Alber Elbaz admits to loving Instagram but has never had his own account. Until now.

Alber Elbaz is moving on and onto Instagram. The former Lanvin Creative Director revealed just wo weeks ago at the FGI Night of Stars event why he wasn't on the Instagram wagon yet, saying, "I was asked the other day, if I have a personal Instagram [account]. I said, 'not really' and they said, 'How come?' I said, 'I don't really have photogenic friends; I only have good friends. I also do not take photos of the food. I eat food'."

It seemed a little prodding from Instagram's Head of Fashion Partnerships Eva Chen was all it took to change Elbaz's mind.  Chen posted a photo with the caption: "Let's give a warm Instagram welcome to the legendary Alber Elbaz. He just joined @instagram and has his fish gape/duck face ready! Follow him @alberelbaz8!"

In his lengthy debut post, which was filled with emojis, Elbaz wrote, "This past two weeks made me realise how many amazing friends+supporters I have... And yes, they are all 'photogenic'... because they are all beautiful 'inside-out'."
