What: Alber Elbaz exits Lanvin, joins Instagram Why: The news of Alber Elbaz's departure from Lanvin came just days after Raf Simons announced he had stepped down from Dior, which made us all wonder if something more than a round of designer musical chairs was afoot. Lanvin's loss, however, was Instagram's gain, as the social media-shy designer quickly jumped on the selfie bandwagon and thanked his friends for their continued support. The caption on his first post, which made use of an impressive number of emoticons, reads as follows: "HUGE hugs+BIG thanks to all of you around the world for showing me so much LOVE. The day after my last show in PARIS, I met with Kevin Systrom, the co-founder of Instagram. I joked and told him.."I don't do Instagram because I don't have 'photogenic' friends...only good FRIENDS And I don't take pictures of food.....I prefer to EAT But this past 2 wks made me realize how many AMAZING friends+supporters I have....And YES,they are all 'photogenic'...because they are all BEAUTIFUL 'inside-out'. Instagram is a beautiful way to communicate+share LOVE. I LOVE YOU ALL BACK I am now on #Instagram !!! Thank you @kevin" READ MORE: The best things $100 will buy you right now

What: Taylor Swift introduces the world to the baddest girl gang ever. Why: Taylor Swift owns the rights to #squadgoals after redefining what it means to have a stylish entourage. She enlisted the help of not one, not two, but fourteen of her favourite ladies to take part in her music video Bad Blood. And, if the video itself wasn't enough to give us collective envy ("Are my friends cool enough?" "Would they protect me from sci-fi bad guys?") she proceeded to be snapped in public with a consistent gaggle of leading ladies, proving that friends are one of the year's top accessories.

What: Yeezy everything. Why: Yeezy's first runway collection hit NYFW with all the fanfare one would expect: fashion editors, fans, haters and even the undecided couldn't stop talking about his debut presentation: What did it mean? How do we feel about the neutral colour palette? Are wearing pantyhose over your head going to be a new trend? Then came the launch of the Yeezy Boost, the sneaker that was harder to get your hands on than Banksy. Before sneakerheads had time to fully mourn missing out on what we'd call the kicks of the year (Footwear News actually did present Kanye with the "Shoe of the Year" award at its 29th Annual Achieve Awards), the second installment of Yeezy for Spring 2016 hit the catwalk, driving home the idea that Kanye may very well be onto something.
