Instagram has revolutionized a lot of things, from giving us all a new outlet for documenting our lives to an easy tool for turning amateur photos into beautiful, stylized shots. But if Instagram has really shaken up anything, it’s the access to the lives of celebrities like no tabloid can offer. And these women—Miranda Kerr, Kerry Washington, and Jessica Alba, pictured, plus Gisele Bundchen and Nicole Richie—have perfected the art of giving us a glimpse into their fabulous (and occasionally ordinary) existences. Check out the nominees in the Social Media Awards’ Best Backstage Access category and vote for your favorite. Polls will be open until Sunday, September 15 at 11:59 p.m. ET, and we’ll announce the winners here on and in our December issue. Be sure to hashtag it out using #InStyleSMAs!
