Over the weekend, a slew of celebrities, ranging from
Kendall and Kylie Jenner to Drake, took to the desert for the 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. With a solid lineup of headliners that included Lady Gaga, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, and Radiohead, among others, as well as an abundance of high profile pool parties and late night bashes, the stars took the opportunity to break out their best festival attire. Some, like Lottie Moss and Josephine Skriver, took to the traditional ‘Chella uniform of loose dresses, off-the-shoulder tops, and, of course, jorts, while others, like Aja Naomi King, opted for more classic looks that would not be out of place at your typical Sunday brunch. Here, a breakdown of some of the best celeb looks straight from the festival, from least Coachella to most Coachella, with, surprisingly, nary a flower crown in sight. Coachella: One shoulder is exposed; a choker. Not Coachella: Essentially everything else. This look is far too formal for the laid back nature of the fest. Coachella: Easy sundress; hoop earrings. Not Coachella: This ladylike dress reads more church than crowd-surfing. Plus, imagine how dirty it’ll get. Coachella: Relaxed denim; hoop earrings; anklet. Not Coachella: This ensemble is rooted in understated simplicity, which is not very typical of festival fashion. Coachella: Tinted glasses, abs. Not Coachella: The singer looks ready to workout, not rage to Lorde. Coachella: Neon hair; ankle boots. Not Coachella: By normal standards, this is Coachella acceptable; but this is Kylie Jenner we’re talking about. We expect more. Coachella: Sneakers; fanny pack; hoop earrings. Not Coachella: There is a case to be made for uniform dressing, but this baggy jumpsuit is another story. Coachella: Baggy t-shirt; floral prints. Not Coachella: The florals read more tropical than festival, and those knee-high boots are not exactly the most practical footwear. Coachella: A bra as a top; neon sunglasses. Not Coachella: Fur; skinny jeans; heels. Coachella: Off-the-shoulder; cross-body bag; fashion-y sandals. Not Coachella: It all seems a bit too put together for Coachella. Coachella: Off-the-shoulder; jorts; sneakers. Not Coachella: Again, this look is a bit subdued for a Jenner at Cochella. Coachella: Sunglasses; white crochet; ankle boots. Not Coachella: Roberts could have worn this look anywhere in LA. Coachella: Bright color; slip dress; sunglasses; embellishments. Not Coachella: Heels; leather. Coachella: Maxi-dress; floppy hat; chain belt. Not Coachella: Like Bosworth, this look is just slightly too put together. But only slightly. Coachella: Novelty sunglasses; jorts; pink hair. Not Coachella: Not suitable for sitting in the grass. Coachella: Choker; fringe; gladiator sandals. Not Coachella: Camouflage print miniskirt.
Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart
Coachella: Tank tops; jorts; sneakers; fanny pack; bandanas. Not Coachella: This is the quintessential Coachella uniform for the non-famous; give the Riverdale stars one more year and they’ll be back with some fringe and floral accessories. Coachella: Fringe; white crochet; off-the-shoulder. Not Coachella: It’s not all that practical, but then again the model is likely only in VIP tents and not lounging on the grass. Coachella: Romper; off-the-shoulder; floppy hat; pigtails; sunglasses; chokers; ankle boots. Not Coachella: Seems almost a bit too formulaic, no? Coachella: Flannel; overall shorts; chainmail; face paint. Not Coachella: Knee-high boots. Coachella: Top knot; tinted glasses; bodychain; sneakers; jorts; extraneous belt; fringe. Not Coachella: The look is very, very color coordinated. Coachella: Floppy hat; novelty sunglasses; maxi skirt; off-the shoulder; crop top; sneakers. Not Coachella: A choker would have really put this outfit over the edge. Coachella: Double top knots; hair glitter; bikini as shirt; floral print; loose pants; sneakers; tinted glasses; Nylon backdrop. Not Coachella: Nothing. Congratulations, Delilah Belle, you are the most Coachella celebrity of Coachella 2017.
