Instagram’s Most Influential Luxury Influencers

Since its inception in 2010, Instagram has grown into one of the most popular social media platforms of the modern age. 

A large part of this popularity is through the image curation that Instagram allows. Through carefully curated posts, Stories, and Reels, Instagram users can craft a picture perfect, aesthetically pleasing page that draws in followers day by day; a clan of clamouring fans all sighing, “God, I wish my life looked like that.” 

One class of influencers that have been born out of Instagram, are luxury influencers. Luxury influencers exude class, confidence, and wealth. They zoom about in their expensive cars, spend weekends on yachts in Monaco, and only wear designer clothing. 

Yet, not all luxury influencers are the same. Some are luxury lifestyle influencers; they provide the image of the perfect life. Holidays in perfect places, sleeping in perfect homes, and eating perfect food. 

Others, such as luxury brand influencers, focus on showing off expensive products. A casual Prada bag slung over the shoulder on the way to the grocery store, for example. These kinds of influencers are particularly engaged in luxury influencer marketing. A specific form of social media marketing wherein brands partner with luxury influencers to endorse their product. 

Luxury influencers have particularly taken root in Instagram due to its ability to provide the perfect combination of behind the scenes lifestyle content, and aesthetic posts. Through the platform, an influencer can provide more casual content on their Stories, such as little tidbits on their day, whilst ensuring that their page is the image of excellence. 

Here’s a look at the current top 20 luxury influencers on Instagram.
