Life beyond style

Whether you spent February 14 cuddled up with your respective loved one or angrily denouncing it as a capitalist scheme, there aren’t many holidays that get people talking as much on social media as Valentine’s Day.

While you were doing whatever it is one does on Valentine’s Day nowadays, the rich and famous were doing it better. Trust us – they always do.

In between gifting each other extremely extravagant gifts, Will Smith, Michelle Obama and most of the Kardashian-Jenner clan were out and about, giving it their all for their loved ones.

Kanye West shut down Instagram, Will Smith played the flute (is there anything that man can’t do?), and Barack Obama was gifted a very thoughtful playlist, which you can listen to by heading to Michelle’s Instagram bio.

Check out some of the highlights below and then let us know how you spent Valentine’s Day in the comments.
