Who to Follow on Instagram: the Models

Oh, Instagram. A bottomless well of inspiration. The categories are multiple, their respective players all better than the next. Are you getting an Insta-headache from all the options of beautiful accounts at your fingertips? Hit the refresh button with the must-follow feeds I've identified. The pleasure is all yours (and maybe a tad mine, too).


We've all been sucked in by the Instagram vortex. I happen to do it as my job, therefore the hours I spend on the daily scrolling through the photo-sharing app are completely justified. But for those of you whose livelihood does not depend on your Instagram savviness, it can be a real counter-productive wormhole. The struggle is indeed real.

Start humming hallelujah, cause I'm here to save you some precious clock ticks with this new series aptly named Who to Follow on Instagram. Each installment will explore a different category, because, let's face it: one post could hardly be exhaustive.

It would only be appropriate to begin with everyone's favorite pretty birds, the models. And because I know that you're tired of the regular Gigi and Kendall fodder, hit follow on the suggested comparable babes yonder.

If you like Gigi, follow @rocky_barnes.

Basically the epitome of the California girl essence.



If you like EmRata, follow @saharah_ray.

Sweet and spicy in one pretty sexy package.



If you like Karlie, follow @anja_rubik.

A model entrepreneur just like Kylie, but more edgy. Badass Parisian designer Anthony Vaccarello is her Derek Blasberg.

If you like Bella, follow @cristalserranoo.

Crystal is young and carefree. Bella can relate.

If you like Cara, follow @joannahalpin.

Another English rose with a magnetic face and dashing personality.

If you like Jasmine, follow @ibellapeschardt.

Exotic beauties of this magnitude are few and far between.

If you like Kendall, follow @giizeleoliveira.

A Brazilian bombshell with personality and style in droves. Her friends are just as fab.

If you like Joan, follow @imaanhammam.

She's high fashion, but she has an irresistible face that makes the whole world perk up. Reminds us a lot of someone, cough, Joan Smalls, cough.

If you like Candice, follow @aldensteimle.

A sunny blonde babe who is probably more at ease in swimwear than clothes.

If you like Behati, follow @hoskelsa.

A bit of an edge but all heart. Rock 'n roll!
