Fact: Pinterest users are reaching new heights. With over 70 millions users worldwide and $3.8 billion valuation, more and more individuals are getting their pin on with the leading visual discovery tool. So it is a surprise to no one that celebrities are joining in on the action and using Pinterest to market themselves, their brand as well as their businesses. Check out a few of our favorite celebrity Pinterest accounts!
Former Who’s the Boss actress, Alyssa Milano is one busy woman. With a career spanning over 30 years, it is safe to say that Milano has survived the curse of the 80’s child star. She is still an actress (Milano is currently on the ABC drama, Mistresses), a doting mom (Milo, her son with acting agent husband, David Bugliari turned 2 last August) and she also produces and writes. But many may not know that Milano is a big fan of Major League Baseball, particularly the Los Angeles Dodgers, and started a women’s fashion line for baseball fan apparel called “Touch”, which can be purchased through her personal blog and the MLB official site. Needless to say with the popularity of Pinterest, Milano uses her account to help market her clothes and pin cool ideas on topics ranging from sports to fashion and food.
Boards we love: Milano’s board, “Football is Life“, is where she pins for female sports fans and proudly proclaims that sports isn’t just for men. Her board, “For Good“, documents Milano’s humanitarian efforts and incorporates her love for sports and charities. Check out Alyssa Milano’s Pinterest account.
Everyone’s favorite good girl from The Hills has proven to be the most successful cast member from the hit reality TV show. With an estimated net worth of $12 million, Lauren Conrad’s fashion and style empire comprises of a clothing line, style books and novels. She pins about all things girly and has boards every self proclaimed fashionista would love. Everything from fashion tips, travel, food to health and fitness, hairstyle tips and books.
Boards we love: Conrad’s board, “Grow“, contains pins about some of the things that contributed to her growth as a person and continue to inspire her personally. We also love her “Make” board that has a lot of great DIY ideas on decorating and crafts. Check out LC’s Pinterest account.
Inspired by her role as a mother of two, actress Jessica Alba started “The Honest Company” with her business partner, Chris Gavigan. The company focuses on creating toxin-free everyday products, including soaps, lotions, cleaning supplies, diapers and shampoo that are safe to use. Her Pinterest boards are influenced by her business and her role as a mother, with cute ideas for little ones, her personal style and home decorating ideas.
Boards we love: Her “Products I Love” board gives us insights on a few other non-toxic products and her “Decor for Little Ones” board has a ton of cute decorating ideas for children – undoubtedly inspired by her two daughters, Honor Marie and Haven Garner. Check out Jessica Alba’s Pinterest account.
From one young mother to another, reformed party girl, Nicole Richie has established a legitimate name for herself in the fashion industry, and she’s held to high regard for her positive turn in life after battling an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Richie’s most notable fashion label, “House of Harlow 1960”, spawned a jewelry, handbag and clothing line. She also created a maternity line for A Pea in the Pod called “Nicole” and has expanded her fashion business to a new women’s line called “Winter Kate”.
Boards we love: Of course there’s the “House of Harlow 1960” board, which is a collection of all her designs, and the “Vintage Fashion” board, which features old fashion pictorials, but undoubtedly our favorite (and the most random–in the best way) is her “Chicken Coop” board which features really cool coops. Check out Nicole’s Pinterest account.
The world may know Anderson Cooper for his serious anchorman persona on CNN and his cutting edge interviews on Anderson Cooper 360°, but following his official coming out in 2012 and the success of his daytime talk show Anderson Live, Cooper is now a household name. He has transitioned from journalist to a very well known celebrity in his own right. With the syndication of Anderson Live, Cooper took to Pinterest to expand his reach to a new audience. He pins about everything from his favorite books, recipes from his celebrity chef guests, fan art and fashion tips for men.
Boards we love: “Photo Booth Fun” is a board consisting of fun photo booth pictures of him with his guests. The “Anderson Live Next Great Chocolate Chip Cookie Challenge” board chronicles Cooper’s search for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. In our opinion, the best board by far is one called “Frugal Friday“, where he pins money saving tips. Check out Anderson Cooper’s Pinterest account.
Everything Ryan Seacrest is involved in becomes a hit, and his Pinterest account is no different. Seacrest’s boards reflect him– everything from men’s fashion and hairstyle, to his hosting and correspondence projects with the E! Network and his own production company Ryan Seacrest Productions.
Boards we love: Seacrest has a lot of random boards but the best one is definitely his “Not Your Mother’s Grilled Cheese” board, which (of course) features all kinds of grilled cheese sandwich recipes. Check out Ryan’s Pinterest account.
This came as a surprise to us, too, when we researched celebrity Pinterest accounts, but it seems that actress Diane Keaton is also a photographer and has her own line of home goods called “K by Keaton”. Her Pinterest account doubles as an architectural creativity board with pictures of home decor, sceneries, houses and interior design.
Media giant, Oprah Winfrey is no stranger to personal branding. After a 25 season long run with The Oprah Winfrey Show, Winfrey continues to inspire her audience with her Pinterest account, which seems to be an extension of her nationally syndicated show. A lot of her favorite segments from her show are translated onto her Pinterest boards and include links to her current her projects like “Oprah’s Next Chapter” as well as updates from her OWN network.
Boards we love: “Oprah’s Book Club 2.0” is very reminiscent of the one she did on her show and includes links to purchase them from her domain. Just like on her talk show, Winfrey can’t help but also include her best friend, Gayle King into the mix with a board titled “What Gayle’s Loving” This board is a collection of King’s favorite repins, style tips and updates on her correspondence with CBS This Morning. Check out Oprah’s Pinterest account.
Ellen DeGeneres’s Pinterest account is exactly like her: sunny, nice, friendly and incredibly engaging. DeGeneres (or her team rather) has done a great job incorporating elements from her talk show that her audiences love. Almost all the segments from the talk show have their own boards on her Pinterest account, which is an incredibly smart move as she gets high repins from her memes and gags from the show.
Boards we love: Everything from “Ellen’s Good News“, “Clumbsy Thumbsy“, “What’s Wrong With These Signs?! Signs” to her boards on “Cutest Kids“, “Ink About It” and her infamous “Bad Paid-For Photos” they are all as quirky and zany as the talk show host herself. Check out Ellen’s Pinterest account.
Let’s face it – Pinterest and Martha Stewart go together like peanut butter and jelly. The life style queen has created a fortune inspiring women (and men!) all over the world to get crafty and creative. With the success of her Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia company, Stewart is reportedly worth an estimated $970 million, so we are not surprised that Stewart has taken to creating a Pinterest account reaching over 500,000 followers.
Boards we love: Is it fair to say we love them all?? All of Stewart’s boards work like her self help books, with each board designated to a particular craft. She also has holiday inspired boards for almost every celebration and includes decorating and recipe ideas. Check out Martha’s Pinterest account.
