There used to be a time in the automotive enthusiast landscape when any girl could remove a few articles of clothing, pose next to some exotic sheetmetal and call herself a model. Fortunately, the path to becoming a true model is no piece of cake and the commitment and work ethic required often weeds out the garden variety “models” that are just looking for a little extra attention. While none of us here at S5Z are models ourselves (or are we?), we do know it takes more than an attractive face and butt to walk the walk and talk the talk that a full on modeling career constitutes.
A natural part of being a model is building a fanbase and while Facebook may still be the top dog in social media, Instagram is rapidly emerging as a very potent tool for content distribution and organic self-promotion. Any model would be unwise to ignore Instagram’s community-building power and we’ve gone and done you the huge favor of picking out the top 15 girls that are doing it right and keeping it classy. In the mix we have 15 of the most gorgeous bikers, up-and-comers, cellists, heavy metal aficionados, well-established style icons, and even a Pokemon trainer here and there.
