Coachella 2014

The Coachella music festival in California is one of the coolest on both the fashion and music calender. Held in the scenic Empire Polo Club and boasting headliners such as Pharrell Williams, Outkast, Bryan Ferry, Ellie Goulding, The Knife and Lorde; this years’ Coachella was nothing short of a style spectacle with a whole host of A-Listers soaking up the sounds and sunshine.

The first weekend kicked off with Pharrell who took to the stage in his now famous giant Vivienne Westwood hat whilst Jay-Z made a surprise appearance. Whilst hot celeb goss was at a minimum, there was much excitement when it was discovered that Jay-Z wasn’t the only unexpected act…
Wife, mum, multi-billionaire superstar, style icon (and the rest!) Beyonce  gatecrashed her sister Solange’s on stage set for an energetic duet. Meanwhile Leonardo DiCaprio was allegedly spotted dancing in the crowds in a bizarre Youtube video. There were stars a-plenty at the Lacoste pool party whilst  Cynthia Vincent held a special blogger brunch nearby.  American Horror Story stars’ Evan Peters and Emma Roberts were also see  getting cosy; exhibiting a few PDA’s  out in the open whilst Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler buddied up with Katy Perry who was seen rocking a brand new quirky green hairdo.

We take a look at the highlights of best snaps, selfies and stylings from the three-day event….

From Emporio Armani underwear campaigns with her Award-winningly handsome athlete husband David Beckham to countless Vogue covers; to gracing the red carpet alongside Hollywood royalty and beginning very own haircut trend (Forget the ‘90s ‘Rachel’, the Noughties were all about the POB?!), Victoria’s list of fashion achievements is endless…

For Dad 

Dad’s are notoriously the most difficult to buy for at Christmas time yet strangely easily pleased by the most bizarre things. Maybe skip the socks, whisky and toffee’s this year and get your dad a little slice of luxury. Foodie dads and gadget lovers will always thank you for the latest fad gifts whilst a quality bottle of Aftershave or a manly essentials kit should do the trick for dad’s who don’t often treat themselves. A designer jumper or wallet will also come in handy as an extra special Christmas present whilst a classic pair of sunglasses can’t go amiss. Make sure dad stays ahead of the Spring/Summer season with a pair of Tom Ford Charles Aviators..
