Inspiring Instagrams: Clare Waight-Keller

Clare Waight-Keller, Chloe's creative director, loves her social media apps.

Clare Waight-Keller, the creative director of Chloé, is an enthusiastic early adopter of social media platforms and new apps. So, it comes as no surprise that she has a long list of favorite Instagram feeds she follows religiously. Here, she shares a few that have us hooked!

“A surprising choice but just too fabulous,” admitted Waight-Keller about her decision to include the feed of the founder of Playboy magazine on her short list. Filled with a panoply of throw back images of parties at the Playboy mansion, a slew of shots of some of his favorite bunnies and retro selfies, Hefner’s feed is a delightful look back at the good old days of desire.


“She has truly a unique sense of style that mixes her French and British roots with a cool, chic attitude,” said Waight-Keller about the stylist. Through her images, Bidault-Waddington transmits a cool tongue-in-cheek style that both subverts and elevates the best that both fashion capitals have to offer.


One of the chicest men working in fashion, Robert Rabensteiner is the stylist and fashion editor of L’Uomo Vogue. “His taste in menswear is exquisite,” said Waight-Keller. Still new to Instagram, he nonetheless proves with his posts why he is seen as one of the most influential figures within the menswear industry.


Waight-Keller turns to Miguel Flores-Vianna on Instagram when she is in search of “interesting and inspiring images.” Flores-Vianna certainly has access to amazing locations thanks to his gig at Architectural Digest. He writes, produces and photographs pieces for the magazine’s highly regarded column, Private Visit, which highlights the work and spaces of the world’s tastemakers.


It is very hard to keep a smile off your face when scanning the shots posted by Glen Luchford on Instagram. A photographer and a good friend of the designer, Lunchford  “posts hilarious images of himself,” said Waight-Keller. If there was ever a feed filled with images begging to be #regrammed it is this one.
