Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmystyle
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.
The goal this weekend is to make photos and videos that showcase your personal style. Our project takes inspiration from New York’s Museum of Modern Art’s (@​themuseumofmodernart​) exhibit, “Items: Is Fashion Modern?,” which features 111 items of garments and accessories that have had a strong impact on culture in the last century. Paola Antonelli (@paolantonelli), senior curator of architecture and design at MoMA, shared these tips for getting started with your submission:
Think about the role fashion plays in your life — and capture it in an image. “The way we dress tells us so much about our identities and selves, as well as larger histories or stories of place and community,” says Paola. “Clothing can be armor, disguise or representation of true selfhood.”
Focus on specific items in your closet you’d like to highlight: “Pick something you love, that you truly adore and feel happy in,” says Paola. “Find out more about its story before you take your picture. Where did it come from? Who might have made it? How much did it cost you? How do you take care of it? And then strike a pose.”
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPmystyle hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.

Jump for Joy with The RopeStylers
To see more, follow @ropestylers on Instagram.
Based in Paris, four athletes — Pauline (aka “Popo”), Kevin (aka “Choco”), Jeff (aka “Wens”) and Brandon (aka “BlackLee”) — make up The RopeStylers (@ropestylers), a professional double Dutch jump-rope group, among the best in Europe.
Their favorite part of double Dutch? “Liberty!” says Wens. “Liberty to dance, make tricks, juggle and jump on the rope, but also liberty to be yourself — it’s accessible to all and can be practiced differently depending on the individual.”

The Foods and Flavors of Singapore with @stylohotmilo
To learn more about Jasmine, follow @stylohotmilo on Instagram.
Twenty-four-year-old Jasmine Tan (@stylohotmilo) is a Singaporean design researcher and self-described foodie. “I love our multiracial demographic because that means there’s always so much to observe, listen and appreciate from the people and spaces around me,” she says. “And of course, we get such a crazy variety of food.”
Jasmine always loved going out to eat — Korean kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew), Japanese ramen and Singapore’s bak kut teh (pork rib soup) are some of her favorites — but she started cooking at home out of necessity. “My house is located in the extreme west of Singapore so I don’t get a lot of food choices, and as a foodie that really annoyed me,” she explains. She’s taken on lots of recipes in her kitchen, but still loves heading out for special meals. “Living in Singapore means that there’s always more food and more experiences waiting for you as long as you’re ready to try!”

Photographer @christian_foto Captures Landscapes from a Bird’s-Eye View
To see more from Christian, follow @christian_foto on Instagram.
Christian Rodríguez (@christian_foto) is seeing the world differently. The photojournalist from Uruguay has eyes in the sky, with a drone-mounted camera, and his young son strapped to his back. “You can see the magnitude of the landscape,” he says, describing the perspective his aerial camera gave him while on a recent trip to Ushuaia, located at the southernmost tip of Argentina. “This region has rivers, peat bogs, melting glaciers and rich flora and fauna,” he adds. “In the end, a drone is a great tool, but the most important thing is the story behind the image.”
For Christian, his most important story now is his relationship with his son, Salvador, who, at 16 months of age, is already growing up as an explorer. “I don’t want to be an absent father,” says Christian. “I want to give him beautiful memories.”

On the Golden Globes Red Carpet with Actress Laura Marano
To see more from Laura, follow @lauramarano on Instagram.
Actress and singer Laura Marano (@lauramarano) was 5 years old when she began acting professionally. “My mom owns a children’s theater, and my sister and I were always there,” says Laura, who was born, raised and still lives in Los Angeles. “I was always performing and taking voice and piano lessons because I loved it so much — and I was also kind of a ham.”
Fast forward to this Golden Globes (@goldenglobes) weekend, and Laura is proud and excited to be co-hosting the red carpet before the awards show — and to have starred in a nominated film, “Lady Bird.” “I can’t believe I got to be a part of a movie that was nominated for a few Golden Globes,” she says. “To be honest, one of my bucket list goals was always going to the Golden Globes, and the fact that I’m getting to accomplish that this weekend has me completely flipping out.”

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPspontaneous
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes and hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post every week announcing the latest project.
This weekend, the goal is to take photos and videos that capture unexpected moments filled with energy and excitement, as in this featured photo from Noel Besuzzi (@imoments). Here are some tips to get you started:
Find humor in spontaneity — from a bird snatching someone’s midday snack to a friend pretending to skate along an icy street.
Join in on the fun! Dance at a party, run in a race, help your family cook a meal — some of the most spontaneous moments come from when you’re in on the action.
Sit back and observe your neighbors, co-workers and loved ones around you. People make dozens of spur-of-the-moment decisions every day — see if you can manage to catch one of them on camera.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHPspontaneous hashtag only to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video taken over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.
