2014 brought a whole new set of celebs into the pop culture crowd!
toofab complied a list of the stars that caught our attention this year -- and there are definitely a few Hollywood icons in the making.
Chris Pratt transformed from a lovable "Parks and Recreation" goofball to a bonafide, hunky leading man. Not only did "The Lego Movie" gross $468 million at the global box office, but his action-packed Marvel film "Guardians of the Galaxy" brought in over $770 million worldwide ... and counting.
And with those abs, we would definitely follow Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) to the ends of the galaxy and beyond!
Sam Smith's powerful ballad "Stay With Me" has definitely stayed with fans. The 22-year-old singer has emerged as one of 2014's most promising new talents, topping the charts in the U.S. and the U.K.
The British crooner also was named "Breakout of the Year" by Out, and he opened up to the mag about never being in the closet. "My main aim is to tell people how good its been for me so that, hopefully, gay men or parents with gay children can look at my story and think, 'Wow, that's how it should be.' That's what we can work towards," he said.
Our last Breakout of the Year is pint-sized reality star North West!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter first stole our hearts as an infant in 2013, but she earned her stripes as a certified fashion star when she made her debut in Vogue this year.
With an adorably grumpy expression, the tiny tot stole the spotlight away from her famous parents, going naked in her first high-fashion photo shoot.
Nori also attended her first Fashion Week this year -- so, we can't wait to see what 2015 brings for this little fashionista!
