If you are looking to stay ahead of the curve this fashion week, we have a couple of resources for you. While we think you should definitely come check us out for style reports and trend watches, a more second-to-second update would be through Instagram. If you have been doing this already, great. If not, you are truly missing out! However, we don’t think you should follow just anyone. Here are some top fashion week contenders!

2. Gwyneth Paltrow (via Taylor Tomasi Hill) | @goop
Love Gwyneth Paltrow or not, she knows about lavish lifestyles and fashion. For her personal website and”self-help” (of sorts) Instagram, Paltrow has contracted Taylor Tomasi Hill, to take over her goop account for fashion week.
