Who are the sexiest social media stars? We take a peek

Instagram is a funny beast. When Grace Coddington's account is taken down for posting a topless illustration on her feed, you'd think the social media platform would be less attuned to Bieber's belfie and other saucy celeb pics... but apparently, not so. Even though #freethenipple is still alive and trending, some savvy celebs have found a way to avoid Instagram's most chaste tendencies, calling on some artfully placed sheets/hands/bikini bottoms to work their censorship magic.   

From hot celeb sisters like Bella and Gigi Hadid/Kendall and Kim to provocateurs Miley Cyrus and RiRi, plus pin-ups Emily Ratajkowski and Candice Swanepoel - we've picked 40 of the downright raunchiest, NSFW Instagram uploads. We sure hope you like belfies...
