It’s been quite a glamorous week on social media full of red carpets and couture. Between Chanel’s new Grecian-inspired cruise collection, the extravagant attendees of the Met Gala, and the fairytale wedding of entrepreneur and Insta-queen Lilly Ghalichi, Instagram has been full of #goals. Plus, we were able to get an inside-look of how our favorite influencers go all out for Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby. Here’s a run-down of Instagram’s luxurious, buzzed-about first week of May!

Chanel Cruise 2017/18
Bringing back the gladiator sandal and braided headband in the most Chanel way possible, Karl Lagerfeld elegantly presents Ancient Greece in Paris’s Grand Palais. Featured “Greek goddesses” are the stunning Camille Hurel and Vittoria Ceretti.
Lilly Ghalichi Wedding
This wedding goes beyond our wildest dreams (and wedding Pinterest boards). Attorney, entrepreneur, and influencer Lilly Ghalichi has picture perfect shots from the dressing room to the “I do” kiss, taken by Duke Photography.
Featured on his Instagram, celebrity hair stylist Etienne Ortega truly creates a masterpiece with this old-Hollywood glam hairstyle.
For the reception, Lilly is captured in a celebratory kiss wearing her second dress, also by Ryan and Walter.
MTV Movie and TV Awards 2017
Photos taken on and off stage, these celebrities’ personal styles clearly shined through. Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell is spotted backstage rocking this fabulous fringe LBD.
“Hey Ma” singer Camila Cabello slays in this floral dress and gives a fiery performance with Pitbull and J Balvin at the awards show.
Another fierce, fringe dress, Gigi Gorgeous shines bright in this Lady Gaga “Paparazzi”-inspired mini-dress.
Met Gala 2017
Like every year, Rihanna makes a bold impression at “fashion’s biggest night out” with this Rei Kawakubo. Respectfully, this year’s theme was a “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between”, an ode to the Japanese fashion designer. These celebrities certainly made the theme their own in these captivating couture gowns.
One of our favorite Hollywood couples, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are always picture-perfect, but Blake totally steals the show in this Serena van der Woodsen approved Atelier Versace gown, featuring a very unexpected feather-train.
Cinco de Mayo 2017
Between margaritas, delicious cuisines, and lively festivities, Instagram was a bit more colorful because of this Mexican celebration. Leave it to the colorful fashionista of Color Me Courtney to show off her fun style with a bold, circle skirt and these adorable pinatas.
Mara Ferreira snaps a quick Cinco-selfie in this embroidered dress, accompanied with a pretty, pink lipcolor.
Kathleen of Carrie Bradshaw Lied plays it cute and casual with this bright, off-the-shoulder blouse featuring the very on-trend pom-poms.
Kentucky Derby 2017
This fashionable, Southern tradition turns Churchill Downs into a runway with spring’s most floral dresses and giant hats. Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific is certainly not shy about wearing her most feminine outfits, and the Kentucky Derby is the perfect opportunity. Very Elle Woods!
This hard-working champion is decked-out in lilies as a medal of honor. Plus, it perfectly complements the guests’ pastel attire.
