My Coachella: Birthday Girl Alessandra Ambrosio Sounds Off on Festival Dressing
Alessandra Ambrosio is basically the resident queen of Coachella, and this year, she's cemented her title with the launch of her very own festival-inspired jewelry collection for BaubleBar. The 50-piece range, appropriately named ále by Alessandra x BaubleBar, serves as the ideal accent for the myriad fringe, peasant tops, and neon shades we expect to see over the course of this weekend.
There are bold costume pieces with crystal stones, bright-colored stacking bracelets, gold headpieces, and Ambrosio's personal favorite, a moon necklace inspired by her own moon and star tattoo. We caught up with the Brazilian bombshell at POPSUGAR and ShopStyle's Cabana Club party, sponsored by VOCO, to get her take on the three-day music extravaganza. Here are her tips and the Coachella trend she never wants to see again.
Tools for Survival: It’s about the basics: dancing, organizing your schedule so you're able to see all the bands you want to see, charging your phone so you don't lose your friends, and keeping hydrated. I swear by coconut water.
First Coachella Experience: Seeing The Cure like 11 years ago. I didn't even know what Coachella was. I bought a pink cowboy hat and white shorts and just went with it.
Packing Strategy: My whole suitcase is alé by Alessandra! The line has swimsuits, cover-ups, hats, and jewelry, so it was a no-brainer. I just brought the whole collection, and all my friends are borrowing pieces.
Festival Trend She Never Wants to See Again: Plastic flower crowns. Some are cute, but there can be some really bad ones. You have to make sure you choose the right one.
Home Away from Home: Palm Springs is a totally different vibe than Brazil. At home, everything's lush and green and humid. I love the mountains all around here, and there are amazing spas all over the town.
Favorite Coachella Moment: Being with my daughter last year and seeing Lorde. She's a superfan. It was so much fun having her dancing and singing along with me.
Jewelry Abound: I’m a summer girl—I spend the summer here in America, and when it starts to get cold, I go to Brazil and spend the summer there. This collection feels like summer: It has neon colors, and it’s very delicate, so you can layer it over anything.
