At the moment, 13-year-old 'Mike the Ruler' is proving he's king on Instagram. With an interest in fashion, the teen boy has gained a following of nearly 10,000 people and he recently made the cover of New York Magazine.

Mike the Ruler has a penchant for designer labels and a snap of him in oversized Rick Owens gear from head-to-toe was one of the first photos that brought him into the limelight. However, the teen mixes high-end pieces with more affordable lines and thrift shop finds with a sense of style that's definitely well ahead of most kids his age.

Unfortunately for Mike, he's still got to wear a uniform at school and some of the kids don't understand his love of fashion, but with adoration from staff at shops like Supreme and Opening Ceremony, it's easy to see who's getting the last laugh.
