How To Pack For A Music Festival Like a Victoria's Secret Angel Lily Aldridge
This is the cult highlighter Lily uses to acheive a heavenly glow.
As Coachella kicks off with weekend one, thefashionelites are ready to show off their very best desert denim and boho-chic looks. We caught up with Victoria's Secret AngelLily Aldridge ahead of the festival (where she met her husband, Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, 11 years ago this weekend) to see what she can't go to Coachella (or any music festival) without.
"Coachella has a special place in my heart," the supermodel tellsInStyle U.S. "I remember exactly what I was wearing when I met Caleb, it was denim cut off shorts, a white tank top, a brown [bum bag], and Converse—he always teases me about the [bum bag]."
Aldridge says she's been rocking the [bum bag] look well before style stars like Kendall Jenner made them cool. "I've always been very comfortable in sneakers, denim, tank tops, and a fanny pack at music festivals because I'm running around having fun, and I like the fanny packs because they leave my hands free to dance."
And dance she does. Aldridge says that aside from meeting her husband at Coachella, her favorite festival moment ever came when she had the chance to be on stage and dance it out while Empire of the Sun performed. "I remember being a kid going to Coachella, and then that year I was actually on stage watching them," Aldridge says. "I was just like blown away how amazing it is to look at the crowd and feel the people."

Create the perfect style to make you look and feel your best for your own favorite festival memories—"You never know, you might meet your wife or husband there!"
The bum bag is perfect when you just want to leave your hands free to dance like Aldridge. "I love that [bum bags] are so in right now, and I love the Isabel Marant [bum bag]. I'd totally wear it with my Levi's, full denim look with the [bum bag]over my shoulder and a pair of cool sneakers," Aldridge said. "I think that is always a good look."
Aldridge likes a simple makeup look for festivals with a little highlighter to enhance her glow. "I think like a highlighter on your cheek is always beautiful because you're running around and sweating," Aldridge said. "If you had like full glam I feel like it's too much."
No one likes runny mascara, but beating the heat at music festivals cam prove tricky. Aldridge likes this Tarte mascara that she says keeps her lashes looking full and fresh all day. "[At music festivals], you're really sweaty and you're dancing and you don't want your mascara dripping down your face," Aldridge says. "I've made that mistake so many times at concerts."
