Everyone needs a good pal, including those in the spotlight. From Mary Charteris and Lindsay Lohan and Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner to Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift, they’ve all got someone they love to hang out and spend their time with. Whether it’s a casual shopping date, a workout buddy or someone to attend all the top red carpet events with, there’s just no denying that having someone to share your memories with makes them all the more special, for both us and those living a life in lights.

Take super girl clique Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid. The star-studded trio love to attend all the private invite-only events together – and when they do, they’re certainly not afraid to let their hair down and really enjoy themselves. Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and fellow actress Melanie Griffith, meanwhile, love to take the torture of working out away by teaming it with the ultimate chin-wag. A little bit of distraction goes a long way, right? What’s more, Dakota Fanning and Kirsten Dunst are often snapped arriving at Hollywood premieres and parties together (and then leaving in a pretty worse for wear state after having partied the night away).

And it’s not just us women who appreciate a companion in our lives. Eddie Redmayne recruited Kings of Leon star Jared Leto as his sidekick, while Jay-Z has been seen enjoying many a dinner, awards evening and party with Gwyneth Paltrow. Of course, we couldn’t go without mentioning some of our cutest celeb couples. Kate Middy and Prince William are practically inseparable, as are Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson and Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

All in all, if there’s one thing you take from this, it’s that the importance of a best friend stands strong no matter who you are. Check out our most adorable best friend snaps here..
