FA­MOUS LAST NAMES Sophia, Sistine and Scar­let Stal­lone

@sophi­astal­lone | @sistinestal­lone | @scar­let­stal­lone | 1.5M fol­low­ers com­bined It’s the Miss Golden Globe girls! The triple-threat Stal­lone sis­ters were given the hon­our of hand­ing out the awards at the 2017 cer­e­mony, with then 14-year-old Scar­let the youngest ever to do so. NTB at all. But be­ing Rocky’s off­spring ap­par­ently does have its down­sides — Sistine’s adamant most of her In­sta fol­low­ers are just fans of her dad. We think each of their ’grams is worth a fol­low, whether you’re a Sly fan or not.

Lot­tie Moss @lot­tiemossxo | 191k fol­low­ers

Not many 19-year-olds go from mod­el­ling for their par­ents’ vin­tage store to be­ing shot for Teen Vogue, but when you’re Kate’s half-sis­ter, it’s ba­si­cally a given. Lot­tie also man­aged to jug­gle her A lev­els while wow­ing at the Cannes Film Fes­ti­val,

so maybe you re­ally can have it all.

Frances Bean Cobain @space_witch666 | 746k fol­low­ers

With a name that refers to the fact that dad Kurt thought she looked like a kid­ney bean in her ul­tra­sound, 25 years later, Frances mod­els, cre­ates art and has an an­noy­ing ex she just can’t seem to shake. Totes re­lat­able. The face of Marc Ja­cobs’ SS17 cam­paign, she later tagged her im­age on the bill­board on Mel­rose Place in a move she called “just a cou­ple of ban­dits leav­ing their mark”. Will she be­come the Banksy of It-girls? Time will tell…

Paris Jack­son @paris­jack­son | 2.2M fol­low­ers

The daugh­ter of the late MJ has been in the spot­light her whole life, and has been em­brac­ing it lately, ap­pear­ing on the cover of mags in­clud­ing Rolling Stone, CR Fash­ion Book and Harper’s Bazaar. She’s

an out­spo­ken ac­tivist and uses her pro­file to draw at­ten­tion to is­sues like the Dakota Ac­cess Pipe­line. Her pas­sion and care­free at­ti­tude some­how bal­ance out per­fectly, so we want what she’s hav­ing ASAP.

MU­SIC MOGULS IN THE MAK­ING Ti­nashe @tinashenow | 2M fol­low­ers

MAC de­scribes her as part of “the next gen­er­a­tion of women shap­ing mu­sic’s fu­ture” and we defo agree! Ti­nashe’s d-floor filler ‘2 On’ with School­boy Q took her ca­reer to the next level, adding to a CV al­ready pep­pered with danc­ing, act­ing and mod­el­ling cred­its. Be­fore she was get­ting 2 on, she was part of girl group The Stun­ners, who sup­ported Justin Bieber on his My World Tour. Since then she’s toured with Ma­roon 5, col­lab­o­rated with A$AP Rocky and Charli XCX, pro­moted her own MAC eye­shadow pal­ette, and fronted cam­paigns for Juicy Cou­ture x Ur­ban Out­fit­ters and John Frieda.

Ju­lia Michaels @imjmichaels | 359k fol­low­ers

Sure, our favourite pop­stars are ex­traor­di­nar­ily tal­ented, but they’re just as time-poor as the rest of us — and that’s where the sup­port crew comes in. Song­writ­ers such as Ju­lia are as im­por­tant to the charts as the big names, and she’s been cred­ited with writ­ing for all your faves: Demi Lo­vato, Se­lena Gomez, Fifth Har­mony, Nick Jonas and the Biebs, among oth­ers. She’s also been tour­ing with Shawn Men­des and work­ing on her own mu­sic, re­leas­ing EP Ner­vous Sys­tem (fea­tur­ing hit sin­gle ‘Is­sues’) in July.

