Yesterday, Instagram launched a standalone app that will put your existing video uploads to shame. Called Hyperlapse, it lets users record time-lapse video from their iPhone®, accelerating footage anywhere from two to twelve times the normal speed. And it didn’t take long for the fashion set to realize it’ll be a handy New York Fashion Week Tool.

Ah, September: the biggest month of the year as far as fashion and our favorite glossies go. We expect magazines to pull out all the stops in these mega issues, and this year they certainly don’t disappoint. Today, Vogue confirmed that its September cover boasts not one, but three of-the-moment models. The interior spread expands to show six more, for a total count of nine dazzling women.

Not only were these cover girls chosen for their prowess in front of the lens, but Vogue also dubs them “the Instagirls,” a generation of social media–savvy models rapidly building their own personal brands. From left to right, you see Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, and Karlie Kloss (all on the cover itself), followed by Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente, and Andreea Diaconu.

The sunny spread, filled with striking fall textiles, was shot by famed photographer Mario Testino. If this layout looks familiar, it might be because ten years ago the magazine also featured nine supermodels (including Gisele Bündchen and Daria Werbowy) on its September issue cover, photographed by Steven Meisel.

With major titles (Vogue and W included) hinting at a new class of top models, I suspect that Karlie and Cara are reaching the level of 90s-era Cindy and Kate. Except now they’re not just household names – their fandom extends throughout the Internet, too.

Ever wish those awkward Tinder convos weren’t part of the whole modern dating thing? Well, you’re not alone. Meet Glimpse, a just-launched app that connects people on Instagram by using shared hashtags, locations, and events.

You probably never thought that a #YOLO obsession could find you a soul mate, but Glimpse begs to differ, pairing prospective couples that share the same mantrasUnlike other social dating apps, this one helps you find partners with common interests, not just those in the same location.

The best part? Minimal creep factor involved. If anyone wants to strike up a conversation, they’ll need your approval. Once you give the go-ahead, chat away about important things, like the hilarity of that #TBT you posted last week.

If you ask me, this has “newest mobile phenomenon” written all over it. And those #FBF baby pics get the whole embarrassing-photos issue over with right away.

We all remember the days of being called to the principal’s office. Whether it was for colorful socks (if you went to private school) or a short skirt, pushing dress-code limits was a part of high school life. But, today? Teenage girls aren’t standing for it.

Earlier this morning, PEOPLE reported sightings of Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp (as if he needs an introduction) and fiancée Amber Heard browsing the poetry section of the well-known Brattle Book Shop in Boston’s Downtown Crossing. Why? Because they’re making a tour of the country’s oldest bookstores? Nope. Depp will be spending the summer in Beantown filming Black Mass, the Warner Bros.–backed story of infamous South Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

And Bostonians, there’s even better news. Boston Magazine has released the filming dates and locations of Black Mass.  And not just the general area, but the exact addresses and street corners. Now, if you’re new to Rue La La, you may not realize that our offices are located in the now-fairly-gentrified South Boston neighborhood. So, will I be proposing a team outing to said street corners? Yes. Yes, I will.
