Katie Austin and Christen Harper are not only 2022 co-Rookies of the Year, they’re also total BFF goals. The fitness influencer attended the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this past weekend and served looks in one of Harper’s designs from the model’s recent collection with B Swim.

The 29-year-old wore the Dune Riviera Dress ($88), a mesh gown meant to be worn as a cover-up, and paired it with with a black bralette and cheeky underwear below.

Austin showed off her toned arms and tiny waist in the photos she shared with her 381,000 Instagram followers. She donned fresh, dewy makeup, limited jewelry and tossed her hair up into a half-bun.

“met her at coachella 🤝,” the Los Angeles resident captioned the April 16 post with a quote from Frank Ocean’s song, “Novacane.”

When Austin got engaged to Lane Armstrong earlier this month, she celebrated the milestone with Harper by her side all weekend.

“Are you kidding me,” Harper, 29, commented on the post.

“So so beyond cute 😍 u lil ray of sunshine,” gushed B Swim founder Elizabeth Turner.

“LIVING LIFE!!!!!!! Xoxo,” added mom and fitness icon Denise Austin.

“This whole brand is what you guys represent—fabulous people supporting each other, doing their thing, bigger and better all the time,” SI Swimsuit editor in chief MJ Day explained when she broke the Rookie of the Year news to Harper and Austin last year. “Really motivated, smart individuals that keep creating opportunities for themselves and keep growing. You do it for each other, and you do it for random strangers and you do it for us. It’s pretty awesome. There’s never been two more worthy people.”
