Gigi Hadid was the most popular model on Instagram in 2016

After slaying in the Victoria’s Secret Parade this week, Gigi Hadid has something else to be proud of: she’s the most popular model on Instagram for 2016.

Gigi more than doubled her followers after 16,033,757 accounts decided to follow her this year. That means that over 26 million people get her daily updates on the social media platform. Holy shit balls!

She’s technically not the most followed – other models including Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne have more, but her sharp increase in 2016 alone means people were more obsessed by her than any other model.

Bella Hadid made the list too, coming in at number four. Those Hadid sisters just slay all day.
