The Difference Between Celebrity Instagrams and Their Candid Photos Is Shocking | 22 Words

Nobody does Instagram better than celebrities. It's like the social media platform was made specifically for the glamorous photos they continually post, inciting jealousy in all of us mere mortals. Of course, Instagram isn't all perfectly curated selfies and yacht pics. Many celebs use the platform to speak out about issues that are nearest and dearest to them. But...there are also a lot of photos of celebs vacationing and living a life that most of us could only dream of.

Famous people post personal pictures that look like they're straight out of a magazine spread and we forget that they're just human beings enjoying themselves on whatever vacation they're on. So when you take away the perfect lighting, the elegant pose, and the filters, their stunning trips look almost...normal.

I said almost, people. They're still celebs, but some of their candid photos really do look different!

Let's take a look at celebrity Instagram pics vs the candid photos.

There are certain celebs who thrive on Instagram.

Like Bella Hadid. My mirror selfies never look this good. SMH.

Kylie Jenner is definitely a queen of Instagram.

I mean, the girl just knows how to pose. The cars aren't a bad backdrop either.

Instagram stardom runs in the Kardashian-Jenner family.

Kendall makes posing on a yacht look so casual and effortless. I guess that's why she's a model...

Jordyn Woods knows how to work it.

When I sit on a bed, I look like a troll. Jordyn Woods is gorgeous.

Chloe and Halle are also always looking gorgeous on Instagram.

They're literally sparkling! How is it possible for two girls to be so stunning?

Oliva Culpo makes chilling by the pool look like a Vogue cover shoot.

The lighting! The colors! The pose! In these Instagrams, we're not seeing the behind-the-scenes of the picture, or all the outtakes that didn't make the cut. But here are some celeb Instagrams vs the candids...

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and the fam.

There are so many famous people in this picture! This is what family vacay dreams are made of...

The candid:

Umm, yeah, they still look amazing. They don't have to be posing to look fabulous.

Justin Bieber and his motorcycle.

Justin Bieber's wife, Hailey Bieber, posted Justin and his motorcycle just hanging out...

The candid:

I wonder how many times he made her take this picture? I'm going to guess about 100 times...

Maluma knows how to stunt at the beach.

The Colombian singer looks hotter-than-hot while chilling in Miami.

The candid:

Though this candid may be from a different trip to Miami, Maluma still looks amazing. Even when he's not posing!

Kourtney Kardashian strikes a pose in Costa Rica.

The Kardashians have Instagram-posing in their blood. All of them are so good at it.

The candid:

Still looking flawless, but there's that "vacay with all the kids" look in her eye.

Britney Spears hanging out in paradise.

The pop singer's Instagram posts are truly works of art. The editing! The lack of background music! It's perfect.

The candid:

Britney got pretty pissed off when paparazzi posted candid photos that she claimed they altered. We think Britney looks amazing, both in candid photos and her posed ones.

Bella Thorne keeps it low-key on a yacht.

Bella Thorne looks laid-back and cool in Miami. There's not a trace of sweat or humidity in any of these pics!

The candid:

I want to hang out with Bella Thorne. She seems so down-to-earth and fun.

The Jonas' are too cute.

Are they the king and queen of Instagram? Judging by their perfect posts, it sure seems like it.

The candids:

Who looks this good just walking down the street? I certainly don't.

Eva Longoria enjoys a vacation with her baby in Spain.

This picture is just pure joy. They're so cute!

The candid:

And the verdict is in: they're still so cute! Though the baby does look like he's ready for a nap. Me too, kid. Me too.

Little Mix's Leigh-Anne Pinnock and her boyfriend are hot and heavy on Instagram.

They're seriously a gorgeous couple, it's ridiculous.

The candid:

Who looks that flawless mid-cartwheel? I never want to see what I look like doing a cartwheel in a bikini. Ever.

Cristiano Ronaldo enjoys a family vacation along the French Riviera, like any rich and famous celebrity would.

Oh, to be rich and famous! What a dream.

The candid:

Yep, everything still looks beautiful. Sigh.

Sofia Vergara looks excited to be vacationing with hubby Joe Manganiello in Italy.

I can't blame her! Who wouldn't love to live that life?

The candid:

They're still two of the most beautiful people on planet earth. It's really not fair.

Okay, I lied earlier. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are obviously the king and queen of Instagram.

They're equal parts funny and glamorous. Basically, they're the perfect couple and have the perfect family.

The candid:

Less posing, more looking at the ground but still utterly stunning. We stan the Legends! Share this with a friend who loves keeping up with celeb vacations! (You know you have that friend).
