Voting opens today for the Council of Fashion Designers of America's first-ever Fashion Instagrammer of the Year. A committee of fashion influencers including Alexander Wang, Rachel Zoe, and The Coveteur narrowed the field to eight nominees, and now it's up to the public to choose their favorite. To vote, all you have to do is follow the nominee's account and like their pics with the hashtag #MyCFDA. The winner will be revealed on May 30, and they will be invited to be the CFDA's official Instagram correspondent at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards.
Wondering why your shelfie didn't earn you a place on the shortlist? The eight Instagrammers selected average around 40,000 followers, and for good reason—their work is pretty fabulous. Click through to see the nominees, in case you don't follow them already.
