In Motion: Instagram’s Time-Lapse App Is Perfect for NYFW

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.

Drumroll, Please: Marc by Marc Jacobs Contest Winners Announced

In April, Marc Jacobs set out to find new models via Twitter. And yesterday, the nine (beyond-lucky) winners were revealed in his Fall 2014 campaign. The shots are bold, energetic, and beautiful, but warning: they will induce major jealousy. For all of us non-winners? I say we hold a virtual rain dance in hopes of more social media casting calls in the future.

Tom Ford Calls Rihanna’s Instagram the Most Important Thing in Fashion

@Badgalriri’s #1 fan? Tom Ford – which is surprising, considering this is the same designer who used to ban cell phones from his super-exclusive runway shows.

But apparently, Gucci’s former leading man is starting to recognize the importance of social media in the fashion world. In an interview with Style.com, Tom claimed that celebrity Instagrams are now more important than media of the past. Said Tom:

Customers don’t care anymore about reviews or hard-copy publications. They care what picture Rihanna just Instagrammed while she’s naked in bed, what new shoes she has on, how she’s talking about them. That’s what they respond to.

Is he on to something? Only time will tell. But the real question here is whether Tom’s fandom is enough to make RiRi resurrect her Instagram. Because I for one miss her antics. (But could do without the bed shots.)

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

Right now, our Fashion Director, Jackie Nasser, and her (very lucky) team are at New York Fashion Week taking notes on all the latest runway trends. Back at the Boston offices, the rest of us are getting our NYFW fix via Livestream and Pinterest. Thank goodness for social media.

1. Shout-out to Paris, because we wouldn’t have NYFW otherwise.

2. Like it or not, fashion is all about picking favorites.

3. After all the time spent creating their collections, these designers more than deserve a bow at curtain call.

4. Fact: There’s always just as much style outside the tents as there is inside on the runways.

5. If Anna Wintour doesn’t show up, is it even NYFW?

Can’t get enough Pinterest inspiration? Check out past boards that caught our eye.

Your Momma’s Got Style

Prove it for a chance to have her featured on our login page

Mom Style

We’ll cut right to the chase: we’d be lost without our moms. Not to mention our aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and all the other women out there who have paved the way to great style by making sure we didn’t leave the house sporting a pair of flannel PJ pants.

So this Mother’s Day, we’ve figured out the best way to say thanks: by proving to the world that her style’s unrivaled.

Send us a photo of your mom’s impeccable style or tweet us her best fashion advice to put her name in lights – or at least the chance to appear on our login page or social media channels. You can submit your photos and advice via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #momstyle.

We have a feeling this is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t soon forget.

The ReTweet: 5 Style Bytes You May Have Missed

@ManRepeller: Give me plaid pants or give me death
Now this sounds serious.

@The_Meek: Gmail is back. One day I’ll tell my grandkids how I didn’t have email access for about 4 minutes.
And how, as a result, the entire interwebs almost shut down in fear. 

@elementstyle: I am so loving Anne Hathaway’s pixie. Wish I had the balls (and bone structure).
Ditto. What we don’t wish for, though? Her extreme diet for Les Miz.

@katiearmour: true friends text you photos of @RyanGosling when you’re having a bad day
Better friends send you YouTube links of his best movies to watch at work.

@RebelWilson: I am going to go on a new cleanse – my weekend cleanse of cutting everything out of my diet except for chocolate DID NOT WORK! …
Maybe that’s where we went wrong, too…
