See The Top 10 Celebrity Models Who Gained Most Instagram Followers In 2016

Gigi Hadid gained a shit-ton of followers on Instagram in 2016. So many, in fact, that she tops a list, made by Instagram themselves, of models and designers who gained the most fans this year.

Gigi more than doubled her reach this year, increasing her follower count by 16,033,757. That means that over 26 million people get her daily updates on the social media platform.

She’s not the only model with a gain over 10 million though. Cara Delevingne got over 14 million new followers in 2016, bringing her total up to 35.6 million.
