Instagram – it came, it conquered, and it continues to do so. It has created its own niche, and is on par with social media giants such as FB. ‘Instagram Influencers’ are the real deal, they help you with everything – from makeup, clothing, and fitness advice to just about everything under the sky. And, we love it because it is way less intrusive, lets us follow our role models or fashion icons closely, and engages us ways we didn’t know was possible.
Talking about influencers, Instagram is an excellent medium for models, bloggers, travel junkies, and fitness freaks to put up their creations. But, whatever your personal preference is, there are some people who you just cannot afford to not follow, and those are the ones we are gonna talk about today. Models with millions of followers – we present to you, the most swoon-worthy ‘gram’ profiles every girl who is remotely into fashion should follow.
