The Most Outrageous Outfits At Coachella

Coachella 2013 crazy outfitFloral crowns, body paint and skimpy clothing were the three biggest trends at this year’s Coachella.

When it’s nearly 100 degrees in the desert on the outskirts of Palm Springs, clothing is limited and sometimes, even optional.

In recent years, the annual Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival has become as much of a fashion show as it is about the music.

Some trends we noticed on the fields this year: bikinis, body paint, masks, headdresses, wigs, floral crowns, cut-off shorts and embellished sunglasses.

Usually all worn at once.

Coachella-goers are known to bring out their craziest and most colourful outfits for the 3 day festival in the hot desert.

Even the musicians — like Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards of Deap Vally — get in the spirit.

Masks and head gear were a big theme this year.

Others went to the dark side.

And preferred a more gothic look.

While others went for a tribal look.

Wearing tons of feathers.

And statement jewelry.

But why wear clothes when you can just wear body paint?

Or body paint and bras.

Chris Brown's ex-Karreuche Tran swore a very Rihanna-like outfit.

Some came prepared for Sunday's sand storm.

Others covered up with big blankets when the sand storm hit.

Devoted fans took the Coachella theme to whole new level.
