The festival of the season that invites the wildest outfits, let’s take a look at some of the most memorable celeb choices, for better and for worse.
Oh, Katy. Festivals are the place where you can go wild with your outfits, but this is not exactly what we had in mind. We know that you’re supposed to take a fashion risk or two, but this is more like a fashion flop. From the retro sunnies to the neon paint splattered dress to those garish pink sandals – it’s a definite no from us.
Behind the knitted ski mask is one of the world’s most famous faces. Bad Gal Riri is a bold, fashion-forward, empowered and fiercely feminist icon. She could make just about anything look good, even snakeskin pants, a button up shirt and a ski mask.
Bella Thorne is a well-known celeb on the festival scene. The stunning young Hollywood crowd leader is often snapped in one of her revealing outfits. Here she wears a fun purple wig and an on-trend bum bag. The wigs are all the rage right now.
Miley Cyrus has never shied away from outrageous fashion. The songstress appears to have experienced her wild years in the spotlight and this outfit is a definite fashion casualty of her rebellious years. It might be a designer label but that doesn’t mean it will look good. The Bangerz singer has made the tongue an accessory.
Actress Vanessa Hudson is the queen of boho. She was a regular face at just about every notable festival. With her long, wavy locks and care-free fashion choices she was the epitome of contemporary festival fun. Here she wears a vividly-colored, patterned kaftan, and she absolutely nailed the festival look, with the earrings and face decorations too.
Steinfeld is one of the beautiful and notable faces of young Hollywood. The actress and singer strutted her stuff around the VIP section of Coachella 2018 in this matching outfit. Though the thigh-high boots and t-shirt looked good, we are still left wondering if she forgot to put on pants…. We are a fan of the makeup and slicked back hair.
Jeremy Scott and Rita Ora
This dynamic duo looks super cool. The gold and the Indian inspired jacket paired with hip hop gangsta cap really makes a statement. Rita is killing it all in gold.
Ariel Winter is one of those actresses who could not look less like her onscreen persona. Best known for her wholesome role as Alex on Modern Family, this young starlet is much more fashion forward and body confident than her character. She is rocking the mermaid pink long locks we dig it.
This Victoria Secret model looks like something out of an other-worldly dream. In her fishnet stockings, tiny shorts and butterfly wings, she fluttered around this festival in true celeb fashion. This is about as festival inspired as you can get.
Crochet is one of the undeniable festival fashion staples. Jenner rocked this trend at this Coachella back in 2016. She paired her crochet-knit dress with bold jewelry, strappy flats, retro sunnies and cute little buns on her head. We love the neck jewels.
The heiress is known to make her way through the festival crowds wearing something bright, revealing and slightly out of date. We’re all for having fun but the cat ears might have been more appropriate for Halloween.
We love everything about this look. The model looked like something out of a festival dream at this year’s Coachella event. She wore a fringed denim jacket, a pair of tiny crochet shorts, an adorable purse fanny pack and a pair of old-school glasses. Cool, chic and on-trend. Not to mention that bod! What festival dreams are made of.
The youngest Jenner is arguably the most fashion forward and successful. She is all about proudly showing off her curves. The social media star has most recently given birth to her first child and it appears her body could not have bounced back any quicker. She sported this skin-tight look at Coachella 2018.
Best known as the lead singer of The Pussycat Dolls, Scherzinger is a talented exotic beauty. She rocked up at this year’s Coachella festival in this casual denim look paired with a gorgeous set of embroidered thigh-high boots.
The Kardashians seem to be serious fans of the new athleisure look. We know that she has the body for it but we feel like this outfit might have been better suited for the gym. Kourtney enjoyed the 2018 Coachella performances along with Kim, Kendall and Kylie. We know its Yeezy’s latest season but save it for spinning.
The bad girl singer, rapper and producer is all about turning heads with her fashion risks. She made her way to the stage in this head-to-toe leopard print ensemble, complete with a face chain. We’re not fans of the look but she definitely gets points for creativity. This will definitely go down as a memorable look.
For the second weekend of Coachella 2018, Kylie Jenner switched up her look and opted for a waist-length bright pink wig. She wore a tan patent leather matching outfit before heading out to the main stage with her famous sisters. For someone who has just popped out a baby, she is looking like one hot mama.
