because no one else knows a girl better than her sister.

Growing up with a sister can be rough at times, we know, but it’s also super amazing to know that someone’s got your back every, single time (plus we won’t deny that two closets are significantly better than one). And that’s why we were so inspired by the story in our October issue in which Lana Del Rey interviewed and snapped her photographer sister Chuck Grant for a totally up-close and personal angle. There are actually plenty of sister acts in the worlds of fashion, music, and blogging, and some might even be a bit of a shocker. While we’re all familiar with the iconic two-somes that are the sisters Olsen, Jenner, and Fanning, there are plenty of other pairs that are rocking the fashion and music worlds both together and on their own. Check out the ten coolest sister duos of Instagram in the gallery.
Suki Waterhouse (@sukiwaterhouse)
Burberry beauty Suki Waterhouse may be sitting pretty on the pages of Vogue for now, but she’s got an up-and-coming acting career up her sleeve, plus a relationship with Bradley Cooper that’s got her in a pretty bright spotlight. Also, she's insanely hilarious.
Immy Waterhouse (@immywaterhouse)
The lesser known Imogen (Immy) Waterhouse is already making her way as a Coast and Urban Outfitters alum, and most recently, the star of G21 Talent label’s 2013 campaign, but her Instagram focuses mostly on goofy little-sis shenanigans.
Sama and Haya Abu Khadra (@samahaya)
Twin street style superstars Sama and Haya Abu Khadra started out by helping their mom buy for her super chic boutique in Saudi Arabia, and now they’re totally ruling fashion week front rows between classes at USC.
First Aid Kit (@firstaidkit)
Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg are known for their sweet boho style and for the melancholic sound of their indie folk band First Aid Kit. Their Instagram also holds a ton of cute sister-selfies and fun touring pics that make us wish we had a musically inclined sis so we could hit the road together in gold metallic dresses just sing folk songs all day.
Lily Aldridge (@lilyaldridge)
Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sports Illustrated favorite Lily Aldridge is easily one of the most easily recognizable supermodels in America. So it’s not surprising that her Instagram is mostly full of model pics, but look out for the occasional appearance of husband Caleb Followill or a Shake Shack burger.
Ruby Aldridge (@rubyaldridge)
Little sis Ruby is taking the a more high fashion route, having starred in campaigns for ck One, Emporio Armani, and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Her Instagram, though, is pretty much dedicated to all of the normal parts of her life, but don’t worry ‘cause that means some rad street style.
Gigi Hadid (@gigihadid)
Model of the moment Gigi Hadid is making waves by strutting in numerous shows, smizing from the pages of Tom Ford and Guess ads, and hanging out with Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin on the reg. Her incredible selfie game is just the cherry on top.
Bella, like her older sister, is signed to IMG Models and is just starting to make a name for herself. With similar a similar look, street style, and the same group of high-status friends, we don’t see why this baby sis wouldn’t make it just as big.
Danielle Haim (@dyelllla)
Last but certainly not least, HAIM is definitely one to follow. These NYLON cover girls know how to take a good pic, as you can see at @haimtheband, but don’t overlook Danielle Haim’s own rad feed. The behind-the-scenes pics from the middle sis herself are pure gold, and she's got a cool rocker girl style all her own.
Alana Haim (@babyhaim)
Youngest sis, or “Baby Haim,” Alana is also a pro Instagrammer and the queen of goofy selfies (yes, often in Polaroid form).
