  • Festival Fashion: Alexa Chung at Coachella

    Feeling a bit overexposed in your denim hotpants? Make like festival regular Alexa Chung and just add on a prim printed blouse. Turned up sleeves will keep things cool and casual.

  • Festival Fashion: Harley Viera-Newton at Coachella

    We love Harley Viera-Newton's kooky take on this season's tropical print trend: steering clear of the usual flamingos and palm trees, the socialite opted for a punchy pineapple print instead.

  • Festival Fashion: Leandra Medine at Coachella

    Fashion blogger Leandra Medine channelled her super power into her festival wardrobe. The self-confessed queen of layering piled on the jewellery to update her denim cutoffs and simple black vest.

  • Festival Fashion: Riley Keough at Coachella

    Got a summer dress you've worn to death and then some? Just fling on a slouchy jumper in a contrasting colour like actress Riley Keough, then hey presto! You've got a whole new festival look.

  • Festival Fashion: Kate Bosworth at Coachella

    Kate Bosworth has got the festival wardrobe down to a tee here - and she knows it: the actress is wearing pieces from her upcoming collection with Topshop. We'll take the lot, thanks.

  • Festival Fashion: Solange Knowles at Coachella

    Eye-popping colour is a Solange Knowles signature, and the singer and DJ did not disappoint at Coachella. Also worth noting are her on-trend block heel sandals - flip-flops just wouldn't have cut it with this look.

  • Festival Fashion: Trese San Wong at Coachella

    All-in-ones can be tricky at festivals (one word: portaloos!), but this chic printed jumpsuit worn by model Trese San Wong would be worth any sartorial difficulties.

  • Festival Fashion: Ashley Madekwe at Coachella

    Revenge actress Ashley Madekwe's cream crochet dress absolutely speaks of summertime fun, but with that pale colour in mind, it might be best to save this look for one-day festivals only.

  • Festival Fashion: AnnaSophia Robb at Coachella

    Carrie Diaries star AnnaSophia Robb took her colourful striped dress from beach to boho with kooky floral sunglasses and a fresh flower hair garland.

  • Festival Fashion: Katy Perry at Coachella

    California girl Katy Perry certainly knows how to dress for the heat of Coachella: the singer donned a shortened version of Dolce & Gabbana's spring/summer 2013 collection skirt along with a matching bustier top and chunky white platforms.

  • Festival Fashion: Alessandra Ambrosio at Coachella

    A great way to bring boho styling bang up to date, combine the same shade of neon bright colour à la model Alessandra Ambrosioto create a statement look at sunset.

  • Festival Fashion: Jessie Ware at Coachella

    A midriff-baring top may seem like a scary prospect but singer Jessie Ware has got it spot on here: the trick is to show off the area just under your empire line - the smallest part of the waist. Plus, her bold mis-matched prints only help to distract.