Mag­gie Rogers @mag­gierogers | 95.3k fol­low­ers

Hands up if you’ve writ­ten a song in 15 min­utes, played it to Phar­rell, then been launched into su­per­star­dom? *sound of crick­ets chirp­ing* Well, that’s how Mag­gie made her name. Phar­rell ran a mas­ter­class at NYU, where Mag­gie was a stu­dent, heard the song she whipped up for it, ‘Alaska’, and was in­stantly ob­sessed. Less than two years later and she’s re­leased an EP and per­formed on the likes of The Tonight Show and The Late Late Show. Get used to her folksy elec­tron­ica sounds, be­cause you’re def­i­nitely go­ing to be hear­ing more from her.

Toki­mon­sta @toki­mon­sta | 100k fol­low­ers

Mak­ing her­self at home be­hind decks all over the world, DJ and pro­ducer Jennifer Lee, AKA Toki­mon­sta, is set­ting the elec­tron­ica world on fire. Her in­die-/ hip-hop-/r&b-in­fused remixes and records have opened her up to a col­lab­o­ra­tion with An­der­son Paak and given her the plat­form to start Young Art Records, a la­bel that sup­ports up-and-com­ing artists. She’s adorable and badass, a combo as ex­cel­lent as Mal­te­sers and pop­corn. Pop on one of her EPS next time you’re get­ting ready to go out, and you’ll be in party mode be­fore your lippy’s even mat­ti­fied.

FASH­ION IN­DUS­TRY FAVES Win­nie Har­low @win­niehar­low | 2.7M fol­low­ers

Win­nie was the first ever Cana­dian to com­pete on America’s Next Top Model, and wowed the judges with her beauty and pres­ence. Grow­ing up with the skin con­di­tion vi­tiligo, she strug­gled with low self-es­teem, but gave the haters the mid­dle fin­ger and look at her now. Her chill at­ti­tude is cel­e­brated in her 2017 Con­verse cam­paign, with the clas­sic brand just one of many in her port­fo­lio. She’s ap­peared on cov­ers from Glam­our to Elle, been en­dorsed by Queen Bey and fea­tured in the vi­su­als for Le­mon­ade, but she also videos her­self danc­ing to Nicki Mi­naj, just like the rest of us.

Am­ina Blue @am­ina.blue | 619k fol­low­ers

Her In­sta­gram bio reads “I am the in­flu­ence” and TBH, she is. This Ger­manPak­istani beauty rose to fame through mod­el­ling for Yeezy, ap­pear­ing in mu­sic videos for acts in­clud­ing Tyga and A$AP Ferg, and you may have spot­ted her in 032c magazine, in a shoot styled by New Zealan­ders Se­bas­tian Hunt and Dy­lan Richards, oth­er­wise known as Kim and Kanye’s stylists. The pas­sion­ate ve­gan is work­ing on a ve­gan shoe line and en­cour­ages her fol­low­ers to go cru­elty-free — and when her bod looks like that, who wouldn’t con­sider try­ing a plant-based ap­proach?

Hal­ima Aden @kingli­maa | 430k fol­low­ers

The new wave of mod­els is chang­ing the game both on and off the cat­walk, and Hal­ima is one of the cru­sade’s lead­ing ladies. As mod­els be­come as loved for their per­son­al­i­ties as their walks, Hal­ima made a state­ment that showed the world who she is when she wore a hi­jab at Yeezy’s 2017 NYFW show. Re­fus­ing to com­pro­mise her be­liefs, the Mus­lim

beauty is in­spir­ing women all over the world and breaking down an in­dus­try that’s un­der fire for its lack of di­ver­sity. Hal­ima’s first pho­to­shoot was with pho­to­graphic roy­alty Mario Sor­renti, so be­ing her­self is clearly work­ing out well.

