On Friday, a cry went out through the parental-guardian-free fields of Coachella: He who wears dresses has returned!  And so it was that a boy-man known as Jaden Smith took his rightful place as the king of ‘Chella. His kingdom: a vast lawn populated by midriffs and frayed denim. His power: a bracelet of importance. His royal crown: floral. To celebrate his ascent to the upper echelons of teen coolness, he danced about—as they do.

The crown, in hand pre-coronation.
