Let’s get something out of our system; Instagram is a mess these days. You literally don’t know who’s real anymore and who is not. You can come across accounts with 50K followers and a lot of likes, but the most ugly and uninteresting pictures you’ve ever seen. When you dig a little deeper into those accounts, you often see that the majority of it is fake as fuck. We strongly support faux-fur, but faux-followers and likes is something we hate.

Instead of whining about fake people, we’ll show you some people on Instagram who are a 100% real and super inspiring to us. Give them a follow if you want to have a laugh or if you’re in need of some serious fashion inspiration!

We discovered @avanope a while ago, when she made a sweater with Gucci’s logo on it. She made headlines with the fabulous sweaters she makes. But it’s not just the sweaters! Her style is daring and very inspiring to us.

Andreja Pjic

Hi Middle America lol

Next up is @andrejapjic. Before completing her transition into womanhood in late 2013, Pejić was known as the first completely androgynous supermodel. Today, she is the most recognisable transgender model in the world. Her style is something we adore at ENFNTS TERRIBLES!

Alexander Wang

We all know Alexander Wang, the brand. The man behind the eponymous brand is Alexander Wang himself and he’s at least as interesting as the clothes he makes! The Instagram photo above, for example, is one of the designer’s recent posts about Philipp Plein copying his work. Apart from that, he has the funniest memes on his account!

Jordan Barrett

The instagram account of @iblamejordan is something we are OBSESSED about. This guy has it all. He’s hot, he travels the world, he has the most famous and coolest friends… there’s nothing not to be jealous about. On top of that, his style is iconic. It’s our dream to shoot an editorial with this super model. Definitely worth a follow!

Elena Vasilieva

This is the underdog of this list. @elenavasilieva is a super talented and fashionable lady who’s living in Belgium at the moment – yes indeed, Belgians do it better. She does things that haven’t been done before and that’s something we admire the most. Elena’s style is on another level and we truly believe she is an upcoming instagram star.

Hari Nef

Hari Nef is a true icon. The New York-based model walked her first shows in 2015, walking for both Hood By Air and Eckhaus Latta. She is a transgender and she isn’t afraid of talking about important trans issues. In the photo above, she photoshopped her nipples to open a discussion about Instagram’s nipple policy.
