Kendall Jenner portrait becomes most-liked selfie ever posted on Instagram

Photo-sharing app Instagram has notched up its most liked selfie ever after US model Kendall Jenner, half-sister of Kim Kardashian, racked up 2.6m likes in just one month courtesy of a red carpet mug shot.

The tally sees Jenner take the crown for having the most liked selfie on the platform from her own sibling, who previously held the title for a wedding day pic alongside new hubby Kanye West which could only amass 2.4m likes over the course of a year.

To pull off the feat Jenner posed lying on the floor in a lace dress with her flowing hair carefully arranged into heart shapes. Following news of her triumph Jenner took to Twitter to tweet: “Take that KimYe”.

Despite winning this particular Instagram battle Kardashian still rules the roost when it comes to total followers, with an army of 37.5m keeping tabs on the celebrity's postings.
