18.04.2011- California Dreamin'

Monday, 18 April 2011

Anyone who knows me well will tell you that going to a music festival is my idea of hell. Although I'm sure the atmosphere at places like Glastonbury and Reading is fantastic, I've never seen the appeal of being stuck inside a tent without access to hot water, a proper loo or a comfortable bed. As 'old-before-my-time' as it makes me sound, I'd much rather watch festival coverage on TV, sat on the sofa with a mug of tea and a biscuit or two, content in the knowledge that I don't have to worry about my tent flooding or getting trench foot from my waterlogged wellies. However, if I was to be seduced into going to one festival, it would, without a shadow of a doubt, be Coachella. Not only does the festival attract amazing headliners year on year, but it also takes places in California, so perfect weather is guaranteed. Coachella 2011 took place over the weekend, and, as we've come to expect, was as star-studded as ever. Here are my picks of the Coachella crew's festival fashion:

Diane Kruger in a relaxed maxi skirt and sun hat combo.
Kate Bosworth showing her patriotic side.
Isabel Lucas in a hippy inspired outfit.
Alexa Chung in a failsafe dress and summer sandals.
And, as if more proof were needed that sunny Coachella was the place to be over the weekend, Emma Hill hosted a Mulberry pool party, complete with cocktails, kebabs and more well-garbed guests...

Alexa (again!)
Camilla Belle.
Emma Hill and Gia Coppola.
Nicole Richie.
The pool...
...and the food!

If looking at that photo of the pool doesn't make you want to book a one way ticket to next year's festival then I don't know what will!

What do you think of music festivals? Have you ever been to one? And who was your best-dressed at Coachella?

  2. I never been to a festival either, I've thought about getting day tickets but they're always too expensive, I need absolute silence to sleep so there would be no chance of getting to sleep at a festival so I'd just be miserable after the first day.

    I've never heard of Coachella until now, but it does look like the perfect kind of festival :) xxx

  3. I used to love going to festivals but now people take it too seriously and wear their best clothes and hunter wellies. I go to enjoy myself and wear what I normally wear but with wellies. Reading 10 years ago was great, even 5 years ago but trust me you're not missing anything now. Lots of posh 16 year olds drinking and setting fires xx
