Coachella Ladies Part 2

Posted on April 17, 2012

Hit it, sweaty gals!

Emma Watson

Lose the bathmat and this could be cute.

 This is cute as it is.

Florence Welch

It’s funny. She’s finally at an event where her hippy-dippy prairie dresses are all the rage. She should have played against expectations and shown up in a tight micro-mini.


Katy Perry

It’s what you’d expect from Katy at Coachella. The underboob sweat must’ve been epic by the end of the day. And yes, we’re obsessed with ladysweat for some reason.



MEGA STANK-BOOT. We can smell it from here.


Lily Collins

Sweetie, the little flats with the bows? Not a good idea here. But the dress is cute.

 This is also pretty cute. Stop being so cute, Lily. The other ladies are going to jump you at the porta-potties.


Lindsay Lohan

 You can’t tell us she didn’t spend the day with sweat running down her ass crack.


Michelle Trachtenberg



Mischa Barton

Mischa, this is why you don’t have a career anymore. You’re supposed to dress like a crazy person at this event.


Paris Hilton

 We hate to say it, but that skirt’s pretty fabulous.

Oh God. Now we feel dirty.

  • Paris Hilton’s skirt is only fabulous in the moment with the wind catching it. In the next second it will be a skank rag.

    • Stubenville

      Or a tablecloth.

      • Spicytomato1

        Haha, can you imagine? She sits down and a swarm of hippie hipsters converges to start eating lunch on her skirt.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    Trachtenberg for the normacly-win. That’s what everyone should wear at Coachella.

    •  I liked her look on first glance, too.  But what about that weird seam at knee length where the pattern doesn’t match up?  That’s the sort of thing they would rip contestants for on Project Runway.  Odd to see the fabric patterns not matching at a seam on a dress that was presumably made out of conventional fabric and not on a 16-hour timeline.

      • DinaSews

        It kind of looks like it’s supposed to be a ruffle.

    • kimmeister

      Except for the bare sternum!  If it weren’t for the jean jacket, there would be nip slips everywhere.

  • Anathema_Device

    The girl eating watermelon behind Kesha is DEFINITELY getting a whiff of stank boot.

    • Watermelon Girl is my new favorite ever.

    • GenXcellent

      And she is wearing a fanny pack! Are those coming back? My 68 year old uncle will be psyched!

      • Call me Bee

        I am hoping she’s wearing it to be…”ironic”.  Cuz no one should wear them for real.  Ever again.  🙂

      • that it is. fanny packs are back.

        • I think they’re the accessory of choice for the truly wasted because they’re attached to your body (as opposed to a purse). If you’re gonna sample the brown acid, best to have a fanny pack.

    • I am fascinated with that watermelon. It appears to be levitating. 

      • YAELS

         This made me laugh hard. And I agree.

      • emcat8

        Thank god — I thought I was imagining that!

    • blumonky

      I was thinking the same thing.

    • I think it’s more a case of Stank-ERRETHANG.  Poor, unsuspecting bystanders.

    • BeeBeauNYC

       And the woman to Ke$ha’s right (though cut mostly out of the pic) looks like Alanis Morrisette!

    • Ha ha, I thought that too. I love the people in the background. The girl in the hat behind Mischa is wearing my favorite outfit of all the pictures.

  • You boys should feel dirty, going on and on about lady sweat.  My stars!!

  • Kyle Crawford

    Is there a rule / theme at this love in that you MUST wear something that Cher did before 1968 ??   just make it go away… ( Kyle is old  )

  • Who is Florence Welch’s friend?  I’d like to know more about her.  Look at those boots (even filled with sweat)!

  • TieDye64

    My favorite is the chick behind Florence Welch. She’s wearing a yeti! And the boots?! Rick James would be proud. 

    • KellyStallard

      She appears to be insulating Florence from Katy Perry, who seems to be trailing just behind. Katy’s picture has the unknown yeti-wearer in the frame. I like all the purple hair!

    • Matt Bailer

       I was thinking that might be Azealia Banks? 

      • 2ndhandchic

         Yes! I saw pictures of her there and she has the same pink/purple hair. I love her.

      • It is! And her Coachella set was all kinds of awesome. I am a new fan.

