Hayden Panettiere's Festival Dressing MO: 'Face Paint Helps Me Get Through Large Crowds'

If you have Coachella FOMO, you’re not alone. Hayden Panettiere wasn’t able to attend this year’s festival, but she was happy to talk about what she’d wear if she was there (and reminisce about some of her rowdy desert-hopping, crowd surfing days).

“I would find something really wacky. It’ s a free-for-all, and I love it,” she told PEOPLE at a recent event for her latest Neutrogena campaign. “I love to be very hippie-boho — feathers and Woodstock-y. Sometimes I’ll do face paint at music festivals, which helps me in a lot of ways getting through large crowds. I remember one year — I think it was actually Bonnaroo — we got this really cheap face paint and nothing else. I painted this multicolored butterfly on one side of my face and with mascara, I took a brush and made her body the head along my nose and the body came down across my face with antennas above my eyebrows. So one side of my face was a butterfly and it came out so good. And a headband and fringe and chopped up t-shirts. Basically, whatever you want.”

And while the Nashville star doesn’t knock crop tops, she said she’s not the type to wear them out in situation where lots of photos may be snapped.

“I like crop tops, but I like crop tops with high-waisted skinny jeans or shorts,” she shared. “Unless you have a really flat stomach … I do not feel like putting that much thought into sucking it in. I cannot be bothered. There are some people that have no fat on their stomach that can get away with it — any way they bend, it’s fine. But the last thing I want is to be bending over and have somebody take a picture and then they’re like, ‘Hayden gains a roll! Hayden rolls at Coachella!’ That could be the headline.”

We love that the bride-to-be can poke fun of herself, but trust us, we’ve seen her in person, and there aren’t any rolls happening. What do you think of her festival dressing tips? What would you wear to a music festival like Coachella? Share your thoughts below.

Kate‘s fashionable tour accelerated in Australia with a three-outfit day on Sunday — including two repeats of favorite dresses from past years.

At her trip to the Sydney zoo (where Prince George got to preside over the unveiling of a bilby exhibit named for him), the Duchess of Cambridge wore a boatneck pastel yellow eyelet dress by independent designer (whom the palace hasn’t named). She last wore the dress (with the same Stuart Weitzman wedges) during the royal tour to southeast Asia in 2012.
