We may be only 6 months into the year, but there's no doubt that 2015 will go down in history as the Year of the Instagram bodies. From songs about butts, to parodies of songs about butts, to some of the most shocking red carpet outfits that showcase celebrity bodies, the badonkadonk is the talk of the town, or rather, the world this year. Celebrities know that social media has become a critical aspect of their fame, and it provides them with a way to interact more personally with fans. Some celebrities like to get REALLY personal, and that often includes showcasing their fabulous bodies on Instagram - some celebrities more than others. Here are 11 women who show off their majorly sexy body parts on Instagram and most of the time its their butts.
11 Stephanie Smith @stephclairesmith
Stephanie Smith is a model whose use of Instagram played a big role in her fame. The gorgeous blonde shows off her amazingly toned figure (and those incredible eyebrows!) to her nearly 700,000 followers. Smith was born in Australia, and at only 21 years old she already has an impressive modelling resume and gets to travel to amazing locales, which she shares with her followers. Of course, her followers are also treated to booty shots like the one you see above.
10 Laura Gordon @cttchickentuna
You will be hard-pressed to find a collection of Instagrammers who share sexy snaps of their amazing rear ends that doesn't include Laura Gordon. The NYC-born real estate broker now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. She admits she doesn't like working out and in her Instagram bio she includes that she's "busting a$s." Pun intended? She has over 450,000 followers and they're regularly treated to shots of her perfectly toned butt. Would you believe she's 47 years old? If you'd like to find out just what she does to get that incredible figure, you can read all about it on her blog.

This British television personality who was one of the stars of the reality show hit "The Only Way is Essex," is known for her lively personality as well as her perky bum.

7 Rihanna @badgalriri
6 Aisha Thalia @aishathalia
🙆 Messy hair day (everyday lol) while I sit, vibe and discover new hiphop artists on @cyphercircuit - for those who don't know me I'm a super hiphop head. 🎧 Those who went to college with me know I've always been down with the underground. My friends call me the human jukebox. 😂 One of my best friends @moeknowsbest was instrumental in a few cities for throwing awesome parties, bringing me to my first clubs, my first Dj battles, b-boy competitions, and even let me do some graffiti on one of the bars of his after hours spot (I draw too!) I was so proud when he told me about how he is starting @cyphercircuit where new and established artists can have a place to network and I was like OF COURSE - this is what we need. An organic site for artists to vibe. 💚🙏 The website provides members with a professional online presence, displaying artists’ music, videos, biography, and links to their social media. Cypher Circuit has established partnerships with hip-hop events and promoters to provide their members with actual performance opportunities. That's dope! @MCREMonday is a weekly Freestyle Challenge that they sponsor, encouraging emcees to post videos on Instagram for the chance to win prizes. www.CypherCircuit.com #cyphercircuit #hiphop #lyrics #beats #cypher #realhiphop #undergroundhiphop #bars #emcee #lyricist #lyrics #rapper #hiphopculture #moeknowsbest #90shiphop #newyork #phillyp

Aisha, who has her Masters in Education, describers herself as a "free spirit, light seeker, lover, bikini guru, vegan" and clearly, whatever she's doing is working!
5 Jen Selter @jenselter
Jen Selter may only be 21, but she's made quite a name for herself in the fitness modelling world, and many credit that to her epic butt! The New Yorker shows off her perfectly toned and tight figure to over 6.3 million Instagram followers every day. Once you see her pictures, you'll understand why so many people keep up with her! Shelter rose to fame by sharing "belfies" (you know, butt + selfie) and before we knew it, she was a bonafide celebrity.
4 Caitlin Rice @caitlinricefit
Caitlin Rice is one of the fittest and most popular Instagram fitness models and she boasts more than 784,000 followers. On Caitlin's website, www.caitlinricefit.com, fans can purchase her workout programs and work towards achieving the kind of muscle definition she has. By the looks of it, it'll include a whole lot of squats! The Canadian model also posts client transformations from those who have followed her program and it sure looks effective!
3 Lea Michele @msleamichele
She may have played a very good girl on Glee, but Lea Michele isn't afraid to show off her more daring side to her 2.1 million Instagram followers! The 28-year-old actress and singer clearly lives an active lifestyle which she shares with her fans through pictures of her workouts and healthy meals. She also shows off her petite and toned figure in tiny, cheek-baring bikinis regularly. What would Rachel Berry say?
2 Chrissy Teigen @chrissyteigen
She may be the wife of superstar John Legend, but Chrissy Teigen is also a super successful model, food blogger, TV host, and all around nice and funny person (as evidenced by what she shares on social media). Never one to hold back on sexy pictures like this one of her toned butt, Teigen is always sure to add funny captions and she gets real with her followers, even showcasing her stretch marks (yep - supermodels have them too!).
1 Emily Ratajkowski @emrata
Model and actress Emily Ratajkowki shot to fame after starring in Robin Thicke's risqué video for "Blurred Lines" in which she appeared wearing only shoes and underwear! The 24-year-old quickly became a major sex-symbol thanks to her modelling work, but she has also appeared in acclaimed films like Gone Girl. She proudly shares her sexy figure with butt shots like this from photo shoots and from her own personal adventures to her 2.5 million Instagram followers.Sources: youtube.com, people.com, chickentuna.tumblr.com, kaylaitsines.com, usmagazine.com
