A new column on Fashion Unfiltered in which social media sensation @Choupettesdiary, famed for bringing to life the persona of Karl Lagerfeld’s feline darling, Choupette, offers up her weekly musings. Catch the best of Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and more through this pussy’s baby blues, below.
Get ready to step up your selfie game dahhhlings! With 360-degree Facebook photos to 3D Snapchats, you better make sure your social media game is on point. While you wrap your head around how to Photoshop a 3D photo, peruse Lena Dunham’s topless Instagram and Disney princesses decked out in designer duds. Here, for your reading pleasure, is the best of the week in social media.
Mario Testino Wants You To Take 360-Degree Photos
On Thursday, Facebook rolled out 360-degree image offerings and photographer Mario Testino jumped right onboard. Testino shared a special edition “Towel Series” featuring models Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge. Since not every human looks like Kloss or has Testino’s eye, we can expect a lot of less-than supermodel-worthy shots to start filling newsfeeds. Will this fuel social media bullies or empower selfie-takers everywhere?
Altuzarra Resort 2017 Has Its Own Snapchat Filter
It’s not every day that a designer opens a resort presentation with a Snapchat announcement. But that’s exactly what Joseph Altuzarra did earlier this week. During an intimate showing of his Resort 2017 lineup, the designer made an announcement about a special Altuzarra Resort 2017 Snapchat filter. Smart? Oui, seeing as every editor can’t take his or her swiping finger off the little Snapchat circle. Unfair? Oui! If Altuzarra’s Resort 2017 collection has its own Snapchat filter, why don’t I? And no, I don’t want that cheesy face swap bull!
Lena Dunham Shares Topless Selfie
Lena Dunham is no stranger to going topless. As an avid Girls fan, I’ve seen my fair share of Dunham’s nips and I never bat a lash. Unless, of course, Daddy Karl Lagerfeld is watching alongside moi and then it’s just plain AWKWARD! In true Lena fashion (or lack thereof), she stripped down during the CFDA awards to snap a sexy selfie wearing a rabbit necklace. Those are some lucky rabbits and that is one very lucky jewelry designer: CFDA nominee Irene Neuwirth. Talk about free (the nipple) press!
Snapchat Wants You To Take 3D Selfies
As if there wasn’t pressure enough to look purrrfect on social media, now Snapchat wants users to take 3D selfies. Narcissists like moi rejoice because Snapchat has quietly acquired Seene, a “3D photo app maker”. While users will be able to turn anything 3D, I expect the millennials will use it to take their selfies to a whole new level.
Instagram Account Makes Disney Princesses Into Designer Supermodels
From Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty, I’ve always idolized Disney princesses. There’s something about their perfect complexions and dresses that makes me want to sing alongside tiny cartoon birds. Photographer and illustrator Gregory Masouras shares my fantasy and created the “Animation In Reality” Instagram project, which combines Disney characters with modern celebs. The illustrator pairs the style of characters with real life people and runway shows, like The Evil Queen with Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2016 collection. Cue the singing cartoon birds!
