Celebs are the masters of self-promotion, and nothing says “look at me!” more than a selfie.
But not just any selfie will do! Ellen DeGeneres set the bar at the 2014 Oscars, when she snapped a photo with close pals Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong’o, Kevin Spacey and Angelina Jolie.
Though the photo received an absurd amount of likes — more than 2 million and counting — she’s had some pretty stiff competition.
Kylie Jenner, for one, broke Anna Wintour’s famous “no photo” rule at the 2017 Met Gala in order to take a snap with sisters Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, A$AP Rocky, Paris Jackson, Frank Ocean, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Lily Aldridge and Brie Larson in the museum’s bathroom.
Instagram Queen Selena Gomez, meanwhile, racked up more than 8 million likes at Coachella in 2017 with the first photo of herself with with ex-boyfriend The Weeknd, whom she dated from January to October 2017.
Of course, it’s nearly impossible to mention the word “selfie” without mentioning the selfie O.G. Kim Kardashian, who released an entire 400-picture book full of them with Selfish in 2015.
The following year, the beauty mogul revealed the lessons she learned after taking so many selfies of herself.
“There’s nothing worse than a really bad selfie angle,” she told E! News in August 2016. “I would say chin down [is my best angle], and I like a side profile sometimes instead of a straight-on shot. I do a little head tilt to the side … You need good lighting. Obviously.”
Three years later, the reality star shockingly claimed that she was done taking photos of herself.
“You know, I don’t take selfies anymore, I don’t really like them that much,” Kim said during an interview with ITV’s This Morning in June 2018. “It’s not all about, like, sitting there taking selfies. I just would like to live in real time a little bit more. I don’t mind pictures, but I’m just not on my phone the way that I used to be.”
Although Kim claimed that she was done with selfies, she’s made a few exceptions since.
