The First Photos of Celebrities Uploaded to Instagram

These are the first photos uploaded by celebrities to their Instagram accounts.


Instagram was officially launched in 2010, almost a decade ago, but it wasn't until 2011 when Instagram began to grow at an unpredictable pace. Since then, many people use Instagram daily to share photos with the world. In recent years the social network has changed a lot, we took on the task of looking for the first photos of celebrities uploaded to Instagram.

Celebrities like Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner, or Zendaya are now very large people on the platform — thanks to the help of their teams — but it wasn't always that way. Today you will see the first photos that were uploaded to Instagram by celebrities who used the "Valencia" filter.
