Brilliant Images Of Celebrities In Looks You Wish They’d Wear

1510336502252-dressup4

"Fantasy Dress Up" is an Instagram-turned-magazine documenting the best red carpet looks that never happened (including Hillary Clinton in a pink Louis Vuitton pantsuit).

Kendall and Kylie Jenner: burgundy knit slip dresses from Céline’s pre-fall 15 collection. Britney Spears: shredded denim courtesy of Marques’Almeida spring/summer 12. Helen Mirren as a mossy Marni burlap vision. These award-worthy looks never made it to any best-dressed lists inPeople or US Weekly, because they never actually hit the red carpet. But Richie Talboy and Lucas Lefler, creators of the popular Instagram (since 2014) and now magazine, Fantasy Dress Up, are creating a world in which celebrities have no branding contracts and tremendous sartorial backbone. “In our age, everyone wants a genuine, unique moment to share on social media,”...

The Instagram Unearthing Pics From Your Fave Fashion Mags

@magazine_fan is @dazedfashion’s account of the week

Run by Rosanna Tich – a Hackney-based woman working in public relations, marketing and communication with an encyclopedic knowledge of fashion – @magazine_fan is a digital archive of the pages that make up the last 50 years of fashion publishing. It’s as much a commentary on how fashion, styling and photography have changed over the last half-century years (Tich argues the first has stayed the same, while the latter two – styling and photography – have defined each era), as it is a way for Tich to share her extensive personal collection with those who have requested to dive into it over the years. “While I try and only post photographs and clothes that I like,...

How I Used Instagram To Become a J.Crew Catalog Model

hol17-313-d-web-1509969453 (1)

It all started with a simple little hashtag. After attending J.Crew's fall 2017 ready-to-wear presentation back in February 2017 I created the hashtag #CastMeJCrew because—you guessed it—I wanted to be apart of their next fashion week presentation. You see, I've loved the brand for years now. The way they encourage personal style through pieces that are fashionable, but affordable and not too over-the-top has always been an inspiration. Their preppy-with-a-twist aesthetic really speaks to my Virginia roots and I've been a J.Crew girl for a while.

starting my campaign to model in next season's @jcrew presentation today. Loved everything about it, especially this model and look 🔥#castmejcrew #nikkiforjcrew

This Is The Brand Behind That Polka Dot Wrap Dress You See All Over Instagram

elle-realisation-1509465161

The modern way of shopping is likely familiar: casually scroll through Instagram, and a few rabbit holes later you stumble across a cool girl wearing something you need to buy. A couple more swipes and you suddenly realize every cool girl is wearing the same friggin' thing. That's how Réalisation Par, the Australian-based clothing brand, burst onto the scene: the internet's version of word of mouth. Next thing you know Baader-Meinhof kicked into gear and, suddenly, you saw brand was everywhere.

Family ’Grams: The 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Finalists Compete For The Best Digital Brand Portraits

00-story-image-cvff-2017-finalists-family-instgram-challenge
As they say, it takes a village. This idea rings especially true when it comes to the headaches and heartaches of starting your own fashion label. As the 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists know well, the hardworking people behind the scenes are instrumental components of any living, breathing brand: the seamstresses, patternmakers, suppliers, shipment managers, and of course, the close friends who are always on hand for emotional support. For one of their challenges in the competition, the designers were asked to give a digital shout-out to these individuals through family portrait–style Instagram snapshots capturing those who have helped support and kick-start their businesses. The finalists posted their photographs last night and today. The Instagrams will be judged by Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour and Vogue’s Sally...

The Under-The-Radar Fashion IG Account We’re Obsessing Over

elle-shoe-comp-1509024567
Food made to look like fashion, elementary-aged children dressed with an abnormal amount of sartorial sense, dog anything: Instagram is nothing if not a repository for clickable content. With a solid four years of carefully crafted images scrolling before our eyes (IG was purchased by Facebook in 2012, marking its unofficial birth into mainstream culture), we should all be forgiven for being just a tiny bit jaded. Beyond the sheer volume of it all, it's common for today's square-crop peddlers to count Insta as their full-time gig, a distinction that's helpful to remember if your own posts ever seem a little blah. All of the above explains why we're obsessed with @MonsieurSaturday's feed. Beyond the obvious (shoes!), Monsieur is run by Octavio Platón Akel, an...
