Meet Our Coachella Community Correspondents

We're thrilled to announce that members ilianavilla and vanessanataly are this year's Coachella Community Correspondents! Ilianna and Vanessa can't wait to give you all the inside scoop on awesome bands, fashion trends and hot celebrity style at Coachella. Be sure to visit Polyvore for all the up-to-date Coachella action, and be the first to shop all the hottest looks!

Here's more about the members:

Hello, my name is Iliana Villa. I am 20 years old and a Polyvore devotee. I began using Polyvore about four years ago and became a fashion addict. I love fashion -- clothes and accessories are an obsession. And I love accessories! They are a huge part of the fashion world for me. My motto is, "You can never go wrong with a necklace.”

I am also a musician. I mainly play the drums, but I also play guitar. I’m in a band, VK Villa Kids, with my four sisters and my brother. We just recently signed with a label and will begin touring very soon.

I am so thankful to Polyvore for choosing my sister and me to go to Coachella. We’re fashion lovers and music lovers, and it's such a great opportunity. Thank you, Polyvore!

Which band are you most looking forward to seeing?
There are many great bands this year, but one of my favorites is Muse. I am a huge fan and I've never gotten the chance to see them live. This is my chance!

What are you most excited to report back to the Polyvore community?
Every year I see pictures of the fashion from this festival. This year, I am really excited to report all the different trends in person.

Who you are hoping to spot at the festival?
I know Coachella is a huge festival and every year dozens of celebrities take the time to attend. Last year I saw that Emma Watson went. I am a huge Emma Watson fan, so hopefully I’ll get to spot her.

My name is Vanessa Villa and I am a full-time musician and fashion junkie from Southern California. I am currently in a band with my siblings and we are soon to begin our first promotional tour for our first studio album.

Which band are you most looking forward to seeing? 
I am a huge music aficionado, so I am excited to hear all of the bands performing at the festival.  However, I am especially excited about  Grouplove, Queens of the Stone Age, Pharrell, Arcade Fire, Beck, The 1975 and The Head and The Heart.

What are you most excited to report back?
I want everyone to be experiencing the festival as we are. I am quite excited to report back as much coverage of the festival as I can such as the biggest trends, celebrity sightings and the hottest music. 

Who are hoping to spot at the festival?
It would be awesome if I had the chance to spot any one of my celebrity crushes, especially, Cara Delevingne. I think I'd be fortunate and star struck if I happened to cross paths with any celebrity in general.
