It’s safari Barbie in the wild! The boots are closer to waders than “sexy night out” shoes, and the hair extensions are too extreme, even for this wild cat.

She’s time-traveled from 2019 back to an early-Nineties Camden Town nightclub. Between the choker, furry bikini and feathered heels she’s trying to present herself as the original raver. A key ingredient in that look? Her stacked neon VIP wristbands. It’s trashy but fun.

Hennessy Carolina: Fail

The Cruella de Vil-meets-cowgirl is full-on fashion hell — even under Coachella standards. Leather chaps are always a dangerous game — one we like to play, but with caution.

This look is terrible — but very committed. She gets lost in a multitude of retro streetwear references, turning the look into complete costume. However, the razor scooter saves it. Who knew we had a need for speed?

There is nothing original about beat-up jeans with lingerie. Her attempt to channel early Madonna gets a bit of an upgrade with the Vans and the Versace belt. But the statement diamonds make it cheesy.

This moving sunset is very dizzying, and the tie-dye bikini reads more like a diaper. But in a Coachella season when naked was the new clothing, she’s very covered up!

This is very spring break douche bag. The brightly colored bandana is the first offense; but a homemade tank top with a generous helping of side boob is inexcusable. We just hope that his hiking boots take him far away from here.

This is what nightmares are made of. The pastel blue silky robe paired with a matching pant and mirrored aviators evoke a sleazy Miami club promoter from the Eighties.
