Coachella Festival 2015

The highly anticipated return of Coachella Music and Arts Festival arrived in a torrent of blistering temperatures and eccentric trend movements, delivering the sun-worshiping fans an unbeatable line-up alongside A-list celebrity sightings.

With the venue annually based within the expanse of the Colorado Desert, CA, the sea of onlookers witnessed performances from the likes of George Ezra, David Guetta, Drake, Alabama Shakes and Madonna.

Among these attributed artists were outstandingly memorable acts from the most highly admired musicians.
Florence and the Machine dazzled the Empire Polo Club on day three with an illuminating rendition of the bands popular classics combined with new material, all compressed into an inspired fifty minute set. In true hippie-loving style, Welch requested the audience to ‘embrace each-other’ for the pinnacle of her show, to which the spectators obediently proceeded to fondly hold their unfamiliar neighbours in the crowd.

Marina and the Diamonds offered an exceedingly energized show of the artist’s most popular tracks and the latest releases from her album ‘Roots,’ all the while maintaining the captivation of the audience with her irrefutably ardent presence and focus.

Other notable mentions include the impeccable rapping abilities coordinated against powerful dance routines achieved by Azealia Banks, with the queen of trip-hop, FKA Twigs, performing a theatrical yet intense set earning the star a rapturous response.

Whilst the exhibition of musical talent is an undeniably vital element to a festival like Coachella, the animated prediction of ‘who wears what’ sets the event as a highly trend dominated experience for all…

With the most influential celebrities and brands governing the fashion behind Coachella, it is for us to consider who succeeded in pulling off the most commended of looks.

Common trends this year brought an evident fusion of romantic summer vs bohemian babe, with the majority of the venue decked in embroidery and lace, fringing, metallic basics, safari and floral prints and the traditionally accepted cropped tops and frayed denim. Styled with an overflow of jewels, accessories and an alluring array of body art, the festival acted as a make-shift summer fashion show for the globe to admire.

One particular item stood out above the rest as a crucial feature of a Coachella inspired get-up;
the statement jacket.

Demonstrating how this piece alone can make you stand out above the rest, Kate Bosworth showcased her trend-setting Etro jacket styled over a Kepner dress for the ultimate boho-chic appeal.

With Alexa Chung exhibiting effortless charm in a chic Chloe Plisse silk-chiffon midi and Katie Perry’s blossoming Lanvin Maxi, the celebrities of Coachella were incontestably flaunting their festival favourites.
