After rocking the stage in a fedora and cut-offs at the first night of Coachella’s annual three-day festival in California with her husband Jay-Z, Beyoncé Knowles stuck to the same head- and leg-wear the next day. But on day two, Beyoncé sported a loose-fitting tank featuring one of summer’s iconic treats that read “Je T’aime.”

Gwyneth Paltrow

Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is an honorary rocker thanks to her husband, Coldplay front man Chris Martin. The music aficionado took in Jay-Z’s performance during Fourth of July weekend at the Wireless Festival in London in army green shorts and a fashionable, but rather unseasonable black leather jacket.

Lindsay Lohan

Before her summer turned sour with a stint behind bars, Lindsay Lohan had some summer fun at the Music Loves Fashion and House of Hype shows at Coachella in a bandeau navy blue top, washed out short shorts, a rainbow tie-dye scarf and, of course, classic aviator sunglasses.

Rachel Bilson

Though her outfit for the Lacoste pool party at Coachella was not exactly water-resistant, the still-stylish Rachel Bilson looked ready for the sun in her oversized sunglasses, blue leopard tank, Paige Premium Denim cuffed jean shorts, and Joie neutral-shade sandals, reports

Katy Perry

Before performing and hosting the Teen Choice Awards this summer, Katy Perry took in some music at Coachella in one of the summer’s hottest trends—neon. But don’t let the casual camouflage look fool you—Perry’s bright threads came straight from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 runway.

Kate Hudson

To staying cool in the summer heat, Kate Hudson tied up her blonde tresses into a bun and went for a loose-fitting grey tank top, ruffled cream miniskirt, and short suede booties at Coachella.

Kate Moss

She may not have looked appropriate for the season, but Kate Moss certainly seemed rock star chic at Glastonbury, the world’s largest green field open-air music festival. The long-legged British stunner sported ripped fishnets beneath her jean mini-shorts, black mid-calf boots, aviators, and a tank. Moss topped off the look with a loose-fitting military green jacket.

Despite ending her stint as MTV host, former model Alexa Chung was all smiles when she returned to her native country for “Glasto,” as the locals refer to the festival. The style icon showed off her runway-ready legs in a pair of denim cutoffs that she paired with a loose-fitting striped blouse and a leopard shoulder bag.

Hayden Panettiere

The world-saving cheerleader from Heroes took a break from filming Scream 4 in Michigan to head to Chi-Town for some fun at Lollapalooza. Though 20-year-old Hayden Panettiere is still too young to drink at a concert, she looked like she had a blast in her Native American-inspired ensemble with a headband across her forehead, face paint, stacked bracelets, and Ikat scarf.

Zooey Deschanel

The always adorable Zooey Deschanel mustered a nervous smile before taking the stage with her band She & Him at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee in July. The actress-turned-singer rocked her typical 1960s-esque style in this cream and black eyelet ensemble.

Lady Gaga

She may have been the main event on stage, but disco diva Lady Gaga became one with festival goers at Chicago’s Lollapalooza three-day music event in August. She jumped into the crowd wearing nothing but gold star pasties and fishnets—now there’s a sure-fire way to stay cool in the summer heat.
