Selfies were errywhere this year. Oxford Dictionaries named selfie the word of 2013, which, based on celebrity Instagram accounts, makes total sense. Celebs love taking selfies and we, as bloggers and breathing humans, love looking at said selfies. We've come to rely on them to tell us what our faves are wearing, where they are, and who they're hanging with. It isn't until you look through every Instagram of Rihanna's from the past year that you truly appreciate just how much the badgal loves sharing her face/her new hair color/her products with the rest of the world. But Ri's not the only one doing it. We've rounded up our favorite selfies from the past year so you can peep 'em and refer back when taking GPOYs of your own. Enjoy!
NICKI MINAJ: MOST SELFIES NOT FOCUSED ON HER FACE
Nicki Minaj shares her selfies with two special guests.
For most people, selfies are all about the face. Obviously, Nicki Minaj is not like most people. Her selfies tend to draw attention to the two assets that sit below eye level and could easily stay out of frame. Nicki got bolder about baring as the year went on. While she began 2013 with some heavy cleavage, by the end she was straight-up giving us full-frontal pasties. Her Halloween costume, in case you couldn't tell, was a police officer. It's been a while since we've gotten any Instagrams from her Minajesty, so we're hoping she's planning to make up for lost time in 2014.

Well, well, well, y'all, looks like someone is craving pepperoni and/or pizza after two days on the vegan train. Beyoncé, who has joined Jay Z on a 22-day vegan challenge, wore a head-to-toe pizza outfit to a vegan restaurant in L.A. (TBH, aren't they all, though?) Pizza on pizza, people (#HERO #BOWDOWN #PEPPERONI4EVER). She is not kidding around. She must know of our love for food-themed clothing and decided to shoot us a "wassup, I feel you" without uttering a single word.
Bey wore pepperoni-pizza print leggings (you can get a similar pair here), which would probably be hard for anyone but Beyoncé to pull off. Taking a cue from her sis Solange, who is #QUEEN of wearing prints on prints, Bey wore a pepperoni-pizza patterned crop top, too. While there are plenty of options out there for a matching closeup-pizza sweatshirt, Bey opted for a print with entire pies.
Leave it to Beyonce to give the world an exclusive sneak peek of her hubby’s highly anticipated and buzzed about holiday collection with luxury retailer Barneys. While the power couple attended a launch event at the flagship store in New York City to celebrate Jay Z’s latest collaboration, Beyonce took to Instagram to rep her man in all-Shawn-Carter-everything. Now ladies, if you caught yourself singing, "If I were a boyyyyyy, I'd shop Barney's Holiday Collection, too", don't fret. Beyonce is out to prove that Jay's got something for the ladies, too.
Let's start from the top. Beyonce is rockin’ the heck out of that snapback isn't she?! Now, this is no ordinary fitted, Barneys' Mixed Exotics Brooklyn Cap is a python brimmed leather Just Don sports cap with a $875 price tag. Then, there’s her sporty puffer jacket. This limited edition leather-sleeved varsity jacket is crafted with black channel-quilted nylon and costs a whopping $2,295. But money ain't a thang when you've got pockets like the Carters, right?

As if we weren't excited enough about Beyonce's first-ever calendar, this morning B released a behind-the-scenes video of the calendar shoot. We love nothing more than a behind-the-scenes video but add Beyonce? This is all of our fave things wrapped up in one perfect package.
As a member of the Ever-Changing Hair Club™ (other members include Rihanna and Rita Ora), Bey's hair changes with each outfit/month of the calendar. The first 'do we see is platinum, which matches her entirely white outfit. Maybe this shot is for August as a reminder to wear all your white—even together, like B!—before Labor Day.
