14 JESSICA ROSE
Buxom brunette Jessica Rose was a contestant on this year’s Love Island, a British reality TV program where a host of beautiful young singles are placed in a luxury villa to find – you guessed it – love (or at the very least a good fumble in the dark). Prior to this, Jessica had a great Instagram following thanks to her career as a ‘model’ (i.e. cam girl) and chat line operator. Stunning from tip to the toe, Jessica entertains her avid fan base of 821k and rising with fitness tips, plenty of sexy selfies and updates. What more could you want?
13 YOVANNA VENTURA
21-year-old Miami native Yovanna Ventura is a social media star that shows no signs of slowing down. The 5’9 beauty has amassed an impressive online following for someone so young, with over 5 million followers. Ventura caught the eye of pop sensation Justin Bieber and the two briefly dated. You can follow Yovanna for plenty of eye popping, jaw dropping snaps of perfectly toned abs, gorgeous dark hair and plenty of bikinis. Represented by Wilhelmina models LA, we’re probably going to see much more of this Latina lady in the future – and lucky us. For a 21-year-old, she’s working this social media thing to her advantage. Go girl.
12 NINA AGDAL
While Nina Agdal was technically a model before she was an Instagram star, I’m going to make an exception. I don’t think you guys will mind. The 5’9 Scandinavian goddess has 1.6 million followers and is represented by IMG models. At 25, she’s doing pretty well for herself, having moved to the US to pursue her career. If subtle sexy is more your thing, then Nina is 100% for you. Agdal has a beautifully toned and sleek physique, and a certain kind of mystery that can’t be taught. Of course, it helps that her face is prettier than a Botticelli masterpiece. You can follow Nina to keep up with all of her latest work as she takes over the fashion stratosphere.
11 ROSIE ROFF
28-year-old Brit Rosie Roff was voted by FHM as one of the world’s top ‘100 sexiest women in the world’ in 2011 – not much has changed. The Instagram starlet started out as a ring girl and Top Rank Knockout for boxing events in Las Vegas. She makes a pretty penny from her endeavors and these days keeps her notoriety as a social media star, frequently posting revealing pictures to her accounts to keep the interest of her fans piqued. Roff is revered for her fitness regime and dedication to working out. Her fans remain loyal, with many tuning in for the boxing matches just to see Roff. Can you blame them?
10 GALINKA MIRGAEVA
Think of a cross between Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie, and you’ll come up with Russian stunner Galinka Mirgaeva. Not only is Galinka absolutely drop-dead gorgeous, but she thrills her 2.3 million followers with nearly naked shots and plenty of-the-moment snaps of her enviable lifestyle. If anyone made being an internet sensation look easy, it’s Galinka. Most of her pictures show her living it up on a beach somewhere with a drink in hand, a ready smile and a barely-there bikini. Let’s face it, who’s not into that? Let her pictures do the talking, and go and have a good old-fashioned stalk. You won’t regret it.
9 ABIGAIL RATCHFORD
It’s not hard to see how Abigail Ratchford notched up 7.8 million followers. One look at her pert derriere will tell you exactly why the young brunette has so many dedicated fans. The 25-year-old former beauty pageant contestant turned glamour model has appeared in a variety of men’s magazines thanks to her social media fame, including Sports Illustrated, Zoo Weekly, Nuts, Esquire, Maxim and Playboy. If you follow Ratchford you can keep up to date with a variety of interesting facts about the world chess championships and – okay, who am I kidding. You can expect lingerie, boobs and butt. If that’s not what you’re looking for, you’re in the wrong place.
8 INES HELENE
Everything they say about Swedish women being beautiful is completely and utterly true. Ines Helene has more curves than a roller coaster, and she wants to take you along for the ride. With an impressive following of 1.7 million, the brunette beauty keeps you up to date with life in London, fitness tips, plenty of cleavage shots and a pout that will make you wonder why it took you so long to discover her. Helene’s beauty has made her a super popular Instagram sensation, but it’s her savvy selection of pictures that has kept her at the top. Tell us your favorite Inis Helene snap in the comments.
