Meet our comfort food soulmate: Gigi Hadid.
As we headed out in the desert to McDonald’s and Pac Sun’s 6th annual Bootsy Bellows Coachella Pool Party Saturday on our Cadillac Coachella Girls Road Trip with lifestyle curators Feven and Helena Yohannes, we saw something glowing in the distance that was like an oasis: golden McDonald’s arches and a pop-up counter doling out quarter pounders, fries, and McCafé smoothies.
And we weren’t the only ones who indulged in comfort food at the poolside event. Gigi went all the way in on the burgers, chowing down on two in minutes flat. “This is her second quarter pounder in three minutes and I can’t say she won’t eat another one,” her sister, Bella Hadid, who also attended bash, captioned a photo of her eating one of the burgers on her Instastory that day.
The afternoon fete was a non-stop party, with guests munching on fries and dancing to DJ sets from the likes of Arkade, Pookie, and model Chantel Jeffries. VIPs like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin lounged in poolside cabanas while Rae Sremmurd performed and attendees hopped on inflatable tubes in the pool (a welcome reprieve from the heat).
There were also plenty of photo opps for the gram, like a flower wall, a mirrored wall, and a swing gif photo booth, where we hopped on swings and kicked up our booties, as an orange wall emblazoned with “Drop it like it’s hot” served as our backdrop.
Those who were lucky enough to get into the bash not only feasted on McDonald’s grub, but they also walked away with a few goodies – LA Hearts bikinis from PacSun and denim jackets.
It was a high-energy bash with dancing, snacking, entertainment, and fun. Needless to say, we were lovin’ it.
