"I thought this picture might be a good way to start," Mendes caption the image. "38 years later and still holding strong on the head wrap comeback."

She promises that the account will be used to update her 93,000 followers on her clothing line for New York & Co. as well as CIRCA Beauty, her cosmetics line, which is coming to Walgreens in the near future.

Here's hoping that Mendes' Instagram will soon be filled with photos of Gosling and their daughter Esmerelda.
