“Selfie” Named Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year! Plus the 25 Best Celebrity Selfies

By Sunny Chanel |

There are a whole bunch of new vocabulary words that have seeped into the American language this year (lookin’ at you, twerk), but one that has become incredibly popular, not just as a word but as an action, is “selfie.” Selfie, for those of you living under a rock, is “a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.” This week, selfie has become the Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year for 2013.

One place where the selfie has become a mainstay is Hollywood. Some celebrities could be called selfie addicts, including Kim Kardashain, Snooki, and most Real Housewives. But one thing about the selfie that we really appreciate is the casual nature of the image. These self portraits are often stunningly beautiful, capturing not only the natural beauty of the celebrities, but also showing them in a whole new light. We’ve collected 25 of the most gorgeous and eye-catching celebrity selfies, from the prolific Kardashian sisters to supermodels.
