This year, it was hard not to be obsessed with Instagram. Celebrities flocked to the social app to share everything from pregnancy announcements to wedding day photos. And though racy photos got our attention (ahem, Amber Rose), the wholesome snaps with babies, boyfriends and pets garnered the most likes. The biggest surprise though? Not a single Kim Kardashian selfie made the list. Below, check out the 10 most popular Instagram posts of the year.
1. Kendall Jenner
“Kanye, Imma let you finish but Kendall has the most liked Instagram pic of all time!” Poor Kanye. Kendall Jenner’s picture lying on the floor with heart-shaped hair is Instagram’s most liked picture ever, stealing the title from Kimye’s 2014 wedding photo that took Kanye four long days to edit.
2. Taylor Swift
Kanye’s flowers did make the Top 10 list though in a picture with Taylor Swift that garnered 2.6 million likes. Instagram loves a good makeup story.
3. Taylor Swift
Taylor continued her reign as Instagram Queen with the third most popular photo of the year. Her snap with then-boyfriend Calvin Harris was liked 2.5 million times. Because everyone loves piggy back rides from their boyfriend.
4. Kylie Jenner
While her photos driving while Instagramming (DWI) didn’t fare well, we loved Kylie’s picture holding her high school diploma. It gained 2.3 million likes, earning her the fourth spot on the list.
We wish there was a love button for this photo with Beyonce and 11 month-old Blue Ivy during her American Vogue shoot. One question, though: why didn’t this incredible pic end up in the magazine?
6. Taylor Swift
Who couldn’t like this adorable picture of T.Swift and her cat? Note to self: pet pictures win Instagram.
7. Selena Gomez
We loved Selena’s selfie (and sweatshirt) so much it got 2.3 million likes. She needs to come out with a selfie book.
8. Taylor Swift
When your cat is as cute as a button and named after Meredith Grey from Grey’s Anatomy, any picture with her is basically Instagram bait.
9. Taylor Swift
Like when you snuggle in bed with your cat and get 2.2 million Instagram likes…
10. Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner is so benevolent she thanked us for following her, and gifted us with this amazing selfie. We showed our gratitude with 2.2 million likes.
