Coachella: the other Kate

This time last year I was stranded in LA following the Coachella festival (thank you giant volvanic ash cloud from a volcano I can never pronounce). The belle of the festival was one Kate Bosworth.

She hands down stole the show in a blue and white tie-dye dress by Suno (it shouldn't work but it did - it really did). On the shoulders of her boyfriend she epitomised all of the good and none of the bad things about festivals - and ended up on hundreds of design moodboards in the process.

So this year, from the comfort of home (grr) rather than the 100F Californian desert I was intrigued to see who'd topple her from the style podium.

So who was it?

It was Bosworth again. Man, that girl can dress for festivals. Just look at her ...

Her laid back, rock chick Americana look with oversized stars and stripes t-shirt and white denim cut-offs for day and a black midi dress and gladiators for after hours were a lesson in perfect festival dressing. [The man in the Stones t-shirt behind her is so impressed, he's turned to stone.]

Of course the long, honey-coloured limbs and surfer girl hair help but it's the carefree, easy vibe she gives off that really win her extra points.

Well done Kate: A+