Winnie Harlow rose to fame as a contestant on America’s Next Top Model. Since her stint on the reality TV show she has become one of fashion’s rising stars. Here, she reclines poolside at Coachella 2018 in a revealing black lace get-up. We love this choice of outfit.
Sofia Ritchie is yet another young star who rocked the more casual, athletic-inspired look. In a pair of Vans, satin tracksuit pants and a tiny white bikini, Ritchie partied drank and chilled by the pool along with the rest of the A-lister crowd. She has made headlines for her relationship with Scott Disick, we wonder if she bumped into the Kardashian sisters.
She’s no stranger to flaunting her curvalicious figure on social media. Amber Rose turned heads parading her eye-popping physique at 2018’s festival. The outspoken model, 34, looked head-to-toe cool in a striking electric jumpsuit. She is known for making an impression at the festival, and didn’t disappoint this time.
Thorne made a particularly revealing appearance at the 2017 Coachella music and arts event. In a shiny silver poor boy cap, a bra and panties and a barely-there see-through dress, the former child star cheered on the performers from the sidelines. With a figure like that, you can wear what you want.
Cardi B has quickly become one of the rap and hip hop genre’s most noteworthy faces. She’s bold, talented and unashamedly herself, especially when it comes to her fashion choices. She opted for an Andy Warhol-inspired look that made use of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic image. Not many could pull this bold look but she did.
Rapper, French Montana made a casual appearance at Coachella 2018. He rocked up, donning a matching pair of pants and a jacket, each printed with the same tropical palm tree pattern. As always, he sported a few gold chains with the look. Simple yet effective, he definitely made his mark.
Foxx never seems to age. This outfit is definitely a unique example of the actor emulating the younger generation’s current style obsessions. Here he wears a scorpion-printed surgeon’s mask, jeans, a bomber jacket and a pair of chunky boots.
Beyonce thrilled the masses with her 2018 Coachella performance. She kept the crowd on their toes with a string of outfit changes, here she wore a black patent leather ensemble while singing her anthem ‘Formation.’
Perry made yet another questionable fashion choice with this all-white mesh dress and bikini. She accompanied the look with a pair of bunny shoes and a bag which looked more like a taxidermy rabbit head. Katy, have you not learnt your lesson yet? Looks like that is a no!
Top model and social media sensation Gigi Hadid appeared to make a special nineties tribute to the CD with this look. The beauty was photographed with designer Jeremy Scott wearing this printed silk shirt with a gold Moschino chain belt.
The reality star really started off the wig trend, and here she did not disappoint with her fashionista expertise. This mermaid braid look is one of our favorites, and really became a trend setter. Paired with the bright bikini that shows off what her mama gave her, we can’t wait to see what she will come up with over festival season.
Katie Perry has rocked some interesting looks over the years at the popular festival as you can see. This one is not our fave. Katie, Katie, Katie, you could have redeemed yourself, but it appears she didn’t want to. We don’t know which is worse.
The rocker is a Coachella regular, and this year he decided to rock a Hawaiian hat, with a patterned red shirt and dark shades. Nice try if you think you were going to go unnoticed.
Model Nazanin Mandi, who also is also rapper Miguel’s fiancé, rocked a super cute outfit at Coachella this year. Retro sunglasses are all the rage this summer, whether they’re colorful frames like Mandi or cat-eyed frames. Her two piece suit hugs her figure perfectly, and we are loving the festival fringe. We like how the blow up pool animal is matching.
The once innocent pop stars are now channeling their rocker looks, with Joe nailing the matching animal print on his shoes and shirt. Nick who caused quite a stir with female fans looks very serious in his palm tree print.
Singer Halsey always makes a style statement. The innovative fishnet tights under ripped jeans look is totally working for her, plus the pink hair and sports bra, is on point. We love this look.
The socialite can always be found at the hot festivals, rocking interesting outfits. We think for 37 years old, she looks incredible, and love the alien chic look she is rocking here. Especially the fur jacket. #Nailedit.
The model is known for her assets, and this interesting look certainly shows them off. She is rocking some space chic shades that match her bright all in one suit. She definitely won’t get lost in the crowds.
The Muse front man, is also rocking the space look. We are a fan of the shades and top hat. But he looks slightly frightening. What do you think?
The hip hop rapper took to the stage to perform in an interesting outfit. He chose an all white two piece suit for the simple look. This did get the crowds going, yet it does look like he is performing a sermon not a rap.
