Frank Ocean’s Newly Public Instagram Offers Surprising New Insights Into the Singer’s Style


Since Frank Ocean started his Instagram account last year.
It’s remained private, his selfies and style inspirations accessible only to a lucky few . . . up until yesterday. Believe it or not, the elusive musician has gone public with his account.
With an introductory post for the masses in the form of a shirtless mirror selfie(naturally, he captioned it “Welcome”). The rest of the images—of which there are 307.
Offer a rare glimpse into Ocean’s everyday life and style sensibilities over the past 1.5 years.

Ocean’s Instagram is refreshingly off the cuff.
Interspersed with goofy mirror selfies and house-proud updates that are totally relatable (yes, Ocean is really excited about his new light fixture). Naturally, you also get a good sense of just how wide-reaching his musical tastes are (see the photo of legendary jazz flutist Hubert Laws, for example). Though he’s certainly got his finger on the pulse as far as celebrity style goes.
He geeked out on Lil Uzi Vert’s iconic purse moment from last year and was just as obsessed with Zendaya’s Joan of Arc Met Gala look this past May as we were.

All in all, the account shows off Ocean’s playful side (he threatened to sell one of his Grammys.
Which he confiscated from his mother’s house by carrying it in a chic black leather purse).
And his surprisingly whimsical sartorial flair in equal measure. There he is, posing in a loose-fitting sparkling set and rhinestone-adorned pineapple-shaped sunglasses alongside SZA.
The voluminous tulle skirt Ocean finds on a shopping spree will stop you dead in your tracks in another post—captioned “Oh the GLAMOUR 😘”). And last but not least, there’s a proud selfie of the now-infamous sparkling chain mail pants and hot-pink underwear that he wore to his Paris Is Burning–theme birthday party last year. Who knew Ocean had such a thing for high-fashion drama?
