These days, it’s hard to image fashion without Instagram. Designers, celebrities, bloggers, models —everyone shares their style on Instagram. This year, some big names — designers Alber Elbaz, Marc Jacobs and Donatella Versace — took the plunge, giving us a peek into their exclusive worlds.
Donatella Versace tapped Instagram pro Gigi Hadid to help with her first photo. While on a shoot for the label’s spring ’16 ad campaign, Hadid and Versace took a selfie together. Since then, Versace has posted photos with lots of other famous women, including Madonna, Salma Hayek and Lady Gaga.
Marc Jacobs’ beloved bull terrier, Neville, had his own Instagram account before the designer did:
We’ve also seen David Beckham, Caitlyn Jenner and Prince join the platform. And Adele, whose new album is breaking sales records, has joined at last.
In line with its goal of becoming a more modern monarchy, Kensington Palace now has its own account, featuring the activities of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, including their adorable family photos.
