While we weren’t personally amongst the sun-soaked masses in Indio, California over the weekend for Coachella, we were indeed skulking allover the Internet watching Kanye’s streamed performance last night for a million hours (snippets and setlist can be seen here) and checking out party pics and celeb shots of all our favorite bold names and performers. Of the slew we saw, we particularly dug deez.
IN THE CROWD:

A wide-brimmed hat definitely seemed to be the most popular sunscreen choice and if it wasn’t the most protective, it was certainly the prettiest. Katy Perry, Kelly Osbourne and Rihanna all went for a lightweight straw chapeau and its versatility can be seen here. It was retro pretty with printed sundresses (gingham D&G for Katy and a beautiful Southern-looking ’40s number for Ms. Osbourne) and yet aptly rugged paired with a camo M-65, denim cut-offs and a very serious expression on Rihanna.
ON THE STAGE:

Skin-tight spandex was par for the course on Robyn, Yelle and Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells fame. Whether it was a printed two-piece flung on with ginormous creepers, or a full, leopard-print catsuit with strooooong shoulders (also with creepers, interesting!) OR paired with an awesome basketball jersey that pays homage both to Michael Jordan AND the “Bells” :) we loved this shellacked layer of goodness on the pretty pins of our favorite stage ladies.
ON BOY WATCH:

Dude style ran the gamut over the weekend and Penn was super-duper informal (and barely dressed; much to our amusement and unanimous swoonage), showcasing the classic al fresco festival fashion we all know and love with rolled-up shorts and sunglasses. Kanye West wore an unbuttoned (nehru collared?) printed blouse aaaaaaand sneakerheads went mental over the unveiling of the much-awaited Air Yeezy 2s on his feets and Chromeo’s David Macklovitch (and sibling to none other than Fools Gold label founder/DJ/Duck Sauce member/forever hottie A-Trak) donned a perfectly cut, all-white suit looking completely overdressed and GORGEOUS.
