Whitney Port's Coachella Style Advice: What to Wear, Beauty Products to Beat the Heat and More

Whitney Port Lisa Rose

Now that Coachella weekend one has officially come to a close, we're completely inspired to break out some cool bohemian looks this season, as seen on several stylish attendess, like the lovely Whitney Port.

We scored some one-on-one time with the blond beauty and style icon, who is a regular at the popular music festival for her top tips on fashion and beauty.

Here's what's she shared with us:

What beauty products are always in your Coachella purse?
My phone, of course, will be in my bag and I'll definitely keep a moisturizing lip balm with SPF on hand. I also like to pack an Evian spray or a hydrating toner to keep my skin hydrated and refreshed throughout the day. A roll-on perfume and a compact are perfect for a quick touch-up, and I love the travel-size Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo. It's the perfect size to throw in my bag when my hair needs a little boost of volume at the root, and it smells amazing!

How do you protect your skin and hair from the sun during Coachella?
I let my hair soak up the sun, but my colorist put a gloss on it the day before which he said protects it by sealing in the color. I also use a Jouer tinted moisturizer for my face and use Bare Minerals Powder with SPF 15 to seal it in.

Do you have a favorite hairstyle or accessory for a festival?
I usually wear my hair down with its natural wave. But throughout Coachella weekend, especially in the 100 degree heat, I'm sure I'll want to put it up. I always try and get creative when I need to get my hair out of my face so it still looks stylish, whether I have one of my friends braid it or pull it into a chic top knot.

What's your favorite splurge beauty product? Favorite drugstore product?
My favorite splurge beauty product is any La Prairie face cream—it's so moisturizing and thick. My favorite drugstore product is the new Naked Dry Shampoo from Herbal Essences. I love anything travel-size that can fit in my little bags and it smells so good while making me feel clean!

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Honestly, on average 30 minutes! I try to be low maintenance on any regular day, but if I am getting ready for an event, it usually takes me an hour and a half.

What was your fave outfit this weekend?
My fave outfit this weekend was the Whitney Eve cutout crop top with cameo shorts and Loeffler Randal boots! I loved the monochromatic edgy feeling of this look.

How is dressing for Coachella different than dressing for any other event?
I feel like you can definitely be more daring and out there. People go nuts with style and it is a time to shine and really show off your own personal style. You can bare more and step out of your comfort zone.

What were a few of your favorite fashion looks you saw on other attendees?
I loved the dress that Kate Bosworth wore on Saturday, and the little white dress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore on Friday night! They looked really chic but funky at the same time. 

Any fashion advice you can share with us?
Do not compromise comfort! Wear comfy sneakers or booties and bring a warm layer! It gets really chilly at night.

Among the performers, who had the best outfit on stage?
Definitely Beyoncé's cute little printed number! It was bright and fun and comfy! Just my type!

What was your favorite performance from Coachella?
My favorite performance was probably MGMT. I love their music and it was so nostalgic and fun to dance to. 

Any fun or funny stories you can share from this weekend? What is your top memory?
I have always wanted to go on the big ferris wheel and we finally did! It was so much fun! My face also got blasted from the sand storm! Everyone else was so smart to wear a bandana, my face was covered in dirt by the time I got home! 

Will you go next year?
Yes! I am already planning to go with a group of girls. I love the festival and think it is such a fun weekend for a girls trip!
