Celebrities come and go. Some only last for 15 minutes, but others hit the A-list and stay there for a lifetime.
These are the breakout stars of 2013; let’s see who sticks around for 2014.
Benedict Cumberbatch: Benedict may have gained recognition from British TV series “Sherlock,” but it’s his obsessive fanbase that call themselves Cumberb*tches that have truly made him a household name. If you haven’t heard of him, don’t worry, all the pop culture savvy 17 to 23-year-old women in your family are already in love with him.
Margot Robbie: Margot Robbie played Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in The Wolf of Wall Street, she was also the culprit in those Will Smith cheating rumors that fizzled out as quickly as they started. With a Scorsese film AND a cheating rumor under her belt already…she better make it to the A-list.
Lorde: The indie pop singer from New Zealand crashed American radios this year with her smash hit “Royals,” and she maintained relevancy by having an opinion on everyone from Selena Gomez to Drake.
Kylie and Kendall: Kylie and Kendall were always floating on the periphery of the Kardashian fame bubble but with Kylie’s Instagram presence and Kendall’s actual modeling career and maybe-romance with Harry Styles, these two are going to be more famous than Khloe and Kourtney combined.
Ariana Grande: Although Ariana has been on a Nickelodeon TV show for years, she didn’t really rise to fame until she dropped her first album this year. Everyone quickly forgot she sounded exactly like Mariah Carey and she became a star in her own right.
Michael B. Jordan: Starring in Fruitvale Station put him on the map, but starring opposite Zac Efron in That Awkward Moment made him ultra cool.
Cara Delevingne: Cara Delevingne has been storming the modeling world for years, but it wasn’t until she started hanging out with Rihanna and Harry Styles that she gained recognition on her own. Cara has had a very good year.
