Having accumulated a whopping 10.5 million Instagram followers in just two years, Gossip Girl star Blake Lively’s first post to the app cleverly ousted pre-existing fake social media accounts using her name. Addressing her fans, the starlet penned, “Hello =) Sorry to any of you who’ve been following fake accounts”, smiling joyfully in her first ever upload, which promoted the handmade, one-of-a-kind designs of @preserve_us.
2. Michelle Obama
Just over 3 years ago, everyone's favourite First Lady Michelle Obama uploaded her first ever picture to Instagram, updating her followers with a post from Senegal, Africa. “My first instagram! So inspired and impressed by these extraordinary young women #FLOTUSinAfrica.”
3. Victoria Beckham
Sharing an image of a baby bottle filled with “Juice not milk!”, Victoria Beckham’s first Instagram post used this border inspired by old film cameras, a feature that the social media giants have recently removed from the app’s editing software.
4. Taylor Swift
In true T-Swift fashion, the world famous songstress took a trip down memory lane by uploading this vintage photograph of her grandmother as her first flick, accompanied by the caption “Found this photo of my grandmother. So lovely.”
Using one of the original graffiti-style frames as a border, it’s fair to say that Swifty’s insta-game has dramatically improved in the almost 5 years she’s been ‘gramming!
5. Selena Gomez
As the most followed celeb on the colossal social network, with 94 million followers to date, Selena Gomez’s first ‘gram was this video aimed at hyping up her fans for her then-upcoming studio album Stars Dance.
6. Kim Kardashian
Kim K’s Instagram feed has not always been the glossy, highly edited, fashion-forward page you see today. Back in February, 2012, the tabloid queen uploaded this pouty shot, stating, “My first Instagram pic…Kisses for Instagram!”
7. Kylie Jenner
Signing up to share intimate moments with her fans even before famed sister Kim, 'King Kylie's' first shot of this glamorous fireplace, uploaded at age 14, differs greatly to her recent picture-perfect selfies and promotions of Kylie Cosmetics!
Succumbing to the hype of Instagram by finally making an account in early 2013, Queen B’s first upload was this spirited picture encouraging fans to vote for Obama. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, the Run The World singer has consistently used her social media platforms to advocate support for the Obama administration.
