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:

2014 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival - Weekend 1 - Day 1

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.

David Macklovitch

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

Solange

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.

Listen to a New Track By Lana Del Rey

-------

It seems that Lana Del Rey has cured her “Summertime Sadness.” In last year’s popular warm-weather jam (which actually came out in 2012 but exploded in the summer of 2013 after it was remixed by French DJ Cedric Gervais), the artist sings of “dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight.” Well, it seems like SoundCloud’s latest leak may be Del Rey’s direct follow-up. Titled “Meet Me in the Pale Moonlight,” the song surfaced last night, just ahead of Del Rey’s Ultraviolence tour, which kicks off at Coachella next weekend. The new tune not only boasts the heady, legato melodies we’ve come to love, but also funky guitar riffs akin to the groove of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky.” Does it have the potential to become a summer anthem? Absolutely—no remixing required.

At The Met: Cape Town

-------

We’ve already noted the influence Angelina Jolie had on this year’s Met ball red carpet. No less influential: Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow’s cape-and-gown Tom Ford look was Oscar night’s best, and it’s proven to have legs at the Met, too. Gwyneth’s stylist, Elizabeth Saltzman Walker, told me at an event in Paris that she was inspired by Jackie Kennedy’s timeless chic when working on Gwyneth’s Academy Awards look. Last night, some of those donning capes, like Maria Grazia Chiuri, in Valentino, went for classic, too. But there were just as many others who chased glitz and glam. Lana Del Rey sparkled in custom Altuzarra, and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, in Dolce & Gabbana, reminded me of an Italian movie star from the sixties. Sally Singer was lacy in Nina Ricci, but the cherry on the surrealist cake goes to Linda Fargo in custom Naeem Khan. Shocking, Schiaparelli-style.

Who’s That Girl?

-------

The Costume Institute’s Prada/Schiaparelli exhibition is well on the way, which means only one thing: The annual Costume Institute Gala is coming soon, too. Designers scramble to snap up celebrity dates for one of fashion’s biggest nights, and competition is fierce. So far, only two pairings have been revealed. Joseph Altuzarra will be taking love-her-or-hate-her chanteuse Lana Del Rey, who has been an all but inescapable presence in the cultural conversation for months. (Is she authentic? Inauthentic? Can she sing? Does it matter?) This afternoon, it was revealed that Proenza Schouler will be taking Australian actress Isabel Lucas, to which the resounding response is…who?

If you haven’t heard much about Lucas yet, it’s likely that soon you will. The young actress is well-known in her native Australia, where she rose to fame on the soap Home and Away, but much farther under the radar in the U.S., despite roles in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Daybreakers, Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe’s grisly vampire flick. But Lucas has caught the eye of some of Hollywood’s most powerful and respected. Steven Spielberg cast her in his miniseries The Pacific in 2010, and she nabbed a key role in The Tree of Life director Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, alongside Natalie Portman and Christian Bale. And though she may look new, Lucas is no stranger to the fashion scene—this isn’t even her first Met gala. She attended last year, finding her way onto several best-dressed lists, as a guest of Louis Vuitton.

Ralph Rucci To Join The Ranks Of De La Renta And Lagerfeld, 49 Years Of MJ, Elisa Sednaoui’s New Film, And More…

-------

Following in the footsteps of Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta, Karl Lagerfeld, and Tom Ford, designer Ralph Rucci will be receiving the André Leon Talley lifetime achievement award at Savannah College of Art and Design next month. In addition, Rucci’s designs will be on display in an exhibition at the school’s gallery. [WWD]

In honor of Marc Jacobs’ 49th birthday today, Huff Po dug through the archives and created a slideshow of some of his major moments. Click the link to check out images of the designer with some of his muses and leading ladies over the years. [Huff Po]

Here’s music’s latest odd couple: Axl Rose and Lana Del Rey. The New York Daily News reports that the two were spotted together in Los Angeles over the weekend, and last month, Del Rey attended two back-to-back GNR shows (not to mention, she’s got a song entitled “Axl Rose Husband”). [NYDN]

In LifeStyle Mirror’s feature story today, Elisa Sednaoui reveals that her latest project is a documentary, entitled Kullu Tamam (“Everything Is Good” in Arabic). The film, which Sednaoui co-directed and produced, “focuses on how villagers in southern Egypt have been coping with the uprisings in the Middle East.” [Lifestyle Mirror]
