This week passed marked the annual coming together of 70,000 celebrities, influencers and common folk wearing completely impractical outfits in the middle of nowhere… otherwise known as Burning Man.
The week-long festival held in Navada’s Black Rock Desert is known for its out of this world fashion, and this years’ punters did not disappoint.
The best way to describe it? If a unicorn vomited glitter over a scene from Mad Max.
There were dust-covered platform army boots with more buckles than we could ever deal with.
There were native American feathered head dresses worn by people who may or may not be native American.
There were glitter breasts, braids and face paint, as well as goggles, balaclavas and scary bandit-esque face masks, which we presume served the dual purpose of looking cool and protecting their owner’s… orifices.
This marked my 7th year out at Burning Man. Love it for several different reasons like meeting awesome people from around the world, seeing amazing art, and for all the self realization that goes on for me. Everyone’s burn is different but this year was really great. #burningman #nevada #blackrockcity #desert #pastie #burningman2017 #playa #playaprincess #whitefacepaint
According to Instagram, spending seven days covered in dust is the happening place to be, with celebrities including Paris Hilton, Shanina Shaik, Sara Sampaio and Alessandra Ambrosio in attendance.
And at US $425-$1200 ($A533-$A1500) a ticket, you can see why people go all out.
