5 engaged A-listers to follow on Instagram
For a lot of us, Instagram serves two specific purposes: firstly, it allows us to place filters over our photographs which render us thinner / more tan / generally more acceptable and, secondly, it allows us to do some serious stalking - of our friends, neighbours and of Hollywood A-listers who have been good enough to set up profiles and regularly update them (no Angelina here).
Our favorite celebrity subjects are - surprise, surprise - those gals who are engaged and planning their nuptials. Keeping an eye on their photo uploads give us the chance to see where they're at in the planning process! In Kim Kardashian's case, her feed is more about selfies than weddings, while Lauren Conrad's snap-happy with insta-ready shots of flower arrangements, herself and her fiancé William Tell and friends' weddings (getting inspiration, LC?). Here's our selection of the top five engaged ladies on Instagram!
Well, duh! Kim K's undoubtedly the queen of impending nuptials - with a rumored 20-something days to go until she and Kanye tie the knot in a Parisian location with approximately $10 million dollars of favors to give to each guest. You won't get much insight into wedding planning from Kim's feed, but you will get some truly excellent selfies and an #OTD diary that's made us more jealous than ever of Kim's A-list lifestyle.
Lauren Conrad is, hands down, our favorite reality TV star. Who can forget her amazing one-liners ("I want to forgive you and I want to forget you") and the fact that Speidi could never have existed without LC's reliably self-righteous TV persona? Her Instagram feed is almost as beautiful as her editorial website, and we're obviously not the only ones who think so - Lauren recently wrote a feature on LaurenConrad.com detailing how you, too, can get the perfect Instagram snaps.
If y'all haven't been watching Being Mary Jane, you are missing out on one of the funniest, most woman-friendly TV shows of the past 10 years. Gabrielle Union's successful, smart and slightly crazy Mary Jane is one of the warmest TV characters you'll meet - and her personal style makes us seriously rethink our working wardrobes on the regular! On Instagram, Gabrielle is super sharey: shots of cast and crew as well as bed selfies (above) and pics of herself and fiancé Dwayne Wade.
Where would a round-up of soon-to-be-married A-listers be without the inclusion of front-row darling, Olivia Palermo? We'll admit to being exceptionally jealous of Olivia's seemingly perfect life - and her even more perfect fiancé, Johannes Huebl - but at least via her Instagram we get to share the joy (a little!). There are outfit shots, couple shots and insights into her jet-set lifestyle, as well as holiday snaps that would even give Rihanna a bad case of green-eye.
Finally? Perrie Edwards is the girlband member you've probably never heard of - except in relation to her delicious fiancé, One Direction's Zayn Malik. Her Instagram shows the super-cute blond cosying up to the smouldering boybander at every opportunity - and who could blame her? There's not too much wedding-planning going on just yet, but she's so worth following for behind-the-scenes footage of our favorite One Directioner. (Close second? Irishman Niall Horan - what can we say? The accent gets us every time!)
