It doesn't take an Instagram connoisseur to know we've all come a long way from our Hipstamatic days (Admit it: Your entire first three months on Insta back in 2010 were sepia tinged, right?). So what's the hottest filter on the 'gram this year?
No big surprises here: Clarendon! The all-purpose, all flattering one size fits all option is the global most-used among those who aren't using three different apps to edit their pics before posting.
Rounding out the top five are: Gingham (jnteresting!), Lark, Juno, and Moon.

Photoshop took a little vacation from the 2017 Pirelli Calendar. Actresses were shot in black and white by photographer Peter Lindbergh in little to no makeup and without retouching.
The iconic calendar, which was launched in 1964, was once known for its glamorous images of supermodels and celebrities posing in lingerie or even naked. (See Gigi Hadid below in the 2015 edition.)
But following last year’s iconic shot of Amy Schumer, it’s clear that the brand is moving in a different direction— one that’s celebrating these stars in their natural, unfiltered state.
Take a look at a few of this year’s images.

In news that surprises nobody, the 2017 Grammy nominations were just announced, and well, Beyonce slayed (sleighed for seasonality since it's December? No. Cool).
A little record called Lemonade dominated this year's music award nominations, appearing on the short list for 9 categories, including album of the year, song of the year (for 'Formation'), and best video.
Our boy Drake, however, was not far behind—he has 8 nominations, as do Kanye and Rihanna.
Overall, the list wasn't particularly surprising (Adele did pretty well for herself too), bar the somewhat obscure choice of Sturgill Simpson's A Sailor's Guide to Earth in the Album of the Year category. That said—it's a fantastic old school country album that certainly deserves the spot.
Now how many sleeps until February 12?!
A look from Khaite's resort 2017 collection.
Although Alessandro Michele makes a compelling case for more-is-more, some of us will always be drawn to restrained, clean designs. These labels are proving that minimal style doesn't have to boring or unimaginative.
This LA-based label shows that minimalism and ruffles aren't mutually exclusive. Everything is crafted from deadstock vintage fabrics, giving the clothes a nostalgic feel.
For those of you who prefer your bikini free of palm fronds and hibiscus blooms, there's Aussie brand Matteau Swim, known for basic maillots and high-waisted swim bottoms in a palette of black, grey and white.
Launched this year by Catherine Holstein, Khaite is a balance of the masculine and feminine. Fans of the capsule wardrobe concept will find that pieces in the line, from structured shirt dresses to fitted denim, compliment one another perfectly.
Alnea Farahbella's label Toit Volant is made in the USA with a commitment to sustainable sourcing and manufacturing practices. The pre-spring 2017 collection is full of reworked takes on shirting, like this striped jumpsuit with a high collar.
This Montreal-based label keeps production local (the clothes are sewn in Montreal and some of the fabrics are printed in North America) and its ethos is similar to most of the other brands in this list: to let the individual add personality to the clothes.
Another L.A. brand with a dedication to North American manufacturing and sustainability, 5-year-old Shaina Mote is known for architectural, un-adorned basics and fluid silhouettes. If you could live your life without ever donning a polka dot or cheery stripe, the neutral colours in this line are made for you.
Founded by Tokyo-to-L.A. transplants Alexander Yamaguchi and Momoko Suzuki, brand Black Crane is an edgier, more street-wise take on minimalism – think cocoon dresses and wrap trousers with subtle origami and kimono inspiration.
