"Could it be any hotter?" Michelle Trachtenberg asked InStyle yesterday afternoon at The Avalon Hotel in Palm Springs, about a 40-minute drive from the Coachella Music & Arts Festival, but still equally sweltering. Seriously. Temperatures soared near triple digits, but despite the heat, the Sleepy Hollow actress and her fellow seasoned festival vets—Ashley Greene, Bella Thorne, and Nikki Reed among them—remained in high spirits, dancing and cheering for Reed's new capsule collection for Revolve Clothing.
The 10-piece range, which conveniently launched a week before the fest, includes lace dresses, wide-leg pants, and embroidered tanks—all quintessential wardrobe staples for anyone who's cruising out west this weekend. "It's all about light, flowy gear that will make you feel comfortable all day and night," Reed said, noting her off-the-shoulder peasant top from her line, which she paired with STRÖM Brand shorts. Her fellow Twilight co-star Greene, in a Parker dress, agreed: "It gets cold at night and it's so hot during the day. You need things that will translate."
Ditto for the party guests, who channeled the festival's desert hippie mantra. Read: copious amounts of fringe, flower crowns, and peasant tops. "My friends and I are doing a count of how many people with flower crowns we’re seeing," Odeya Rush said. "We don’t want to be basic, so we're not wearing them." The tally likely ran higher and higher over the course of the afternoon, as Cult Gaia's DIY flower crown station got more crowded by the minute.
Following a performance by Jhené Aiko, people darted for the buffet, which featured a make-your-own taco station, and the bar, where drinks with cheeky titles riffing on the party's sponsors were offered: the Revolve-arita (tequila, triple sec, and lime juice) and StyleWatch Springs (vodka and pink lemonade). Amidst songs being blasted by DJ Chelsea Leyland on the ones and twos, celebs gabbed to each other about who they wanted to see perform over the weekend. "I'm committed to Drake," Trachtenberg said. Seeing as he's the last headliner, we're expecting boatloads of SPF before then.
