With Coachella happening for the first time since 2019, it is time to begin planning your outfits. Celebrities are a great place to look for inspiration, from their hair to their clothing to their shoes- everything is jaw-dropping. Check out this rundown of celebrities' most iconic Coachella looks from over the years!
Vanessa Hudgens has been campaigning to be queen of Coachella for years now, so her effortlessly put-together looks make her a beacon of inspiration. Famous for her bohemian style, there are so many aspects that you can incorporate into your outfit this year; a fan favorite is the use of jewelry. Hudgens is almost always rocking fun accessories, especially body jewelry, which is always a fun way to spice up an already cute ensemble.
Kendall Jenner is another fashion icon with her sleek high-fashion looks. However, when Coachella comes around, she usually steps out of her comfort zone and wears a flashier look. Her 2017 outfit was ahead of its time and includes pieces that look like they are right out of this year, taking inspiration from the ’70s. To stay cool during the day and warm at night, you should follow Jenner’s lead. It is crucial to wear a jacket or cardigan that ensures your outfit will be perfect as the day progresses.
Rihanna is a fashion icon! Somehow everything she wears always looks good on her, which is a mentality you should bring into your Coachella style. Taking risks and stepping outside of the box are the only ways that you will be able to stand out and incorporates your personality the same way that Rihanna’s looks do.
Selena Gomez is another perfect example of someone who decided to be authentic to herself and wear something unique. Despite her dress not screaming Coachella, it still embodied the spirit of what this music festival is all about. Having fun and not conforming to society’s norms, whether that be through fashion or music, Gomez’s 1950s-inspired dress and matching scarf were adorable and a chic way to do something different.

Model Chanel Iman always treats Coachella like her own personal runway, and her outfits never disappoint. Iman spiced up her already flashy pants with cutouts and an edgy belt that complemented the pirate-inspired look perfectly. With low-rise pants coming back in style, thanks to style icons like Julia Fox, this might be a fashionable outfit to take inspiration from.
Paris Hilton’s style is always a fun celebrity to look out for at any event she attends because of her over-the-top outfits covered in pink sequins. Her iconic style might not be for everyone, but her Coachella look from this year is a moment, despite straying away from her usual colorful outfits. The black-on-black lace, see-through dress is always a staple look and is an ideal way to elevate up an otherwise basic outfit. To hone more into the witchy aesthetic, you might want to consider throwing on a wide-brimmed black hat!
Do not let a monochromatic outfit fool you. Ensuring that your colors match perfectly is surprisingly hard, yet, Cardi B is a perfect example of someone who did monochrome right. Her all-white Coachella getup looks effortless and sleek while still giving just enough edge because of her confidence not to get her outfit dirty. Her hairstyle is another aspect you can take inspiration from because of its adorableness and usefulness to keep you cool during the hot daytime by having your hair tied up.
Say what you will about Billie Eilish’s 2019 Coachella outfit, but you cannot deny it is one of her most iconic looks. All fur pants might be a little too adventurous for some people, but they are a unique statement piece as long as you remember to wear something lightweight and breathable to ensure you do not overheat. Surprisingly, Pit Viper glasses are super trendy, so you could take inspiration from how Eilish matched her glasses to the neon from her shirt.
Another example of someone who did monochrome correctly is Winnie Harlow. How can you not fall in love with this outfit, especially when her hair matches the pink in her look? If you like to experiment with fun hair colors, this could be a stylish way to add dimension to your ensemble and stand out! Hair and makeup are often an afterthought when coming up with looks, but by making it a part of your planning, there is no doubt that you will look as cool as Harlow.
Similar to Paris Hilton's Coachella outfit, Balla Thorne’s see-through white dress is everything. The sparkles throughout the dress and the rave-style hat are trendy touches to this outfit. A way to take inspiration from this already gorgeous look would be to add a pop of color with your undergarments and match them with your shoes. By doing this, you will undoubtedly be turning heads left and right.
