The first weekend of Coachella 2017 ended yesterday, which means a lot of Hollywood’s young stars are feeling about as fresh as Friday night’s crumpled flower crown this morning.
But while the party may be over, the memories will last a lifetime.
And much more importantly, the Indian hippie cosplay pics are still racking up likes on the ‘Gram.
If you follow Ariel Winter on social media, then you’re probably already aware that 1. Ariel’s giant boobs are her pride and joy, and 2. the actress’ style could best be described as “homeless anime character from the future.”
As you can see, Ariel took the opportunity presented by Coachella to crank her look up to 11 over the weekend.
In the pic above, she seems to be saying, “Come for the barely-concealed double-D’s, stay for the weird pink crotch bunny.”
In the photo below, Ariel is seen answering the question “What would it look like if a pixie from the year 3000 went to a John Steinbeck theme party?”
It seems that for the most part, Ariel’s followers are not fans of her new look:
“You thought you were Kylie,” wrote one fan.
“Celebrity 101 – post lots of pics proving u went to Coachella. Poser. Do any of you actually go to see any of the bands?” commented another.
While the jabs are obviously directed at Ariel specifically, it feels like they’re part of a larger backlash against Coachella in general.
The once-ultra-hip festival is more corporate and less popular with A-listers than ever these days.
And through no fault of her own, it seems the 19-year-old Ms. Winter is just a little late to the Coachella party.
What was once the domain of the top tier of cool young celebs is increasingly a place where thirsty reality and social media stars can go a make a quick buck from an endorsement deal.
Case in point:
Yes, Ariel has a sitcom, but it’s her Instagram page that’s made her an almost-household name.
And she’s clearly intent on squeezing some cash out of her massive following, but there’s a danger in doing too much too soon.
As one of Ariel’s followers helpfully pointed out, she’s not Kylie Jenner, and she’s nowhere near Kylie’s level of fame.
At this point in her career, Ariel should be trying to expand her following, not prematurely cashing in on the followers she already has.
Of course, as long as she keeps wearing see-through clothing in public, she’ll probably have no trouble attracting attention.
