The Instagram Set To Be Your New Guilty Pleasure

The Instagram Set To Be Your New Guilty Pleasure

Sometimes celebrity instagram accounts can seem too fake and unrealistically glamorous ... but what if your role model was actually made of plastic?

The stunning Instagram account Tiff_thebarbie takes us into the world of the glamorous Tiff and her life as a 'real mom' with Ken and their growing family; perfectly sending up the selfie generation. So wrong, and yet so right. But what makes it so darn fun to look at?

1. Classic celebrity product placement

In this cynical world where all the biggest celebrities and bloggers constantly endorse brands whether they admit it is sponsored or not; this account's celebration of all the things we love to hate in 'real' celebrity instagram accounts, is one of the best things about it ... look out for Ken and his not so subtle Gillette plug!

2. The attention to detail

This isn't just dolls on a shelf; this is a whole shiny plastic world, with different characters in real environments... giving each other ponies. What's not to love?!

3. The instagram banter

Either the best thing, or the creepiest thing about tiff_thebarbie's Instagram account; is that she is friends with lots of other barbies who lead equally glamorous lives, and comment on each other's pages. But it is ok to judge the creators who clearly have too much time on their hands, while simultaneously flicking through (and loving) all their feeds, right?

‚Äč4. The recognisable 'real life' moments

She may have an impossibly good figure and a glamorous lifestyle, but Tiff has the same life-moments as everyone else. Whether it's maternity scans, doing yoga, hugging a pregnancy pillow, or getting sick on the bathroom floor; it's nice to know that Tiff is really just one of us.

5. The styling

Finally, one of the best things is that the Instagram feed would work almost as well if it was a fashion blogger, rather than the idol of every little girl. Tiff is one stylish mom!

Who do you follow on Instagram, and who are your celebrity idols? We'd love to hear.
