When you think of Instagram, what immediately pops into your head? If you thought of hot celebrity selfies, then welcome to the club. This social media site is known as a paradise for photos that are inspiring, sexy, and everything in between. And if you are like most Instagram users, you tend to follow a lot of your favorite Hollywood stars.
What we want to do is just call your attention to some celebrity photos that you might not have seen on Instagram. Just one look at these hotties and you will be keeping tabs on their Instagram posts day in and day out. Sure, a lot of these pictures include bikini bodies and beach vacations, but there is also more to it than that. These images show women who are proud to be who they are; they own their looks and their beauty, and their confidence really resonates with the viewer. And while other girls may get jealous of these celebs, just remember that there are filters for Instagram, people!
But we aren’t going to go there, because clearly a filter can only do so much, and we assume that these women look just as lovely as they do on our computer or cell phone screens. So sit back, relax, and get ready to see some of the hottest images to hit Instagram. You’re welcome!
15. Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff, you have changed so much, and yet you haven’t changed at all. We still admire you for your wonderful personality and the way you just shrug off the haters with so much dignity and class. Plus, you have one of the most beautiful children in Hollywood. Hilary is what every single mother aspires to be, as her fashion sense always looks on point, whether she is dropping her son Luca off to school or if she is hitting the red carpet for a night on the town. Hilary has come a long way since her Lizzie McGuire days, and yet she still reminds us of that fun-loving and down to earth girl we fell in love with over a decade ago.
14. Kate Hudson
Oh, those obliques! Goodness, we really need to find out what Kate Hudson’s workout routine is, because it is beyond working. Everything about this photo screams sexy, as Kate is posing with her smartphone while getting close to a mirror to show off her toned abs and an itty-bitty-polka-dot bikini. She appears to be with a friend in this photo, and the two of them must be going through Kate’s closet, because there is a whole lot of clothes piled up all around. Yet amazingly, it doesn’t seem cluttered. Of course, Kate Hudson would not be a clutterbug or a packrat, right? Right?! Anyway, besides being super jelly of her incredibly defined obliques, just about everything in her closet is the stuff of every female’s dreams. Shoes, clothes, bags, accessories… did she rob the Gucci store or what? This pic is both flirty and fun.
13. Jennifer Lopez
In case you didn’t already know, Jennifer Lopez is #WOMANGOALS. Jennifer’s fashion sense is always flawless, and she never fails to impress. Whether she is dancing to her own hit singles, sharing the stage with Pitbull, serving as a mentor to aspiring singers, filming a romantic comedy, or just lounging at home with her adorable twins, Jennifer Lopez is the woman that every woman secretly (or not so secretly) wants to be. We knew that this woman was made of star power the minute we saw her. She can still rock her persona as Jenny from the Block, but she is also a wonderful mother, an amazing mentor, and a role model that we need more of in this world. She is totally confident in who she is and where she’s going. In this Instagram pic, she showed off her bootylicious bod in a form-fitting skirt with matching crop top, all decked out in sequins. Perfection.
12. Adriana Lima
Yes please, Adriana Lima. We will be your workout buddy any time, any day, anywhere. The hottie model has plenty of Instagram followers who will lavish her with praise, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have to include her on our list here. Adriana looked totally cute and sizzlingly sexy with this workout selfie, in which she donned her awesome fitness clothes. The model was decked out in a mostly black ensemble, complete with form-fitting yoga pants and an attractive Nike sports bra. This is probably when sales for Nike products went through the roof. Thanks, Adriana! Besides the clever product placement, Adriana was giving her lovers a “V” for victory. Bonus points for her excellent choice in nail polish, which perfectly matched her sexy gym attire. Extra bonus points for the clear-cut view of her toned and defined abs. So, is everything about this woman perfect? Yes.
11. Troian Bellisario
30 years old and a native of Los Angeles, California, Troian Bellisario took us on a wild ride of the feels whenever she posts on her Instagram. This girl seriously knows her angles (although we doubt that she has a bad angle.) In this beach selfie, Troian was lying on her back while tanning herself in the sand. She had a chic pair of sunnies on and a burgundy red bikini. One thing that we absolutely love about this selfie is that she had her hair dampened (probably from a dip in the ocean), and her arms and chest were still spotted with droplets of water when she snapped the selfie. Ugh, that was just the icing on the cake to make this one of the hottest selfies on Instagram in a while! Even the pendant and her petite necklace falls ideally onto the dip in her clavicle. Like we said, this girl knows her angles!
10. Gwen Stefani
Dressed in fishnet tights and layered with sexy eye makeup, singer Gwen Stefani is looking fine in this Instagram pic. We love that Gwen went for a glamorous selfie that was not blatantly oozing sex appeal. Sometimes it really is best to leave a little to the imagination, and Gwen perfectly captured that aesthetic. Also, can you believe that Gwen is 46 years old? It’s crazy, because she just never seems to age. Honestly, Gwen has looked 25 for the past two decades, so how could we not put her on this list? You work it girl; such an inspiration! And guess who is now a newlywed? That’s right – Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have officially tied the knot. Say hello to Mrs. Gwen Stefani Sheldon. The two are like a couple of teenagers in love, except this is more than puppy love. Get ready for hot Instas of the pair!
