TOP 10: INSTAGRAM'S MOST STYLISH PARTY PEOPLE

16.12.14

Call them what you will. Muses for after midnight, heroines of having a good time, or good old-fashioned party animals. Befitting of a modern Gatsbian celebration, each of the women who make our list of the Top 10: Instagram's Most Stylish Party People know that having a ball starts with looking like the picture of party perfection. Whether your name's on the list for the hottest ticket in town or you're having a more sedate soiree, for the end-of-year's social season take your cue from the women who make partying look like it's their profession.

LEIGH LEZARK

As one half of achingly-hip DJ collective, The Misshapes, Leigh Lezark is not only a regular attendee of the most glamorous parties, she’s also frequently to be found behind the decks as party-starter-in-chief. Chic but never sugary, Leigh’s wardrobe is as sleek as her trademark bob, with lashings of black, stark separates and sportswear-inspired shapes featuring as mainstays. This is Gothic-tinged glamour at its most scintillating.

JOURDAN DUNN

A mass of willowy limbs and shimmering skin, it’s hard to imagine the possibility of Jourdan Dunn looking anything less than the picture of perfection. Luckily for us, Jourdan’s dress stellar dress sense is a formidable rival for her beauty. Whether in elegant cocktail dresses or bedecked in sleek pieces with an urban edge, sartorially predictable Jourdan is not. Especially noteworthy is Jourdan’s love of the little black dress, which you’ll see in its many guises on her Instagram account.

POPPY DELEVINGNE

A stalwart of London’s social circuit, barely a week goes by without Poppy Delevingne appearing on a best-dressed list. We’re glad of Poppy’s unwavering commitment to the social calendar as it means that we get to greedily consume Instagram snaps of her dressed in her inimitable ethereal style. Part happy-go-lucky hippy, part sleek socialite (she’s a Chanel Brand Ambassador), you can be sure that whichever party Poppy attends, she’ll leave a trail of fringing, lace, organza or florals in her wake.

JOAN SMALLS

As one of the world’s most ubiquitous models Joan Smalls is no stranger to wearing the very finest designer clothing and, when paired with her genetic blessings, it’s no surprise that demand is high to appear arm-draped around this fashionable party regular. Most often found among a gaggle of fellow supermodels, Joan specialises in party dressing which is incredibly sleek and luxurious yet uncompromisingly modern. For Joan dresses come floor-length but never frumpy, hair is often neatly slicked back, and to finish a generous application of matte red lipstick is de rigueur.

ALEXA CHUNG

Whatever it may be, there’s no doubt that Alexa Chung has it in droves. Gallic-infused, tomboy style may be Alexa’s go-to party look, but there’s seldom a style that Alexa hasn’t (successfully) turned her fashionable hand to. Making after dark dressing look enviably effortless, we salute Alexa for her ability to look simultaneously pared-back and high-impact. And, though Alexa’s wardrobe may have us looking on in awe, we’re similarly enamoured with her trademark beauty tricks. There’s the cat-eye flick of black eyeliner, the stain of red lipstick, and, of course, her headful of hair tousled just so.

KRISTINA BAZAN

Self-made names don’t come much more stratospheric than Kristina Bazan. Hailing from Geneva, Switzerland, all before the tender age of 20, this fashion influencer can count the titles; blogger, Art Director, stylist and singer on her CV. Representing a coterie of the world’s most luxurious brands, Kristina’s wardrobe is the stuff of (extremely aspirational) dreams. This party season, we’re looking to channel her youthful yet opulent style.

NAOMI CAMPBELL

Practically synonymous with the word party, despite being well into her third successful decade of modelling, Naomi Campbell can be relied on to not only appear bright-eyed at all of the very best parties in town, but dressed to dazzle too. Never seen not glamorous, Naomi’s style is delightfully dramatic and displays her sartorial appetite for only the best of everything. Even better, Naomi’s Instagram account is sprinkled with appearances from best friend Kate Moss in her evening finery.

ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY

Part coquettish English rose, part enchanting Amazonian goddess, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Instagram feed makes for a ripe source of party perfect looks. Evidently a firm believer in more is more fashion philosophy, dramatic dressing with lashings of embellishment is Rosie’s speciality. Naomi aside, we can scarcely think of any one person who is equally able to drip with diamonds and look entirely tasteful. Take your cue from Rosie this party season by catching the light and shining on.

JULIA RESTOIN ROITFELD

As daughter of the iconic editrix Carine Roitfeld, it’s no surprise that razor-sharp dressing is effortless for Art Director and model Julia Restoin Roitfeld. Simultaneously channelling elegant French chic and Gothic romanticism, Julia’s Instagram account is indispensable for its (incredibly sophisticated) insights into a wardrobe of one of the fashion world’s most well-connected women.

If like us, you occasionally like to dress a little more devil-may-care for social occasions, head to the Instagram account of Alexandra Spencer, the creative mind behind the wildly-popular blog 4thandBleeker.
