Throughout the history, fashion photographers are known to plaster photos of fashion models in magazines and billboards. With the widespread of Smartphones, it is no stranger that models have played both roles of the person in front and behind the lens. As Oxford Dictionaries (http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/) would define it; the word “selfie” means A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website. The phenomenon has taken over even the catwalk stars to capture their blessed face in filtered image or natural light.

A quick search of the hashtag #selfie on Instagram would yield 105 million plus (and still growing) results of selfies which includes those from models and models-by-heart. Through my weekend effort, I have searched the pixelated world of Instagram to find the best selfies of our beloved model citizens. Let’s indulge ourselves for my top 20 picks of model selfies in no particular order.
