And just like that, Coachella weekend one is over. In case you missed it — or in case you want to relive all of your favorite shows — we've rounded up some of the coolest pictures from some of the bands. Click through to see acts like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Modest Mouse rock out, and see R. Kelly join Phoenix on stage and more. Consider it both a look back and a preview for weekend two!
Among Coachella's best-dressed A-list pack, Kate Bosworth certainly ranks high, and it has a lot to do with her day-one look. The blond actress hit the fairgrounds in a scalloped white leather shorts set that not only proved fresh and just a tad bit girlie, but also — thanks to the allover laser-cut perforations — supplied a new way to wear white this Summer. The best part? This outfit comes courtesy of Topshop's not-yet-debuted Festival collection, which promises a 360-degree campaign dedicated to the music, clothes, film, and attitude of the British music festival scene. And who better to test drive the Festival lineup than a bona fide cool girl (that just so happens to have her own ties to Topshop, too)?
We love that she stuck to her signature "less is more" styling approaching, adding only the minimum in festival-going necessities. Her brown shoulder bag, aviator sunglasses, metal-tipped ankle boots, and Jennifer Fisher cuff were the only accessories thrown into the mix. As for actually getting our hands on her Topshop Festival combo, we're counting the days until we hear more about this unreleased collection — stay tuned.
One of the biggest Coachella rumors making the rounds at the festival this weekend was that Phoenix would welcome a special musical guest to the stage during their Saturday night set — but no one guessed it would be R. Kelly. The band is releasing their album Bankrupt! this month, their first since 2009's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. The buzz around the festival grounds was that Daft Punk might be making a surprise appearance during Phoenix's show. Daft Punk is also on the verge of releasing a long-awaited album, and the groups have surprised fans before, playing during the encore of Phoenix's Oct. 20, 2010, Madison Square Garden show.
However, after Phoenix's set ended around 12:30 a.m., the stage went dim for a couple of minutes before Kelly's voice soared out into the night and fans started rushing the stage. Kelly and Phoenix front man Thomas Mars joined forces for a spirited duet, blending "Ignition (Remix)" with the music from Phoenix's track "1901." The performance wasn't the only collaboration in the desert yesterday. Solange Knowles also took the stage to sing with The XX. To watch the Phoenix and Kelly performance, just keep reading.
Last night's A/X Armani ExchangeNeon Carnival at Coachella brought the stars out for a night out in the desert. The carnival-themed event, held at an airport hangar, lasted early into the morning. During the festivities, Julianne Hough, Alex Pettyfer, and Ed Westwick took turns throwing darts, while Emma Roberts hopped on the giant slide. Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend, Austin Butler, also took advantage of the rides and took a spin on the bumper cars, while Alexander Skarsgard was spotted making the rounds solo. One unexpected guest at the bash was Clint Eastwood, who played carnival games, sipped beer, and stopped to take some photos with fans.

We're going macro on you with close-ups of the prettiest festival jewels, coolest bags and shoes, and the most inspired headwear from Coachella. The annual two-weekend music festival in Indio, CA, is a feast for our ears — and our eyes. It's worth obsessing about the little things, because they make all the difference, right? We are getting up close and personal with the best accessories that Coachella has to offer, so click through to be inspired — and maybe just a little bit jealous.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were back to enjoying the Coachella action yesterday afternoon. Kristen and Robert walked through the crowds, checking out performances and holding hands intermittently along the way. They kicked things off Friday, watching Jurassic 5 with a group of friends that included Katy Perry. Rob, Kristen, and Katy are among the many celebrities hanging out at Coachella this year — festival regulars Kate Bosworth, Alessandra Ambrosio, and the Hilton sisters are also out in the desert of Indio, CA.
We couldn't help but notice the cute couples scene at Coachella. By combining their forces, these guys and gals — whether they're buddies, best friends, or lovers — proved that two style brains are better than one with their complementing aesthetics, cool duds, and overall cuteness factor. Some pairs opted for easy and effortless style, while others showed off edgier wares; either way, we're obsessed with all of them. Feast your eyes on the couples to take on Coachella 2013, and then tell us which two get your best-dressed vote in the comments section below.
Today's H&M Loves Music pool party was held at the expansive Merv Griffin Estate just outside of Palm Springs. The bash was the first such event the global fashion brand has thrown in conjunction with Coachella. The festivities featured paddleboat rides and ping-pong tables, carnival snacks including popcorn, cotton candy, and churros, and a live poolside performance by Santigold. Santigold hit the stage late in the afternoon and played some of her biggest hits, including "L.E.S. Artistes," for the crowd. During the soiree, we caught up with Sophia Bush, who was lounging under an umbrella with a group, and spotted Darren Criss taking a turn on the paddleboats. Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson also arrived with friend and designer Jason Wu and relaxed by the pool.
Later on, Diane and Joshua transitioned to the Coachella festival itself, where they shared a few kisses in the VIP sections as bands played. Several famous couples have been making the rounds at the festival this year. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were at Coachella last night, Michael Polish and Kate Bosworth spent yesterday afternoon checking out bands including Beach House, and even Hilary Duff and her husband Mike Comrie made their way out to the desert to take in the first of two Coachella weekends.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were among the many celebrities at Coachella, which also included Kate Bosworth, Leonardo DiCaprio, Alessandra Ambrosio, and many more, yesterday. Following their Thursday sushi date in LA, Rob and Kristen got out of the city and went to the desert to link up with friends, including Katy Perry, for the evening of music. Rob and Kristen were photographed last night enjoying the Jurassic 5 show, drinking out of a shared Gatorade bottle, while talking with their friends. Make sure to check back at POPSUGAR for all the latest from Coachella as the weekend progresses.
Today, the Lacoste L!ve Coachella party continued for a second day, with Elijah Wood manning the turntables for the crowd. Yesterday, Katy Perry stopped to pose for photos with the classic Lacoste alligator as she arrived to the event. Katy, who has been making the rounds at the festival this weekend, donned a tropical-themed bra top and miniskirt by Dolce & Gabbana to the soiree; she even carried a matching pineapple purse. On Friday night, she took in some music at Coachella with her friends Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Katy was one of several recording artists and musicians at the Lacoste event over the weekend, where Alexa Chung played DJ and Rita Ora relaxed in the shade. Meanwhile, Chris Pine, Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio, and The Carrie Diaries actress AnnaSophia Robb lounged in a cabana together during the hot desert afternoon, and brothers Joe and Nick Jonas stayed cool in hats and shades as they made the rounds.
