Facebook pages are cool. Twitter and Tumblr are pretty tight, too. But the relatively new Instagram is the dopest of all.
The iPhone (soon-to-be Android) photo app allows filtering and sharing via social media platforms–something celebs have caught on to. Since its emergence, some of our favorite big names have used Instagram to build a tighter relationship with their fans, sharing snapshots of their cameos, besties, family, food, favorite hobbies, outfits and more! We’ve compiled a list of the top celebrities and style brands you might want to check out on Instagram!
