What do flower crowns, bronzed celebrity bodies, strong cocktails, and day-to-night concerts all have in common? They are the key ingredients of Coachella. I journeyed out to Indio this past weekend for the first installment of the parties and here is what went down.
The first stop was the Victoria’s Secret Angel Oasis, a sprawling estate that hosted the VS Angels and served as the ultimate party pad. I sat for an intimate brunch provided by TikiFish with the Angels, many of them clad in bralettes from the Sexy Little Things Collection (I am a big fan of these pieces!).
And we even celebrated the birthdays of Alessandra Ambrosio and Josephine Skriver with two beautiful birthday cakes! Post celebration, I enjoyed getting sexy waves compliments of The Beach Waver and eye bling from Tarte before Bebe Rexha took the stage for a private concert. As I was leaving, I made sure to pick-up my personalized Levi’s denim jacket with my name and angel wings.
Meanwhile, over at the Lucky Lounge Presents: Desert Jam at the Inglewood Inn, Noah Cyrus rocked the party with her hit “Make Me Cry.” Guests such as Evan Ross, Ashlee Simpson-Ross, and Sia enjoyed CORE water, and Simpson-Ross even made a stop at the Splat Hair Dye both for hair chalking. Personally, I opted for the pink and purple chalk on my braids. When in Coachella……
The Colony Palms hotel was the perfect location for the third annual POPSUGAR Cabana Club, which featured a performance by Daya and a gourmet poke bar for guests. Earlier in the day, Emily Current, Merritt Elliott, and Clare Vivier hosted a brunch with the CFDA which was attended by stylish starlets Victoria Justice, Peyton List, and Olivia Culpo.
And this was the first time a weed sponsor, weedmaps, legally had some skin in the Coachella party game. Think a service for the green which features dispensaries, doctors, and deliveries. And the stony soiree was decorated with bowls of pot, an indica and sativa gifting suite, and a desk to sign up for medical marijuana licenses. A$AP Rocky brought rumored girlfriend Kendall Jenner to the pot party, although it seems that Jenner did not toke.
Bootsy Bellows brought their pop up club to the desert for the PacSun pool party with a special performance by Lil Yachty. As guests such as Katy Perry, Nick Jonas, and Ryan Phillippe listened to LI perform his hits including “1 Night,” Hailey Baldwin exhibited model behavior having her shoe tied by New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Baldwin flirtatiously extended her foot to an obliging Beckham Jr who was glad to lend a helping hand. And a casually clad Perry was vaping during Lil Yachty’s performance. Perry’s entrance came shortly after rumored beau Phillippe departed the party. Hmmm.
Hannah Bronfman played an upbeat DJ set for festival goers on Saturday at the American Express Platinum House at The Parker Palm Springs before stopping for photos with friends Rocky Barnes and Bryanboy. Teen star, Peyton List stopped by with her brother and was excited to nosh on the delicious treats – tacos, popsicles, and vegetable skewers. Yummy!
Hailee Steinfeld stopped by the Republic Records x sbe’s Hyde Away presented by Hudson suite with her man and her parents to pick up select items from the Hudson Jeans festival collection including denim shorts, jeans and jackets. She was even photographed in the same Hudson bomber as Ashley Tisdale and Sophie Simmons. That was one popular fashion item!
And what Coachella would be complete without a Vanessa Hudgens sighting? Well, she was having a blast at the Le Meridien #MarriottxCoachella tent, sipping some bubbly with her sister. And Emma Roberts got down with the Tribute Portfolio while spending the weekend with fiancé Evan Peters.
A super-fun weekend had by all. What celebrity were you most excited to see at Coachella? We want to know. Comment below!
