Chanel posted on its official Instagram account for the first time ever yesterday with a clip of its video teaser for Gisele Bündchen's new Chanel No. 5 campaign. After that first post went out to the brand's nearly 1.8 million followers, Chanel went on an Instagramming spree, uploading eight photos from a Chanel No. 5 event in New York.

Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, Baz Luhrmann, Gisele Bündchen, Lily Allen, Poppy Delevingne, Leigh Lezark, and Harley Viera-Newton all made it on there, although none of them were tagged. "Welcome to Instagram but don't forget to tag people," one commenter said.