9. Kylie Jenner
Showing off her curves and her assets, Kylie Jenner is unabashedly putting it all out there in this Instagram pic. Her model sister Kendall Jenner better watch out because there might be some competition coming from the fam! In her latest endeavour to knock the other Kardashians off of their pedestals, Kylie appeared in a PartyNextDoor music video, and it was super steamy. The video is for the song “Come and See Me,” and it features Kylie getting some major lip action in a shower scene.
8. Gigi Hadid
The model snapped a selfie and posted it to Instagram and probably made countless fans squeal with joy. This photo is seriously sizzling and made perfect sense for a top model. We also love that Gigi tells girls to “eat a burger to stay sane” every now and then, because being a model or even a woman in today’s world is a tough job! That kind of work ethic is super sexy, indeed, Miss Top Model of the 21st Century.
7. Rita Ora
Pulling out all the stops here was singer Rita Ora, who has achieved the all-elusive “V-cut” abs. The photo is a huge departure from the recent news surrounding Rita, as she was faced with a home invasion at her property worth some $1.2 million. Scary stuff, but she took to her Insta (with her two adorable puppies) to release the tension and interact with her fans.
6. Kendall Jenner
Well, Kendall Jenner, it looks as though you managed to beat out your younger sister and rank a bit higher on our sexy pictures of Instagram list. Congrats! That being said, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering that Kendall has modelled for Calvin Klein underwear ads and loads of other publications. And if you thought that Kendall wouldn’t be able to pull off the goth look, well, designer Marc Jacobs wants to prove you all wrong. He has Kendall dress up in an all black look to promote his Fall 2016 collection. It’s not sexy, but it’s fashion, apparently.
5. Behati Prinsloo
There are lots of reasons why Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is in a relationship with model Behati Prinsloo. And in case you weren’t sure about them, Behati decided to give you a visual aid via an Instagram photo. Lately, Behati has been making a splash with her very pregnant figure. Donning a little black dress, she looked absolutely divine as she went to a Los Angeles event with her hubby. That baby is going to be so gorgeous; we can’t wait to see Behati and Adam’s little bundle of joy!
4. Shay Mitchell
The beautiful actress and model from Canada gave us a sensual and surreal selfie on her Instagram. Wearing nothing but a towel (and water droplets from her shower) Shay posed perfectly with her dewy body and wet hair. This is a celeb who definitely knows the art of the selfie. She lined up the camera just right so that we could see the contours and angles of her clavicle (that’s sexy just to say) as well as cutting off the picture right below her nose, so all we see are plump and pouty lips. With this kind of composition, Shay could also be a professional photographer. She’s an artist and a work of art! Shay isn’t afraid to let her wild and crazy side out, and we love that she is a girl with personality. She just happens to be a super successful and hot actress as well! Her latest Insta was an I Dream of Genie-inspired ponytail.
3. Lea Michele
Remember back when Lea Michele first starred on Glee and we all thought that she was a super cute 22-year-old? Well, now she is more mature and she has definitely developed into one hot actress. The TV star showed off a delightful picture of her going for a dip in the pool. With the sun shining on her face, Lea titled her chin towards the sun, closer her eyes, and had someone snap the photo of her looking like a Grecian goddess. Lea is not only full of encouraging and inspiring words for her fans, but she delights their eyes with breath-taking bikini shots that will leave you feeling things. She doesn’t “want to fit any mold;” she wants “to be something” that can’t be replicated by anyone else. Mission accomplished, Lea!
2. Ashley Benson
This 26-year-old actress from Pretty Little Liars fits the requirements of a California beach babe to a T. Blonde, tanned, and downright gorgeous, she flashed us with a personal picture of her sunbathing at the beach. Well, we can’t get the picture of her out of our heads! The petite actress is a force in Hollywood, and with Pretty Little Liars sizzling up television news, expect to see her Insta become even more active. We’re definitely game for that.
1. Sofia Vergara
So…we know that it is physically impossible for Sofia Vergara to snap a selfie that isn’t #flawless. Yet the Latina actress and comedienne gave us such a special moment with a particular photo that we could stare at for hours on end. In the picture, Sofia is giving a genuine smile, looking bare-faced, and lounging by the pool of her home. We see her from the upper chest up, so her arms and shoulders are bare and her hair is down and looking lovely with natural, “beachy” waves. Those beautiful brown eyes of hers are to die for, and she looks so relaxed and joyful in this scene, all while exuding the confident and radiant sexiness that we know her for. The Colombian actress recently celebrated the beginning of summer with a bikini shot that perfectly showed off her assets. Just add a can of Diet Pepsi and we are good to go for the summer!
