Meet Baddie Winkle: The 91-Year-Old Instagram Style Icon

Meet Helen Ruth van Winkle, aka Baddie Winkle — the 91-year-old great-grandmother who's been "stealing ur man since 1928."

This badass, way-too-cool-for-her-age, style icon has become an Instagram sensation. Boasting an impressive 3.9 million followers, Baddie shot to fame five years ago when her great-granddaughter posted a picture of her in cut off shorts and tie-die t-shirt to Instagram. It quickly went viral and propelled Baddie into the limelight. The world immediately fell in love with her charisma, her infectious smile and her bright and bold sense of fashion.

So how did the name Baddie Winkle come into being? Baddie said: "I'm a bad bitch; always been a rebel. So we decided 'bad' — 'baddie.' And then my last name was van Winkle, so we put the Winkle on."

Check out the pictures below to see for yourself Baddie's infectious energy, her iconic style and just how badass this vivacious 91-year-old is.
