In a world full of Instagram wannabees, 89-year-old ‘Baddie Winkle’ slays them all and has quite rightly been crowned the world’s coolest ‘Insta-grandma’ for all the right reasons.

If you haven’t heard of Baddie Winkle yet, you’ve been missing out.

Some people say they are influencers, Baddie just crushes it regardless.

As she says in her profile…


Stealing ur man since 1928.

Say hello to a superwoman with 3.8 million adoring fans on Instagram.

This diva of diva’s shares hilarious daily ‘grams’ of herself, scantily clad in her funkadelic get-ups and literally having the time of her life.

Some of her favourite ironic T-shirts have included slogans such as “Bye Basic” and “Drake would never treat me like this!”

Often adorned by fit young men, she’s showing up all over the world and should be an inspiration to us all for her ‘couldn’t care less’ approach and cheeky innuendo that gives the term #noregrets a whole new meaning.

She’s become so famous that she now makes a living off her posts and gets to travel all over the place in the process.

Helen Ruth Elam Van Winkle (Her real name is cool enough right?) who lives in Tennessee is now an American internet sensation and only got into Instagram 5 years ago.

Born on July 18, 1928, ‘Baddie’ was born after Winkle reportedly tried on a tie-dye T-shirt and pair of cutoff shorts belonging to her great-granddaughter Kennedy, who then uploaded the photo to Instagram.

Five years on, she is so popular that her celeb fans including Rhianna, Miley Cyrus, Khloe Kardashian and Nicole Richie to name but a few, just can’t get enough of her.

Baddie is also a staunch campaigner for the legalisation and decriminalisation of medical Marijuana.

I’ve missed ya’ll ????

Baddie is not just a great fashion icon, but she is also an inspiration for women of all ages. She is an ultimate example of a woman who is not afraid to bare some skin despite her age.

She’s definitely living her life to the fullest, even if that means wearing one-piece swimwear.

Please don’t stop what you’re doing Baddie, because the internet loves you.
