This is a video, but I don’t think anyone is going to complain about it being on the list. Solange Knowles had an amazing wedding, but one of the highlights had to be her and her son Julez performing a choreographed dance to “No Flex Zone” by Rae Sremmurd.

5. Prince George’s Chubby CheeksThe Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Tour Australia And New Zealand - Day 1

Prince George would steal the spotlight in any photo, even if he wasn’t a royal. Normally, we would have been admiring Kate Middleton‘s gorgeous red coat, but Prince George and his sweet cardigan and chubby cheeks had our full attention.

7. Quvenzhané Wallis’ Armani Junior Ad

We love gorgeous fashion campaigns, but it’s not often that we coo at how cute they are. Quvenzhané Wallis’ Armani Junior ad wins the award for cutest ad campaign of the year. It would have won without the puppy, but the dog takes it up another 500 points.

8. Blue Ivy Wearing Beyoncé‘s Shoesblue-ivy-beyonce-heels

Blue Ivy is another cute toddler who could have a list all to herself. Choosing one photo was difficult, but little Blue Ivy wearing Beyoncé‘s feels made us all say a collective “awww!”

This throwback photo of a young Amanda Seyfried is amazing on its own, but it was even better because Amanda used it to give BF Justin Long a birthday shout-out. She looks like a little 1950s housewife with her party dress and red lipstick.

Kim was Anna Wintour, North was Andre Leon Talley,  Joyce Bonelli went as Grace Coddington and her son was Karl Lagerfeld (not part of the Vogue masthead, but still amazing) and it was perfection.
