Candice Swanepoel and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
10 Models with the Most Instagram Followers–Who doesn’t love Instagram? In fashion, just about everyone is on the social media site from editors to photographers to labels and models. Which had us thinking…who are the models with the most Instagram followers?
We made the list with one criteria in mind: modeling has to be the main occupation of each girl ranked (so models who are more known for producing, acting, etc. do not apply). What we found looking at the numbers is that it certainly helps to be linked with Victoria’s Secret or a major brand of some sort. With that in mind, check out the 10 models with the most Instagram followers below.
