Before joining us at Coachella, Lexee Smith answers a couple questions.
It’s almost time for Coachella, the first and one of the most important music festivals of the summer. The 2016 edition, once again a two-weekend affair, is packed with an all-star lineup which includes Calvin Harris, Flume, Disclosure, Halsey, Sia, Ellie Goulding, Jack Ü, Zedd, A$AP Rocky and tons more. The only thing that rivals and, arguably, tops the music at Coachella are the celebs, the fashion, and the hype surrounding all of that. New trends are born as both festival attendees and brands push the limits of style and show off their latest collections.
My key items to pack are my camera, sunscreen, and of course the cutest outfits I will ever wear in my entire life! Coachella is all about having the best outfit!
This year we head to Indio, California with four incredible west coast girls, all unique in their own way. One of these girls is Lexee Smith, one of the hottest up-and-coming It Girls. We’re calling it. You might recognize her as a former member of the dance team Latin Flavah or her appearance in Abby’s Studio Rescue. Originally from Texas, the 15-year-old dancer/actor/fashionista moved to Los Angeles in 2013 and continues to be a fashion and lifestyle inspiration for girls. Follow her fun-filled life on Instagram (she’s even friends with our fave Larsen Thompson!) and check out her YouTube videos for beauty and fashion tips, and lots of laughs!
Before heading to the desert, we asked Lexee Smith a few questions about herself and how she’s getting ready for Coachella.
What are the key items to pack for Coachella?
My key items to pack for Coachella are my camera, SUNSCREEN, and of course the cutest outfits I will ever wear in my entire life! Coachella is all about having the best outfit!
Where do you get your style inspiration?
I get my fashion inspiration from a lot of things!! I like to find pictures online from fashion in previous decades. Pretty much everything in fashion makes a comeback. Another thing I like to do is look at pictures from NYFW. Every show is pretty much spot on, and the people attending always have a bomb outfit!
How do you get dressed in the morning?
To be honest, most of my getting-ready process is taken up by picking out the perfect outfit. I’m such a perfectionist when it comes to fashion.
What are 3 makeup essentials?
My top three makeup essentials are brow gel, concealer, and mascara!
What are some key tactics you use when posting to Instagram?
You must have good lighting, a cute background, a bomb outfit, and a filter that makes the picture 100 times better!
When did you start dancing?
I started dancing when I was 5! My favorite thing about dance is the feeling you get when doing it! You just feel so free!!
What’s the best song to dance to?
Let’s be real, we all know that every girls favorite song to dance to is “Work” by Rihanna. There is literally no way to not dance when it comes on the radio.
