The competition on Instagram is something fierce, and, no, showing a bit (or more) of skin is not enough to take you to the top.
Besides the looks of a model, you need creativity to develop a new picture in a striking pose continually. And it’s not easy at all.
Here are a few of the most successful Instagram models in some of their best photos, the kind of photos that have followers hit the Like button in an instant.
10 Madison Beer
Madison Beer is a 22-year old American singer of Jewish origins, which explains the Middle-Eastern sensuality evident in her traits.
While countless others use social media for a shot at fame, Madison uses Instagram mainly to promote her music career, a career she’s wanted since she was 13, and posting videos on YouTube doing covers of popular songs.
She was lucky enough to catch the eye of none other than Justin Bieber, who helped her get signed with a record label.
9 Lana Rhoades
To look at her sweet innocent face, you wouldn’t know that Lana Rhoades first made a name for herself not on Instagram but in the porn industry.
However, now that she quit porn, she says doing Instagram is way more fun and pays better. Lana says she’s made millions on Instagram but does admit that her former career helped her grow an impressive amount of followers.
Her advice to beautiful young girls – work on your social media accounts rather than try adult the film industry, which she finds scary and not glamorous.
8 Gabrielle Wolf
Young Gabrielle is one of the sexiest girls on Instagram. Super slim and blonde, Gabrielle Wolf channels the party girl air of a much younger Paris Hilton, although she’s way, way more pretty.
When she’s not doing photo shoots, the American model hangs out with her friends or travels the world searching for exotic beaches.
7 Sierra Skye
American Sierra Skye is a swimsuit model, and just a look at her killer body is enough to understand how she got that contract.
She’s a fitness maniac and keeps to a rigorous diet to keep in shape. Her incredible physique has helped her earn more than 4 million followers on Instagram, and she tries not to disappoint them.
When she’s not presenting swimwear, Sierra does racy lingerie.
