Every week, W‘s new Instagram account @whoswho provides a guide to the top profiles to follow, and explains why.
This week, the summer fashion shows kept coming with Gucci hosting a resort Renaissance extravaganza at the Pitti Palace in Florence, Italy, and Chanel flying its darlings like Lily Rose Depp out to Tokyo for its annual Métiers D’Art show. While there was much talk about Gucci designer Alessandro Michele’s rebellious, pearl-heavy collection, complete with Italian musicians, Elton John, and a controversial Dapper Dan reference, our eyes were on the young models Alton Mason and Nicole Atieno, who revealed on Instagram that they’ve got sparks on and off the runway. Also, two new faces front row were Dakota Johnson’s stunning younger sisters, Stella Banderas-Griffith (daughter of Antiono Banderas and Melanie Griffith) and Dakota Johnson. We couldn’t help but wonder: Are they they new Hadids? As for Chanel, there were plenty of Japanese It girls and models to discover with huge social media followings.
Back in New York, some models like Alanna Arrington were attending their proms and graduations, while the rest of us geared up for the Governors Ball Music Festival, this year featuring new, young talent like Dua Lipa.
