6 Snapchat Accounts You Need to Follow Now
With 10 billion daily video views, Snapchat is creating a new universe of social stars. Here are six chic must-follow accounts.
Solange Knowles @nappyandsnappy
Like big sis Bey, Solange is all about unexpected references; the New Orleans-based singer recently posted a clip from Disney’s Pocahontas, perhaps giving us a clue as to something in the works. Snippets of her dancing down the city’s neon streets, hanging with her beautiful family and showing off her insanely chic closet look like they could be the beginning of her next music video.
Petra Collins @petracollins
Toronto-born artist/photographer Petra Collins has been busy lately: She launched a photo exhibition titled 24 Hour Psycho, directed Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Boy Problems” music video and took over Gucci’s Snapchat during its Fall 2016 campaign shoot in Tokyo (which she also starred in, naturally). Her own Snap account is similar in scope to her eccentric resumé, featuring everything from avant-garde banana art to garbage bag dresses.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art @lacma
Masterpieces turned into memes? Catchphrases and current events paired with complementary art? Oh, yes, the LACMA has your back, doling out Snap-story gold with its mix of modern and ancient, hip and haute. With cameos from art world faves like impressionist Mary Cassatt and Pablo Picasso, get ready to screenshot—these images are too good not to save.
Vashtie Kola @vashtiekola
A mainstay of the NYC club scene, Vashtie Kola (a.k.a. Va$htie), is one of those multi-hyphenate wunderkinds (as in, she’s a director, designer, DJ, model). Whether it’s directing a music video for Kendrick Lamar or collaborating on a capsule collection with Puma, Kola’s unequivocally cool style is front and centre. Her best snaps so far have been her VIP views—taken behind her turntables—and her series of ultra-glam manis.
Tina Pereira @tina.pereira
First soloist for the National Ballet of Canada, Pereira has played such iconic roles on stage as The Nutcracker’s Sugar Plum Fairy and Katerina in The Taming of the Shrew. But while her performances exude an easy elegance, her Snapchat offers a behind-the-scenes look at what it actually takes to be a ballerina. When she’s not perfecting her Pas de bourrée, she’s hitting the Pilates reformer or stitching up her pointe shoes.
Caroline Vreeland @cvxx
Watching the escapades of the great-granddaughter of Diana Vreeland (the iconic Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue editor) gives us a voyeuristic look into the life of an It girl. The blonde bombshell’s stories predominantly feature apartment hangs with her model-esque friends, salacious dance-offs in trendy clubs, and pizza-eating selfies. But Vreeland does more than simply preside over the party circuit—her super-sultry voice is also off-the-charts-amazing.
