These days, logging on to Instagram is like signing up to jealousy someone’s journey to the Maldives, gawk at that mouth-watering pizza shop in Italy that you’ll never visit, or cry over French bulldogs you’ll never satisfy. At least, this much is true if you’re following the top Instagram models and influencers.
Celebrities certainly top the charts as the most-followed people on Instagram–but while famous people rule the runways, big screen, and red carpet events, who rules Instagram? For most social media influencers, Instagram’s curated feed is a necessary tool for racking up adherents and translating internet stardom into IRL fame. But so often, females seeking to jumpstart their careers on Instagram are boxed into the” Instagram model only” category–one that values very specific beauty standards, body types, and promotional expectations.
More often than not, however, the Instagram models on your Explore page are running successful business ventures. If you want to fill your Instagram feed with glitz, glamour, travelling adventures, and the occasional influencer branded post, these are the rising women of Instagram to follow.
