Coachella is as much about the fashion parade as it is about the music.

And Katy Perry seized the opportunity to show off her slimline silhouette in a transparent dress.

The Part Of Me singer morphed from pop princess to hippie chick as she stepped out in the floral chiffon creation, with a black bra and matching high-waist kinckers-meet-hotpants beneath.

In keeping with her kooky style, Katy
wore a flower garland in her deep purple hair, coupled with round
Sixties sunglasses and a large red poppy brooch hovering above her
cleavage.

Sensibly she ditched the heels as she opted for flat lace-up boots to challenge the muddy grass.

The 27-year-old credited an eccentric musician, iconic Nineties film and an animation as inspiration.

She tweeted: 'Today's lewk (sic) is sponsored by courtney love, virgin suicides & fern gully #nymph.'

Katy joins a host of famous faces, including Paris Hilton, who have descended on the LA event.

Russell Brand's estranged wife was seen bopping along with the commoners in the mosh pit for M83.

Katy has enjoyed detaching herself from reality for the weekend, by dressing up as other people.

On the first day of the festival,
which kicked off on Friday, she channelled her inner goth by copying
teenage witches from another film classic and also Brittany Murphy's
scruffy character from Clueless.

She
tweeted: 'Pretty stoked about my 90's The Craft meets Garbage meets
Tank Girl meets early No Doubt meets Ty from Clueless lewk 4 dis wknd
#ohmygoth.

'In honor of Friday the 13th The CRAFT is the inspiration for this evenings lewk… #takemyscars #coachella.'

'Take my scars' is in reference to a line from The Craft's screenplay, in which Neve Campbell's character Bonnie suffers from a series of burns on her back and prays for them to disappear.

Perhaps Katy's take on the words were referring to emotional scars following her split from Brand.
