Have you tried Pinterest, the bookmark sharing website? If the usage stats from ShareThis are any indication, you probably have. In a recent study, they found that Pinterest has surpassed email for the most popular way to share things online. In fact, Pinterest saw a 58% growth in 2013. Users create their own boards, whether about food, style or DIY projects, and pin their favorite things to those boards.
But the regular public aren't the only ones adding their favorite things to their Pinterest boards. Celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon, too. Singers post pictures from their worldwide tours, actors post about their favorite home decor and models show off their important fashion choices.
If you've ever wanted to drool over the lifestyle choices of the rich and famous, celebrity Pinterest boards are the way to go. Read on for 10 celebrity Pinterest accounts that will make you wish you were famous.