  • hexiadetrix

    Stank-boot, maybe, but closed shoes with a solid toecap are a must at festivals unless you want to end up with mangled, filthy feet. Unless you spend all your time in the VIP area, in which case I guess you’d dress like Paris Hilton. 

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    I like Emma in the night time shot – the bath mat jacket is weird, but the total look is Hollywood something or another at Coachella” which is the point.  Ke$ha… OMG, girl you just made my day!!  If you are out in the world in shorts looking like that, I can go out too knowing that at the very least I look about a million times better than that!!  Rock on, ladies…

  • crash1212

    Wicked boots on the girl behind Florence Welch. Also, those gigantic black and white pillow monsters behind Emma and and Lily are must haves…any idea who did them?  Well, checked out Mulberry – – and they do many large things…like melting ice cream bars. WANT!

  • Emma Watson’s first photo is how one should do boots in the desert.

  • JanieS

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen Florench Welch looks so cheerful. It suits her.

    • And she also looks her age! Not like an old lady. And I want to know about that fringy business hanging behind Ke$ha. 

    • Celandine1

      She needs to hire new hair and makeup people for red carpet events or take some lessons for when she is DYI. Here she is all natural and looks fresh, happy, and her actual age!

  • Terence Ng

    PLEASE. Everyone, as any Futurama fan will tell you, the correct term is “boot feet” and “Sweaty Boot Rash”. And there’s a lot of it going around, clearly.

  • sarahofalessergod

    This event should really be titled “Coachella: Stank, Sweat, and Starlets”.

  • MilaXX

    Surprisingly only minor quibbles once again. Mine you, I’m cutting people loads of slack because based solely on appropriateness to the event.
    Emma needs to lose the bathmat.
    Flo’s bag is a bit too Sunday on Martha’s Vineyard. BTW not only do I dig the outfit, the lady with the purple hair and metal boots behind her is cracking me up.
    Lili’s first look needs to loose the cute bow flats, but the 2nd is cute.
    Katy looks like she’s trying too hard to be down with the scene.
    The rest work. After all what’s an outdoor music festival without a little dirt and body odor?

    • If ever Flo needed a purse with a cross-body strap, this is the time. Seriously. 

    • Stefanos Mantyla

       Agreed! Part 1 of this event of which I never heard… that BLEW! Not one acceptable entry out of the lot.

      This, on the other hand, is a saving grace. I would say Emma W. won this round with her second look, with Lili C. and Michelle T. as close seconds. I thought Katy P. did surprisingly well this time, too. At least the dress goes with the hair, in my opinion. I do not even mind the shoes, which I would normally hate. So she gets “most improved”.

  • I’m pretty sure that’s Azealia Banks behind Florence!

  • I wish Florence Welch would change her hair color…

  • Spicytomato1

    How many wardrobe changes does a celeb need at this thing? Who does that?

    •  Coachella is a three-day, two weekend event (last weekend and this weekend).  If someone wanted to catch all the acts, they’d be there on multiple days.

      • Spicytomato1

        Ok, gotcha, that makes sense. I don’t know why I was under the impression that all these shots were taken on a single day. 

        • Plus there’s a lot of sponsored events and parties that take place at nighttime, so you would expect to go back to your tent or hotel and change out of your soiled clothes to attend, like most normal people do in everyday life too.

  • Florence should smile more, she looks cute and happy. Also, I love Paris’ skirt, but now I want to stick my head in the toilet and flush repeatedly..

  • I’ll be honest: I’m not feeling the Lily Collins second picture. Looks way too frumpy for a girl her age with that baggy jacket and heavy hair.

    And Emma Watson is the cutest thing ever in that floppy hat. Rock it, girl.

    • Spicytomato1

      Emma is cute but I have to assume these shots were taken early. That much makeup had to start melting, big time, as the day wore on.

    • kimmeister

      I am all about floppy hats, Emma is making me proud!

  • destronomics

    We get it. Girls are gross because they sweat like every human being in the world does when exposed to sun for a duration of time. Eww, girls, sweating like people. etc. 

    • Ali

       I don’t think it’s “ew, girls are sweating,” but “ew, look at those people (who happen to be girls) sweating grossly because they are inappropriately dressed for the weather.”

      This isn’t just a Coachella thing – TLo’s ragged on other stars in LA for their wacky weather-clothing hijinks as well.

