Star vs Street Style at Coachella

It's finally getting sunny here in Vancouver (but still cold) and there's nothing that's more summery than a good music festival.  Along with Glastonbury, Coachella would be on my top list of festivals to attend.  Even if you can't find any music or bands you like, just being there for the fashion is worth it.

I scouted out some celebs and street stylers at Coachella - who do you think looks better?  The stars or the streeters?  Along with ripped jean shorts, gladiator sandals, and bikini tops, swingy white dresses, vintage florals, and 80's neon were major themes among concert goers. Wayfarers and heart-shaped sunglasses were spotted on more than a few.

Kelly Osbourne and Kimberly Stewart below.  I like Kimberly's dress.
Kirsten Dunst's drop-waisted white dress is sweet but I don't like the flip flops.

I think the streeters below showed more original style.  A lot of the ones profiled in Style.com rocked vintage gear.

The streeters are definitely more original. I understand why the celebs are wearing flip flops, but from my personal festival experience, I don't fine them very practical (sandals or boots are better). Do like Kirsten's dress though :)

I love both styles, though I think the street style has more risks, which is a bit more interesting. My goal next year is to hit up both festivals!

Hi there!:)
I answered your question on my blog about the bandage dresses, so you can check it out:)
I love summer dresses. The one thing that's very obvious when comparing photos of celebs vs streetstyle is that regular fashionistas are way more adventorous with their clothes.

totally agree with all of you - that the street style is hotter and more original. I especially love 1st and 3rd girl - i would totally wear that green dress!

Also love that green dress. Must be from the same era as my red one -- the cut is so similar.
