ZOEasis 2019 Started Coachella Weekend Off Right — Here's Everything That Went Down

Share

Like clockwork, every year, millions flock to the Palm Springs desert to indulge in the extravaganza that is the Coachella Music Festival. And for the past five years, also like clockwork, The Zoe Report kicks off the party with a chic desert soirée: ZOEasis. The annual event has steadily built a name for itself as an aesthetically pleasing feast for the eyes — in more ways the one. This year's ZOEasis, for example, pulled out all the stops, transporting guests to the French Riviera via picturesque backdrops, refreshing and decadent cocktails, and — of course — all the charcuterie and French pastries one could indulge in.

Yes, the annual bash featured all the perks and amenities of a St. Tropez getaway, sans pricey airfare and accommodations. Bottomless frosé, luxe lounging, and even faux-tanning (for those wanting that vacay glow) were at attendees' fingertips, placing them in the lap of desert luxury. The chic party perks were not lost on guests, who took full advantage of their surroundings, and lived like the French (and tourists) do.

Amidst the mingling, sipping, and endless photo-ops, came a few priceless moments that must be documented and discussed. From TZR founder Rachel Zoe's sweet photo op to Kiernan Shipka's crafting moment, here's a quick play by play of all the goings on at this year's ZOEasis extravaganza.

French-Themed Photo Ops Were Aplenty

In line with the Riviera theme were the strategic photo ops that met guests as soon as they entered the ZOEasis venue. From the charming wooden chateau-inspired front door to the stunning French flower market photo wall, Instagram was definitely ablaze with ZOEasis imagery.

Kiernan Shipka Got Crafty

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Kiernan Shipka put her craft hat on at the Rocketman station, creating bedazzled sunglasses Elton John would surely approve of.

Equally Instagrammable Refreshments

After the French-themed photo walls, the frosé drinks provided by Sunseeker Rosé were probably the second most-Instagrammed item on the ZOEasis menu.

Shopping Was Done

It wouldn't be a TZR party without some proper shopping options, which Zappos delivered on. The brand offered a taste of the créme de la créme of its festival style pieces available on site now.
