The year is approaching its fag-end and this is the best time to recall the gorgoeus moments of the past 12 months.

Year 2014 has been quite a controversial one. From "Ellen's Oscar Selfie" to "Kim Kardashian's Butt Photo", the year has managed to create a lot of buzz.

Ellen deGeneres's selfie with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep and Kevin Spacey during the Oscars earlier this year went viral and broke Twitter records.

The ISIS beheaded many innocent people throughout the year and the images released by the militants have left a scar in the minds of people across the world. Another emotional image was that of a 20-year-old boy, who was killed by a tiger in Delhi zoo.

In November, Kim Kardashian grabbed everyone's attention with the Paper Magazine cover photo. The Kardashian chick's 'creative pose' made the photo viral.

One of the local sensations was the photo of Merin Joseph, an IPS trainee officer from Kerala, which went viral on Facebook and Twitter.

Apart from these, the photos of a white officer hugging a black boy, a nanny hitting a child, Bill Clinton ogling at a woman's breast and many others created huge buzz on the Internet.
