Laura Bailey is a stylish multi-tasker – moonlighting as a model, writer for Vogue, ambassador for the British Fashion Council and more. She shares her favourites for this week’s Follow Friday.
Kay is a make-up artist who delves into her rich archives of personal work across three decades, as well as diverse inspirational images. She’s a fashion and beauty encyclopaedia, which she shares, sometimes in collaboration with my friend, actress Thandie Newton at @thandieandkay. Celebrating diversity and empowerment, Kay and Thandie have taught me how Instagram can be simultaneously personal, political and just plain beautiful.
BORTHWICK ON INSTAGRAM
I've never met Bibi, who is an up-and-coming NYC photographer, but her designer mother (Maria Cornejo) and photographer father (Mark Borthwick) were inspirations to me when I lived in NYC in my 20s. I love her free-spirited Instagram, which mixes her own work with childhood nostalgia, family love and wise words. One to watch.
Writer and philosopher Alain tweets what I should be reading or thinking about when I'm distracted by who’s wearing what now. This is Twitter as a means to self-improvement via a guilty conscience.
Amanda was one of my first friends in NYC. I was even her bridesmaid, and more recently, her daughter taught my little girl to ride. I’m a London girl at heart, but now that she’s a Cotswold runaway she makes country life look pretty damn idyllic. Former fashion director of Barneys, Amanda is a clever writer with a fashion eye, and she makes me crave a room with a view far, far away (and a pony or two).
HOLLYSIZ ON TWITTER
I can't wait to see this new band, Hollysiz, play live in London because the lead singer, Cecile Cassell, is just one of those amazing French girls who make you want to start over. (And because Twitter is so much more glamorous in French).
