Yes, festival season kicked off this weekend and, if the flood of palm trees and private-jet interiors on your feed is any indication, the most excitable A-listers swarmed the valley. Even better, judging by the first round of Instagram posts, the whole festival season week going to be full of next-level looks.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best of celebrity Coachella desert style — from models with glowing skin and lace crop tops to A-list actresses dressed down in ripped denim and

Baby-pink silk bows are best styled with a pink-tinged highlight, à la Olivia Culpo.
Rowan Blanchard’s sassy pixie cut looks even cuter paired with a neon-pink crop top and peep-toe sandals in front of a palm tree-sprinkled backdrop.
