The Good, the Bad, and the Strange at the 2014 Coachella Festival

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Coachella, it’s that it is as much about fashion as it is about music. The festival has become quite the sartorial playground for celebrities, models, and fashionistas from all over the world.

This year, we’ve seen an array of maxi dresses, denim cutoffs, fedora hats, statement shirts, eclectic prints, sunnies, flower crowns, flat sandals, sneakers, cowboy boots, flesh-baring outfits, and even bindis.

Some of our favorite stylish stars, such as Camilla Belle, Kate Bosworth, and Coachella regulars Alessandra Ambrosio and Vanessa Hudgens, flaunted their festival fashion as they frolicked in the desert and basked in the California sun. Take a look at what they wore during the first weekend of Coachella:

Ashley Greene was spotted wearing a blush-colored tank dress from Free People, which features crochet cutout details, a low back, and a hi-low hem. She styled it with a black shoulder bag, dark sunglasses, and a pair of Western-style ankle boots from Isabel Marant.
