CelebrityHow Dita Does Coachella

Dita Von Teese, queen of burlesque and hot retro style, took in the sights and sounds of this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Dita spent the three-day event looking flawless in a variety of outfits that adapted retro glamour for life under a sunny desert sky.

(Left): I am in love with Dita’s nautical-style, high-waisted trousers. Her updo is also rockin’, managing a put-together look that is also casual.

 

(Above): From the mary jane wedges to the layers of bangles, this is Dita’s awesome version of boho beauty. I love all the earthy tones on that tropical print dress!


(Above): Ladylike charm is what it’s all about in this look. Soft satin ruffles, that polished hat and a pretty chain purse keep Dita looking elegant. Psssst, recognize that lovely lady with her? Yep, it’s Katy Perry looking day-glo pretty.

What was your favorite Dita look?

FashionDJ Mia Moretti at Coachella!!!

<!–Our favorite DJ MIA MORETTI has been super busy and is probably still recovering from Coachella, where she played up a storm. Mia just sent me these pics of her at Coachella keeping the music going on and off the festival. 

On the left is Mia DJing at the Indioasis Music Lounge, where she played along side Macy Gray and Sky Ferreira among many others!

Mia is not only a music guru, but a fashionista of the highest kind! I love how Mia stayed LA glamorous while mixing it all up. Mia paired an oversized bright rose red hat with a short and loose cropped top. The tropical printed cut offs keep this outfit funky and the red lipstick matches the bright headband to finish it off. 

Below is Mia in a sweet printed tee with Danny Masterson at the Diesel Artist Brunch!

Mia also played at the Music Loves Fashion event with the electric violinist Caitlin Moe! Mia and Caitlin just did a tour together, and I don’t doubt they blew up this party.

 

And here are some other pics of Mia out and about. First is Mia at the Festival captured by photographer Mark the Cobrasnake. I like her light and loose top with the printed skirt and leather handbag

Below is Mia in a custom Jeremy Scott “Angel Toga” at the Jeremy Scott X Adidas Coachella After-Party.

<!–Hello LuLu Lovers!

This year, the fashion at Coachella was all over the map, as always. You see, desert chic can go oh so many ways.

Right off the bat, I noticed that there was a heavy 60′s/70′s vintage influence. Lots of psychedelic prints and muted colors, vintage denim shorts and white linen shirts tied around the waist.  If I could have piled all the leather strappy sandals together I think we could have reached the moon.

As for accessories, vintage metals, long dangly earrings, LOTS of feathers, and of course the infamous head band — although that trend is phasing out compared to years past!

As for the festival … Saturday morning, I woke up and said to myself, “Are we really going back again?” Friday was cool but just so overwhelming. I think it took me 3 hours just to get used to being around 60,000 people!

 


Friday’s highlight was, surprisingly, Jay-Z (even Beyonce stopped by for a duet), but I also caught Yeasayer (who had one of my favorite albums this year), Them Crooked Ventures, Grizzly Bear, LCD Soudsystem, Imogen Heap, Vampire Weekend and Fever Ray.


Luckily, Saturday was much more enjoyable than Friday, due to the better line-up, in my opinion. We first made a stop at the Anthem Magazine party for some amazing views, good music and a delicious lunch. Even scored some new flip flops and bathing suits from DC!

Next it was off to day 2 of the festival. Muse was today’s big hit, but I was equally excited to catch the interweb sensation Die Antwoord as well as Z-trip, Gossip, Hot Chip and Major Lazer. By the end of the night, my feet were getting ready to detach themselves and head on home without me … but fashion is painful, right? (Especially when you have a new pair of Tory Burch sandals that you didn’t break in yet.)


Day 3, we took a much-needed break laying by the pool before heading back to the fields. On today’s list was Spoon, Florence and the Machine, Glitch Mob, Phoenix, Miike Snow and Gorillaz.


Now it’s back to reality, but looking back, it was quite an amazing 3 days of celebrating music! You kind of need a 3-day vacation afterward to just decompress from it all!


Till again!
