If you're heading into the desert sun for Coachella in just a few short days, it's time to start packing!
Every year, the festival-fashion meter is raised to a whole new level, so it may be time to step up your style game.
toofab's Rachel Hoffman caught up with Alessandra Ambrosio at the launch of her clothing line ále by Alessandra, to get the scoop on her Coachella fashion do's and don'ts.
From beautifully cut basics to flirty, feminine separates, the stunning supermodel designed a collection that's perfect for the music festival circuit. So, what was her inspiration for the bohemian clothing line?
"The inspiration is my lifestyle. I'm from Brazil but have been living in California for over five years," the brunette beauty explained. "It's a mix of Brazil and Malibu -- it's bohemian chic. I took tips from designers who I've worked with in the past and from places where I've traveled for modeling."
"I always loved fashion," she added. "When I was five years old my godmother was a tailor. I would get the fabrics she wasn’t using and make clothes for my dolls. When I went to school, all I cared about was what I was wearing. I remember it being really, really cold and I would wear super crop tops, not showing my belly, but with high-waist stuff, and my parents would say, 'put some clothes on!'"
The 32-year-old beauty revealed that she's planning to wear her favorite pieces at Coachella this year, so who will she be lining up to see?
"Lana Del Rey, that's a must-see because I've never seen her live," she said. "Outkast too, I've been a fan for a long time."
