According to Instagram's official top ten posts of the year, women ruled social media in 2015.

The photo sharing app has just released data on the most popular posts based on the number of likes and comments, and Beyonce, Selena Gomez and Kendall Jenner topped the list.

However, it was Taylor Swift who proved to be Instagram queen with five out of the 10 most-liked posts coming from her account. 

Thanks to her 57million followers, her cat Meredith also received plenty of virtual hearts - enough to put her in three of Taylor's top photos. 

Last year's most favourited posts included Kim Kardashian and Kanye's West's first wedding snap, a Justin Bieber selfie and Harry Styles with his sister. 

So perhaps this was the year for all things female and feline. Take a look for yourself below.
