Diving deep into the social media accounts of some of our Kiwi celebrities we thought it would be fun to look back at their very first post – and if it predicted their future to come.
Lorde’s love of a mysterious Insta post began on day one, when she posted this poolside pic with the caption: “Male models and everything.” Four years on, we still don’t know who he is…
Fashion blogger Jaime Ridge joined Instagram five years ago, pining for this luxurious Louis Vuitton travel. No word on whether it ever made it into her personal collection.
Black Stick and Richie McCaw’s wife Gemma Flynn posted some life inspo when she joined the Gram four years ago, encouraging people to “free yourself from negative people”.
Loveable Matoodles, aka Matilda Rice, became an Insta star after she won the first season of The Bachelor NZ. She may live with a certified paleo champ now but her very first post was of these distinctly un-paleo pancakes. Yum!
Starting as he meant to continue, Colin Mathura-Jeffree’s first post was a shout out for some free swag, posted just three years ago.
We have Dan Carter, whose first gram was a throwback to his roots, posting an old rugby jersey five years ago.
Queen Gilda only joined Instagram a little over a year ago, but took to it like a duck to water. Her first post gave us a glimpse into her luxurious life and her love of a good selfie.
David Farrier is notorious for his quirky Insta-game so we were devastated to trawl back through more than 3000 posts to discover this inaugural snap. A pool.
Luckily, he quickly lifted his game posting regular snaps of curious critters and cats in precarious situations.
