Reason 1: She had hookahs scattered throughout the party. Did your mom let you smoke anything in her presence? Probably not (but okay, smart move, mom!).
Reason 2: Her birthday party involved a vague Alice in Wonderland theme, which seemed to mostly affect the headwear of her guests.
Reason 3: Photo booth!
Reason 4: The hottest girl in the Glee cast wants to hang out with Kylie. Isn't Naya Rivera a dead ringer for Kim Kardashian at this angle?
Reason 5: Her sister Kourtney brings just enough crazy with her fashion choices.
Reason 6: Drake, Big Sean, and Tyga were all willing to pose for a pic with her occasionally embarrassing almost bro-in-law.
Reason 7: Having Khloe Kardashian for an older sister must be fun.
Reason 8: It seems like Kris Jenner was on fairly good behavior, for once.
Reason 9: Having celeb makeup artist Joyce Bonelli on the payroll means she can trick out the makeup of your nearest and dearest. Love that disco-ball eye, Kris!
Reason 10: Kylie has tons of awesome friends (Kendall is no slouch, either).
Reason 11: Her sister Kendall managed to pretend she wasn't annoyed that her 16th birthday was not nearly this awesome.
Reason 12: Now Kylie doesn't have to rely on Kendall for rides around town anymore!
Reason 13: Kylie's friends seem like good people—none of them have ever sold a story about her, at least!
Reason 14: Her family loves a good fashion moment.
Reason 15: Her party had a mantra, "We're all MAD here."
Reason 16: She gets to see Scott make that face whenever she wants!
Reason 17: Freakin' Drake performed at her party. Drake.
Reason 18: She can somehow make a red lip, bare midriff, and leather skirt look chic. Impressive!
Reason 19: You know that song that's always played at Sweet Sixteens that goes, "sweet sixteen and never been kissed"? Welp, Drake kissed Kylie on her birthday. Sit down, everyone else.
Reason 20: The special guests at her after-party got very on-trend camo jumpsuits. Best sleepover ever.
Reason 21: This moment is cooler than your wedding and high school graduation combined. Sorry!
Where was your Sweet 16, in your backyard? Well, strap in and prepare yourself, because the Instagrams from Kylie Jenner’s birthday blowout will prove once and for all that the youngest of the Kardashian family is acing this thing called life.
