The Coolest Coachella Celebs and Influencers to Follow
From Bad Bunny to Kylie Jenner, we reckon this lot are gonna provide the best inspiration for festival season...
It’s time to get your cowboy boots out and pair them with a neon green bikini and frayed, spray-painted bubblegum pink gilet because we’re headed to Coachella! Well, via Instagram at least.
April brings us one of the most anticipated music festivals of the year, which also happens to be the first and arguably most influential in terms of fashion.
As Coachella comes before any other major festival, it’s the perfect one to watch for that much-needed inspo for your own festival wardrobe this summer. With an endless number of performers, celebrities, models, YouTubers, IG baddies and general influencers attending every year, the trends are set for us live from the desert. Known as the place for celebrities to throw the style rule book out the window and take risks, you can never predict what looks are going to come and slay.
You can prepare for it by advance-following some of the most stylish names who are more than likely to be attending the festival in ‘fits that will shake up the gram.
Vine star-turned-actor Rickey Thompson slays Instagram on the daily with his effortlessly styled outfits. Whether he’s partying or ranting in his living room, he always surprises us with his combinations of rough and smooth, street and boujee, edge and fun. He’s gonna turn it out, for sure.
We just know that Amanda Steele is gonna be serving hair, body and face. Her evolving style is sure to take a left turn for the festival, and her beauty looks will no doubt be the make-up to try yourself.
Rihanna protégé and the face of Fenty Everything, we hope that Coachella is on Slick Woods’ schedule because she is truly one-of-a-kind. Unique, daring, unpredictable and always next-level, Slick will provide endless wardrobe inspo for this summer.
She might be performing at the festival this year but Solange can still be one-to-watch when it comes to her fashion both on- and off-stage. The ethereal queen makes everything look incredible, so we can’t wait to see what she brings.
Model Shamari Maurice has frequented Coachella for many years now, and every year he reveals a new side of him. Whether opting for a more casual look or dressing up, he always looks effortlessly put together in ways we aspire to be.
Now this one might seem obvious but come on, you can’t keep up with Coachella without checking who Kylie Jenner is wearing. Last year she made highlighter wigs trendy, so who knows what she’ll bring this year?
Another performer who is sure to blow us away with his wardrobe alone is Bad Bunny. The incredible star has made a name for himself in the fashion world with his non-binary approach to personal style. His flirtatious and androgynous style is always super fun and colourful, and will hopefully encourage others to forget about the label and take risks themselves.
For those who prefer to keep things more neutral and subtle in their clothing and beauty, Sofia Richie is a long-time Coachella fan who always keeps things earthy, cool and timeless - apart from when she's feeling her oats like this major red-on-red outfit. Even in Anastacia sunglasses, she's still chic AF.
Mikey Foster and Scootie Anderson of Social House areinst two of Ariana Grande’s best friends and also trend-setters in the making. The artists are super different yet compliment each other aesthetically, keeping things loose, adventurous and fun, which is always welcome when men’s fashion can sometimes be quite stale.
We simply couldn’t have a style feature about Coachella without mentioning the OG Coachella queen, who undeniably defined the festival’s boho-chic aesthetic and made it a place for celebs to go all out: Vanessa Hudgens. What theme will she follow this year? What is her 2019 vibe? Will she wig it out or let those dark, long curls flow?
Whatever Miss V - and the rest! - go for, we cannot wait to see!
