Let's be real: these celebrity friendships are the ultimate Valentine's Day goals.

Step aside, Romeo and Juliet. Keep walking, Wills and Kate. Forget about it, Kim and Kanye.

Your timeless tales of love are not what we’re here for.

Nope, this Valentine’s Day is all about the eternal bond of love shared between a lady and her lady friends – the ultimate friend zone, if you will.

With 24 years of friendship between them, these two are the gold standard when it comes to friendship.

Together, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have written love letters to one another in their autobiographies, hosted the Golden Globes and Emmys together, starred alongside one another on countless episodes of Saturday Night Live, made movies together, and most importantly, always recognised and shouted the undeniable worth of each other and their friendship to the world.

There's nothing like performing in a girl band to test the limits and boundaries of friendships, but 20 years on from forming Destiny's Child (and breaking up and launching successful solo careers), Beyonce and Kelly Rowland are still BFFs.

Despite both being busy parents (Beyonce has five-year-old daughter Blue and is expecting twins; Kelly has two-year-old son Titan), the pair routinely make time for each other, with Kelly saying that when they get together they talk about everything.

"We really, really do," the mother-of-one told W Magazine.

"We talk about playdates with the kids, and we talk about vacations and new opportunities."

Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps

It's a universal truth that if someone will love you through your early 00s fashion phase, they will love you forever. Which is where the friendship love story of former Dawson's Creek actors Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps began - truly, a heady fashion period for us all.

16 years later, the pair attended the premiere of Williams' latest film, Manchester by the Sea together, which is when Williams told reporters, "I’m so in love with her [Phillips]. She’s proof that the love of your life does not have to be a man! That’s the love of my life right there.”

Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston

Let's be honest — it's pretty rare for flatmates to form lasting friendships. They steal your tampons, use all of the hot water, and become obsessed with people who aren't you (also known as boyfriends/girlfriends).

And yet somehow, Rachel Green and Monica Geller managed to make it work both on screen and off.

They've gone through marriage breakdowns, new relationships and relentless pregnancy rumours together, all to become each other's fiercest allies and closest friends.

Given the name of the show they originally met on, that's about as perfect as you can get.

From the early days of their television careers to the greatest heights of fame, this is the friendship time stands still for and history books will be written about.

When asked about their 40-plus years of friendships in a 2010 interview with Barbara Walters, Winfrey said, "She is the mother I never had. She is the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves. I don't know a better person. I don't know a better person."

Through tears, Winfrey added finally, "I've never told her that."

Say what you will about Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian West, their union has all the ingredients you could ever want in a friendship: there is humour, common interests, cute babies, hilarious tweets aplenty, and best of all, their husbands get along.

These two routinely turn red carpet outings into a double date night and even more impressively, along with hair stylist Jen Atkin, have just launched their own book club. Slay, ladies. Slay.

Taylor Swift and literally everyone ever (except Katy Perry).

Truly, aside from her long-running beef with Katy Perry that no one can actually remember the origins of, is there a living female Taylor Swift isn't besties with?

First there was the star-studded video clip for her single Bad Blood, for which the lady lineup included cameos from Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Lena Dunham, Cindy Crawford, Selena Gomez, Cara Delevingne, Jessica Alba, and about a million others, which has since been followed up with an all-girls getaway with the Haim sisters, countless post-award parties with the girls, and the incredible annual Hamptons parties that are all about the girl-friend-zone.

And Taylor, if you're reading this, we are always free for you, girl.
