I am really excited to see what will happen this weekend and next weekend at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival. There are some real megawatt style stars who are performing and there are always a fair share of stars who are captured on the fields of the festival as guests. It will make for a really great two weekends of style on and off the stages of the festival. Beyonce is headlining both Saturdays and I am really excited to see what she will bring to the stage at the festival after canceling last year due to the fact that she was pregnant with her twins. I went back and fourth on many different styles for her to perform her set on the stage at the festival. I ultimately decided that this black sequined Saint Laurent Fall 2018 RTW micro mini dress which features a plunging neckline, strong shoulders, 3/4 length sleeves, and blue and yellow 3D floral embellishment to rock on the stage. I think that this dress meshes the bohemian glamour of the festival and the edgy glam that we usually see Beyonce rock on red carpets. I think that Bey would definitely own the stage in this look with full waves and a pair of black sequin Christian Louboutin ‘Louise X’ over the knee boots. Hailee Steinfeld knows how to deliver a really great casual moment at Coachella, and I am really hoping that she will deliver a really chic moment again this year. I went shopping on the online racks at REVOLVE and found this T by Alexander Wang ensemble which features a sage green ribbed long sleeve crop top and a black and white pinstripe jumpsuit which comes with low-slung elastic shoulder straps, fitted waist, and wide-leg silhouette and I think that this look would be a really perfect moment for her to rock during the festival. Keeping the laid back spirit of this look I would style it with a pair of old gold Stella McCartney ‘Elyse’ metallic platform creepers, loose waves with some braids, and a pair of green Elie Saab round ridged-frame gradient sunglasses to ensure that Hailee has a really chic moment on her hands. Rita Ora is another who tends to pop up at many of the Coachella shows and parties and does so usually looking extremely glam. Even in the sun and dust of the Indo, California fields Rita is never far off of her signature glam. This year I decided to go for a more casual look, with a glam tracksuit inspired ensemble from House of Harlow 1960. The look which consists of a holographic cameo print jacket and track pant are the perfect iteration of Rita’s signature glamour for the fields of the Coachella festival. I think that with a black lace Cosabella ‘Never Say Never’ halter bralette, gold Christian Louboutin ‘Mad’ metallic lace up combat boots, and a pair of green Ray-Ban ‘Junior Junior’ round sunglasses that this will be a really major moment for Rita to have among the masses of festival goers. SZA will take the main stage at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on Friday night. She is one of main acts of the day being the biggest name right under The Weeknd. I don’t really know much about her style, but after seeing her angelic Atelier Versace on the Grammy Awards red carpet and Monse on the Grammy Awards stage I think I got a little more of an idea. I am really excited to see where her style will head as her style star continues to rise! For her Coachella performance I think that SZA would look chic as hell wearing this Off White c/o Virgil Abloh Fall 2018 RTW ensemble which features a tapestry corseted bustier shorts and white menswear inspired button down shirt. I think that if she styled this look with her signature long teased curls, winged eyes, and a pair of nude ballet pink Jimmy Choo ‘Mya’ stretch suede over the knee boots with metallic crystal embellished heels that she would definitely own the Coachella stage. Showcasing another major style moment for her. The Weeknd is headlining both Friday night slots on the main stage at the festival this year. He just released a new eight song EP called “My Dear Melancholy,” and it was definitely more of a laid back album than is pop-y “Starboy” album. It was slower and more sensual. It is exactly the type of music that made me fall in love with him, stripped back a little. He has an interesting performance style. He isn’t one to take the stage and command an audience for an hour like Adele and he doesn’t do theatrical choreography like Justin Beiber or Jason Derulo. He usually has a very visual effect heavy show and has hidden in set pieces to perform full songs during his shows. He is also a fashion plate. He has relationships with most of the big houses that design menswear and I really want to see him deliver some major festival style on the stage when he takes the spotlight. I think that he would shut down the stage wearing this dark wash Valentino Spring 2018 Menswear three piece Canadian tuxedo. Not many people can rock denim on denim on denim (sorry JT and Brit) but I think that the cool attitude that Abel gives off would make it a really cool moment. I would keep the ugly dad shoe trend alive and well with this look too styling it with a pair of green and pink Valentino sock-knit lace-up caged sneakers to add a pop of edge and color to this performance ensemble.
The 2018 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival will take place from Friday April 13, 2018 to Sunday April 15, 2018 and Friday April 20, 2018 to Sunday April 22, 2018.
