It may be Christmas Eve, but for One Direction fans, Dec. 24 is notable for something a bit more important: It’s Louis Tomlinson‘s birthday.
In honor of the boy bander turning 22, we thought we’d celebrate his big day in the best way possible: with GIFs. Below are the 22 times Tomlinson proved he is the prettiest member of 1D. And if you don’t agree with that assumption, we bet you will soon.
1. That time a makeup brush tickle led to this grin
2. That time he raised his eyebrows as if to say, ‘Duh, I’m pretty’
3. Again, duh face
4. That time he ran his hands through his luxurious hair
5. That time he walked with determination
6. That time, through mock tears, he kissed a fake bird
7. That time he reminded us he doesn’t just wake up with those locks
8. That time someone suggested Harry Styles was prettier and he was like, ‘Next…’
9. That time a side view wasn’t enough and he allowed us to view his face full on
10. That time he was like, ‘Yeah, I wear makeup. Big deal.’
12. That time he allowed someone else to touch that heavenly hair of his
13. That time he managed to make goofy fake driving with Niall Horan look sexy
14. That time his gorgeous grin managed to coax a smile from a tired Zayn Malik
15. That time he made fake swimming look divine
16. That time he perked Liam Payne up with a cute microphone boop
17. That time he spun in circles in an airport and remained flawless
18. That time he was like, ‘Yeah, I know I look good’
19. That time he rubbed grapefruit juice all over his face and it was only barely weird
20. That time he got real about One Direction and it only made him look better
21. That time his face came into focus and it was just perfect
22. Any questions?
