Ten best fashion moments on the S.S. Coachella
Earlier this week, the S.S. Coachella took to the high seas and set sail for the Bahamas. One of our esteemed south Florida colleagues had the pleasure of being on board for the cruise's maiden voyage. She sent us a few dispatches documenting some highlights from the trip, so that all of us landlubbers may live vicariously through her words and pictures. Enjoy.
The S.S. Coachella set out to sea this week rather unceremoniously. There weren't horns, not a streamer in sight and no one smashed bottles against the body of the ship. Most of the people we met on the S.S. Coachella had never been on a cruise before. Like us, they weren't so sure what to pack or how to dress for three days of awkwardly saying hi to their favorite bands on a floating building at sea. But, like the festival, the fans also brought their desert style to cruisin' with mixed results. We could sit here and talk about all the "types" of people who sailed out to Nassau, but, really, we'd rather just show you. These are the most memorable fashion moments we caught on the maiden voyage of the S.S. Coachella. Get your eyebrows ready to raise.
10. Best Shorts of All Time
Onstage, Nick Offer of !!! is like a forest fire on a windy day. The heat off his thrusting pelvis is intoxicating. He is the party. And, man, does this guy love his short shorts! As you can see, the ones he wore on the ship have the cover of the Rolling Stones' Some Girls on them. These are actually the best shorts ever made.
9. Totally to Tie Dye for
Can we just say that these two dudes in tie-dye jumpers are wearing Keds and Toms. Cannot think of less raver-y shoes to match these adolescent Burning Man ensembles. They look like giant toddlers with fanny packs.
