24 Celebrity Instagram Posts From The Beginning Of The Decade Vs. Their Posts Now
It’s always amusing when celebs share throwback pics of when they were younger – or back when they knew nothing about fashion. But on the occasion of the decade coming to a close, we thought we’d celebrate with a different kind of TBT. We uncovered the debut posts from some of your favorite celebs, to show them as the mere mortals they really are, and compared them to their 2019 content. Just a friendly reminder that all of us posted terrible things on Instagram at one point or another. Enjoy…
Maluma in 2010
The pretty boy, dirty boy wasn’t even on Instagram back in 2010. So we dug up this post of his via Twitter. He was the face of innocence, and his body was like a clean slate, little did he know about the fame and fortunes that awaited him.
Still shirtless, but with a lot more ink. Through the years the reggaetonero racked up tats and hits. Millions of streams and many records later, Maluma has positioned himself as a top exponent of his genre. His IG isn’t as polished as other celebrities’, but he still shares insights into his lifestyle, his appearances and tours.
Selena Gomez in 2013
Heavily filtered as was cool back in the day. Making great use of the famous Instagram frames. Ah, life —and instagram— was much easier back then.
Selena Gomez Now
Sel recently made a comeback with her two singles ‘Look At Her Now’ and ‘Lose You To Love Me’ and her Instagram has been on fire ever since. Nowadays she shares photos of the making of her works, special moments with her friends and family —and she stays away from the haters. As we all should.
J Balvin in 2014
The Colombian singer had just dropped his second album ‘La Familia’ and was only just getting a taste of what would be his worldwide stardom.
J Balvin Now
I think a lot about what J Balvin’s skincare routine is, and why he hasn’t let us in on his secrets. Nowadays the king of Urbano and Reggaeton shares photos of his lavish life —and skin— his looks are always fire, his hair is always colored in a bright hue and his concerts are always LIT. That pretty much sums up his content.
Bad Bunny in 2015
Behold Bad Bunny’s very first gram. It’s hard to imagine Benito without his signature bright manicure and wild outfits, but here it is. Proof that his style has definitely evolved into the psychedelic grandiose mess it is today.
Bad Bunny in 2019
A musical king, a style icon, a fashion AUTHORITY. Benito has truly grown up these last few years, and we can’t wait to see what the next chapter will look like. Nowadays he serves a fashion clinic every time an #OOTD of his goes up onto Instagram and teases all of us with snippets of upcoming hits in his IG stories too.
Camila Cabello circa 2012
Here’s Camila’s very first post. A blurry photo-collage of a concert. Who was on? Who knows? Maybe Fifth Harmony themselves. Guess we’ll never know, but apparently it was a great night.
Camila Cabello Now
The former Fifth Harmony member is a Pop Princess of her own accord. These days she only posts high quality, hi-res photos of herself. And the looks she serves, give us LIFE.
Demi Lovato’s first post
“You better be watching The X Factor tonight”. The grainy picture is giving us life, and not to mention the sexy cheetah makeup.
Demi has grown to be a true strong, confident woman. This year she shared this photo in which she promised to not airbrush her body any longer, “I’m just literally sooooo tired of being ashamed of my body, editing it (yes the other bikini pics were edited – and I hate that I did that but it’s the truth) so that others think I’m THEIR idea of what beautiful is, but it’s just not me. This is what I got. I want this new chapter in my life to be about being authentic to who I am rather than trying to meet someone else’s standards.” —and we’re definitely on board. Here’s to an unedited new decade.
Will Smith’s first post
Will Smith joined Instagram in December 2017 – a LOT later than pretty much every human being but when he did, it was fresh from the set of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’!
Will Smith in 2019
The epitome of ‘cool dad’ style. Will Smith remains the king of comedy, his instagram videos are often funny or heartwarming, no in between.
Beyonce’s first post
Queen Bey’s very first post dates back to 2012, when she wore this tee to show her support for Pres. Obama.
Queening then, and queening now. This icon of a woman has definitely evolved in her IG content, now she wows up with her lewks and lavish lifestyle. We’re loving her with these braids, as much as with her signature gold locks.
J.Lo in 2013
Ah man, those retro-esque filters got all of us. Here’s Jenny from the Block back in 2013 sharing a pic of herself and dad.
Glamorous, fabulous, athletic, bronzed. J.Lo won’t post a bad picture anymore uh-uh. She has a glam team to make sure that doesn’t happen —and tbh, we’re not complaining. She serves hair and makeup inspo for all of us to try —and in my case fail— to achieve.
Eva Mendes first posted in 2015
With this major throwback, the Cuban-American actress greeted instagram for the first time.
Eva Mendes Now
A whole businesswoman. A mom, an actor. This woman is proof that yu can have it all —and Ryan Gosling is just the cherry on top, amirite?
Lady Gaga circa 2012
Behold Lady Gaga’s first Instagram selfie, dating back to 2012. Grainy, dissheveled and natural. We love everything about it.
Lady Gaga now.
The GLAM. The makeup, the hair, the earrings. The lighting! Looks like a lot has changed for mother monster in the last decade.
Salma Hayek then
One of Hayek’s very first instagram posts. With the grainy texture, warm colors of the trendy Instagram filters we all loved and the neon lipstick that was all the rave back in 2015.
Polished, glammed up, good lighting, good backdrop. La Veracruzana is a whole Instagram goddess these days.
