Coachella 2016 – Festival Fashion
It’s that time of year again.. The most fashionable festival!
The word ‘festival’ may conjure up images of sodden fields and mud-splattered wellies, but over at Coachella it’s an altogether more classy affair.
And as celebrities and supermodels descended upon California for the first weekend of festivities, it was clearly the fashion – not the music – that was taking centre stage.
It was a sea of YSL, Gucci, Sonia Rykiel and delicate vintage dresses as A-list guests ditched wellies and cagoules in favour of oversized shades and sequins – and as a result, fellow guests could have been forgiven for thinking they’d stumbled into a runway show at Paris Fashion Week.
