TikTok has announced that it has one billion users each month. That means that there are more people who watch TikTok videos of hamsters and dancers than there are people who use heroin, which is around an estimated 13.5 million people worldwide.

Please, Marlboro, give us the raspy voice of Alexa Chung, the mystique of the Olsen Twins, and the confidence of an NYU student who has just returned from studying abroad in Paris. Amen.

It’s autumn in New York City, a time when old pictures of the elusive Olsen twins’ blanket coats, oversized scarves, and coffee cups permeate our Instagram Explore Page like a sartorial infection we can’t get rid of. Or can’t get enough of, possible. Fascinatingly, fall brings the return of the…
