Coachella 2016: Ease Your FOMO With The Stars’ Best Insta-Snaps

By Jessica Vince

We hope you’re prepared for Instagram to be packed to the rafters with peace-out plaits, denim cut-offs and garland headbands galore. Because the 2016 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is here and unless you bagged a ticket for the two-weekend event, you’ll be relying on snaps from the stars to see all the jealousy-inducing revelry.

Lucky for you, the hoards of famous festival-goers haven’t wasted any time sharing the good times. Thanks to the ‘gram, we know Poppy Delevingne and Emily Ratajkowski arrived via helicopter, despite gnarly winds, while Zoe Kravitz drove into the Californian desert alongside dad Lenny. Paris Hilton, Coachella’s self-appointed ambassadress-in-chief, kicked off the fun by sharing a catalogue of her festie gear, giving us a taster of what she’s got up her wafty kaftan sleeve this year…

So let’s talk trends. Denim cut-offs are definitely still a thing as seen on Suki Waterhouse, Hailey Baldwin and Millie Mackintosh, but this year, comfy trainers are the footwear of choice. The style set are also opting for lacy underwear-inspired outfits a la Kendall Jenner and Chiara Ferragni, dressed down by chunky biker boots. And, of course, it’s all about off-the-shoulder everything. Straps are so 2015.

As for accessories, a humble bandana is the new must-have amongst celebrity concertgoers, whether used as a headscarf, worn around the neck for a Western-inspired spin or providing sand protection when donned across the face as a half-mask. 

Coachella also appears to be the time to showcase a new ‘do — Taylor Swift debuted her bleach blonde bob spawning the hashtag #bleachella, Emma Roberts dyed her mane moments before arriving and Kylie Jenner is giving us summer hair goals with her constantly-changing rainbow locks. And lest we forget Vanessa Hudgens, unofficial queen of the desert, who posted a snap of her $190 manicure.

So pull on some swishy fringing, sit back with a cocktail (or, let’s be honest, a cup of tea) and enjoy the show as we keep the gallery above updated with all the latest Insta-action. Trust us: it’s the next best thing to actually being there.
