Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Yaaas, you didn't think we'd forgotten about Coachella, did you? Nooo, of course we didn't! We recruited our old pal Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit to comment on some of the looks from the festival because, as we know, #everybodyaintable. Peep below to see what you may have missed in Indio.

Here at MTV Style we get really excited when the worlds of music and fashion meet, so Coachella is like a homecoming of sorts, where everyone tries a little harder and flaunts their style, whether they’re turning up their usual look or testing out some riskier #FASHUN. With a star-studded lineup and killer surprise guest list, it’s safe to say that this year Coachella had some of its most eye-catching moments yet—and this was only Weekend One.

KATY PERRY

Katy Perry didn’t perform but she was (easily) spotted around the festival all weekend long—who could miss her with that new slime-green hair? Obv, Katy didn’t wear a flower crown; she already had a lot going on in the hair department. Katy showed that her green 'do is actually more versatile than you’d think, pairing it with a very ladylike black-and-white ensemble and a turquoise pencil skirt and matching crop top.

We're not the only ones feeling the spring fever vibes around here, you guys. Leave it to Rita Ora to get a major head start on some KEY warm weather trends this month, from rocking that old-meets-new version of the gladiator boot to strutting her stuff in a basketball jersey dress. Now the pop star's bringing yet another unexpected piece smack dab onto everyone's radar: the clear jacket. We spotted the singer traipsing around the Coachella festival grounds several weeks ago, repping her trademark tomboy style (and uh, showing off her rock hard abs) in a graphic Carven skirt, fresh white Supergas, a HUF hat, and, the piece de resistance, her see-through moto jacket. Remember when Lady Gaga hopped on the transparent clothing fad early in her plastic frock at the 2010 EMA?! Well, Rita's version definitely a more wearable option for everyone who isn't brave enough to wear nipple stickers IRL. In other words, most of us...?

Unless you happen to be one of those lucky people who never gets hot and sweaty (seriously though, what's their sercret?!), looking cute at a festival like Coachella is a tough feat to pull off. We're talking about a situation where you're sitting outside all day under the beating sun, surrounded by thousands of pushing people all elbowing to see the same band you want to...not exactly a picture-perfect moment. But hey, it IS possible, and some of our MTV Style favorites are here to prove it. It seemed like everyone and their mother hit Indio for weekend 1 of the fest, and over the course of 72 hours, some key trends emerged. Whether it's stars like Solange sporting ladylike dresses, Karen O in crazy prints, K.Stew in her trademark snapback, or Vanessa Hudgens in a flower crown (yep, they're still around), these musicians and their famous fans manage to keep cool without sacrificing style. See how they did it below!

LADYLIKE DRESSING

Alright, so we all know that Miss Solange Knowles is the reigning queen of festival dressing. Rather than stick with lazy girl options like ripped denim and cropped tops, she cranks up the quirk in retro originals like printed suits and button-ups. She rocked this look hard at SXSW, but this weekend the singer gave her signature style a ladylike spin in a lemon-print sleeveless frock and matching yellow sandals. Not that she would ever need to, but Katy Perry also proved her pinup status at the Lacoste party decked out in a Dolce & Gabbana skirt and bra set (also the same one Iggy Azalea wore in her "Work" music video). Then there's Jessie Ware, rounding out the trio in a red and white striped crop top and printed tea length skirt. Whereas Solange and Katy opted for heels, Jessie shed her shoes to go barefoot during her performance. She topped off her look with some raver pigtail buns, and somehow, we love her even more than before.

Whether you're going to weekend one or weekend two, there's no denying that Coachella is upon us. That's right, the yearly celebration of bandeau tops, headbands, and...wait, it's about the music? Oh right, we forgot, sorry. Sometimes it can feel like our favorite festivals get a little lost amid all the celeb sightings and street style snaps, but we are a style blog after all and honey, we know you want to look good no matter what. In the true spirit of Coachella, we decided to build a series of looks inspired by some of our favorite bands playing the fest. After all, it's not next-level nerdy (like wearing a band's t-shirt to their show *collar tug*) to dress thematically, right?!

