The InStyle Social Media Awards launched recently and of all the categories, this is my favorite and the most difficult to choose! Which of these ladies will get the honor? Visit and vote here! http://bit.ly/1icOMG4
  1. Amy Schumer
    6b5eebb3 7ab3 4ea9 b0bf c0d6f1cd4439
    The star’s social posts are anything but a trainwreck: Hilarious one-liners, selfies with Lebron, and retweets of fans who were super-stoked to see her movies all make up her feed, but really, what we love is how she reminds us to laugh off the haters, like when she gleefully reposts articles criticizing that she dared eat a pastry in public to her 1.1+ million Instagram followers and 1.6 million+ Twitter-ers.
  2. Caitlyn Jenner

    When Jenner joined Twitter in June, the former track champ broke another record when she reached one million followers in just over four hours, leaving President Obama’s previous record in the dust. She’s since amassed more than 2.8 million followers (plus another 3.5 million on Instagram), where her feeds are filled with reminders of the struggles transgender individuals face—and reminders that their lives can be filled with just as much sunshine and smiles as everyone else’s.
  3. Mindy Kaling (@mindy)
    F520637f 257a 4f8b aa77 108cebe657ba
    Shoes, skirts, and (fake) pregnancy progress shots, Kaling’s 4.35 million Twitter and 1.7 million Instagram followers get a firsthand view of The Mindy Project star’s growing career. This is the kind of girl who isn’t too cool to snap a shot of herself on a security monitor—or steal a selfie with new costar Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And anytime she pops a tweet about the weirdness in the world around her (or the disastrous date at the table next to her), we’re giving it a like.
  4. Lady Gaga
    51af0730 d41c 4ced 9c6e e4f8e321bc70
    Whether she’s rocking larger-than-life style on stage, sweating at the gym as she preps for her upcoming role in American Horror Story, or rolling out of bed like the rest of us, the pop superstar’s social feeds remind her 49.5 million Twitter followers and 9.7 million ‘grammers that even the littlest of monsters can feel proud that they were born this way.
  5. Laverne Cox
    E2906ae5 b763 47a9 acfc e38ec0b22500
    The Orange Is The New Black star takes to Instagram to show off her red carpet style, sneak some onset selfies and even snap a shot next to her own Madame Tussauds wax statue. On Twitter, her 470,000+ followers can keep up with the latest news as she spreads the word about the fight for civil rights and transgender equality, and reminds struggling youth that it does, in fact, get better.
