This Instagram Account Has Just Been Deemed Most Stylish

May 30 2014 - 12:59pm

If you've ever argued that there's an art to Instagram, the CFDA has your back. When they announced [1] this year's addition of an Instammer of the Year Award, the Council of Fashion
Designers of America officially elevated not only the eight nominated accounts, but snappers everywhere.

And as social media goes, the nominees, who were selected by a panel that included Rachel Zoe [2] and The Coveteur's Stephanie Max, were pared down to a winner by the public. Voting was open through May 30 on cfda.com [3], when @aguynamedpatrick [4] came out victorious. And while snapper Patrick Janelle won't receive a Trova onstage at the CFDA Awards, he will be invited to attend the ceremony on June 2 (as well as earn plenty of bragging rights).

If @aguynamedpatrick [5] and the seven other nominees' handles don't sound familiar yet, we assure you they soon will! Find out what all the fuss is about, and get educated on the contenders with our handy introduction to these talented Instagrammers.
