After a 2-year hiatus, Coachella returned to the desert putting music’s biggest acts center stage — along with a hefty helping of festival fashion. Performers included Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, The Weeknd, Anitta, Harry Styles, Doja Cat and many more. The festival was as much about the performances as it was about the parties, people and places.
