A recent development in festival culture has been the brand trips and influencer fashion trends. While in years past, brand deals have been a bigger aspect of Coachella, with brands like Dote sending squads of teen influencers to the 2018 and 2019 festivals, the influencer aspect of this year’s Coachella has been toned down.

Despite there being less brand trips this year, TikTok’s it girl, Alix Earle, teamed up with Poppi to create ‘Coachearlea’ and introduce Poppi’s new lemon-lime flavor. There was a pop-up Poppi house at the festival, an immersive experience with free Poppi prebiotic sodas. This pop-up and collaboration brought a buzz to social media, as fellow marketers praised Poppi’s immersive experiences and collaboration with Earle. Of course, it would not be an Alix Earle TikTok without her makeup and fashion content, as she posted her outfits that will be sure to set some trends for this festival season. Micro shorts, cowboy boots, and sparkles are sure to be the newest music festival trends for this year, so be sure to start shopping early, if you plan on attending any festivals this year.

Click here to read The Hollywood Insider’s CEO Pritan Ambroase’s love letter to Cinema, TV and Media. An excerpt from the love letter: The Hollywood Insider’s CEO/editor-in-chief Pritan Ambroase affirms, “We have the space and time for all your stories, no matter who/what/where you are. Media/Cinema/TV have a responsibility to better the world and The Hollywood Insider will continue to do so. Talent, diversity and authenticity matter in Cinema/TV, media and storytelling. In fact, I reckon that we should announce “talent-diversity-authenticity-storytelling-Cinema-Oscars-Academy-Awards” as synonyms of each other. We show respect to talent and stories regardless of their skin color, race, gender, sexuality, religion, nationality, etc., thus allowing authenticity into this system just by something as simple as accepting and showing respect to the human species’ factual diversity. We become greater just by respecting and appreciating talent in all its shapes, sizes, and forms. Award winners, which includes nominees, must be chosen on the greatness of their talent ALONE.

I am sure I am speaking for a multitude of Cinema lovers all over the world when I speak of the following sentiments that this medium of art has blessed me with. Cinema taught me about our world, at times in English and at times through the beautiful one-inch bar of subtitles. I learned from the stories in the global movies that we are all alike across all borders. Remember that one of the best symbols of many great civilizations and their prosperity has been the art they have left behind. This art can be in the form of paintings, sculptures, architecture, writings, inventions, etc. For our modern society, Cinema happens to be one of them. Cinema is more than just a form of entertainment, it is an integral part of society. I love the world uniting, be it for Cinema, TV, media, art, fashion, sport, etc. Please keep this going full speed.”
