There’s no doubt that Coachella is always a polarizing fashion affair. But the haphazard outfits mixed in with the surprisingly good make Coachella … Coachella. Of course, the 2024 lineup held its weight: Doja Cat gave the performance of a lifetime; Lana Del Rey returned to her roots; and Sabrina Carpenter garnered a new wave of fans. The live music is great, but the outfit judging is even better — and as we anticipated, cowboy flair, denim, and frothy, semi-sheer layers took the forefront. Below are all the best, and worst, Coachella looks from the weekend.

Alessandra Ambrosio was seen arriving at the Celsius event in what can only be described as a pure, tried-and-true Coachella ensemble. With all of fashion looking to the past, this level of nostalgia was appreciated.

The internet’s favorite Irishman didn’t arrive unnoticed — all eyes were on his matching Burberry look and Versace tank as he lost his mind during Sabrina Carpenter’s set.

On and off the red carpet, Teyana Taylor turns heads. While a cowboy hat isn’t rare during Coachella, her modernization of it with a semi-sheer dress and denim Balenciaga boots during the Revolve Festival was.

Is it a Croc? Is it a Pringles can? Is it “fab,” like Ivy Getty’s comment? Who knows. Onlookers were equal parts shocked and intrigued. Our team is still very split. Either way, Pringles wins.

Gone are the days of Paris Hilton exclusively sporting Barbie pink. The forever icon stepped out on Coachella day two with a western-inspired outfit featuring a 12th Tribe cowboy hat.

Coachella is meant to be playful, experimental, and Western-leaning. This is why Karrueche Tran makes our worst-dressed list in her beach-ready crochet mini.

With a streetwear lean, Glorilla gave us full nineties style with spray-painted denim, layered chains, and of course, the peace sign. Yeah, Glo!

We didn’t think we’d spot these two together again so soon, but alas. A video shows the duo in the crowd dancing to “Karma (Remix.)” Ice was in black lace while Swift wore a green “New Heights” cap supporting Travis Kelce’s podcast. Why not.

Charli D’Amelio embraced all black with a layered bikini and sheer skirt at the Celsius “Cosmic Desert” Coachella Event. Cute.

The internet is rejoicing in what seems to be Doja Cat’s best performance to date, even better than her Scarlet Tour. The hair, the theatrics, the drama! We loved it.

Carpenter has become known for her looks, so it’s only fitting she made a statement onstage. She performed in two custom Roberto Cavalli looks — a possible homage to the late designer, who passed that same day.

Some people show up to party, and others show up in casual California attire. Either way, Hamlin was too relaxed for the weekend, IMO. Have some fun, Amelia!

While this look is pared back, we were thrilled to see Ryan Destiny adding a sultry edge to an otherwise neutral ensemble. However, this look would work for a dinner party in NYC, not Coachella.

Waterhouse and Pattinson didn’t shy away from the crowds, and Suki leaned into trends with an oversized fur coat and colorful sneakers.

There’s no denying ASAP and Riri’s influence, star power, and personal style ethos. I don’t care if they look Coachella — they look fly.

Is it Coachella, or is it a baby shower? Taylor Hill, of OG Victoria’s Secret’s fame, should have stood on business.

I can see it so clearly; you’ve been waiting in line at Bootsy Bellows for the past thirty minutes when suddenly, a posse of blondes emerge and get in before you. They’re all wearing this outfit.

Pookie…you’re famous now! It’s time to be adventurous. Ditch the ruffles and show some upper torso!

Singer and songwriter Thuy embraced her larger-than-life personality with shredded layers, cut-outs, and swaths of lightweight threads. We’re here for it.

While I see the Sporty Spice vision here for Rapp, I wish she would’ve taken more of a sartorial leap of faith. Great set, though.
