Remember Jen Selter, the Instagram star who turned taking butt selfies into a viable career option?

Well, the 20-year-old fitness fanatic has switched from amateur social media snaps to a full-on glamorous photoshoot for Vanity Fair magazine.

The two-page profile, aptly titled 'Rear Admirable', features Selter clad in a full-body, sheer Louis Vuitton catsuit as well as a backside-baring bodysuit and corset - a far cry from her usual neon spandex.

See the whole shoot here.

According to Vanity Fair, Selter likes to see herself as aspirational: "When fans recognize her #seltering - posing for her iPhone with a leg raised and buttocks in full focus - on park benches and subway stairways, they tell her she's inspired them to go to the gym that day. And for that, it's all worth it.

"Along with the knowledge that she has sent one more young woman to the treadmill, she's also raking in sponsorships, free gear, and, most importantly, followers by the thousands."

Selter boasts a whopping 2.6 million Instagram followers and proving just how successful one can become from social media is said to be in talks to create her own sportswear fashion line.

She even taught Barbara Walters how to take her favourite kind of selfie on The View and showed Good Morning America the right way to squat.

Surely a double magazine cover featuring Selter alongside fellow butt-selfie aficianado, Kim Kardashian, can't be far away?
