10 Local Celebs and Their Very First IG Snaps They used to think Instagram borders and default filters were cool, too.

Long before VSCO was proclaimed king of photo-editing apps, Instagram’s default borders and filters were not only acceptable but were actually pretty cool. Truth be told, even our local celebrities seemed to think so. If you still don't believe us, how about we take a digital stroll down memory lane? Below, check out their very first IG uploads:

Kathryn Bernardo

First IG post: 194 weeks ago

The Teen Queen’s first ever IG snap was with child star Bugoy Carino. Evidently, other than her appreciation for cute little kiddos, she also had a thing for Nashville filter and its corresponding border.

Kim Chiu

First IG post: 187 weeks ago

Remember when this chinita princess introduced her stallion friend, Lagunara, to her followers? He must be really special to Kim given that it was her very first Instagram upload.

Anne Curtis

Being a foodie that she is, Anne’s first snap was her “brekky in bed” – bordered and edited using the high contrast Hefe filter.

Erich Gonzales

First IG post: 151 weeks ago

Her Instagram feed may now be flooded with cheezy moments shared with her boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga, but her first snap ever was a selfie with her one-time leading man, Mario Maurer.

Georgina Wilson

As if we need more proof of their friendship, we discovered that Georgina's first post on Instagram was with her “bestie” Solenn Heussaff. Aww!

Julia Barretto