      • destronomics

        They’re cop-ing to the ladysweat fixation themselves, dude. And yeah, fashion isn’t a stranger to double standard, but there’s one way of acknowledging that that isn’t, you know, isn’t as crass as this. And the constant fixation of where the sweat is, is kind of ugly too.

        • Denny Li

          I agree. I felt like I was listening in on mean girls’ gossip reading the captions. I enjoy T&L snark, but the tone on this was disquieting.

  • Judy_J

    I believe that is the first photo I’ve ever seen of Florence Welch where she looks her age and not like a 40 year old woman.  I did a double take when I saw the boots on the gal she’s holding hands with.  She sure is toting a lot of hardware.

    • Sam

       I was just going to comment this about Florence actually looking her age! She should pull her hair back and smile more often!

    • That’s Azealia Banks lol- she performed earlier; did a pretty good job too. 

  • TheOriginalLulu

    She’s at a music festival, but Paris Hilton still carries herself like it’s all about her. She’s too funny.
    Mischa Barton is dressed perfectly, complete with plastic cup of warm beer.

    • kimmeister

      I can’t believe that’s Mischa Barton.  Wouldn’t have been able to pick her out in a lineup!

  • MsMajestyk

    LiLo’s boots…ugh.  They look like bowling shoes with bricks attached.

    Kesha’t pubic bone length shorts aren’t flattering and don’t look comfortable at all.  Mischa’s have a hem, albeit a small one, and are more flattering.  Yes, she has long legs, but still.

    Michelle, Emma and the girl with the purple hair look awesome.

  • Even the girl in the background of the Kesha picture is all  “she just made my watermelon taste like shit”. 

  • Liz

    I hope they all have little bottles of baby powder in their Native American inspired fringed bags.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    I’m lovin the beefcakes behind Katy Perry! I blame this on the Ryan Gosling post from earlier today.

  • Lindsay Lohan and Katy Perry actually look pretty fab. What has this world come to.

  • MK03

    Emma Watson, showing us how it’s done.

  • What I want to know is, what are those “Mulberry” balloon/pillow things behind Emma Watson and Lily Collins? They are really cute, and I want one.

    • cmb92191

      So do I.   I think if we all stood near them, we would all look fabulous.

      • bellafigura1

        Emma Watson is carrying a Mulberry cross-body, so I guess it’s promo HQ at the event.

  • I find it amusing that TLo thinks Lindsay Lohan was at Coachella during the day.  She (probably) doesn’t roll out of bed til 5.  🙂

  • Paris’ skirt is fabulous. Now I feel all dirty. Also, are you sure that’s Mischa Barton? 

    • sweetestsith

       I can’t help it, I secretly like Paris. She’s just so utterly…her. I totally want her skirt, and don’t feel dirty about it. 😛

  • emcat8

    Am I weird because I like the bathmat? 

  • Love Katy’s creepers, and that Florence has found a new friend!

  • Call me Bee

    I’ve never heard of this particular festival, but these photos are priceless!  What’s with the short-shorts or short skirts, or even long skirts,  and booties?  It’s just silly.  And yes–stanky.  I hope I don’t see (or smell) any of those at our own Summerfest later this summer….

  • lilazander

    I wish Lohan stayed at home for an event, or two, or better yet for a couple of months for hell’s sake. A Who is Mischa Barton these days anyway?

  • Why is Paris Hilton stuck in 2004?

  • guest2visits

    You can see at what point on Lindsay’s outfit the bad-angel just kicked good-angel’s ass and threw her from a moving vehicle.

  • Isn’t Paris, like, 35 at this point? Ie, isn’t she a little old to be at Coachella? (The last time I was at a similar event I think I was 30 max, and I felt like a grandma.)

    • boweryboy

      Nah, not really.  I’m 42 and I love going to live shows of music artists I’m into.

      I’m not discouraged by all the younger people around me who are enjoying the same music I do. 

      I mean, I’m just there for the music – not to try to be young or hip or cool.

      • Roman000

         Well that’s the thing, most of these celebs are not at Coachella for the music; they’re there for attention/pics. And with Paris practically irrelevant, she needs all the attention she can muster. 🙂

      • I still go to shows too of course – it’s just the whole ‘music festival’ thing that I can’t do anymore. Mostly, I can’t deal with being around entitled 22-year-old “hippies.”

