Daily Distraction: Best Celebrity Instagrams
Posted by Katie Ostoich on April 26, 2012 at 2:27 PM
Instagram is by far our favorite way to snap photos, make them look awesome and share with our friends. And celebs love to feel like they channel Annie Leibovitz too. It’s the seriously best way to get a voyeuristic look into their lives. Since its $1 billion acquisition by Facebook (yeah, a billion. NBD.), the photo-sharing app added a shocking 5 million users in just the five days after the deal was announced. If you’re new to Instagram or already a seasoned user, here are our fave celebrities you should follow.
Do you like cats? And country music? Then you’re probably already following T Swift’s feed. She clearly has a “Love Story” with her feline friends and posts a lot of pics of them—and the occasional shot of herself. Winning awards, cooking, and being the goofy, down-to-earth gal we love to root for, T Swift’s account is pretty fun.
Pop princess Britney Spears uses Instagram to connect with fans by posting photos of her private life, as well as many snapshots of her performing on stage. I love following her travels through her photos!
Ryan Seacrest may be one of the best celebs to follow, not just because of his incredibly interesting life, but because he has access to almost every celebrity in popular culture, and he documents his time with these stars via his account. Whether it’s hanging out at the pool with Michael Phelps or giving Dolly Parton a bear hug, Seacrest likes to show his followers what a good friend he can be.
We love LC, it’s no secret. She’s classy and fun and her outfits are always amazing! Lauren Conrad often gives a sneak peek of what she's up to — and what she's wearing — on her personal account.
Aren’t we the lucky ones! Zac Efron is new to the photo-sharing app, but he now seems to be all about staying connected. I love all the recent pics from his movie premieres that are filling up his feed.
Chopped, shaven, black, blond—if you’re a fan of RiRi’s ever-altered tresses, a follow on Instagram will be sure to keep you up to date on her latest styles. She also posts a wide variety of pics—from life at home to touring on the road—which keeps her account exciting!
Three months ago, our very own POTUS took to sharing pics of his daily life. Uploading photos of his conferences, his wife, Michelle, and even an Obama-inspired pie, the president of the United States seems to love this social medium as much as the rest of us.
Rapper Ludacris doesn’t hide how absolutely lavish his life really is. Posting a multitude of photos that make us hate our day job, he shows off his Bentley, private jet, and other excesses of his fortunate lifestyle.
One of the first celebs to jump on the Twitter and Instagram bandwagon, Ashton posts a variety of pics of his multitude of facial expressions. Whether he’s donning a head band, frowning, or scrunching up his chiseled features, Kutcher is always ready for his close-up.
I know, I know. With even more photos showcasing how casually perfect her glitzy life is, Kardashian shows followers the many angles of her cleavage, how much she loves makeup, and the various cast members that appear on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Like it or not, there is no avoiding her.
We wish every celebrity took advantage of Instagram like Snoop. Shamelessly posting pictures of himself smoking, drinking, covered in blue paint, and in other compromising positions, the dee-oh-double-gee knows how to utilize this medium to the delight of his followers.
The poster child for hipster adorkableness, it’s only natural that The New Girl star Zooey Deschanel is a frequent uploader. Check out photos of her retro outfits, tuxedo-painted nails, and vintage uploads of her mother (who looks scarily similar). The doe-eyed actress makes a point to showcase her giant peepers in almost every shot.
Singer Jason Mraz isn't shy when it comes to composing a shot. My favorite hippie crooner loves to share pics from his tour and behind the scenes. He even shared some from his recent trip to Antarctica!
Even if you aren’t a Biebs fan, we know you like to keep tabs on him. Your “Boyfriend” uses his Instagram account to post personal—admittedly adorable—photos of himself, his little brother and sister, and main squeeze Selena Gomez. Oh, and the occasional shirtless pic.
