Indio’s Finest: The Best Fashion Moments From Coachella

-------

Though most festivalgoers consumed themselves with the “street” style in Indio, we shouldn’t forget whom we actually dashed to the desert to see. Pharrell’s hat, Lorde’s take on normcore, and André 3000′s on-trend beauty embrace were just a few of the style statements we saw at Coachella. Here, some of the most notable sartorial choices from the Coachella music festival:

Bryan Ferry

British singer/songwriter Bryan Ferry kicked off day one of Coachella in an embroidered floral tux combo from Kim Jones’ Fall ’13 Louis Vuitton collection.

One half of the electrofunk duo Chrome paired Saint Laurent’s Sumi Ink Club moto jacket in the best way possible, with ripped jeans.

Beyonce’s stylish sis Solange wore a red-hot runway look from Max Mara Spring ’14 for weekend one and Azede Jean-Pierre Spring ’14 during weekend two.

Kid Cudi

Crop tops are completely unavoidable when it comes to festival attire, but when Kid Cudi showed up in a cropped sweatshirt (on both weekends), he had us feeling all sorts of nineties nostalgia à la Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Props to the “Pursuit of Happiness” singer for showing the ladies how it’s done.

Pharrell Williams

Not seeing Pharrell in his Vivienne Westwood hat is like not seeing flower crowns at Coachella. When we weren’t ogling the music mogul’s impressive guest roster, the “Happy” singer’s Technicolor-adorned denim cutoffs caught our attention—a sure sign that the singer is clearly up on the trends.

Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey’s feminine sartorial choices always seem to complement her lullaby-like melodies, but the songstress opted for bolder statements of dress during both weekends of the festival. The “Video Games” singer wore vibrant minidresses replete with blown-out floral prints—a look that channeled go-go girl meets flower child.

Dum Dum Girls

The Dum Dum Girls kept true to their vampy aesthetic and wore all black e’rything. The desert heat did not prevent the all-female rock band from avoiding dark ensembles—they just wore less fabric, like mesh tops and nipple pasties.

Lorde

Seventeen-year-old singer Lorde, who usually opts for a more gothic style of dress, kept it casual for her performances, showing up in an all-white sports-bra-and-baggy-pants combo during weekend one, and a loose-fitting suit with white leotard during weekend two.

André 3000

Outkast don’t mess around when it comes to beauty trends. Singer André 3000 nailed two of the season’s mane moments when he returned to the stage (for weekend two) in a braided, platinum wig.

Krewella

Krewella singer Jahan Yousaf repped her roots in a black muscle tee that read “Hug Me, I’m Paki,” which she paired with liquid-looking, leatherlike leggings and Adidas high-tops.

STRFKR

Joshua Hodges of the electronica band STRFKR took us from the California desert to a deserted island. The Oregon-born front man gave us all sorts of Gilligan’s Island vibes in a sunshine yellow shirt and straw basket-weave hat.
