WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
"I'm wearing flared denim dungarees and an open-shoulder blouse that I've paired with a fringe suede bag and a pair of high-heeled boots. This look and silhouette is very 70s and perfect for Coachella."

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE ITEMS IN H&M'S COACHELLA COLLECTION?
"I love the denim jumpsuit that I'm wearing. There's also a black dress with fringes that's really pretty!"

WHAT ARE YOUR BEST TIPS TO LOOK GOOD IN HOT WEATHER?
"Wear sunscreen, natural makeup and a little blusher to enhance your face shape. You have to wear sunglasses and sunscreen, not too tight clothes and of course a bag with an extra jacket for when the sun sets."

YOU'RE A PART OF H&M'S COACHELLA SQUAD. WHO'S YOUR ULTIMATE CELEBRITY SQUAD MEMBER?
"Kylie Jenner! She's so funny and I watch her on Snapchat and TV all the time."

WHAT CELEBRITY HAD YOU WISHED TO SPOT AT COACHELLA?
"Beyoncé! She's a goddess and the world's greatest diva. Also, I think we would get along, haha."

ARE THERE ANY COACHELLA TRENDS YOU DON'T GET?
"Nope. When you're at a festival, you're allowed to go crazy with clothes. I like everything and love when people go all-in, because it's so different from what we're all used to seeing in the street or at parties. It's just three days, make the most of it!"

WHAT'S A FRESH LOOK FOR FESTIVAL SEASON 2016?
"I've seen a bunch of sneakers with lit-up soles. Those are cool. Otherwise, just long, loose dresses!"

WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR AT A FESTIVAL?
"Honestly, heels – although I'm wearing them now. I wouldn't wear skinny jeans either because when it gets hot they stick to your skin and that's super uncomfortable. Aside from that I would wear anything that I like. You're not going to be judged at Coachella."

Wear sunscreen, natural makeup and a little blush to enhance your face shape.

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
"I'm wearing sweatshorts with a matching tee. I think it's an orignal look that's not too much, but definitely not basic. If you wear it with some special accessories, it's the perfect outfit for Coachella."

WHAT'S YOUR BEST FASHION TIPS TO LOOK GOOD IN THE DESERT HEAT?
"Bring a bag with a hoodie or a jacket because it does get cold when the sun sets. Wear loose-fitting clothes in breathable fabrics, like cotton and linen. Don't wear leather and don't wear anything too tight – no one looks good in uncomfortable clothes."

WHO'S YOUR ULTIMATE CELEBRITY SQUAD MEMBER?
"I agree, Marta. I would love to hang out with Kylie Jenner at Coachella!"

WHAT CELEBRITY WOULD YOU WANT TO SPOT AT COACHELLA?
"Portuguese Victoria's Secret model Sara Sampaio. She's my favourite model and it would be cool to see her here – but I'm not going to stalk her, haha."

WHAT'S A FRESH LOOK FOR FESTIVAL SEASON 2016?
"Matching sets! Or resort shirts in tropical prints, loose trousers and sandals."

WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR AT A FESTIVAL?
"Hmmm. I've seen guys walk around in speedos. I wouldn't do that. But there are no real don'ts at Coachella, it's like a fashion show and I can tell that everyone prepares their outfits days ahead."

There are no real don'ts at Coachella.

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
”I chose the playsuit, because it’s very comfy in the heat. And I am obsessed with the golden colours right now.”

IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME AT COACHELLA?         
“Yes, and I love it. It’s way fancier than all other music festivals I’ve been to. It’s so beautiful and so organised. I love the art, and how fashionable people are.”

WHAT’S YOUR BEST COACHELLA STYLING TIP?
”Wear layers. When the sun goes down and the wind is blowing, you are going to need it. And don't wear heels, wear shoes you can dance in.”

YOUR BEST BEAUTY TIP?
”Moisturise – lips, face, hands. It is so dry here. And drink lots of water, that is always my best beauty tip.”

WHO IS YOUR ULTIMATE CELEBRITY SQUAD MEMBER?
”Lykke Li. She is so cool.”

WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR TO A FESTIVAL?
”Heels. Other than that, I would wear anything. Even long flowy skirts, they might be a problem when you need to use the restroom, but they look so good in the wind.”

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
”Embroidered denim shorts and an off-the-shoulder top with crochet details. It’s really my style.”

IT’S THIS YOUR FIRST TIME AT COACHELLA?
”Yes. It’s crazy; it’s like a dream. You want to go somewhere for so long, and now you’re finally here – I can’t believe it!”

