Kendall Jenner has racked up over 85 million followers on the site.
Kendall Jenner has bagged the number one spot in the top 10 list of catwalk stars who have the highest amount of followers on the photo-sharing site, as she currently boasts 85 million supporters on her social media account.
The 22-year-old beauty has more than double the amount of fans on the platform as fellow model Cara Delevingne, who has been pitted in second place on the rankings list, is followed by 40.8 million fans, while Gigi Hadid, 22, came in third place with just under a fan base spanning 37 million.
However, Gigi’s younger sister Bella, 21, has landed in fifth position with 15 million followers, but the ‘Lip Sync Battle USA’ co-host Chrissy Teigen – who appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2010 – is close behind with 14.6 million supporters.
Kendall has beat fashion legend Gisele Bundchen off the top spot, as the 37-year-old Brazilian beauty has been pitted in seventh place with a fanbase spanning just over 13 million. But this is not the first time Kendall has knocked Gisele – who has four-year-old daughter Vivian and seven-year-old son Benjamin with her husband Tom Brady – to the number one position, as she recently topped Forbes’ World’s Highest Paid Models List 2017, which is a title Gisele has held for 15 years since 2002.
Miranda Kerr, as well as Victoria’s Secret Angels Candice Swanepoel and Adriana Lima have just made the top 10 list as they each have a fanbase spanning 11 million. Not only has ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashian’ star – who has partnered with cosmetic giant Estee Lauder, as well as Chanel, Fendi and Calvin Klein – bagged the Most Followed Model title, as well as the highest earning star, she has also received the most likes for a photograph on the site.
The image, which was shared in June this year, captures Kendall wearing a gingham printed bikini with a cropped t-shirt over the top flaunting her super toned torso, and has received over 4 million likes.
Although Kendall is a popular model on Instagram, she is not the most followed member of the Kardashian/Jenner brood, as her half-sister Kim Kardashian West has tallied up 104 million fans, which puts her in fifth place in the Most Followed Celebrity list on the site, while Kendall is pitted in tenth place.
