The Best And The Worst Of Coachella 2018 Celebrity Festie Outfits
Alan Paone

So, if your social media feeds and Instagram Explore pages aren’t filled with this year’s Coachella outfits, you may be living under a rock.

In my heavy habit of procrastinating, I’ve been scrolling through pages and pages of various festival outfits and having a love/hate relationship with them. Some have me wanting the links to their clothing, and some have me wanting to redress them and thinking that they don’t deserve to be at Coachella with so many fashion icons and outfit opportunities.

Being so, I’d like to share my favorites and worsts of the celebrities who attended this year’s Coachella. And in the spirit of always saving the bests for last, I’ll start up with some of my least favorites.


1. Rihanna

Although it physically PAINS me to put her in this category, one of her outfits for the first Coachella weekend was in one word: horrendous. Although I’ve written in my spring trends article that monochromatic outfits are in, this outfit was a deafening monotonic song that I, in no way, wanted to listen to. This seems harsh, but c’mon, bad girl Riri can do SO much better! I strongly believe in the saying, “it’s ugly until Rihanna says it’s not”, but you can’t make a brown paper bag cute.

2. Bella Hadid

Once again, disappointment sets in with this outfit. Although it’s not the worst outfit, it is underwhelming, especially for a Hadid sister. I always see Bella Hadid walking the streets in some stellar streetwear and other clothing items, so I had high expectations for her outfit at Coachella. But alas, all we got was a subpar outfit that anyone could have put together. Dressed in a basic white crop top, jean shorts, white belt, white Nikes and scrunched socks (not pictured) and accessorized with a white scrunchy, sunglasses, and body chain, this outfit was neither astonishing nor Coachella-themed.

3. Nicki Minaj

Known for her outrageous outfits in her beginning years, Nicki Minaj always dresses to turn heads. In this instance, however, she turned heads away, rather than towards her. Like I said before, her early years were filled with shock-value styles, but lately, her style has gone to a minimalistic sophistication that I’ve come to love. However, this outfit did not follow the trend and she somewhat reverted back to her old ways. I’m always down for some sexy animal print, especially for festivals, but I think she wore one-too-many different animals, and the skins just don’t sync.

4. Justin Bieber

Also known for his iconic street styles, Justin went a different route at Coachella this year with more of a beach-boy vibe. Although I think his beachy decision somewhat embodies that of the festival, again, I just think his outfit could have been so much better. Justin showed up to Coachella with his bleached hair kept out of his face by a bandana paired with a tropical shirt and shorts suit, accompanied by a pair of white sneakers. Although he was seen prancing around enjoying his loose-fitting fit, I expected more from such a fashion icon.


1. Also Rihanna

So, I know I tore her outfit apart on the “worst” list, but she also had a stunning outfit for one of the other days. Buckle up, buttercup, because her outfit was shining bright like a diamond. In an all-white outfit accented with belts all up and down her pants, she lived up to her fashion reputation. On top, she wore a jean jacket which she tied up to see her signature ribcage wing-tattoo. She then accessorized with a white mini-purse and icy-blue eyeshadow to give her monochrome outfit a colorful touch.

2. Camila Coelho

Not quite as famous as other celebrities I’ve reviewed, but I just had to put her on the “best” list. As a fashion connoisseur, and a widely-followed YouTuber, she was destined to have one of my favorite outfits at Coachella. She and her outfit embodied everything about Coachella: accessories, sparkles, and an Indie vibe. It was basic, yet beautiful. With a plain black crop top, a sequin skirt, and silver-tipped cowboy boots, she made sure she was comfortable, yet stylish to dance the whole night away. Along with the outfit she accessorized her hair with metal accents to match her over-the-top necklace, rings and topped it off with geometric shades.

3. Millie Bobby Brown

I may be biased because I love Stranger Things as well as her everyday non-Coachella outfits, but she rocked her first big festival. Like Camila Coelho, Millie kept up with the hair accessories and (basically) pierced her French braids with some silver hoops. Along with that she had a rainbow sequined cardigan to match her pastel pants and scrunched tube top. Practical, cute, and comfy styles are the way to go for festivals.

4. Vanessa Hudgens

If you’re surprised by this, then you must not know that Vanessa Hudgens is the queen of Coachella. For the past four years, she has blessed us with Boho-Indie outfits that put all other outfits to shame. This year she struck us with classic elegance with her floral-printed deep-V dress, accessorized with an abundance of bracelets, necklaces, rings and a body chain. All of which are part of her signature styles.

As a summary of the worst/best outfits of this year’s Coachella, I’ve come up with some do’s and don’t’s:


Wear something comfortable so you can dance until the break of dawn

Make a statement – it’s Coachella!

You can never have too many accessories

Have glitter be your favorite color


Be understated, turn heads!

Overdress/overcompensate – be comfy, casual, cute

Epic Activewear Deals Every Leggings-Lover Needs To Know About From Nordstrom's Biggest Sale

Wearing my pleather Alo leggings till someone physically removes them from my body.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not an athletic person, at all. Since junior high school, I've been happily cheering my friends on at their football games and soccer matches from the sidelines as long as I could go home to my yoga mat and spend Sunday mornings at Pilates with my mom's friends.

Weekends are often spent in my casual wear, from the second I throw them on for morning meditation through running errands and evening walks. No, I won't be running a marathon or joining my friend's volleyball league anytime soon.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

I've been an athlete my entire life. I love movement and I've been jumping, kicking, swimming, dancing, throwing, you name it since I was in diapers. I'm also pretty competitive and probably went through a few sore loser phases. What can I say? I like to win, and losing can sometimes feel like I've failed. Especially, when your competitor is your best friend or someone that you worked all year long to defeat.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.
