We all know Coachella is a textbook study on the desire to wear things that no human should. That typically applies to the crowd who come decked out in ill-fitting, barely-there costumes, spirit hoodies and every piece of tight neon attire imaginable. But artists on stage can commit some cringe-worthy fashion faux pas that make us hope they'll take some of those hard earned Coachella dollars from this weekend and hire a better stylist for Weekend 2.

Here are Coachella's five most questionable famous people fashion statements.

The way the sun catches the fabric on your onstage Coachella attire can make or break the whole ensemble. Not to take anything away from the sparkle of Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes, but when this dress lit up, it made her look more like the NBC peacock.

No one will ever say Maynard James Keenan doesn't know how to dress for shock value. After decades of sporting plenty of outlandish getups, we still weren't ready to gaze at his very earnest attempt to recreate the Beastie Boys "Sabotage" video with this mullet/mustache combo.

Sure, we should all have respect for an established elder statesmen like New Order's Bernard Sumner. But someone who's been around the block should know that wearing your band's t-shirt onstage is a cardinal sin.

For once, it was 2Chainz choice of leather pants, instead of his lyrics, that made absolutely no sense.

We're trying to imagine how R. Kelly chose the Liberace-esque hat that he sported for his surprise (and random as hell) cameo during Phoenix's headlining set. Honestly it looked more like a crown than anything else. We're willing to bet he needed something flashy enough to distract from the fact that he wasn't Daft Punk.
