From the good, the bad, and the party, Coachella covers it all. Every A-lister, blogger, fashion girl, and musician headed out to the desert this weekend for the first round of the annual festival, hitting up not only the stages, but also the hottest off-grounds after-parties, pool bashes, DJ sets, and more. Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, ASAP Rocky, and the king of Coachella himself, Leonardo DiCaprio, raged until the wee hours in Indio and beyond. Click through for an inside look at everything you missed!
As the hottest musical festival of the year, Coachella is the ideal opportunity to show of your most creative fashion looks. It may be synonymous with flower crowns and bohemian chic style, but this year the #OOTDs were on a whole new level.
Over the past week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (a.k.a. our favorite royals ever) have been embarking on an activity-filled tour of India and Bhutan, ingratiating themselves in local culture by feeding rhinos and taking up archery. Of course, Kate Middleton has a history of playing sports in heels, but she took it even further on this trip, looking fabulous whether she was standing in a Jurassic Park-esque jeep or coloring on the floor with children. Click through for 10 shots of her utter perfection.
Oh, Johnny. Gone are the days of your wildest ways, with cocaine and Kate, what happened to your fate? Hotel rooms destroyed, arrested with the boys, your cheekbones were sharp, your hair was unwashed. You were a rebel, a rocker, you were one crazy f*cker.
Hope you caught up on your rest this weekend because we are getting BUSY this week. With a private dinner for Chanel to a little Game of Thrones action on Wednesday, we will have you out until the wee hours for the next few days.
Coachella's where the magic happens. Last night, even Taylor Swift got starstruck as Rihanna took to the stage for a surprise performance with Calvin Harris. Belting out "We Found Love" during a crazy-lively set, RiRi left the audience in awe and T. Swift was there to get it all on video. You would think Harris would have let his girlfriend in on the secret, but maybe romance is all about surprises.
Over the years, Coachella has evolved to highlight different things. At first it was music, as it should be for a music festival, but then it became about the outfits, the parties, the flower crowns, and the Instas. This time around? It's all about the #Squad. From Taylor Swift (duh) to Kylie Jenner, see who was partying with who in Indio.
We're New Yorkers. We want what we want, and we want it fast, close by, and cheap. Well, sometimes we can overlook the third requirement if it's the new most post-worthy food on Instagram ($15 milkshakes and golden $100 donuts anyone?). From an hour commute to a two-stop trip, we turn into hangry creatures on our way home. So we've rounded up the best and most convenient food destinations when getting off the A,C,E downtown. And don't forget to pick up a treat for your roomie, as well!
Did you wake up this morning and realize your Instagram feed has way too many Palm Springs posed sets? The above photo of Jean Pigozzi with some cute friends, can serve as your non-Coachella inspiration for carrying you into the middle of April - where rainy cold days MUST mean May Flowers and Sunny Saturdays by the pool aren't far away.
Venice may have a monopoly on the masquerade, but New York City has its own version of Carnival each year with the Save Venice Ball. On Friday, heiresses and socialites, models and It Girls, donned their most outrageous (and glamorous) ensembles and headed to the Pierre hotel for a wild night of carousing dedicated to preserving the world's favorite Italian city.
