Coachella is a behemoth. It's the festival that made festival style an institution. It's the first festival of the season and the one everyone—and we mean, almost, everyone—somehow finds a way to go to. It's a place to let your freak flag fly a little higher; the weirder and more adventurous your style, the better. We were out there for weekend one, roaming—okay, running around the grounds in search of the boldest individuals we could find. And, boy did we find 'em. From sky-high platforms to the coolest puppies ever, we saw it all. To be honest, we're still trying to get the glitter off us; it was worth it, though. It was hella Coachella, and we wouldn't have it any other way. On to the next fest!
