Woman Crush Wednesday: Olivia Wilde

Okay, so she’s one of the most sexy and badass women in Hollywood, an advocate for animals, funny lady, and rocked the sexiest baby bump at the Golden Globes this year. What’s not to love? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. But, we must say we adore Olivia even more now that we’ve seen her don our Mocky Mocks! She can do no wrong.

Coachella Playlist: MGMT

Who doesn’t love some MGMT? These guys have been killing it for years! Lately their sound has evolved into something different, but it still retains the familiarity we’ve come to love from the boys. We are stoked to see the tunes come to life soon at Coachella. Check out the video to one of our favorite new songs by them!

7. MGMT: “Cool Song No. 2″

Okay, but really… Who’s ready for Coachella!? #cantwait

Coachella Playlist: Blood Orange

Dev Hynes is the mastermind producer behind Sky Ferreria’s “Everything is Embarrassing” and Solange’s “Losing You” but he does pretty badass all on his own under the stage monicker Blood Orange. We love the vibe of his new album Cupid Deluxe. Can’t wait to see him shred at Coachella this year!

6. Blood Orange: “Chamakay”

#WCW: Anna Kendrick

Okay, it’s a well known thing, funny women rule. But what about when that funny woman can also act, sing, and dress to kill? Anna Kendrick definitely falls under that category! We got to spend time with her last month at the Sundance Film Festival, and are so happy to confirm she is a grade a sweetie and humble to boot! What’s not to crush? We love her in movies like the Up In The Air, the Twilight saga and Pitch Perfect. This Woman Crush Wednesday is dedicated to her.

Random Anna Fact: “I rarely get recognised. It’s always a shock when someone notices me. I always think they must be confusing me with someone else.” – Anna Kendrick

Coachella Playlist: CHVRCHES

We’re super into Chvrches front woman, Lauren Mayberry’s style. We love how she pairs her rock and roll vibe with flawy dresses and playful prints. And her sweet melodic voice? I mean… <3 When this single first came out we were jamming to it in the office and are now so excited to go see them play live at Coachella this year! Who are you most excited to go see?

5. Chvrches: “The Mother We Share”

Coachella Countdown Playlist: Ellie Goulding

The video for Ellie Goulding’s latest single “Goodness Gracious” is the perfect combination of cute, fun, and psychedelic. We love the colors and styling shown… plus, how adorable is Ellie?! She’s our #tuesdaytune for the week as we countdown to Coachella!

4. Ellie Goulding: “Goodness Gracious”

Vanessa Hudgens Goes Boho Grunge in her Koolaburra Tasso Wedges

Vanessa Hudgens played it coy with photographers after leaving a Pilates class in Studio City today. Vanessa embraced a boho-grunge vibe in a black leather jacket, black spandex pants, blue checkered flannel shirt tied around her waist, and her rocker Koolaburra Tasso Black Wedges. Vanessa is receiving rave reviews for her recent performance in the dramatic new movie “Gimme Shelter.” We love this look! How do you wear boho?

Coachella Countdown Playlist: Solange

Today’s #tuesdaytune from the 2014 Coachella line up is by Solange Knowles. Now, many still know her as the Queen B of Hip Hop Beyonce Knowles’ little sister… but ever since she released her hit single “Losing You” last year, we have not been able to get her off of our minds!If you’re Indio bound for the festival this season, you won’t want to miss her set!

3. Solange: “Losing You”

Oh, and the outfits in this music video? Beyond.

Enjoy!
