You might imagine working in #fashun to be all glamorous as you’ve (repeatedly) watched on The Devil Wears Prada. Real fashion magazines are hardly anything but – we do NOT have a gigantic wardrobe with free clothes we can just pilfer from anytime we want but if there’s one thing the movie got right – it’s a lot of hard work behind the scenes.
You need to de-stress? Check out these Instagram accounts that take the mickey out of the glamorous veneer of the fashion industry.
#1:The Anna Wintour fan
@crispino21‘s 2000-odd posts are all centered around US Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour (who basically provided the framework for The Devil Wears Prada) in badly photoshopped situations. It’s a classic case of so bad it’s good.
With this year’s theme for the upcoming Met Gala being Rei Kawakubo and her boundary-pushing label Comme des Garcons, we’d love to see Wintour in one of Kawakubo’s latest creations (Wintour’s been photoshopped into a Fall 2017 look) but it’s probably just wistful thinking – the editor has only been seen in a string of Chanel couture looks in recent years, with a Dior look or two, along with Prada for 2012’s Schiaparelli x Prada themed gala.
Bonus points for not being a Trump supporter.
#2: The meme queen
@youvegotnomale is the person behind some of fashion’s most reposted memes and his 40k odd followers certainly lap it up. He’s apparently so popular (or notorious if you look the other way), Lena Dunham and Taylor Swift have blocked him.
Well, to put it into perspective, Swift doesn’t seem like the type who can take a joke anyway, so…
#3: The modelizer
For the many modelizers out there, @shitmodelmgmt is a god-sent with its humourous takes on the pitfalls of the modeling industry. Run by two fellow models, you can be assured you’re getting the real deal behind those glossy ads and million-dollar looks. And we’re kinda in agreement with that last post.
