Best and Worst Dressed at Coachella 2014: Weekend Two

The second weekend of arguably the most star-studded festival of the year kicked off on Friday as celebs and mere mortals alike flocked to the Californian music celebration. 

Best Dressed


Forever the fashionista, Beyoncé posted a number of fun-filled images on her social media accounts during the easter weekend, including multiple with husband Jay- Z at Coachella. The star looked gorgeous in an Egyptian themed tee, chunky chain necklace, white hot pants and heeled ankle boots. Finishing off her look with fiery rouge and a messy bun made a perfect accompaniment to a flawless festival look. Take notes ladies...

Vanessa Hudgens (and Austin Butler) 

I'm pretty sure my love for Vanessa Hudgens is on a wildly creepy level, she is the Queen of boho for sure. I always get excited about her outfits and this was one of my favourites of the week. Fringed pieces are hard to pull off but Hudgens combined a sleeveless cardigan with a pencil skirt, adding colour through the intricate beading of her bralet. Her gypsy-style jewellery, bindis and oversized round sunglasses gave her a quirky edge and she showed her adventurous side by applying pink hair chalk, perfect. Boyfriend Austin Butler added the swoon factor with a messy ponytail, skinny jeans, Converse and a plaid skirt. BE MY BOYFRIEND!

Lana Del Ray
Many seem to be scared of colour, but I totally admired Lana Del Ray for this fabulous dress. Risqué but bursting with substance, the floral V-neck mini complimented her fair complexion and looked super comfy too. 

Kylie Jenner
This girl can do no wrong. Teaming up the classic festival accompaniments- a bum bag, sleeveless printed tee and shorts, she included extensively detailed jewellery and some killer brown knee high boots. I'm in love. 

Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner defines the word cute, and I admire her ability to adopt themes to her clothing. Her first outfit encapsulated boho chic with this white gypsy-esque crop top with elasticated trim and black and white patterned trousers with a slight flair for a 70's look. 

Is that you, Pocahontas? Kendall looks uber adorable with her plaits that accompany her moss green-holed tank, scored white hot pants and neckerchief. Fab!

Willow Smith
She might only be 13, but boy does this lady know how to dress. Losing those awful plaits, there was no whipping to be seen as Willow donned a 90's style fluorescent halter neck and stonewashed jeans with some jazzy eye-popping socks. Vintage! 

Solange Knowles
Comfort knows no bounds with this outfit. Solange radiates in this mustard yellow two-piece with gold sandals, perfectly contrasted to her mint green pastel nails. Ethereal or what?

Worst Dressed

Kelly Brook 
Caught taking a selfie, Kelly Brook made several fashion boo boos at Coachella this weekend. Her animal print dress was one of them, as the elasticated elements to the bottom of the piece would flatter no-one. Stealing Indiana Jones' hat, and combining them with tasselled shoes made for a disaster, and who ties a leather jacket around their waist?!

Bella Thorne

Although I dislike what her friend (on the right) is wearing more, I wasn't too keen on Bella Thorne's outfit. Ill-fitting with super ugly sandals, I think the top would have looked better with some leggings or jeans. 

Victoria Justice
Victoria Justice has to be one of the most plain-looking of the Coachella bunch, her nude boots seem redundant and although her intricate necklace is nice, her generic shorts and plain black top leave me a bit underwhelmed. 

Millie Mackintosh (and Professor Green) 
Sticking out like a sore thumb, and indeed making my eyes sore in the process, are newly weds Professor Green and his Made in Chelsea wife Millie Mackintosh. Taking her fashion from last year's Coachella, she donned an outdated floral headband and played it way too safe with nudes and pastels. Can you hear me snoring from here?
