After oh so long, Coachella is back and bigger with lots of surprises you didn’t see coming. Cue in K-Pop queens 2NE1 making a surprise performance and Billie Eilish bringing out Hayley Williams to sing Misery Business. Who would’ve thought that icons from the late 2000s would be the biggest headliners out of everyone? It wasn’t just the music icons that were present, Coachella 2022 was filled with stunning Y2K looks that were worn by our fave Filipino stars that took over the desert this weekend. Scroll down to see everyone from Bella Poarch to Vanessa Hudgens.
1. BRETMAN ROCK
Everybody say, Bretchella! Out of all the looks that Bretman Rock slayed at Coachella 2022, this was by far the boldest one that he wore. The bleached Diesel look from day one and all pink sparkly Y2K ‘fit from day two may have been cute, but Bretman’s day three Ottolinger head-to-toe slime green look was hard to miss. A hoodie that doubled as capelet, utility bag turned top and Coperni mini bag is probably one of Da Baddest’s best looks.
2. BELLA POARCH
We are now entering Bella Poarch‘s Spice Girl era. Her day two and three looks were darker, graphic, and more daring like her usual style, but Bella’s day one outfit still lives in our heads rent-free. It was giving Malibu Barbie, but on steroids—the good kind, of course. The fur bra and leg warmers were the icing on the cake.
3. KELSEY MERRITT
Filipina supermodel Kelsey Merritt nailed the classic Coachella look all weekend. Knee high boots, crochet all day, and denim cut-offs. It might be a good time to bring ’em back!
4. KIANA VALENCIANO
Kiana V’s Euphoria High moment at Coachella 2022 had us weak on the knees for season three. Ironically, her cut-out top and black leather pants was in contrast to the all white outfit she wore previously that gave off low-key Cassie vibes.
Safe to say that Beabadoobee slayed the boots house down quite literally this Coachella weekend. We’re definitely here for her new era, especially in that immaculate corset top and her performance that gave us ~emotional damage.~
6. DJ NOODZ
A wise philosopher once said, “thicc thighs save lives,” and they’re absolutely right. Kehlani’s Filipina DJ (also known as Micah Mahinay) wearing nothing but a blue bikini and micro mini skirt while flaunting her morena complexion just gave us all the feels.
7. VANESSA HUDGENS
What would Coachella even be without the presence of the Patron Saint herself? The desert just got even hotter when Vanessa Hudgens showed up and proved to everyone why she remains the undefeated queen of looks at the music festival. From boho to rave outfits, the Fil-Am actress was obviously the standout of the show. Because let’s be real, what would we do without Queen V?
Filipino streamer Valkyrae bared it all just in time for Coachella 2022 and we’re not complaining. Now, where do we buy those crochet pants? RIP tan lines, but we’d do anything for the ‘Gram.
9. RAISSA GERONA
Raissa Gerona, the Filipina HBIC of fashion brand REVOLVE’s marketing team channeled style icons like Britney Spears with her Y2K denim look, and Rihanna with her naked dress. A total stunner.
10. NICOLE SCHERZINGER
When we grow up, we wanna be like Nicole Scherzinger. The Filipina singer sure knows how to switch it up from looking like a living Bratz doll to her sultry Western outfit. The million dollar question remains: how on earth does this lady not age?