7 ALYSSA ARCE
Playmate Alyssa Arce frequently pushes the boundaries, laughing in the face of Instagram’s nudity policy. Just a quick flick through Arce’s feed will show you a host of blurred out nipples and very close to the knuckle raunchy snaps. Arce also spent some one-on-one time with Justin Bieber back in 2014, so it’s a little surprising that her Instagram following is a little on the low side for a recent Playboy model, standing at 478k. How many of you will be following Acre after reading this article? Show the girl some love – it would be rude not to, wouldn’t it?
6 SAHARA RAY
Sahara Ray is the modern day equivalent to Pamela Anderson. Blonde hair coupled with a luscious pout has helped Ray to acquire 1.3 million followers. Believe it or not, Ray is ANOTHER one of Justin Bieber’s ex-girlfriends, so this list is pretty much a lesson in the types of women Bieber goes for – i.e. hot, young and attractive. The swimwear designer is a staple on the social scene and can often be found in magazines, particularly in The Daily Mail. The Australian native really isn’t famous for much other than her sizzling Instagram snaps, but we're here for it. A quick search on Google will come up with a plethora of articles pointing you to her slick physique and love for the ocean.
5 CARLY LAUREN
Here we have another Playmate in the form of Carly Lauren. Lauren captivates her 1.2 million strong audience with a string of teasing photographs – although, beware of the green eyed monster, this social media siren is happily married off. Despite being one of Hef’s crew, the blonde haired vixen likes to keep it relatively PG on her Instagram feed, instead hypnotizing fans with a mixture of behind the scenes shots and smoldering looks. Lauren is currently in the process of building and launching her very own blog, so fans will soon be able to keep up to date with her via that platform too. Clearly this is one lady intent on building her brand.
4 LIRA MERCER
Lira Mercer strikes an uncanny resemblance to Nikki Minaj – and her appeal doesn’t stop there. At just 23-years-old, the Houston native has built her brand from the bottom up. With a solid following of 3.6 million, Mercer keeps her fans on their toes with a selection of tantalizing candid shots of her awe-inspiring curves. American rapper Rick Ross was engaged to Mercer for a short while, however the relationship ended. Fun fact – Mercer is part of a pretty impressive girl squad, with close friends like Amber Rose and Blac Chyna. The starlet also has some impressive ex credentials, including Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Wale, Meek Mill and oh, what a surprise – Justin Bieber.
3 MISA CAMPO
Misa Campo is an up and coming social media star. Even at a tame following of 275k followers, that’s not to be sniffed at. The half-German half-Filipino model is nothing short of pure fire. Not a huge amount is really known about Campo, but her shots definitely expose a side of her that’s helping to slowly but surely build a social media empire that most of us could only fantasize about. Sometimes the slow burners are the best ones, and Campo is certainly worth a follow if you’re into a dark and moody aesthetic with so much sass it almost hurts.
2 EMILY SEARS
There’s nothing more attractive than a boss babe building her empire with clear determination. The Australian entrepreneur has turned heads since day one, appearing on the cover of Zoo, FHM and Maxim. Not only has Emily Sears got a doll like face and a svelte figure, she’s a girl’s girl and avid feminist. Her feed is littered with pictures of her glamorous day to day life, ample assets and beautiful smile. If anyone makes being IG famous look hella fun, It’s Emily Sears. Hop straight over to the beauty’s IG and click follow. It’ll be the best thing you do all day – or, all year.
1 DEMI ROSE MAWBY
Hailing from the UK, Demi Rose Mawby could teach a masterclass in how to get rich by being hot. Although the sultry brunette has only had Instagram for four years, Mawby has racked up 4.6 million followers. That kind of following pays well – and that’s all too apparent by her Instagram feed. The 22-year-old took a massive leap of faith when she used her Instagram popularity to move to the US and pursue a full time modelling career, but luckily it worked out. Her toned body, petite waist and sculpted abs have gone down a storm, even tempting Kylie Jenner’s ex Tyga in 2016.
