THIS lot don’t half like themselves – and so do millions of their fans.
We told yesterday how Kim Kardashian is trailing younger half-sister Kylie Jenner in the number of Instagram likes the US reality TV pair’s swimwear shots get.
Kim’s pic in this itsy-bitsy beige bikini got a whopping 7,830,386 likes[/caption]
Kim, 40, scored 2.4million for her latest, while Kylie, 23, clocked up eight million.
It is plenty more than you or I could aspire to for a poolside selfie from sunny Spain once Covid permits.
But Kim and Kylie are far from the only stars in swimwear making giant splashes – and guys are at it, too, in trunks or gym kit.
Less is often more in the bikini wars, but a moving caption or birthday celebration also score big.

American Selena, now 28, captioned her pic: “Now, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through . . . I’m proud.”
SHE may not have quite the Insta clout of half-sister Kylie – poor Kim has only the 192million followers – but this outing in an itsy-bitsy beige bikini to mark turning 40 clicked with 7,830,386 fans.
However, Kim got only 2.4million likes for her photo in a tiny white bikini for her latest Instagram photo[/caption]
MODEL and reality TV beauty Kylie is the No2-ranking girl in our chart rundown, beaten only by Selena Gomez, for this red-hot bikini shot liked by no fewer than 12,317,497 admirers.
Then again, given she has 201million Instagram followers, this smash hit snap comes as little surprise. Big sister Kim can but dream . . .
DUA, the only Brit here, claimed she was a “shy” sort as she posed in a black bikini in the Caribbean.
