We have reached an era where social media has become one of the most prevalent platforms in the world. Individuals have gained the luxury to appoint themselves as models, musicians, bloggers, and even fashion designers simply based off their high number of Instagram followers.
Meet Shannon and Shannade Clermont, better known as ‘The Clermont Twins’. These ladies started from a different platform (reality television) but made sure to capitalize on their buzz. The electrifying siblings were introduced to the world on season 14 of Oxygen's Bad Girls Club, where audiences immediately took a liking to them for their “bad girl” attitude and edgy sense of style. Due to a physical incident that occurred during filming, the twins were asked by producers to pack their bags and leave the show. Fans were outraged when they found out that the twins were banned from the popular series.
Since their TV debut, the 23-year-old sisters have gained tons of opportunities, from not only their outlandish antics on BGC, but also their eyebrow-raising Instagram posts. They have gained a substantial amount of social media followers (including an Instagram follow from Kim Kardashian West herself), a clothing line, channeled their inner badass in Future's music video for his hit "Real Sisters," shot with controversial photographer Terry Richardson and even participated in Kanye West’s YEEZY season 6 Campaign. Yes, you heard that correctly. YEEZY.
I think it's officially safe to say that these twins are only going up from here.
