We’ve all been guilty of partaking
in the “selfie” phenomenon. Come on, admit it: how many times have you felt the sudden urge to snap a self-portrait and post it for the world to see? If you’re like most of us, then it’s a lot. No need to be ashamed, the selfie is here to stay.
Just today, it was announced that the word selfie was deemed
Oxford Dictionary’s “Word Of The Year.” No longer are incessant self photos considered narcissistic, instead they’ve become a staple within our society.
According to the dictionary, a selfie is defined as:
“A photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website”
We certainly have countless celebs and political figures that have been the driving force behind selfie domination. In honor of all of our favorite starlets who’ve mastered the art of taking the perfect selfie, we created a gallery commemorating 50 of the best celeb selfies of all time.