KURT VILE AND THE VIOLATORS

I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say that Wakin' On a Pretty Daze is one of the best albums of the year. If you're not familiar with Philly longhair Kurt Vile, familiarize yourself right quick because your life will never be the same. The album is filled with sweeping, chilled out guitar jams that make us feel as warm and fuzzy as a springtime crush, and we just know that seeing Vile play the songs live in the desert will be a moment worth swooning over. For enjoying some Vile in style, you'll want to make sure you have your vibes right. The Summer Feeling Dress ($88.00) from Nasty Gal is a way to wear denim while still feeling breezy, and paired with Marais' field boot ($92.50) you'll be ready for whatever adventurous path the night should take. Of course if we're talking about vibes you need to have your crystals on lock, and this raw rose quartz necklace ($38.00) from Etsy will protect you against anyone or anything that should try and send a bummer your way. Accessories should be kept to a minimum in the hot summer sun, so a simple pink seed bead bracelet ($9.99) from Madewell and a red accented threaded belt ($6.80) will provide a pop of color to keep you from blending in too much with the sky and the earth. Finally, some sunnies, like the SUPER Lucia Puma Sunglasses ($269.00) and a simple cross body bag--so your hands are free to hold tight to whoever makes you feel aforementioned spring crush feelings--like the the Essex Minibag ($98.00) is perfect for carrying anything you might need.

Coachella Nail Art

So, we've already picked out our favorite must-have manis for Coachella this weekend (think: palm trees, peace signs and tribal print), but for the not-so-artistically-inclined folks, this news comes as kind of a bummer. But, hey, don't be too sad about your lack of painting skills just yet—YSL released a set of super cool "tie-dye" top coats that'll add an ombre effect to whatever polish you swipe it on. Let us explain! The La Laque Couture Tie and Dye collection (which comes in four colors: Cool, Pop, Hit, and Ice) has three different finishes layered inside one bottle. The bottom is infused with glitter, the center is a sheer tinted shade, and the top is straight-up clear gloss. If you dip the brush in and use as-is, it'll give your nails that killer gradient effect, but if you shake it up, it'll add an even, shimmery tinted top coat to put over your favorite colors (or bare nails!)

Between this week's New York Times profile on founder Sophia Amoruso (they nickname her "Cinderella of Tech"), a rumored deal with Urban Outfitters, and its day-to-day biz of dressing girls in generally badass, super cute clothes, Nasty Gal is clearly on a fast track to world domination. But first, the label has to make a quick pit stop at Coachella. For the newest lookbook, Sophia and co. recruited YouTube star and all-around Cali cool girl Pia Mia Perez to model the brand's latest collection of festival-ready wares. We first suspected something rad was brewing between the two when Sophia posted this picture to Instagram a couple of weeks ago with the caption "@princesspiamia prepares to caravan across the desert with our team to shoot the upcoming Coachella lookbook. Instagram castings do happen!" Hold up, Instagram CASTINGS?! With almost 200K followers on her @PrincessPiaMia account, Sophia isn't exactly plucking Pia Mia from obscurity, Cinderella-style...but the unusual story of how the teen scored her first real modeling gig does sound a bit like a 21st century fairytale.

You know what's even better than those Sky Ferreira and Forever 21 Festival 2013 Capsule Collection photos we showed you last week? OK, even though a massive gift card to buy all the clothes for ourselves would be nice, right now we're actually talking about a fashion movie-meets-music video, starring the singer herself! And yes, it's totally happening. While shooting the ads at The Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs, Sky and the F21 crew also did a little multitasking, crafting a whole new music vid for her super gorgeous single "Lost In My Bedroom." Aptly titled Desert Disco, the sun-drenched clip is THE perfect mashup of the breezy, concert-inspired collection and Sky's catchy soundtrack. In addition to checking out the video, peep our exclusive behind the scenes clip below! Makeup touch-ups, Sky goofing off on-camera...it's all here. So watch the sneak peek, and start your California dreaming early.

When other starlettes were hitting up Coachella swagged out with custom arrowhead baubles and Dolce & Gabbana crop tops, leave it to our girl Kristen Stewart to keep it real with some stealth accessible fashions. The Breaking Dawn: Part 2 star attended the valley music festival outfitted in primarily American Eagle duds that you, dear reader, can snag right now for prices that won't send your credit card into clinical depression.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