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    thats the first picture i’ve ever seen of florence welch where i’ve actually believed she is younger than i am. & she looks so nice there! so does her friend! wouldnt the world be better if we all dressed kind of like a cross between the two of them! anyway. the dour does not always work on a person. boy, once FW moves away from it, all kinds of springtime seems to happen.

    in other news, there were ten billion rock festivals after woodstock–in fact, way many more were after than were before & it, itself, was only one [i dont count the anniversary specials]. whycome is it that now, almost half a century after the fact, almost everybody who was born too late has decided, as if a solid voting bloc, that woodstock-pastiche is the only way to go when dressing for these things? dont they realize that the creators & participants of the original would be appalled at the lack of originality of all these currentcomers? or doesnt it matter? & if not, why isnt that weird? to anyone else, i mean.

  • what is up with all the gumboots? did these coachella newbies think they were going to be wading through a lot of mud over the weekend? this isn’t glastonbury, people! (although I did hear that there was a chance of rain? if so, pardon my rage).

  • Who’s the purple-haired chick in the Kiss boots?  Official greeter?

    • That’s Azealia Banks.  She’s a rapper.  She’s pretty interesting.  T Lo! You could have looked at her outfits, too! I don’t know what the breakdown there was like, but it’d be nice to see a few POC’s looked at too! 

      • holdmewhileimnaked

        maybe it’s cos serious white people usually look a whole lot sillier.

        then again, that could just be my take. perhaps cos in my life i have had many a variation on every piece AB is wearing, including hair color. come to think of it, same could be said for FW. so my case may be rested if less than airtight, if you will.

        edited to add:
        except the denim shorts. oh my never!

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    Kesha’s tucking skills are questionable.

  • was there a sign somewhere that said “only people dressed they way they think hippy stereotypes dress allowed”? florence welch is the only one it looks natural on. as a onetime frequenter of weekend+ long music fests, all these people look entirely to put together. i don’t know why i should expect a celebrity to look less coordinated, but i am disappoint. 

  • harlowish

    KESHA!  Girl, those are NOT YOUR SHORTS.  Her body is perfectly fine, but that’s just such a monstrously unflattering way to dress it.

    I like to see that Katy Perry has ditched the blue hair, even if it turns out to be only temporarily.

  • Toto Maya

     Why, oh why did I read this while eating a tuna sandwich?

  • spooki C

    Thank you for actually dressing nicely and not like you dumpster dived for your outfit, Michelle. 

  • Today’s ladies were much more fab than yesterday’s (even Paris). I still do NOT understand the shoe choices. Particularly Ke$ha and Lily’s. Ke$ha’s don’t even LOOK comfortable. And there’s nothing sweatier than rubber boots. Emma’s first brown boots are the only boots I can imagine wearing.

  • PeaceBang

    You did not just say that about LiLo. LOL and *puke*

  • quiltrx

    Florence looks SO cute!  Fresh-faced and happy.  See, so much better without the heavy make-up.

    Emma looks great, and I love Lily’s dress.  I like the print of Michelle’s (looks like way too much cleavage, though), and Paris’ bias-cut skirt is really great.

  • paris hilton actually looks pretty good in my opinion
    Lilo: way to chose an awful picture, and I dont mind the pants I actually heard it was pretty cold at Coachella so no was really ready for the weather hence the confusing large jackets around sometimes.

  • RzYoung

    coachella looks like my idea of pure hell

  • I don’t get it. Is Coachella like Woodstock for the rich, hip crowd? 

  • Emma’s second outfit FTW. I’m digging Paris’s skirt too, even though she’s wearing it.

  • bluefish

    Emma Watson’s second look FTW.  She’s so beautiful, that one. 

  • nancylee61

    Lohan – why is she even here if she is supposed to be avoiding drinking/drugs?? Oh, I get it, she doesn’t care. This girl is her own worst enemy. Her clothes are the least of her troubles. It makes me sad, I loved her movies when she was young.

  • ccm800

    Lily looks like she has her little boots on backwards at this angle. Ke$ha needs to just go ahead and focus on her porn career. 

  • amanda crow

    It would really help if these outfits were evaluated considering the truth about the weather, which was that it barely topped 80 degrees.

  • Timea Everdeen

    Kary Perry’s boobs are seriously unpleasant to look at. My eyes are burning…