Bar­bie Fer­reira @bar­bi­enox | 450k fol­low­ers

‘Plus size’ is NBD these days, thanks to women like Bar­bie, who’ve worked hard to point out it’s ac­tu­ally the norm. The US size 12 model (NZ size 16) is dom­i­nat­ing the in­dus­try with her un­apolo­getic at­ti­tude and self-love. Caus­ing a stir by ap­pear­ing in a 2016 Miss­guided cam­paign with­out a sin­gle pixel of Pho­to­shop­ping, ‘no re­touch­ing’ is a com­mon theme in her ca­reer, and con­sid­er­ing she’s signed to mega-agency Wil­helmina and is pick­ing up jobs left, right and cen­tre, it’s def­i­nitely an at­ti­tude we should all be get­ting be­hind.

GIRLS ON FILM Rowan Blan­chard @rowan­blan­chard | 5.1M fol­low­ers

Rowan Blan­chard is the Dis­ney star we all wish we could be. With hu­mil­ity and in­tel­li­gence well be­yond her 16 years, she has used her po­si­tion to pub­licly ad­vo­cate for queer rights, hu­man rights, gun vi­o­lence and fem­i­nism, in­clud­ing speak­ing at a UN Women con­fer­ence. She re­cently filmed A Wrin­kle In Time with our faves Reese and Mindy, though she didn’t make it to New Zealand with them. We hear she loves choco­late, so maybe we could en­tice her down here with some Whit­taker’s?

Yara Shahidi @yarashahidi | 1.4M fol­low­ers

Yara’s Rowan’s BFF, and with these girls among those cre­at­ing a path for the next gen­er­a­tion, we’re SO be­hind them. Yara is an ac­tress, model, out­spo­ken ac­tivist, fem­i­nist and ca­su­ally the sec­ond cousin of rap­per Nas. An­other young star with Bey’s stamp of ap­proval, she starred in an Ivy Park cam­paign and has plans to at­tend Har­vard, plus there’s a spin-off based on her Black-ish char­ac­ter in the works, so don’t ex­pect her star to dim any time soon.

Mil­lie Bobby Brown

@mil­liebob­by­brown | 8.7M fol­low­ers Stranger Things is the Net­flix se­ries no one can get enough of, and Mil­lie’s char­ac­ter Eleven is partly to thank for that. Who doesn’t love frozen waf­fles? After pop­ping up in mu­sic videos and TV ads, at age 12 she be­came the youngest face to front a Calvin Klein cam­paign, an achieve­ment she jug­gled with film­ing both Stranger Things and Godzilla. Sub­se­quently signed to IMG, it was all a bit much and she bravely let her fans know on In­sta­gram that she was tak­ing a break. We all need a du­vet day ev­ery now and then, which just makes her even more like­able than she al­ready is. Double taps and snaps.

SO­CIAL STARS Can­dace Reels @fe­malecol­lec­tive | 118k fol­low­ers

Can­dace cre­ated the @fe­malecol­lec­tive In­sta­gram as a place where women could cel­e­brate each other, and it’s grown into a huge on­line com­mu­nity and fail­safe source of great memes. Can­dace has said that her mum and the Spice Girls taught her ev­ery­thing she knows about fem­i­nism, so you bet she’s the per­fect woman to be run­ning this. Plus, her fem­i­nist slo­gan tees and totes are some of the best we’ve seen.

Claire Mar­shall @hey­claire | 707k fol­low­ers

Claire Mar­shall is the beauty ge­nius and vlog­ger with that ef­fort­less cool-girl vibe you’d kill to suc­cess­fully copy. When she’s not work­ing on set as a makeup artist, edit­ing videos, de­sign­ing tees for crowd­fund­ing cam­paigns to help build schools in Ghana or at­tend­ing Coachella as a guest of Ur­ban De­cay, she’s at home with her kitty, Bruce. You can also catch her Snapchat seg­ment, ‘Mail Time’; watch­ing her un­box­ing the dozens of beauty prod­uct-filled PR pack­ages she gets each week is al­most as much fun as re­ceiv­ing them your­self.
