Vogue caught up with singer Florence Welch at Coachella last weekend and spoke to her about her early Coachella experiences, her festival emergency kit and what she wore on stage.
Her first trip to Indio wasn't a glamorous one: she stayed in a tiny apartment with seventeen other people and had to crash outside on the balcony. Now, as a headliner, Welch rooms at a nearby luxury hotel. She told the magazine that her desert essentials include Claritin, saline nasal spray, lipstick she picked up at a gas station and nail glue because she's "recently gone into a lady phase" and is "obsessed with having lady nails."
