Can't Make it to Paris Fashion Week? Here's the Next Best Thing

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just jet set off across Atlantic to see the amazing fashion shows happening at Paris Fashion Week? Just skip class, escape our grim college dorms and not have to worry about midterms? The next best thing we can do (besides daydreaming during class) is follow Instagram accounts of the fashion insiders overseas, and live vicariously through them for the week. Magazine editors, models and style icons all go to the beautiful fashion shows and, lucky for us, document their adventures on social media for us to drool over. Here’s who you should be following to keep up with Paris Fashion Week:

1. Vogue Paris

Who better to start off the list than the world-renowned Vogue? Get ready to see some star-studded pics and nothing less than front row shots from all the shows.

2. Emmanuelle Alt

The Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris is Europe’s version of Anna Wintour. She’s the lady in charge and gets to play an influential role in deciding the season’s trends.

3. Caroline de Maigret

She’s the epitome of Parisian-chic, and a supermodel to boot. Her Instagram account is a fun mix of personal photos of her pets and professional shoots she’s done. She also made an absolutely hysterical video on how to be Parisian.

4. Carine Roitfeld

The former EIC of Vogue Paris, model and writer, this woman has done it all. She now has a website, CR Fashion Book, that features clothes and photographs that she finds interesting and inspiring.

5. Elle France

Another top-of-the-line fashion mag, Elle France’s photos of Paris Fashion Week will take you behind the scenes and show you what kind of magic (and chaos!) happens backstage.

6. Mathilde Laurelli

Mathilde is the genius behind the blog Froggista, where she writes about everything from fashion to marriage to food. The fashion journalist is a Paris native and gets to sit front row at some of the hottest fashion shows. Can we please have her life?

7. Camille Charrière

This London-based blogger focuses her entire blog, Camille Over The Rainbow, around all things fashion. She posts pictures of beautiful clothes on beautiful people (including herself) in beautiful places on her Instagram account.

8. Natasha Goldenberg

Designer/stylist/consultant/mom Natasha is one of the most popular Russian girls in the game. When she’s not designing turbans and sculptural jackets, you can find her casually hanging out with the who’s-who of the European fashion world. Coolest. Mom. Ever.

Paris Fashion Week kicked off yesterday—now is the time to start following these Instagram accounts (we promise, it'll make you feel like you're right in the middle of it all)!
