The Top Female Models on Social Media
Modeling tips and social media tricks from these top models
It’s no secret that social media has changed the modeling industry. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, we no longer have to wait a whole month for the next issue of Vogue to see the latest fashion trends. These days models are more than happy to give their fans real-time insight into their not-so-private worlds. And while it’s true that some models are contractually obligated to tweet up a storm, most do it because it’s fun and it’s an easy way to build their brands. So whether you’re looking for inspiration for your own modeling career or can’t get enough of your favorite models, these are the ladies you need to check out online.
Kendall has nearly 40 million combined followers on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. But lest you think her fan base is merely from her part in "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," consider this: Three days after Kendall announced she had been selected as the new global face of Estée Lauder, the makeup brand's Instagram account gained 50,000 new followers. That takes major modeling power.
Supermodel Adriana Lima, who is fluent in English, French, Italian, Spanish, and her native language of Portuguese, has a huge international fan base and one of the largest social media footprints in the modeling world. This is certainly thanks to a constant supply of gorgeous, positive posts that she shares.
Gisele Bündchen is one of the world’s highest-paid supermodels, but you’d never know it by looking at her social media accounts. Although she posts tons of beautiful modeling shots and beach bikini photos in exotic locations, her updates are often real, personal, and full of heart—and she’s not afraid to cause a stir from time to time.
Irina Shayk (born Irina Valeryevna Shaykhlislamova) is a familiar fixture in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, but she’s just as popular online. On Twitter, she has nearly a million followers, on Facebook, she has more than 7 million followers, and on Instagram, she has more than 12 million followers.
Coco Rocha is an outgoing and outspoken social media master. She’s acquired millions of followers across 13 social media platforms and wants nothing more than to use her power for good. Coco’s all about being a role model and making the industry a safer and healthier place for both new and experienced models.
