With 93 million followers on Instagram, it’s no surprise that Jenner is behind some of the most popular pictures on the photo-sharing platform. An image of the young reality show star holding up her high school diploma used to be among the top 10 most-liked Instagram pictures of all time, with over 2.3 million likes.

More recently, Jenner beat her own record by posting one of the most-buzzed about photos from the 2017 Met Gala (despite the “no social media” policy at the event). The star-studded bathroom selfie (above) included her sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian West, Oscar winner Brie Larson, model Lily Aldridge, and P. Diddy, among others. It earned over 3.3 million likes on Instagram.

A photo of Gomez drinking from a Coke bottle that featured her own lyrics has earned 6.6 million likes.

The photo earned more than 7.8 million likes in under 24 hours when Beyoncé posted it in February 2017. It has since gone to garner even more attention, with a current whopping total of 10.9 million likes.
