Three days’ worth of Coachella kicked off the summer concert season and the requisite sartorial dilemmas that are bound to happen when you’re living out of a backpack and sloshing beer all over yourself in public. Given the sweltering heat, the celebs wore far too much, while everyone else wore far too little (yep, we’re talking pasties). Crochet and boho-inspired looks were popular among the ladies, and Dita Von Teese even ditched her signature corset for a fluttery belted dress from Christian Dior’s spring 2011 collection. Lauryn Hill paired a blue-and-white striped Jil Sander dress with black leather and Lucite, while Kanye opened wearing a blouse from Céline’s spring 2011 womenswear (he later switched into a red suit). Click through these looks and more in our roundup of the style choices on display.
