We're going to make a bold statement here, but as soon as you scroll through the pictures we've rounded up you'll understand why: Derek Blasberg may just be the most-well connected person in fashion—with the best Instagram account on the internet. It's fun to follow brands, models, celebrities, stylists, and designers for behind-the-scenes snaps of your favourite faces and places in fashion, but in Blasberg's world you get all of that in one place and more.
His social fashion and fun-filled life is one in which Zac Posen strolls through the door of a stunning greenhouse flanked by beautiful flowers, smiling like he's happy to see you; where the Delevingne sisters pop bottles at what looks like the best pregame party ever; and one in which Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karlie Kloss, and Joan Smalls make the Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, See No Evil faces while drinking wine on a girl's night that Blasberg is, of course, present at.
Yes, Blasberg is best friends with literally everyone in fashion, and the scenes mentioned above are just the beginning. Breakfast with Bee Shaffer, a house in the country with Lauren Santo Domingo, hang time with Gisele, Halloween with Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, selfies with Gwyneth Paltrow, silly faces with Riccardo Tisci and Gigi Hadid in Paris, carrying Carine Roitfeld on her birthday—Blasberg has access to the most powerful forces in fashion, and brings us sides of them we rarely see.
*It's worth noting that aside from the company he keeps, the gregarious, handsome, jet-setting fashion editor is also super stylish himself.
So, if we haven't sold you on spending some serious time on his incredible star-studded feed, keep scrolling for 45 amazing pictures that should do the trick. We promise an inside look you couldn't have imagined in your wildest dreams.
