How Celebrities Do Burning Man

The man at this year’s Burning Man has gone up in flames. The annual festival, which takes place in Black Rock City, NV, about two hours from Reno, is winding down. Saturday night saw the burning of the actual Burning Man. Up for Sunday is the burning of the Temple. During the festival, residents of the pop-up city leave notes and messages in the structure, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal. The torching of the Temple itself is the grand finale.

Reportedly 70,000 people have descended on the desert to create the temporary city. “It’s a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience,” says the Burning Man website.

Every year, those citizens include some of our more adventurous celebrity favorites. This year, familiar faces such as Katy Perry and Cara Delevingne posted pics from the festival and it's all neon, braids, and confidence. And Paris Hilton as She-Ra, of course.

Click through to see those and some more of our other favorites who dropped in to drop out.

In his caption for this Instagram post, Scott Eastwood recommended Burning Man to "anyone who wants a life-changing cultural experience that will expand your mind."

That seems to be exactly what he's doing here with Cara Delevingne.

Poppy Delevingne opted for only two braids instead of four, like her sister, Cara, in this picture from Laura Polko. More modest Mad Max.