YOUR FAVOURITE GIG SO FAR?
”Asap Rocky was really good, and Christine and the Queens was amazing too. She is so good on stage.”

WHAT’S YOUR BEST COACHELLA BEAUTY TIP?
”I only wear a little makeup – a BB cream and that’s it.”

WHO IS YOUR ULTIMATE CELEBRITY SQUAD MEMBER?
”Rihanna. I want to see her so much, I love her! She is my favourite singer.”

ARE THERE ANY COACHELLA TRENDS YOU’VE HAD ENOUGH OF?
”Not really, I love them all. If I go to a festival in Paris, people wear really simple stuff. Here people are playing around, having fun with fashion and just enjoying it. I love it, even if it’s not my style.”

WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR TO A FESTIVAL?
”A fur.”

I only wear a little makeup – a bb cream and that’s it.

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
”A fringed skirt and a top with bell sleeves. And sunglasses, round like John Lennon’s! I think you should wear colours at Coachella – it’s something different to Paris.”

IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME AT COACHELLA?
”No, it’s my third time. I love California, and I am a big fan of electronic music – there are a lot of good electronic acts here.”

YOUR FAVOURITE GIG SO FAR?
”Jack Ü, Skrillex and Diplo. It was amazing. It was crazy! It was one of the best concerts of my life.”

DESCRIBE YOUR COACHELLA MAKEUP LOOK.
”I actually wear a lot of makeup – foundation and powder, because I don’t want to be too shiny.”

WHAT’S YOUR BEST STYLE AND BEAUTY TIPS?
”Drink a lot of water and don’t wear black. Well, I am wearing black today so, voilà.”

WHO IS YOUR ULTIMATE CELEBRITY SQUAD MEMBER?
”Yelle, a French singer. She performed at Coachella last year.”

ARE THERE ANY COACHELLA TRENDS YOU’VE HAD ENOUGH OF?
”I am tired of the flower crowns, even though it’s cute.”

WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR AT A FESTIVAL?
”Heels are a really bad idea.”

Heels are a really bad idea.

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
”Today I went for something I can layer – a jacket and shorts. And I’m wearing boots, yesterday I wore sandals and it was too sandy.”

IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME AT COACHELLA?
”Yes, and I love it. It is so organised, the food is so good, which is so rare at the festival. I love the acai bowls.”

YOUR BEST COACHELLA STYLING TIP?
”Layering is super important in the desert because it gets chilly at night. Other than that, shorts and a bandana for the wind.”

AND BEAUTY TIP?
”Sunglasses! The sun washes everything out when you take photos so you can’t really see any makeup. So just a clean face and a pair of sunglasses. Hydrate, drink a lot of water!”

WHO IS YOUR ULTIMATE CELEBRITY SQUAD MEMBER?
”A Kardashian! I would say Kendall, I love her model look.”

ARE THERE ANY COACHELLA TRENDS YOU’VE HAD ENOUGH OF?
”I am kind of over the shirt tied around the waist thing.”

SO WHAT’S A FRESH LOOK FOR THIS FESTIVAL SEASON?
”I love the tribal trend, patterns with a desert feel.”

WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR TO A FESTIVAL?
”New shoes. You will get blisters, and the shoes will be ruined.”

Layering is super important in the desert.

WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?
”High-waist denim shorts, and a fancy top and fringes. Fringes look so festival-like, and I chose high-waist shorts because they’re hot and sexy, but at the same they keep your belly all tucked in.”

IS THIS YOUR FIRST TIME AT COACHELLA?
”Yes. I am dazzled. I’ve always known that it’s very cool, from looking at pictures, but I didn’t realise exactly how cool it is.”

WHAT’S YOUR BEST TIP FOR DRESSING FOR THIS HOT WEATHER?
”You need to pay attention to the fabrics you’re wearing – no fake fabrics, no plastics. And you need a hat! All these years I thought the hats were a styling thing, but yesterday I realised that people wear them so they don’t die from the sun. Beauty-wise, I would recommend very light makeup. You will mostly wear sunglasses anyway.”

WHO IS YOUR ULTIMATE CELEBRITY SQUAD MEMBER?
”Alex Turner [from Arctic Monkeys and The Last Shadow Puppets]. I kind of want to marry him. I saw The Last Shadow Puppets last night, and I loved how he got on stage and said ”So Coachella, who do you think you are?”

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FESTIVAL TREND FOR 2016?
“Long, flowy fabrics. I love them. But you have to mix it up so you don’t look like a nun.”

WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER WEAR TO A FESTIVAL?
”A mini skirt. I would never be really comfortable in it, and it’s not good if you want to sit in the grass.”
