Love it or hate it, social media plays a large role in our lives.
One of the many reasons that social media apps like Instagram thrive is because they give fans access to their favorite celebrities that we didn’t have 15 years ago. We don’t have to look at the “celebs… they’re just like us” section of a magazine to see what they’re up to because they can post whatever they want on social media for us to see.
With so many celebrities to follow on social media, we’ve narrowed it down to some of our favorite accounts to follow. We love these celebs for their authenticity, reliability, sense of fun, and great style.
1 & 2. Kate and William
Though the majority of their Instagram posts are dedicated to their lives as royals and various charitable projects, their content still feels personal and helps fans stay connected with them. We all love William and Kate for their generosity towards the public and modernizing the royal family, and seeing them both at home and at work makes us love them even more.
Their best posts are the ones involving their children (George, 8, Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3) and other senior members of the royal family. Though they’re literal royalty, they can’t help but come across as relatable and kind on social media, and we just love them for it.

3 & 4. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are one of our favorite celebrity couples, and they continue to prove how awesome they are on social media. Like many of our favorite celebrities, Blake’s social media strikes the perfect balance between personal and professional content. She promotes her acting career, business ventures, and philanthropic work, and also posts pictures of her baking and spending time with her family.
Blake jokes around with her husband, Ryan, on social media, who also chimes in on his Instagram page. He devotes the majority of his page to promoting his acting career and business ventures, but he always finds a way to add his signature sense of humor to everything he posts, and we love him for it.
5. Simone Biles
If you followed us during the Tokyo Olympics, you know how much we love Simone Biles! Her Instagram is the perfect mix of personal content like pictures of herself with her boyfriend and family and professional content regarding her gymnastics career, magazine spreads, and mental health advocacy.
We admire Simone for so many reasons, but her mental health advocacy takes the cake for the top reason why we adore her. After she withdrew from the team competition for mental health reasons at the Tokyo Olympics, she helped start a much-needed conversation about mental health in our country. Her social media content shows that despite being the top gymnast in the world, she's still human.

From her adorable relationship with Tom Holland to how she credits her family's support for her success, we can’t help but adore Zendaya! Though the majority of her content is professional and promotional, we can’t help but feel her authenticity while scrolling through her Instagram page.
And can we talk about her style? Though she’s beautiful enough to rock any garment, we can’t help but admire her impeccable taste in clothes. From the casual clothes she wears while promoting Euphoria to her gorgeous red carpet gowns, she always finds a way to look stunning, and we can’t help but admire her from her afar.
Follow Zendaya @zendaya.
7 & 8. Justin and Hailey Bieber
She’s a supermodel, he’s a pop star, and together they’re one of the hottest couples in Hollywood. We love Hailey’s sense of style and could scroll through her Instagram for fashion inspo all day. Her YouTube channel is also a favorite of ours, and she shares some of her favorite beauty tips and candidly interviews other celebrities.
Most of Justin’s social media promotes his music and fashion line, but we can’t get enough of when he posts an adorable picture of him with Hailey. We love his evolution from bad-boy pop star to married man, and we can see why he loves Hailey so much.
9. Emily DiDonato
We’re not exaggerating when we say we love everything about Emily DiDonato. From her sense of style to her candid message on body image, what is there not to love? Though she shares some fashion modeling-related content, we love how she documented her pregnancy on Instagram and showed us how to look effortlessly fabulous while pregnant.
Though she doesn’t post too many pictures with her husband Kyle Peterson, you can see their genuine connection when she does. We also can’t get enough of her Goldendoodle, Izzy. She might be the most authentic and relatable supermodel on Instagram, and we can’t help but love her for it.
Follow Emily @emilydidonato.
10 & 11. Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen
Tom Brady and Gisele have been the definition of #familygoals for several years now, and we’re not the only ones who love them for it. Most of Gisele’s content fits into the feel-good genre related to self-love and life lessons and pictures of her kids (Ben, 12, Vivian, 9, and she’s second mom to Tom’s eldest son, John, 14). Most of Tom’s content revolves around football, but we hope he’ll post more family-related content now that he's retired.
12. The Rock
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the most well-liked celebrities in Hollywood, and his Instagram page is filled with uplifting content that is sure to make your day. Our favorites are when he posts videos of his two youngest daughters (Jasmine, 6, and Tiana, 3) playing pranks on him.
He’s the perfect example of traditional masculinity and what a good man and father look like. We love how he empowers his daughters to be their best selves and goes out of his way to spread positivity online. In an era where it feels like bad news is everywhere, it’s nice to know that you’re guaranteed to smile when you look at The Rock’s Instagram page.

