With millions of users on the site, it would be impossible; or rather time consuming, to follow every fashion Instagram account out there, but you can follow the best. Here is our top 5 list of ‘Fashion Royalty’ to follow right now and whose images will always be worth your time.
You’re probably already following him. If not, do it now and pretend you always were. One of the world’s most renowned photographers, Mario Testino is a fashion world darling and has the Instagram account to prove it. @mariotestino
He’s a fashion editor, writer, best-selling author and Instagrammer all in one. Friend to everyone from Alexa Chung to Karlie Kloss, there’s no shortage of famous faces popping up on this account, as well as snaps of Monster, his Dachshund, and glimpses of his life in the fashion world. @derekblasberg
If it’s backstage sneak peeks you’re looking for then Cara is your girl. Also expect inspirational quotes, hordes of campaign shots and lots of bacon. @caradelevingne
From pics of her fabulously bold and daring outfits to videos from the front row of the biggest shows, Anna Dello Russo’s Instagram offers an insight into her jet-set, designer-filled life as Vogue Japan’s Editor-at-Large. @anna_dello_russo
If there’s one Instagram account I live through vicariously, it’s Alexa’s. She’s impeccably stylish, quirky and knows how to take a selfie and make it look like art. How? @chungalexa
