For a while, I had a major Instagram problem: I was following an increasingly excessive amount of accounts. No surprise, most it not all were fashion-related. After staging a mini self-intervention, I decided I had to narrow it down at least a little bit to prevent my ‘following’ count from reaching embarrassing heights. I succeeded in doing so, but ever now and then I have to go back and unfollow a few accounts here and there. Although I love them all, I though it would be fun to share a few of my very favorite fashion Instagram. And, by “favorite” I mean that I am physically incapable of unfollowing them, as eliminating them from my feed may do me serious harm. Enjoy!
@voguemagazine: Okay, this one is a no-brainer. The Vogue‘s Instagram is basically your backstage pass to every fashion show, gala, and fashion event of the year. Get ready for candid pictures littered with celebrities dressed to the nines (did somebody say Met Gala?), previews of editorials to come, and some extremely chic #tbts.
@evachen212: For those of you who are not already following the lovely Eva Chen, Editor-in-Chief at Lucky magazine, you should do so. Like, right now. Ms. Chen is extremely active in social media, so you are guaranteed multiple posts daily, all chronicling her adventures in fashion, food (lots of it), and everyday silliness. Get ready to be striking your best “Eva Chen pose”, because once you go Eva, you never go back.
@bergdorfs: If you love nothing more than staring at pictures of beautiful clothes, this is the account for you. The people behind the iPhone at Bergdorfs upload new, artfully snapped product photos daily. Just by scrolling through their feed you will have to agree that there truly is only one Bergdorf Goodman.
@dvf: Look no further than the DVF account for inspirational quotes, celebrities and fashion insiders alike looking ravishing in wrap dresses, and the occasional heartfelt message from the queen herself, Diane von Fürstenberg. Hands down one of my most favorite feeds.
@baublebar: All you jewelry fanatics out there will loose it over the sparkle-filled BaubleBar Instagram account. Think a feed showcasing the latest necklaces, earring, bracelets, rings, and so on. If it’s fun to look at, the BaubleBar girls have posted it.
@suzymenkesvogue: I originally planned to round this list out at five, but I couldn’t exclude legendary fashion critic Suzy Menkes. Of all the fashion Instagram accounts out there, her’s is perhaps the best insider’s look into the industry. Like a true journalist, Ms. Menkes dutifully documents the atmosphere at every fashion show and event she attends, with her feed full of backstage photos and casual snaps of her “just hanging out” with some of the industry’s biggest names (oh hey, Raf Simons…). All I can say is to follow her, you won’t regret.
So, there they are. My favorite fashion Instagram accounts. Who are your favorites? If you had to make a list, who would it include?
