From Taylor Swift to Shay Mitchell, Here Are 20 Stars' First Insta Posts

Today marks the six year anniversary of the first-ever picture being posted to Instagram. Have any idea what it could be? Or even who it could be from?

None other than Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom uploaded the iconic pic to the app, and it just so happened to be the cutest snap of his pup—D'AWWW!

In honor of this historic event, we're throwing it back to the first images our fave celebs, including Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, posted to their feeds. This was way before lighting, editing and selfies became a thing, so these shots are a far cry from the images you would expect them to post.


1. Taylor Swift

Taylor used her first post to show off her gorgeous grandmother. We definitely see a resemblance.


2. Justin Bieber

The struggle of constantly being stuck in traffic in L.A. is real. We feel your pain, Justin.

Oh, deer. Harry, you're cute, but this Instagram caption isn't. Good try though!

4. Fifth Harmony

The first ever group shot of the girls has us misty-eyed. Can you imagine if Simon never put them together?!

So happy Simon put us together as a group! <3

Their style has certainly evolved since this pic was taken. Those sunglasses are everything though.

Look at sweet little Lauren looking like a precious cinnamon roll.
