There’s nothing more we love in life than scrolling through the Instagram feeds of our favourite stars after a long and tiresome day, and 2015 has brought some pretty golden photos into our lives.
Last year the world went crazy for the snap of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding, a Justin Bieber selfie and photo of Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande’s antics – but which photos managed to rack up the most likes in the last 12 months?
In no particular order, here are the most popular photos on Instagram of 2015 … and brace yourself, because there’s a whole lotta Taylor Swift ahead of you.
1. Kendall Jenner
Coming from a family that constantly hogs the limelight, it’s somewhat unsurprising the most-liked photo of the year belongs to Kendall Jenner. If that victory wasn’t sweet enough, the model stole the title from her big sister Kim Kardashian, whose wedding photo was Instagram’s most popular with 2.4 million likes … until Kendall’s heart-shaped hair came along.
2. Taylor Swift
We’ll never quite forget that Kanye West incident, in which he stormed on stage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards to interrupt Taylor Swift’s award acceptance speech. Still, the awkward moment is a thing of the past for the pair – just look at the huge bouquet of roses the rapper sent Taylor after she presented him with the MTV Video Vanguard Award this year.
When Beyonce shared a Flashback Friday snap from a 2013 Vogue photoshoot, we just couldn’t help but hit the heart button. The combination of an adorable Blue Ivy and the fierce Queen Bey was enough to propel the shot into Instagram’s top 10 of 2015.
4. Taylor Swift (again)
Taylor Swift makes another appearance on Instagram’s most popular photos of 2015 – and brace yourself, because there’s plenty more of her to come … and if there’s anything the world loves more than T-Swizzle, it’s gotta be T-Swizzle and her cat/s.
5. Kylie Jenner
Dressed in a mortar board and lavish-looking gown, Kylie Jenner’s glamorous graduation photo went down pretty well with the people of Instagram. The teen celebrated completing high school with a spectacular surprise party we all wished we’d received an invitation to.
6. Taylor Swift (AGAIN)
Taylor Swift is obviously doing something right this year, as she makes YET ANOTHER appearance. In the candid snap, the singer hitches a ride on boyfriend Calvin Harris’s back as the two celebrate Independence Day.
7. Kendall Jenner
To celebrate a milestone 20 million followers, Kendall Jenner treated fans to an up-close-and-personal selfie, dressed in black and looking stunning (as usual). A little over 10 months later, the model’s number of followers have more than doubled – and still rising!
8. Taylor Swift (getting a little repetitive now…)
Another day, another cat-selfie from Taylor Swift, and another photo that made the top 10 of 2015…
9. Selena Gomez
When a fresh-faced Selena Gomez snapped this car selfie in her favourite grey jumper, she probably wasn’t expecting it to make as big an impact on the world as it did. But it did, and not even selfie-extraordinaire Kim Kardashian could outshine Selena’s selfie this year.
10. Taylor Swift (the last one, we promise)
Clearly Taylor Swift’s face (or her cat’s) is not one the world tires of.
