It’s no secret that the models are pros when it comes to Instagram – from amassing thousands upon thousands of devout followers to always finding inventive and creative ways to photographically clue us in on their doings.  BUT – have you ever wondered who these insta-celebrities follow themselves?  We recently asked several of our favorite top models to dish on their favorite Instagram accounts, revealing a number of social media surprises.  For one, National Geographic (aka @natgeo) was mentioned more times than any other account, with Gigi Hadid, Constance JablonskiMagdalena Frackowiak and several others naming it as their follow of choice.  Still, that’s hardly the only account capturing the attention of these social media savvy beauties.  Scroll through the slideshow below to find out who Candice Swanepoel, Arlenis Sosa, Liya Kebede and others can’t get enough of.

Alessandra And Adriana Show Team Spirit in the Face of Brazil’s Crushing World Cup Loss

In case you missed it, Brazil’s quest for the World Cup ended abruptly on Tuesday after the country suffered a devastating defeat against Germany on its home turf.  As one might expect, Brazilian fans around the world were crushed by the 7-1 loss, and that includes the country’s league of futebol-loving supermodels.

As the rest of the world looked on from home in despair, Victoria’s Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Lily Aldridge gathered at New York’s Miss Lily’s bar in the East Village, where they cheered on their home team until the final minutes of game.  Dressed in their personalized yellow and green jerseys, the supermodels appeared to be in high spirits heading into the matchup, that is, before things took a turn for the worse.  In a photo posted to Instagram, Alessandra and Adriana could be seen holding hands to encourage their team, only to break down later.  Adriana was seen getting visibly upset during the nail-bitting matchup, while Alessandra pouted and gave a thumbs down sign.  Later, the former returned to Instagram, this time posting a photo of “Brasil” written in the sand along with the caption, “Eu sou brasileiro, com muito orgulho , com muito amor. Valeu seleção!!!”

Meanwhile, we know of at least two other models who were more than pleased with the outcome of Tuesday’s game.  Heidi Klum took to social media to cheer on her native Deutschland, posting a photo of herself with her back turned to the game in disbelief alongside the caption: “Can you believe this…I cant . 1…2…3…..4….5….6…..7…”  Similarly, Toni Garrn was spotted watching the game intently in the company of her boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio at the Goal Sports Bar in West Hollywood.  No doubt, the two German beauties has a far more enjoyable time watching the game than ‘Ale and Lims.’
