Favourite fashion Instagrams: designer dogs, Joshua Tree & triple denim

Each week we take delight in scrolling social media, sharing our favourite fashion posts that inspire, educate, and entertain.


Known for both her wit and flair, Chrissy Teigen shares with us a moment after the Vax Live concert, wearing a couture gown by Valdrin Sahiti.

Confessing to messing up her lines at the concert, we admire Teigen’s ability to tell it like it is to her 34.7 million followers. 


Standing in her local book store, Emma Roberts is an avid reader and co-founder of online book community Belletrist. She’s highlighting a recent Valentino x Belletrist campaign, The Narratives, which supported nine independent bookstores across the United States.  


Model Adut Akech is living our wanderlust dreams in Tulum, wearing a striking green crochet bralette and matching fringed skirt. A favourite vacation spot for Akech, she has us awaiting Resort 2021 with anticipation. 


Fashion-forward Insta-dog Boobie is going on a Louis Vuitton safari, and we hope we’re invited. Previously seen in Fendi and Chanel, we’re already wondering which designer Boobie will feature next.


Everyone loves a #FBF (flashback Friday), and Vera Wang has done just this by posting a snap of her 2021 Chinese New Year celebrations.

Born in the year of the Metal Ox, Wang graciously wishes luck to her fellow oxes around the world. If you’re born in 1961, 1973, 1985 or 1997, that means you! 



Australian style muse Brooke Testoni shows us how smart-casual is done, pairing an edgy Les Coyotes de Paris dress with Chanel sandals and a bag from her own label, Rylan. 


Queen of cakes Jordan Rondel poses with her lemon strawberry poppy seed cake kit. Styled by Henna Koskinen and photographed by Elizabeth Barclay, Rondel’s vibe is sweet and sassy – just like her legendary cakes.


Wearing a cozy cream bucket hat and half knit sweater by Weekend Stories, New Zealand-born model Maia Cotton is furthering our love for loungewear, all the way from New York.


As well as her recent birthday, Lizzo has much to celebrate, given that her album Cuz I Love You hasn’t left the Billboard charts since its release two years ago.

While the singer appears to be boarding a jet to her next destination, don’t be fooled by the spontaneity of her post: her full monogram look was both styled and photographed for Balmain. 


Italian fashion blogger and entrepreneur Chiara Ferragni proves you can’t go wrong with pink, and her giant bouquet has us counting down till peony season.


If you’re in need of adventurous makeup looks and joyful captions, Halsey’s Instagram feed is the place to be.

Basking in the sunshine and rocking a soft smokey eye, Halsey and her baby bump are simply glorious.


Standing in Joshua Tree National Park, California, Vanessa Hudgens wears a suit by Jonathan Simkhai and stiletto-heeled boots by Schutz.

Snapped by pal and professional photographer Vince Rossi, the photo proves that you can find inspiration anywhere, even in the middle of the desert.


Elle Ferguson does triple denim in Dior heels, a Prada bag and Ksubi skirt, paired with a tailored blazer by Magda Butrym and a tank by Anine Bing. 

When we’re not browsing Ferguson’s Instagram for style cues, we’re listening to her podcast, Sliding Doors with Elle Ferguson. A worthwhile resource, Elle speaks to infuential figures in the fashion industry about their ‘sliding door moments’, the advice they wish they’d been given at the start of their careers, and other valuable insights.
