We’ve already shared our favorite fashion photogs on Instagram, and though they take the cake on composition, when it comes to getting in the shot, models are hard to beat. Put simply: no one takes better selfies than the models, which means they’re our best hope for improving our own. They also provide endless hairspiration, fashion-shoot access, and shopping ideas (Caroline Brasch Nielsen, we're looking at you).

    Hahaha, I love how you wrote TOM BRADY with capital letters, that's funny. I like looking at Gisele's photos. She is perfect and she like RMS Beauty products, and omg Doutzen Kroes is gorgeous even with zero makeup on.

    I have a love/hate relationship with following models on Instagram. They're too beautiful it hurts, but also they're just too beautiful to unfollow, know what I mean?
