Here’s some shocking news: Insta-life is not the same thing as real life. (I know, your world just came crashing down at this news but try to compose yourself.) What a world it would be if the perfect selfie light just followed us everywhere, our every meal was a brunch spread of the Gods and that casual, looking off in the distance stare was natural. But the reality is that we spend 32 minutes smashed next to our bedroom window to capture that natural glow and our meals are usually either 1. ugly and boring or 2. cold by the time we actually enjoy them.
That is why we always love and applaud those Instagram photos that strip away all the filters (literal and figurative) and show off our Style Gurus just being themselves—fun, goofy, silly and #RAD. And if that isn’t double-tap worthy, I don’t know what is.
Check out these 12 Style Gurus who are keeping it real! Be inspired to snap a genuine photo of yourself and admire the realness that makes you, well, you!