This top model is bringing the scrunchie back. If you got it flaunt it they say, and she most certainly is. It seems that she has taken a trip back to the 90’s but it somehow works.
Once again, Rihanna wowed fans in this outrageous ensemble at last year’s Coachella festival. The singer wore a head-to-toe swarovski crystal body suit along with denim shorts, a top and a pair of sunglasses. It seems Rihanna can do no wrong – fans loved the look.
The DJ and actress is known for her out there fashion sense, and she did not let us down with this choice of jacket when she played a set at the festival. We do get chicken vibes though. If she wasn’t so gorgeous she wouldn’t get away with it.
She really does look like the cherry on top! We love this outfit. The British singer totally smashed her Coachella look. The fun and playful pattern really accentuates her figure, and her trendy festival shades top off the simple yet effective look. Nice one Rita.
The hip singer performed her first on stage performance, donning interesting eyebrow design and a sparkly shirt ensemble that resembled a rain coat. We are not too sure about this, but it is definitely memorable that is for sure.
The incredible plus size model looks stunning in this outfit. She embodies a greek goddess, and we love everything about this look. From the simple eye makeup, to the gold choker and wrap, this is simple yet makes a huge style statement.
The rapper likes to shock audiences, and she certainly did with this clown inspired look. We are not sure if that is what she was going for, but she looks like an animal balloon from a children’s party. Nikki, we are going to have to say no to this one.
The fashion designer plays it cool with his hipster Moschino jacket, cut off denim shorts and basketball top. We love how he is wearing a crown, and holding a large champagne cup. He definitely made a style statement here.
The singer-songwriter donned the denim on denim look and paired the ensemble with dark shades. With a figure like that, she would look good in anything, but we have to say, we are loving the outfit, especially the gold body chain and cool desert style boots.
Gaga always heads to the stage with a bang, and wows the crowds with her choice of attire. For her performance, she went with the biker chic, slightly s and m feel, but whatever this fashion forward genius rocks up in, she will always get away with it.
Erykah Badu’s ‘nude’ dress got fans talking. Los Angeles-based designer, Huguette Calant, created this piece for her, and it represents girl power. We are not sure about the top hat, it makes the cool piece seem more like a halloween costume. Sorry Erykah, not one of your best looks.
The singer absolutely killed it in this biker inspired two piece. We love the pattern and the blue and red leggings. Even though she has hung up her singing hat, she always impresses with her style choices, and this is a great Coachella look.
The reality star and top model, knows how to shine. She stylishly shows off her figure with a sparkly crop top and matching arm cuffs. We love the hat, and everything about this outfit. The red lipstick really tops it off perfectly.
Kendall’s baby sister is not so much of a baby anymore. The new mom is the queen of wigs, and we have to say, we love the short purple wet look a lot. This is one of our favorite Kylie Coachella looks by far. The off the shoulder snake skin crop top is the bees knees, there is nothing not to love about this. She always takes risks, and we have to be honest, they always seem to work for her.
The singer performed with Cardi B in a memorable performance, as Coachella was just the beginning of her much anticipated Sweet Sexy Savage tour. She turned heads with this super cool 90’s style all white look. She reminded us of TLC.
Singer Justine Skye rocked a full Gypsy Sport printed set, alongside a pair of comfortable Fenty x PUMA sneakers. Proving that comfort and style go hand in hand, Justine sported the full newspaper-print set with a pair of edgy shades to finish off the look.
The rapper was definitely the centre of attention on stage with his bright yellow vest. He stepped out in a look that could’ve been straight out of his notorious “Hotline Bling” video. The rapper, who caused pandemonium in the crowd, was hard to miss in a puffy yellow vest that could have doubled as a life jacket.
This young model has found the ultimate accessory: A cool body chain that really accentuates a her tall, toned body. Chanel chose to leave little to the imagination, rocking the body jewelry and knee-high boots, making this one of Coachella’s best outfits by far.
Does Queen B ever disappoint? Beyonce truly wowed the Coachella crowds on the 2018 stage with a memorable performance that proudly celebrated her back heritage and pride. She even shocked everyone when Kelly and Michelle, her fellow Destiny Child members made a surprise appearance. This embellished afro-inspired look made her look like royalty.
Riri does it again! We’re not quite sure of what to make of this all-brown outfit. The star posted the image to her Instagram account to the delight of her millions of fans. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again; it’s not fashionable until it’s worn by Rihanna.
