The tornado of glamour, celebs, and clothing that is New York Fashion Week won’t kick off for a couple more weeks, but good news! There’s a whole other Fashion Week happening right this second across the pond. That’s right, Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture is in full swing, with designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Raf Simons showing their intricately-crafted, totally swoon-worthy wares. And while you can always keep up with the action by checking traditional photo sites, this season it’s the front row fixtures and models themselves who are REALLY the ones giving us the ultimate inside scoop (via Instagram, of course). So grab your phone and get ready to follow—we’ve got your Paris Fashion Week “It List” right here.

There’s no better person to kick off the group than fashion darling Hailee Steinfeld, who’s already garnered QUITE the modeling resume for a 16-year-old. The former Miu Miu face stopped by the Chanel show earlier today, looking the part of a Parisienne in a leather pencil skirt, collegiate cardigan, Chanel purse, and perfectly tilted hat. Besides posing with Karl, Hailee also called out Cara Delevingne on Instagram with a close-up of the model working it on the runway. Awww.

Fashion’s other favorite teen ingenue Chloe Grace Moretz hit the Dior show yesterday and captured her favorite front row looks for the rest of us not lucky enough to make it (thanks, Chloe!). Along with a regram of a paparazzi shot of herself leaving the show, the actress tweeted a photo of the strapless gown above saying simply, “Brilliance.” Agreed!

Our boy Theophilus London hasn’t been wasting a single minute since hitting Paris. Between making pit stops at Colette Paris with Kanye, he’s found time to hit Chanel, Dior Homme, and hang with Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne. Now THAT’S multi-tasking, y’all.

We can always count on Rita to deliver the ultimate in BTS snaps, and she hasn’t disappointed one bit during PFW. I mean, just LOOK at this killer trio hanging out after the Chanel show today and try not to obsess. Impossible, right? Between Rita’s amazing red jacket, Theophilus London’s quilted jacket steez, and Cara, well, just being Cara, meet the fashion industry’s newest cool kids club.

Whereas most models stick to pretty glamour shots backstage, leave it to Cara to do pretty much the OPPOSITE and still look amazing. The British catwalker struck a different kind of pose at the Chanel show, along with the caption “Are you ready to rumble???!!!” just before hitting the runway. The hilarious facial expression almost rivals the photo she took after the show, saying “Done and dusted.” Cara, do us all a favor and please never change.

Lookin’ good, A$AP! Not that we’d expect anything less or anything, but the rapper is one of the MANY stars showing some major support for Dior’s Raf Simons recently. While we’ve been keeping track of his Simons wardrobe choices all week, it wasn’t until yesterday when A$AP finally met the designer in person. Luckily for us, he captured the moment with social media so we can fully digest the layers, details, and…fur earmuffs(?) that collided during this magical meeting. Thank goodness for Instagram.
