This Selfie Is Currently The Most Liked Photo On Instagram

Kendall Jenner did the impossible in 2015: she officially dethroned her older sister, Kim Kardashian, of her title for the most-liked picture on Instagram. And the worst blow? It was a selfie.

Everyone knows about the older Kardashian sister's love and obsession with selfies, if the release of her book Selfish was any indication. (Apparently, the 352-page book contains a lot of her selfies.)

In 2014, Kim and Kanye's wedding photo had 2.4 million likes. But the then-19-year-old model's selfie? It gained 2.5 million likes... in just five weeks.

You may ask yourself, what was so special about a selfie? Aside from the fact that it was Kendall Jenner's selfie, Kim's little sister, who snatched the title away with her simple, yet creative selfie.

In the photo, Jenner is lying on the ground in a beautiful white dress, her hair spread out and shaped into hearts. Can you say adorable?

Though she held the title, that was back in 2015, and since then, she's been dethroned by a very conspicuous and unlikely account.
