    Meet the 87-year-old star of Instagram that everyone loves: Baddie Winkle

    The Instagram star has 1.7 million followers on Instagram, including Gwen Stefani, Miley Cyrus and Drake.


    This 87-year-old grandmother has no problem showing the world she can still guzzle beer and slip into a bikini.

    Instagram's oldest star, Baddie Winkle, has captivated 1.7 million followers with her wild and raunchy outfits — ones that even a 20-year-old would arguably toss away.

    "It shocks me how much people love me, but the thing is I love my fans as much as they love me. They give me energy and motivation," she told the Daily News.

    For the past year, the over-the-hill rebel has been the cool grandma of Instagram users.


    the vmas are coming!!! i'll be there can't wait to team up with the ultimate babe @mileycyrus

    She plays beer pong with fraternities and champions marijuana with her revealing substance-themed cheerleader outfits and knee-high socks.

    With little regard for their outdated fashion status, she rocks tie-dyed ensembles topped with gold chains.

    And, she’s in tune with the times, donning shirts that read pop culture sayings like: "Don't even look at me. You basic.” and “You are my champagne, my Papi, my Drake.”



    Her captions are even sassier.

    “Sippin on some tea while waiting for your man,” she writes in one, where she wears 12-inch platform heels.

    One thing the Knoxville, Tenn. resident will never wear: pasties, she said.

    Everything else is up for grabs.


    “I don't think of getting older. I'm not an old person. I don't know what it feels like to be old or how an old person is supposed to feel ,” she said.

    The dissonance of a nearly 90-year-old woman in crochet bikinis throwing peace signs has gained the allegiance of star followers like Nicole Richie and Gwen Stefani.

    Add to that, her BFF status with Miley Cyrus — basically a younger version of Winkle — and she is perhaps the oldest in a small group of Instagram stars to make moves in Hollywood.

    She even joined Cyrus at the MTV Video Music Awards in August.

    Cyrus has called her a “bad a-- role model for all of us.”





    Yet, her success reaches far beyond her recognition from celebrities.

    Winkle has a built a controversial brand that rakes in cash with every click of the like button.

    Her flashy posts earn roughly 70,000 likes on average and she can make up to $5,000 per paid post.

    Next month, Baddie Winkle apparel will be sold at Kitson boutiques, with Winkle getting a 15% cut.

    It’s just one smart move in a string of business-savvy deals the former factory worker has made — and she’s only been at it for a year.

    For 28 years, Winkle’s job was to order gauges for machines, as well as tend to her family farm.

    The out-there octogenarian was born Helen Van Winkle in 1928.

    Her non-conformist alter-ego evolved as a coping mechanism to the daily reminders of her husband and son’s death.






    While laying out in the sun in April 2014, she sought comfort in a spontaneous make-over that involved her 19-year-old great granddaughter's tie-dye shirt and cut-off shorts.

    A picture snapped of her self reinvention was posted on Twitter and earned over 6,000 favorites.

    Baddie was quickly born.

    In roughly a year since her social media debut, she's scored modeling contracts, been the face of clothing lines like Dimepiece LA and is in talks for a reality show with her family.

    She'll even join the likes of Kim Kardashian, gracing Paper Magazine's "Break the Internet" issue due out next month.


    When not rubbing elbows with A-listers, the hip icon is a grandmother of five and great-grandmother of three.

    And, she has no plans to retire from her Instagram fame.

    “I want to be Baddie Winkle as long as I'm living on this earth. I'll go strong until, well I'm gone I suppose,” she said.
