Despite hitting 225 million Instagram followers this month – and gaining another million since – 40-year-old Kim Kardashian isn’t the most-followed member of her famous family. The reality star and makeup mogul made a big deal of her “225 MIL” as she sunbathed poolside in a bikini on Thursday, with over 5 million likes left. Turns out, Kim is battling her little sister when it comes to the Instagram following wars, and 23-year-old Kylie Jenner is winning. See who’s got how many followers below.
Scroll for photos. “225 MIL LOVE U FOR LIFE” was the SKIMS founder’s message as she showed off her poolside perks and summer-ready figure while celebrating her success. Kim, who is known for her family hit E! show alongside sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, plus Kendall and Kylie Jenner, comes in at the #2 slot.
Most-followed is Lip Kit queen Kylie Jenner, whose 238 million followers might even see her set to overtake the platform’s most-followed female face : singer Ariana Grande.
Kylie, who broke Instagram’s likes record in 2018 with the arrival of daughter Stormi, is rapidly gaining fans, as is 25-year-old sister Kendall, who is fresh from launching her 818 tequila brand. The Calvin Klein face boasts 167 million followers, coming in a little ahead of 36-year-old Khloe Kardashian, whose following sits at 151 million.
Once considered the underdog and told she’s the “least interesting to look at” in a catfight with Kim, is Kourtney Kardashian. The Poosh founder boasts 125 million followers. More photos below.
Mom of one Kylie, fresh from announcing new brand Kylie Baby, has opened up on being a mega face on social media. This year, she spoke to Tmrw, telling the magazine: “I’m fully aware of the influence that I have, I try to be a good role model but I mostly just try to be myself.”
“I think growing up I always knew that my older sisters got a lot of attention, but I don’t really remember when it switched to include me,” the Kylie Skin founder added. Skip the jump for more photos.
In 2020, the Kardashian family announced that their 2007-commenced family show was ending. Kim told fans: “We are beyond grateful to all of you who’ve watched us for all of these years – through the good times, the bad times, the happiness, the tears, and the many relationships and children.”
It isn’t the end, though, with the Calabasas-based clan, including “momager” Kris Jenner set to feature on a new series, aired on Hulu. Kris, 65, has 41.2 million followers. Scroll for how much Kendall’s tequila costs!
