Les­son 1: Out­side the Marni show, it was im­pos­si­ble to miss Eva Chen, In­sta­gram’s head of fash­ion part­ner­ships. Equally clear? This street­style star is re­ally nice.

Les­son 2: Se­ri­ous pho­tog­ra­phers gear up se­ri­ously. With­out a puffer or slicker on, I was clearly the only one dab­bling in this pur­suit.

Les­son 3: Even bold­face names pose with reg­u­lar folk! This fan had a selfie mo­ment with famed fash­ion jour­nal­ist Anna Dello Russo.

Les­son 4: Shoes are an im­por­tant topic of con­ver­sa­tion. Model and style star Candela Novem­bre care­fully dis­cussed her footwear choices.

Les­son 5: Street­syle reg­u­lars know they will be pho­tographed from all an­gles. While I awk­wardly sta­tioned my­self be­hind, pro Tamu McPher­son crouched in front to get her shot.

Les­son 6: Mix­ing pat­terns makes for a com­pelling street-style shot! Maybe I’m get­ting the hang of this?

Les­son 7: Be hum­ble. Your best shot may turn out com­pletely out of fo­cus. Also, this was su­per posed. She stared stu­diously at her phone un­til the cam­era click­ing fin­ished.
