Coachella fashion on the field day one

April 16, 2011 |  1:41 pm


At the Coachella Valley Music & Arts festival Friday, the individual style quotient was as high as the mercury. Day 1 was as riveting as any runway show. There were lots of fringed Minnetonka boots, crochet tops, flower garlands and cutoffs for the girls, and ironic T-shirts (if they were wearing shirts at all), shorts and cool kicks for the guys.


Then, of course, there were the just-gotta-be-me folks of both genders -- the guy in pink neon furry boots with matching Speedo, and another in a full-on furry lion costume (a style choice that required dedication given heat that flirted with triple digits) to name just two. Their female counterparts played a neon-accented game of Native American dress up with kitschy war bonnets, ponchos, feathered earrings and tambourine-sized dreamcatchers.


On stage, Robyn rocked a Jeremy Scott pill print top, above left, and leggings from his fall Candy Flip collection, and Marina of Marina and the Diamonds came out in a Minnie Mouse-style hair bow and pink round sunglasses. In a flippy skirt and a jacket with a giant pink diamond on the back, she looked like the perfect festival cheerleader.

Also spotted in the crowd: Olympic snowboarder Shaun White, fashion designer Johan Lindeberg and Mulberry creative director Emma Hill. Rumor had it that Danny DeVito was nearby too.
