Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Lauren Conrad & More: How Your Favorite Celebs Celebrated Christmas

While the rest of us spent Christmas shoving cookies in our faces to avoid awkward conversations and pretending to just love that late-'90s clearance rack sweater, celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Lauren Conrad, and Beyonce were taking unnaturally beautiful photos in front of their ornate Christmas trees and dressing their adorable children in even more adorable outfits.

Thanks to Instagram, we can now be reminded that celebrities are always better than us, especially on Christmas. Before you start demolishing that gingerbread house for a mid-morning snack, check out how some of our favorite celebrities spent Christmas.

Taylor Swift

Swift and her brother wore matching plaid onesies on Christmas Eve, and of course her hair still looks amazing under a giant furry hat.

Mariah Carey

Last week Carey posed in front of her Christmas tree while wearing a bikini, but for Christmas day she stuck to attire much more appropriate for a family holiday — a low cut red gown that showed off her black lace bra. But who cares? The singer of “All I Want for Christmas is You” has free reign.

Justin Bieber

The Biebs took a break on Christmas from being the newly-appointed world’s biggest jackass to build a snowman.

Queen Bey posted this appreciative letter to fans on Christmas, before sharing the classiest Christmas card of all time.

Told you.

Harry Styles

The One Direction heartthrob shared this photo with the caption ”It took all of 2 minutes for Archie to fly his helicopter onto the roof. Merry Christmas. x” He may not even be in the picture, but it’s still probably a bunch of 13-year-olds’ new computer background.

Jessica Biel

The actress lounged around in some plaid Christmas pajamas, and we can only dream that her husband Justin Timberlake was wearing a matching pair.

Giuliana Rancic

The E! host showed how much her son Duke has grown since last year, and that he and Santa are now on better terms.

Aziz Ansari

Ansari gave us the best Christmas gift we could’ve asked for, an insanely adorable baby photo. He also shared some pictures of food but really, who cares when there’s a picture this cute?

Lauren Conrad

Even Conrad’s dogs take better photos than the average person. Don’t even look at the rest of her Christmas photos, they’ll just make you feel bad about your own holiday baking and craft attempts.

Kevin Hart

The comedian and his sons wore matching onesies on Christmas morning, and it’s hard to choose which Hart wore them best.

Rebecca Romijn & Jerry O'Connell

Romijn and O’Connell went all out with the matching Christmas pajamas, with pairs for their twin daughters, three dogs, and two cats.

Miley Cyrus

The extended Cyrus family cozied up around the Christmas tree and got into a fistfight. If you can’t find Miley, she’s the one sticking her tongue out, of course.

Barack Obama

Apparently the President sees wrapping paper as the perfect canvas for some self-promotion.

Anna Wintour

Wintour’s daughter Bee Schaffer posted this photo on Christmas with the caption, ”My mom threw out our tree before Christmas Day because ‘it was too messy.’” Whatever gifts were inside those bags were probably worth it.

Christmas was all about family for Rihanna, who posted a whole bunch of pictures alongside different members of her family, and even wore some festive accessories.
