We’re into the third week of April 2017 and the sun’s finally out — which means it’s Coachella season again. Held last weekend, Coachella remains a wonderfully well-documented affair as some of the biggest style mavens come together share their free-spirited style.

Lady Gaga electrified the second day of the music festival as the first female headliner, while Aimee Song and Alessandra Ambrosio turned up in their best boho outfits for the occasion.

Meanwhile, Dior’s latest muse is Italian wheelchair fencer, Beatrice Vio, who fought bravely against meningitis at the tender age of 11. Her courage and perseverance perfectly encapsulates the Maison’s message of female empowerment this season.

Read on for more of fashion’s musings on Instagram for April 2017.

“I think Jenny @jennymwalton is always sooo cute but sometimes she strikes an angle that leaves me absolutely inspired! The swimsuit she got last year in Miami but the @isabelmarant top she just bought in Paris at @merciparis with a matching wrap skirt (personally I like it better with the bikini bottom)”
