Coachella Festival: Mulberry Hosts A-List Barbecue

If like me you’ve been slightly avoiding some tweeters this weekend so not to see how much fun they are having at the Coachella Festival then I warn you look away now, as pictures from Mulberry’s barbecue and pool party hit my inbox over night and it looked amazing.

Yesterday the brand’s Creative Director Emma Hill and her giant monsters took over the Gene Autry House pool at The Parker hotel, in Palm Springs, and hosted a little R&R for some of its a-list pals and referenced the brand’s autumn/winter 2012 collection of mysterious monsters to create the perfect setting of sunbeds featuring the Mulberry monster fur print towels, monster cushions, and even giant monster lilos to relax in the pool.

Basically, the Mulberry monster invaded Coachella and served up BBQ kebabs and  lemonade popsicles to the likes of Emma Watson, Lily Collins and Kate Bosworth, and if that wasn’t enough they even got to wear prieces from the brand’s spring/summer and autumn/winter 2012 collections – think lots of animal prints, studs, and tassels.

Who: Emma Watson

Wearing: A Mulberry fuzzy tiger playsuit from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, teamed with a  black cardigan, belt, floppy hat, a Mulberry Mini Lily with Tassels in Oak from also from the autumn/winter 2012 collection, and gladiator-style flats

Verdict: This is a cute and pool party appropriate look from Emma and my best dressed Mulberry look, see Dree Hemingway at the bottom of the post in Dolce & Gabbana for my best overall look.

I am loving this playful look on her, sometimes I find Emma can be a little too serious in her style, which don’t get me wrong is generally impeccable, but I am loving that she is having a little fun with the animal print. I also love how she made the look her own with the addition of the belt, and that 70’s style hat. Also the tan version of the Mini Lily has so been added to my wish list – love that little beauty.

Who: Kate Bosworth

Wearing: A Mulberry fuzzy tiger scoop neck tee in acorn, teamed with studded black shorts, Mulberry black studded sneakers, and finishing off her look is a Mulberry Mini Lily with Tassels in Ink Blue, all from the autumn/winter 2012 collection

Verdict: Can Kate be any more cooler if she tried, I am loving her sexy casual vibe in these tiny studded shorts, which works perfectly with the animal print tee and those hot Mulberry sneakers. I also need to find out where her bright fish earrings are from as I am loving them!!!

Who: Actress of the moment Lily Collins

Wearing: A pale blue stripy straws Neely Mulberry dress, teamed with summer khaki stitched bow ballerina flats, both from the spring/summer 2012 collection, and completing her look is the ink blue Mulberry Lily with Tassels from the autumn/winter 2012 collection

Verdict: This was nearly my best dressed, I love the printed dress, the bag and her fresh face, but I am just not as sold on her shoes. Don’t get me wrong they work perfectly with the look, I am just not loving them, I much prefer the cross strap flats that she is wearing below with Kate.

Who: Dree Hemingway

Wearing: A Dolce & Gabbana chilli pepper-print cotton bustier and skirt from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with very high platform heels

Verdict: Out of all the models who attended the party, which also included Arizona Muse, Tali Lennox, and Cara Delveigne, Dree really captured my attention in this very summery Dolce & Gabbana catwalk look. I am loving that she teamed it with hot red lips – LOVE!!!

So who gets your best dressed vote?

Shop Her Style: Lily Collins Wears Alice by Temperley

Who: Mirror Mirror star Lily Collins

Where: Out-and-about in Los Angeles

Wearing: A wool-blended leopard print Panthera Alice by Temperley scarf, casually teamed with jeans, a jacket and shades

Verdict: This scarf seems to be very popular, Beyonce was spotted wrapping up baby Blue Ivy in it back in February, and I have even spotted one of my favourite fashion bloggers Ella of Coco’s Tea Party wearing it, and I have to admit this is a perfect animal print to rock up any outfit.

Buy Her Style: You can pick up this beauty for just £55 from Temperley London, a great investment scarf as you will wear it all the time.

Abduction: Lily Collins In Versace Resort

Who: Lily Collins, yep Phil’s daughter

Where: At the premiere of her new film Abduction held at Waterloo’s IMAX cinema

Wearing: A black leather Versace dress from the Resort 2012 collection with gold grommet details creating a corsetted effect at the top, teamed with patent Christian Louboutin heels and a gold and black Alexander McQueen clutch

Verdict: I love this look, it is edgy and young, perfect dress for someone in her early Twenties. Her hair on the other hand not so much. I think I would have preferred it if she had slicked it back into a tight bun or even a high ponytail. The dress has so much attitude but her lacklustre locks not so much, this is hair you wear with a long flowing maxi dress, not a bondage-style mini.
