From red carpet to desert grounds: Looks we love from MTV Awards and Coachella Weekend 1

Once again, so much has happened over the weekend, so we’re not wasting any more time. We’re starting with our favorite looks from Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards.

Emma Watson was honoured with a Trailblazer Award for her achievements in acting. Here in Coco-Fashion though, we honour her with the best dressed award for looking truly amazing in a Maxine Simoens graphic-print dress and black platform sandals.

It’s a shame Amanda Seyfried skipped the red carpet because we think the long-sleeved nude tone mini dress deserved a moment. We love how the black leather trims contrasted and yet worked very well with the light-purple lace overlay making the dress feminine but edgy at the same time.

Okay, before you judge our taste, we’d like to say that Hana Mae Lee of the musical comedy film Pitch Perfect is on our list of Looks We Love because we’re honestly digging the figure-hugging cut-out frock on her. The cigarette butt fascinator? Nah, it should have been left at, uh, the cigarette butt receptacle where it belongs.

We don’t know about you, but we think 15-year old Kylie Jenner is definitely keeping up with her much older Kardashian sisters in this white crop top and cream-colored pencil skirt combo, which she matched with pointed pumps.

Perhaps Kylie, who once mentioned she dreamed of becoming a Victoria Secret angel, was taking cues from model, and currently one of the VS angels, Karlie Kloss who bared her toned abs in a cropped white top with a cut-out detail and a coordinating pencil skirt for her stint as a red carpet host.

Jumping in on the all-white bandwagon is Disney’s Shake It Up star, Bella Thorne. She walked the red carpet in a classy Giorgio Armani suit which she matched with her shiny metallic pointed toe pumps (that we are coveting).

Before showing up all mature and tamed in a suit though, Bella was a picture of hip, young, and festival-ready in a high-waist denim cut-offs, crop top, sneakers, and a crown of wild flowers last Friday for day one of Coachella.

Yes, you read that right. The hipsters, the hippies-chic, indie music lovers, convened once again for Weekend 1 of The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival which is being held (Weekend 2 will be on April 19 through 21) in Indio, California. Here are the looks we love.

Let’s face it. Model Alessandra Ambrosio  could dress up in a sack and she would still end up looking amazing. But she, as well as newly-single actress Julianne Hough, preferred to show off her gams in a pair of lace short shorts instead. The model opted for a boho look – light, hippie blouse, lace-webbed wrap, felt stetson hat, studded leather belt, brown cowboy boots, and tasseled leather pouch. Julianne, however, paired hers with a midriff-baring bustier top.

In case you’re planning on catching Weekend 2, or you just want to don a festival-inspired outfit on your next outing, make sure you include this closet staple in your summer wardrobe.

If there is anything Hillary Duff learned from Coachella veterans Nicky Hilton, Diane Kruger, and Emma Watson it is that ankle boots are standard footwear if you want to survive the heat, dust, and this year’s blinding sandstorm.

Whether you’re attending the festival or not, bust out in cutting-edge fashion with a pair of Coco-Fashion ankle booties.

As most attendees, if not all of them, will tell you, showing up in style is nowhere half the battle at Coachella. You still have to survive the sweltering heat during the day and the strong winds (and sandstorm) at night. So it is important to pack the essentials – bottled water, sunscreen, extra layer of clothing (or a change of clothes if you please), your phone and charger (the list could go on depending on your arrangements and level of adaptability.) – but without ending up lugging a trolley across the vast polo grounds. The solution? A crossbody. It hefts only your necessary needs allowing you to run from one stage to the next and party without any inhibitions.

Get Coachella-ready in a Coco-Fashion shoulder bag which can easily be turned into a crossbody.

We know that this is already quite a long post (we told you, A LOT happened over the weekend!) but we cannot end without honoring the lives lost and those whose lives have been abruptly changed by the Boston Marathon explosions. Our thoughts go out to the victims, the families, and everyone affected. We would like to end this post by echoing what comedian and voice actor Patton Oswalt said in light of what happened in Boston:

…the vast majority stands against the darkness…and they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak…So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you and we always will.”
