April 25th, 2011
This year marked my first Coachella experience. I decided to skip my annual trek to SXSW and instead attend the 80,000-capacity (and very dusty) music fest in California. For a girl who hates crowds and the heat (it was at 35-40 degrees all weekend), I knew this would be quite an undertaking. Each day, I thanked the gods for my wristband-access to the VIP area, where the drinks were still $10 a pop, but the shade and misting machines were free.

Friday: 35 degrees Immediately, I spotted Canadian actor Scott Speedman and Sophie (daughter of Gene) Simmons, though not together. Margarita in hand, I got the lay of the land in the VIP area and found myself surrounded by hot (in the literal and figurative senses) guys and gals—and lots of exposed skin.
Top Coachella trends:
French cut frayed denim shorts
Maxi dresses and skirts
