2017 has definitely been Mr Mendes' year!

Ever since he burst into the public eye as a Vine star, Shawn's been growing up before our very eyes - but, without doubt, 2017 is the year he really took it up a notch... so here's why this year was Shawn Mendes' ultimate glow up.

That Armani shoot 

Erm HELLO, Mr Mendes! Shawn surprised the world with his very suave Armani campaign and proved 2017 is the year he really took it up a notch with this seriously grown up high-fashion shoot! 


#EAConnected so excited to share this campaign I did with @Armani!

Moving out to live on his own 

Everyone knows this is a hella big step and Shawn was only 18, but he recently revealed to his fans that he was moving into a new place... we'll keep an eye out for the BBQ invites, yeah? 


Performing in front of 80,000 of you at Capital's Summertime Ball 

Shawn made his Summertime Ball debut this year and he definitely had the whole of Wembley Stadium in the palm of his hand as he took to the stage - just beautiful! 


Giving fans free rein to design his next tatt

This is definitely a bold - if somewhat dangerous - decision... Shawn offered up the chance for his fans to design his next tattoo, although he slightly altered the final design, it's still a badass move to give your fans free reign for what you'll have inked on your flesh forever! 


3 Billboard Award nominations 

This year, Shawn racked up three huge nominations in the prestigious awards for Top Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Social Artist - although he didn't walk away with a gong on the night, he was up against some serious competition in the form of Drake, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, and just being a nominee is impressive enough!

Performing around the globe on his Illuminate World Tour 

It's no mean feat taking on a solo world tour, but Shawn Mendes sold out huge venues including London's O2 Arena and his show received rave reviews. Not bad for an 18-year-old and his guitar! 


He even released his own fragrance - that's when you know you've made it! 

Shawn dropped 'Shawn Signature' on us, and of course it smells flipping amazing. You know you're a big deal when you have your very own scent, right?
