It's National Aunts & Uncles Day! While we all love our parents, our aunts and uncles will always hold a special place in our hearts—largely for encouraging us to be a bit more wild than good old mom and dad. Whether it's teaching us what our best angle is for a selfie or how to apply makeup, these relatives are always here for us—even if it's just for a super fun time or loving hug.

From Solange and Beyoncé to the whole Kardashian-Jenner clan, we've rounded up the coolest of the bunch. Check out our fave star aunts and uncles below.
