Coachella RECAP đź’› [Episode 16]

 Coachella Music Festival

Coachella takes place every April for 2 consecutive weekends. The first festival was in 1999. The 22nd Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival took place on the weekends of April 14th, 2023 and April 23rd, 2023.  It was held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA. (about 23 miles east of Palm Springs/ 127 miles out of Los Angeles.

Tickets prices were tiered (1 thru 5) ranging from $549 to $649 - VIP tickets started at $1,069

Celebrities, influencers and surprise performers show up yearly.  Typically…you can expect the 2nd weekend to go smoother as a whole.

Celebrities and Influencers typically show up on the first weekend to make sure they get the first look at everything.  So for sure…influencers are always there for weekend one and The Revolve Festival which took place April 15th and April 16th.  A Lot of my favorite fashion looks went down at the Revolve Party.

Coachella Headliners & Top Musical Performances:

Blondie -Debbie Harry is a legend.  She wore a sheer long sleeve top with leather vest and gray acid wash gloves that matched her acid wash pants - but the mirrored poncho that she came out in and later took off just made it for me.  I absolutely LOVED IT!

Bad Bunny -Bad Bunny made history being the first Latin artist to headline Coachella - This gorgeous man wore a custom all-black Mugler look consisting of a leather jacket, buckle-waist pants, and a zipped hoodie with sheer corset paneling at the torso for one of his sets (my personal favorite). He also rocked an open puffer jacket and was showing a beautiful new chest tattoo, six-pack abs and diamond chains.

Rosalía - Holy Smokes, is she fantastic or what??? YESSSSSS! Rosalía wore as custom Acne Studios, including a sheer pink robe with lace-up detailing, a black bustier top, and leather pants. Then came out with black bustier shiny leather pants and a sheer blouse much like the light pink. She rocked Rick Owens futuristic Kriester Sunglasses (one of the hottest products in 2023) Oh and if you missed Rosalía  in a white  bodysuit, shiny white sarong and white block heeled boots.  WHAT…YES!!! Here is a link to see it!

Blackpink - Blackpink made history being the first Korean group to headline Coachella. One of the outfits was a pale pink, jewel-embellished look, featuring corset tops (by Dolce & Gabbana) and cut out detailing. ( with hints of Tiffany & Co. jewelry and Cartier Jewelry). They also rocked black and white ensembles with silver detailed embellishments. 

Frank Ocean - I love this man.  A lot of fans were not happy during his April 16th set after he started an hour late, skipped over many fan-favorite songs, performed mostly sitting down and with his back to the crowd and lip-synched to several tracks. He also ran past the Coachella curfew and abruptly ended his set after less than 90 minutes ….On a doctor’s advice, he did not perform on Weekend 2 due to two fractures and a sprain in his left leg. This was his first time to perform in 6 years.  Justin Bieber had nothing but rave reviews for Frank Ocean and it was good to see another amazing performer comment on such a talent as Frank Ocean.

New Album…Maybe??? I am hopeful!

Hailey Bieber wore a crisp white cropped tank top, faded oversized light-wash jeans, a black Streets Ahead belt, Mejuri earrings, a gold body chain and several layered gold necklaces. Let’s not forget the streak of yellow eyeliner and bright lime green nails. Loved it!

Irina Shayk wore a sheer black slip dress with diagonal ruffles from Rat and Boa, plus a black choker and cross pendant rosary necklace.I also especially liked her in the Etro Skirt, Versace Top and Burberry Shoes - I had to look 3 times to make sure that it wasn’t a matching look.  Amazing way to wear patterns with similar color schemes.

Emma Chamberlain rocked it in a denim corset, miniskirt, a killer pair of red shoes wearing a pair of vintage sunglasses. Plus…new hair…dark hair with bangs. Oh and then showed up in an activewear leisure suit with vest and a fanny pack worn across the chest.

Kendall Jenner wore a black tank top, low-rise black pants, a pair of sandals with  oval sunglasses. Kendall didn’t want to outshine BadBunny.  I absolutely love this girl!  I mean on April 11th she rocked a baby-blue slip dress from Stella McCartney’s tenure at Chloé.  Word on the street is that Kendall likes sustainable fashion and collects vintage fashion  (Article from Glamour Written by Emily Chan) - and don't we all love circular fashion? That’s a Yes!

Kylie Jenner wore a white Courrèges moto jacket with a sheer white bra top that seemed to wrap around her,  a denim zip-up skirt, and tiny  white sunglasses.

Storm Reid wore a tiny metallic pink bralette top and distressed mini denim shorts with white sneakers.

Emma Roberts - I loved the Prada white lace midi dress, the black two piece one shoulder top with matching gathered midi skirt and yellow block sandals and the fringe neutral mini dress with what looked like a vintage pair of cowboy boots and leather fanny pack worn across the chest.
