With ever unpredictable April showers in the air at the moment, it's proving more than a little tricky to embrace spring dressing. Pretty flyaway blouses have been replaced by hardy raincoats, summer dresses have been supplanted by warm woollies and sandals substituted for wellies, accompanied by the obligatory accessory for this time of year- the umbrella. If you're finding it as tricky as I am to envisage that perfect summer outfit with the weather being so changeable, then look no further. Whilst we might not be able to dig out our shorts and shades just yet, there's no harm in being prepared, and I've found the perfect inspiration for summer dressing in these looks from this year's Coachella festival, which unfolded in sunny California this weekend:

Emma Hill and Lily Collins at the Mulberry pool party.

Arizona Muse carrying the Mulberry Del Rey!

Harley Viera-Newton wearing a chic pastel trench and the best shoes I think I've ever seen!

Diane Kruger.

Kate Bosworth at the Mulberry party.

It seems even Coachella isn't an entirely welly free zone!

What were your favourite looks from Coachella? And do you look to festivals for summer style inspiration?

17.04.2012- Coachella Cool

Anyone who knows me well will tell you that going to a music festival is my idea of hell. Although I'm sure the atmosphere at places like Glastonbury and Reading is fantastic, I've never seen the appeal of being stuck inside a tent without access to hot water, a proper loo or a comfortable bed. As 'old-before-my-time' as it makes me sound, I'd much rather watch festival coverage on TV, sat on the sofa with a mug of tea and a biscuit or two, content in the knowledge that I don't have to worry about my tent flooding or getting trench foot from my waterlogged wellies. However, if I was to be seduced into going to one festival, it would, without a shadow of a doubt, be Coachella. Not only does the festival attract amazing headliners year on year, but it also takes places in California, so perfect weather is guaranteed. Coachella 2011 took place over the weekend, and, as we've come to expect, was as star-studded as ever. Here are my picks of the Coachella crew's festival fashion:

Diane Kruger in a relaxed maxi skirt and sun hat combo.
Kate Bosworth showing her patriotic side.
Isabel Lucas in a hippy inspired outfit.
Alexa Chung in a failsafe dress and summer sandals.
And, as if more proof were needed that sunny Coachella was the place to be over the weekend, Emma Hill hosted a Mulberry pool party, complete with cocktails, kebabs and more well-garbed guests...

Alexa (again!)
Camilla Belle.
Emma Hill and Gia Coppola.
Nicole Richie.
The pool...
...and the food!

If looking at that photo of the pool doesn't make you want to book a one way ticket to next year's festival then I don't know what will!

What do you think of music festivals? Have you ever been to one? And who was your best-dressed at Coachella?

18.04.2011- California Dreamin'

Here are my picks of last night's Costume Institute Gala Red Carpet:

Alexa Chung in Phillip Lim. I adore this look on Alexa, the bow detail really reminds me of a scene from Coco Before Chanel (if you've seen the film you probably know what I'm talking about.) Hair and makeup are styled to perfection, she looks effortlessly chic and really at ease here. Love!

Diane Kruger in Calvin Klein, clean, sophisticated and elegant, I really love her makeup here as well.

Chanel Iman in Michael Kors. I love the fact that Chanel chose to wear a jumpsuit rather than a gown, she looks radiant.

Anne Hathaway in Valentino, looking every inch the fairy tale princess.

Nicole Richie in Marc Jacobs, perfectly co-ordinated.

Kate Bosworth in Valentino, love the Jean Harlow-esque hairstyle, and the beaded detailing on the gown.

Kirsten Dunst in Rodarte for GAP; I am utterly in love with this dress.

Who stood out for you? Any I've missed? And who disappointed you?
