Vanity Fair's Coachella 2016 portrait studio

Coachella, the enormous music festival that kicks off the summer season, is here, and the journey to the California desert has begun. Photographer Brantley Gutierrez and Vanity Fair have set up a portrait studio at the Retreat at Korakia Pensione, in Palm Springs, where actors, celebrities, and musicians will mingle and relax off the festival grounds. With LCD Soundsystem kicking off the first night and Guns N' Roses re-uniting for a performance on Saturday, the festival is guaranteed to be momentous. Maybe even Paradise City?
