Ahh, Instagram — it seems like our love-hate relationship with this addictive app will never cease. Despite its role as the ultimate time-sucker and purveyor of limitless and unyielding FOMO, we can never stop scrolling down the seemingly infinite feed to ogle celeb selfies, ridiculously extravagant nail art, and, of course, cats in costume.
If you suffer from this same Insta dependency, we have a solution (kind of). The way we see it, if you already spend way too much time tapping the update icon, you may as well make the most of your dawdling by looking at the best-of-the-best 'grams around. So, we've rounded up LaLa Land's next generation of social media stars. Yes, we know that there may be bigger players out there, but considering you probably already know them, here's our list of people you should follow before the rest of the world does. Ahead, our favorite L.A. accounts fit for the fashion junkie, foodie, and sunset connoisseur alike.

@katherinepower — You probably know Katherine Power as the co-founder of Who What Wear. But, did you also know she has an awesome personal Instagram account? Featuring shots of her day-to-day outings, glimpses into the cool events she attends, and lust-worthy snaps of her favorite clothes and jewelry, KP's 'gram is a great way to feel a little bit like a fashion insider. (And yes, we adore Health Ade's kombucha.)

@evanfunke — As the chef of Culver City's Bucato, Evan Funke knows good food. That's why you can count on his Instagram for beautifully designed photos of delectable meals. But, don't blame us for your immediate desire to call Bucato for a reservation (believe us, we've already been there).
