Ryzenberg On: Music Festival Fashions
As the temperature heats, so do the outdoor activities and one of the most popular music festivals is just around the corner — Coachella!
Once the lineup was announced a few months ago, tickets sold out within minutes (for both weekends) and I missed on my chance to see my all-time faves Radiohead, Bon Iver, Florence + the Machine and many other musical masterpieces.
But just as important as the acts, are the outfit choices. Although A-listers and fashionistas flock to these festivities, the desert gets hot and the right attire and accoutrements are indeed needed (hello sunscreen) so here is a checklist of a few bare necessities needed to survive one of the 2012’s most popular events:
Haute Hippie Racer Back Maxi Dress — www.netaporter.com
Michael Kors Raffia & Leather Backpack — www.netaporter.com
Mulberry Bayswater Flat Sandals — www.mulberry.com
ALEX AND CHLOE All My Heart Studs — www.alexandchloe.com
Dries Van Noten by Linda Farrow Printed Sunglasses — www.lagarconne.com
Rag & Bone Oversized V-Neck Tee — www.lagarconne.com
J BRAND Cutoffs in Tangerine — www.ottenyc.com
Crochet Floppy Hat — www.wetseal.com
Heart Heart Heart Printed Scarf — www.openingceremony.us
Pull and Bear Charmed Bracelets (pack of 15) — www.pullandbear.com
Philosophy ‘Here Comes the Sun’ SPF 30 Sunscreen — www.nordstrom.com
All Saints Vintage Lace Up Boot — www.allsaints.com
Also, remember that some of these items can be used at Bonaroo, Outside Lands (remember — layering up is KEY as Golden Gate Park gets chilly) and many other festivals worldwide. 
Enjoy and for those of use indulging in some heavy partying in Palm Springs, say hello to my therapist (although he doesn’t know it) Thom Yorke! In my world, everything is a little bit better with a Radiohead dosage!

Ryzenberg On: Grammys’ Sweet Fashions

Jessie J in Julien Macdonald - The popstar chose a gown with a wow factor and plenty of mirror appliques. Perfect for the Grammys as the look is playful, yet elegant. 

Carrie Underwood in Gomez-Gracia - The country cutie shined in a backless gown from all sides. She also paired the dress with dangly earrings and a Rene Caovilla black clutch.

Rihanna in Armani - Hands down the sexiest gown of the night. RiRi collaborated with Mr. Armani for this look, which channeled a 1970s vibe reminiscent of the days at Studio 54. The dress had a striking deep V-neck and a very bold slit. 

Nicki Minaj in Versace - She sure made an entrance…but not for the right reasons. The performer wore an Atelier Verace cape and was escorted by a bishop. This sure was attention grabbing, but by no means was it classy as it turned out to be tacky and very much like a costume.

Lily Aldridge in Gucci - The pregnant model was glowing this Gucci maxidress as she supported her husband, Kings of Leon, Caleb Followill. She completed the look with black pumps and hoop earrings.

Adele in Armani - The night’s big winner flaunted her curves in an Armani gown and baubles from De Beers and Harry Winston. She was also sporting Louboutin heels, and her hair and makeup are stunning. This is how a star should always look like.

Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier - Fresh of the haute couture runway, Fergalicious is certainly on the Tangerine Tango trend. I like the dress, but not sure the see-through underwear works. She accessorized with Neil Lane jewels. 

Kate Beckinsale in Zuhair Murad - The actress chose a little cream number cinched at the shoulder with a black bow and Salvatore Ferragamo pumps. She definitely flaunted her one of her best assets, her legs, and looked sexy while on the red carpet.
