11th place: National Geographic
The only account on this list that has nothing to do with the world of gloss, or big money, or fame. With the advent of digital technologies and social networks, the magazine with almost a century and a half has not changed the old traditions - the best documentary pictures about our planet are published here.

Her Instagram account serves as a showcase for how you can look great anywhere, anytime.
5th place: Kylie Jenner
Designer outfits, jewelry, photographs from the dressing room and in the company of famous people - it is unlikely that millions of subscribers to the young model's account expected something else.

Winner of the Ballon d'Or, Golden Boot, Player of the Year awards and a number of unique records in the football industry. Cristiano Ronaldo does not complain about the lack of attention, and therefore his Instagram account is equally filled with pictures from the football field and with his family.
