Let’s be honest, the bands at Coachella aren’t the only things that rock at the annual music festival. Every year, the fab fashion that descends on Indio draws almost as much attention as the billed headliners. And while the festival grounds play host to many a boho babe rocking fringe and flower crowns, some of the most fashion forward outfits pop up off the polo fields at the festival’s oh-so-exclusive parties. Whether sporting an oversized nose ring à la Kendall Jenner at the Lacoste Desert Pool Party or touches of fur—in 90-degree-weather!—as two daring gals did at Forever 21’s “Party in the Sky” fete, VIP guests proved that nothing’s off limits when it comes to festival fashion! But if your invitation to party alongside A-listers got lost in the mail, don’t worry—we have your behind-the-scenes peek at what stylish stars and trendsetters wore at Coachella’s hottest events!