13 & 14. Katherine Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt
Whether you’ve been following us for a few years or a few minutes, you know how much we love Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger. Katherine’s feel-good content revolves around her famous family, especially her relationship with her mother, Maria Shriver. What we love about Katherine and Maria’s relationship is that it doesn’t feel like watching a famous mother-daughter duo, but one of our best friends spending time with her mom. Both women are incredibly poised and come off as kind, genuine, and relatable. We also love Katherine’s IGTV series, “Before, During, and After Baby,” where she shares her experiences with motherhood and interviews experts regarding everything related to fertility, pregnancy, and motherhood.
Chris is one of Hollywood’s well-liked stars, and we can see why by looking at his Instagram. Aside from professional and promotional content, his feel-good posts about his family and everyday life are the main reason why we love following him. We also love that both Katherine and Chris keep their one-year-old daughter, Lyla, off social media. Though we’d all love to see her (you know she’s adorable with two unreasonably attractive parents), we have so much respect for Katherine and Chris for trying their best to give her a childhood out of the spotlight.
15. Jennifer Garner
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few decades and are one of the few people on earth who doesn’t love Jennifer Garner, you need to check out her Instagram. If you love her as much as we do but haven’t checked out her Instagram, what are you doing with your life?
Despite being an A-list celebrity, most of her Instagram content isn’t centered around her acting career. From her “Pretend Cooking Show” to sharing her love of ballet with her followers, the majority of her content can be placed in the relatable or feel-good category. Her feed never fails to make us smile, and we love that she comes across more like an average American mom than a celebrity, making us wish we were friends IRL.
Follow Jennifer @jennifer.garner.
16 & 17. Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins
Though Lauren fits more into the influencer category, it’s hard to keep up with her without seeing what her country superstar husband is up to. Lauren gives fans a peek into what her life is like as a mom of four girls (Willa Gray, 6, Ada James, 4, Lennon Love, 2, and Lillie Carolina, 2 months), and isn’t afraid to share the less glamorous parts of motherhood, like her two eldest daughters accidentally getting a comb stuck in her hair, but it makes her relatable.
Though Thomas’ Instagram is more focused on promoting his music, the photos he shares of Lauren and the girls make his page one of our favorites. You can tell how much they love each other and their daughters, making them one of the most fun and refreshing couples to follow.
18. Reese Witherspoon
Forever Elle Woods in our eyes, Reese’s social media content strikes the balance between her personal and professional life. She shares updates regarding her book club (10/10 recommend following, she has great taste), acting career, and clothing line Draper James, and we can’t get enough.
She also shares photos of herself with her husband and kids and isn’t afraid to post some nostalgic content every once in a while. She may be an A-list celebrity, but following her on social media reminds us that she’s no different than any of us, and we love her for it.

She’s the definition of a superstar, but you wouldn’t know it from Beyoncé's Instagram. Though the vast majority of her content is centered around her career, and we often see her living out her ultra-glamorous lifestyle on private jets and limos, she doesn’t come across as a snob.
She has a unique ability to come across as kind while being one of the most famous people in the world, and it’s reflected in her social media content. She also has an awesome sense of style, making her a must-follow for anyone interested in fashion.
