The Most-Liked LFW Instagrams Were Both Posted By Beckhams — PHOTOS
Two members of England's most fashionable family racked up nearly half of a million likes between just two Instagram photos from London Fashion Week. The stats are in, and Victoria and son Brooklyn Beckham posted the most liked LFW photos on Instagram.
Victoria's snap, an intimate-looking photo of the designer in a jumpsuit and sequined blazer, holding a cocktail and snuggled up to her famous husband, earned her more than 262,000 likes. Meanwhile, close at his mother's very chic heels, Brooklyn's picture nabbed over 231,000 likes.
The two photographs could not be more different. The elder Beckham is, as befitting her girl-band moniker, very posh. She and David are dressed in head-to-toe black, practically a uniform requirement for fashion industry insiders, and the photography is crisp and clear. Brooklyn's on the other hand is more artistically driven; it's a ghostly black and white photograph that is digitally altered so that the person in the picture — we can only assume it's Brooklyn himself, although we can't be sure — blends in completely with the background, and only the sweatshirt is visible.
Even the captions are different; Victoria's thanks friends and well-wishers for celebrating her Dover Street store's first anniversary, while Brooklyn's photo is captioned simply with two hashtags.
When you look at both Beckham's numbers, though, it becomes immediately clear that statistically speaking, Brooklyn's likes are more impressive. He has "only" 4.4 million followers to his mother's 7 million fans, but his LFW photo only has about 31,000 less followers than her.
When both of the Beckhams' photos are compared to the most-liked NYFW photo, a picture of Selena Gomez outside of the Polo Ralph Lauren show, one can't help but notice that although this is fashion week, fans seem to respond to photos outside of the show.
Not that this is a popularity contest (because if it was, VB and Brooklyn just pwned everyone), but here are some more super-popular pics from LFW from some of Instagram's favorite celebs and style icons from both sides of the pond.
1. Tanya Burr Burberry Dress, at Burberry
British blogger and vlogger Tanya Burr had the third most liked LFW photo on Instagram, and it definitely has a lot to do with that gorgeous Burberry dress.
2.) Bella Hadid's Backseat Shot
Hadid didn't post from LFW, but her younger sister did; her pic with model Stella Maxwell earned almost 82,000 likes. That's not Beckham numbers, but it's pretty impressive.
3. Ciara's Profile picture pre-Topshop
She wasn't even at a show (see what I meant before when I said non-show photos are the most successful?) but when Ciara offered fans a peek at her hair and makeup look for the TopShop show, 121,000-plus people approved.
4. Suki Waterhouse at Topshop
TopShop shared Waterhouse's granny-chic outfit pre-show.
5. Rapper Z. Tao's 'grammed Invite
Ok, this is pretty impressive. Chinese rapper Z.TAO actually beat Brooklyn Beckham in likes, but because he didn't tag his picture #LFW, Instagram didn't include him in the stats.
