Revolve Festival Coachella: Kendall Jenner, Cardi B and Emily Ratajkowski party at Coachella Weekend One
From an unexpected N*Sync reunion to Donald Glover and Rihanna’s short film Guava Island making its grand premiere, Coachella Weekend One saw both major performances and major looks.
Despite acts including Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala drawing people to the stages, as usual the exclusive Coachella parties were a celebrity draw too.
Cardi B, Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and a host of Victoria’s Secret angels took to the VIP area over the festival weekend, where they sprawled on couches away from the blazing heat or danced the night away with gigantic Pikachu mascots.
The Revolve Festival drew Cardi B and her husband Offset. The couple mixed business with pleasure at the party by performing together, sneaking a kiss on stage during their set. Cardi B channelled her own take on Coachella’s festival whimsy, complete with rainbow space buns and bright yellow nails.
Kendall Jenner - who arrived wearing elbow length gloves - later joined her friend Gigi Hadid at one of the weekend’s most exclusive parties: the Bootsy Bellows pool party.
They weren’t the only models seen over the weekend, as Winnie Harlow shut down a whole carousel as she posed on a blue seahorse with cotton candy in hand. Actresses Victoria Justice, Alexis Ren and Catherine McNamara also struck a pose on the ride.
Victoria’s Secret angels Elsa Hosk, Shanina Shaik, Jasmine Tookes, Romee Strijd and Sara Sampaio breezed through the party in florals and bouncy hair. Stella Maxwell also showed up, wearing a red dress and big sunnies.
Denim brand Levi’s also threw its own rival Party in the Desert event with guests including Hailey Bieber (sans husband), Emily Ratajkowski and Chloe Sevigny’s boyfriend Luka Sabbat.
EmRata found time for a costume change, dressed in matchy-matchy polka dots with Alexis Ren.
Golden Globe winner Darren Criss - whose Coachella looks are always a delight - was on form again this year with a trippy co-ord. Will Smith’s son Jaden Smith was also seen buddying up to the likes of Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg, who manned the decks at the party. Joan Smalls was also spotted relaxing at the party too, wearing what appear to be a pair of janties.
The Levi’s party didn’t stop there, as later that evening the brand threw a Neon Carnival with Bondi Sands and POKEMON: Detective Pikachu. It was truly the party that seemed to catch them all, as stars braved the colder desert evening to make an appearance - including musician Janelle Monae.
However, nobody could compete with Paris Hilton - who came dressed as a rave-ready Pikachu.
She was joined by a posse:
Other stars who showed up included Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, Gregg Sulkin, Jeremy Meeks and Us actor Winston Duke.
Moschino also threw a luxe party which saw the likes of pop singer Lizzo, music producer Diplo and the brand’s designer Jeremy Scott step out.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka also made a rare appearance with her new beau Charlie Oldman (Gary Oldman’s son) at the party, before meeting up with 13 Reasons Why star Tommy Dorfman.
While everyone was off partying the night away, others marched to the beat of their own drum. 17 year old Billie EIlish, who made her Coachella debut to massive internet fanfare, instead decided to hop on a scooter and do circles around a tennis court at Interscope’s Coachella party.
You keep doing you, Billie.
