If you’re obsessed with “It” girl style and like being in the know before most, there’s a secret that celebrity style-stalkers know – and we’re about to let you in on it. One of the best, most expedient and intimate ways to see celebrity style firsthand is by following their stylists’ accounts on Instagram. Not only do stylists to the stars post behind-the-scenes photos as their clients get ready for the Oscars, the Met Gala, and the Golden Globes, but they also tend to have those photos posted way before the media gets to them.
By following these celebrity stylists on Instagram, you’re guaranteed an inside track to what style icons like Bella Hadid, Cate Blanchett, and Zendaya are wearing. We tracked down some of Instagram’s most well-kept celebrity stylist accounts so that you can feel like a celebrity insider, too.
