You know, aside from your boo boo Leo DiCaprio.

There are still more than 24 hours left of Coachella, but everyone from the civilian festival-goers to the bursting blogger scene to celebrities are calling it: Calvin Klein threw the party of the weekend.

Hosted at an abandoned warehouse in Palm Springs, just a short drive from the festival grounds, the “Desert Sessions” rave (and the In-n-Out Burger truck stationed outside) lured in quite the eclectic crowd. And it was a big one, too, with hundreds dancing the night away to the teeth-chattering bass lines that shook the usually sleepy desert town.

The celeb turnout included painfully hip teens Amandla Stenberg, Jaden Smith and girlfriend Sarah Snyder, classy movie stars like Freida Pinto and Hollywood’s most infamous party boys Kanye West and, yes, even your boo boo Leonardo DiCaprio.

But who made up the other guests? Pret-a-Reporter did a bit of investigating inside the hazy, cigarette/weed smoke-filled warehouse to find out just what it took for a handful of partygoers to get an invite to the swanky affair. Here’s a taste of the influencers Calvin Klein deemed cool enough for the soon-to-be-legendary affair.
