best of snapchat
Without intention, I’ve been something of an unofficial spokesperson for Snapchat over the past year. The second anyone starts asking me about social media (this happens at least daily) I begin to wax lyrical about the 24-hour social network and thus find myself in a ridiculous number of ‘first snaps’.

Unlike other platforms, Snapchat is virtually unedited (barring text and scribbles). This creates an infectiously engaging and authentic view of the world through our favourites’ eyes…so let’s get you some new ones…

Who to Follow on Snapchat

CornettoSnaps: I am currently working with Cornetto to promote their brand new Snapchat – launching with Vine star Ben Phillips this Wednesday! With their digital conversation booming around the subject of ‘breaking the ice’, the nation’s beloved ice cream brand have enlisted Ben to spend the afternoon chatting girls up – as cheekily as he can – at Winterville and Snapping the entire journey.

The fun will start at 2pm and last for 24 hours (as per Snap-usual), so don’t miss out!

LelaLondoB: Nothing like a bit of self-promotion! Though I am long awaiting the day Snapchat lets me change my typoed username, it hasn’t stopped me from vlogging my every move from the app. As well as taking you on my international travels, to fashion shows, around the best of London, and everywhere in between, I tend to show my Snapchat family the most intimate look at my day-to-day. Join in!

JaredLeto: For an Oscar-winning actor and singer, Leto also has an envy-inducing knack for the ol’ Snapchat. Posting more photos than videos, he loves to curate hand-drawn photo edits that bring his epic travels to a new dimension of cool. All very lucid, indeed.

Fashitects: I have found very few male bloggers making much of an effort with Snapchat, but Toni is killing it. As well as being one of the sweetest people around, his mix of high fashion, architect-prone precision and self-deprecation makes for excellent viewing.

Rihanna: Though the account is run by Rihanna’s best friend, Leandra Simone, infrequent Snap marathons showcase a very personal side of the superstar’s life – everything from late-night munchie runs to Thansgiving dance-offs.

Ingrid.Nilsen: The ground-breaking Youtube personality’s Snapchat is like a constant personal stream of positivity. With a creative eye, Ingrid share her beauty, food, and sunshine-filled life in the most beautifully produced way. With lolz, to boot.

Kanye West Shoes

  • In an issue dedicated to celebrating the relationship between music and fashion, V magazine’s “The Queen Of Hip Hop” editorial appropriately features a top, skirt and shoes from Kanye West‘s debut collection.

  • The former managing director of Hermes France, Bruno Guillon, has recently joined British fashion label Mulberry as their new chief executive. He plans to help heavily transition the brand into Asian markets.

  • Boardwalk Empire actor Michael Pitt is the official face of Prada’s Spring/Summer 2012 menswear campaign – a David Sims-lensed look at the golden age Hollywood icon. According to the brand, Pitt “explores the language of male role models from the rock star to the playboy, from the self-reflective introvert to the engaging and humorous farceur. […] Contemporary men work when they play and play when they work. The boundaries are no longer clear – as the campaign’s simple props and gestures emphasize.”

    Unfortunately, I can only see him as a psychopath. Thanks, Funny Games.

  • DKNY is supplying the New York Rangers with their practice jerseys for the rest of the season! Never before have I wanted to be a hockey player!

  • GQ has awarded Jared Leto with the title of 2011’s worst dressed man, for looking “extravagantly terrible all year long.”

  • Though cotton topped out at $2.12 this year, prices have just dropped to 86.4 cents a pound. A step in the right direction!

  • Who’s face/body/photoshopping earned magazines the most moolah, this year? Jennifer Aniston, Heidi Klum, and Sarah Jessica Parker!

    Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Elle, Vogue, and Marie Claire covers were the second or third best-sellers for each publication; Heidi Klum‘s Lucky and Glamour covers were both magazines’ second best performers, and Jennifer Aniston gave Marie Claire its best-selling issue in July and pulled in major sales for her November Elle cover.

    Who didn’t do so well? Reese Witherspoon, whose covers marked below-average sales for Vogue, Marie Claire, and Glamour. Interestingly, magazines with Kim Kardashian on the cover were doing well in the beginning of 2011, yet as her so-called ‘sham’ marriage unfolded the numbers have started to look very poor.

  • Singer John Legend proposed to model Chrissy Teigen this past weekend while they were on vacation in the Maldives! WEDDING PHOTO EXCITEMENT.

  • Alessandra Ambrosio just announced that she is pregnant with her second child! The model and her fiance, Jamie Mazur, already have a 3-year-old, and are looking forward to adding another member to the family in five months time.

    Yes, that does mean she was pregnant with strutting her flawless body down the Victorias Secret Fashion Show runway. Weep with me.
