look.
And last but definitely not least: Hailee Steinfeld in a rocker chic outfit comprised of a see-through top layered over a black bandeau paired with black thigh-high stiletto boots. Total girl crush.
Well, these are my top looks from the 2017 Coachella and I can guarantee there are more great looks out there so be sure to tweet us @SneakPeekTV your favorite celeb look. Back to our hosts!
