Sport has inspired me in my life, and it inspires people all around the world,” says tennis star Novak Djokovic (@djokernole), who is currently ranked number one in the world for men’s singles. 🎾 “It is a force for incredible good and can transform people’s lives for the better.” At the 2019 Laureus World Sports Awards (@laureussport) in Monaco, Novak took home the award for Sportsman of the Year. “I always love coming to the Laureus World Sports Awards,” he says. “It’s a chance to catch up with great friends and sporting legends!” #Laureus19 at Monaco

Hair and makeup tests. Model castings. Final fittings and alterations. All at the same time. That’s #NYFW for fashion designer Christian Cowan (@christiancowan). “It kind of feels weirdly under control, which scares me maybe even more,” Christian said two days before his fashion show. “I feel like there should be some huge issue we’re dealing with.” (Better to save the drama for the runway.) For his latest collection, Christian was inspired by the excess of modern culture. He used watches, crystals and lots of neon to poke fun at the concept that more is more. Christian is also proud of having a diverse runway that includes plus-size models and trans models. “I never grew up wanting to dress just one type of woman. That wasn’t the dream,” he says. “I want to dress all kinds of women.” Today on our IGTV channel, the young designer invites us into his studio and backstage at his show. at New York, New York

Hello, world! Today’s #WeeklyFluff is Coco, a Congo African grey parrot who’s feeling particularly co-dependent after Valentine’s Day. “She will follow me all around,” says Coco’s human Jackie Persaud (@mss_jackie_j). “Once she loses [sight of] me, she will scream like a toddler and ask, ‘Where you? Where you? Where you?’” Deep down, Coco just wants your undivided attention. Photo by @mss_jackie_j at Inwood, New York

To honor the black community on Instagram and celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth, we’re sharing another story in our series #ShareBlackStories. This month and beyond, follow along and share your unique perspective using the hashtag. Through the art of wearing a headwrap, Paola Mathe (@findingpaola) discovered a community of women with their own vision for the future. “I want to create bold, colorful images of black women of all nationalities, backgrounds and social classes,” Paola says. “Images I wish my 5-year-old self could see.” Growing up in Pétion-Ville, Haiti, Paola vividly remembers the first time she wore a headwrap at the age of 7. “It made me feel beautiful for the very first time,” she says. As an adult now living in Austin, Texas, Paola sees a headscarf as a sign of strength and confidence. “It makes me feel taller,” she says. “Like I’m standing with an army of my ancestors who fought for me to be here.” In 2014, Paola founded Fanm Djanm (@fanmdjanm), a company dedicated to selling headwraps and cultivating a community around them. In Haitian Creole it means “strong woman.” “That’s who I wanted to celebrate with my headwraps,” Paola says. See more stunning images of Paola wearing her signature headscarves, right now on our story. Photo by @findingpaola at New York, New York

💌 Happy #ValentinesDay! We have a gift for you. 💌 Meet Shane Burcaw (@shaneburcaw) and Hannah Aylward (@hannahayl) who — like any great modern love story — met with a little help from technology. 🙃 Hannah made the first move; she reached out to Shane after watching a documentary about his life. Today, the pair lives together in Minnesota where 26-year-old Shane is an author and Hannah, 23, is a college senior, studying sociology. “At first, I think people are a little unsure of what to think of our relationship since I am in a wheelchair, and I rely on Hannah for a lot of my day-to-day care,” says Shane, who lives with spinal muscular atrophy, a genetic disease affecting the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement. “I think people assume that Shane needs more caregiving than he does,” adds Hannah. “Anything that I do to help him is just us hanging out together. And we don’t see it as girlfriend time versus caregiving time. It’s all just us being together.” The couple is on a mission to normalize inter-abled relationships. “It shows people that having a disability isn’t a sad, depressing existence,” says Hannah. “And people who are able-bodied can be in amazing relationships with people who have disabilities.” Today on our story and our IGTV channel, we’re celebrating Hannah and Shane’s love. (P.S. Grab your tissues. This one’s a tear-jerker.) ❤️ at Minnesota

#Selflove means treating yourself with compassion and respect, like you would treat someone you love,” says Claudia Romano (@claudiadoodles), who works at an education nonprofit by day… and doodles by night. “I became interested in self-care after graduating from college and feeling burnt out in my first full-time job in a new city,” says the 23-year-old who lives in NYC. “Drawing and painting are a big part of how I practice self-care.” Head to today’s story to check out the story templates Claudia created to help us prep for #ValentinesDay. “I hope people will take a minute to think about how self-love and self-care show up in their lives!” she says.
