Are these narcissistic traits or just normal?

Expecting to be invited places and included, becoming resentful when it doesn't happen.

Wanting to be noticed and to stand out in certain places (preferably through looks, yes I know it's shallow.)

Enjoying the idea of having celebrity friends.

Depends.
If you are expecting to be invited and resentful when not invited by people you don't particularly care about and only because you would stand to gain from being invited then you could make the case that it's a narcissistic trait.
Same applies to the idea of celebrity friends. Would it be because you admire them and/or the reason they're famous or is it just the association to fame itself that you would want?

No, that's not narcissism, not unless accompanied by a number of other traits and behaviors. It's just adolescent insecurity and, yes, adolescent shallowness. You can act like an adolescent no matter how old you are, but for the most part, we see this sort of behavior in teens and 20-somethings.

Not really.

The main traits of Narcissists is a pervasive need for admiration, a sense of entitlement, need to only associate with higher status people and a lack of empathy.

No doesn't sound like it. Narcissists care about themselves only and their image in society
[@7501,Nihiless] i care about my image because thats only because I'm trying to get revenge on someone. I have a plan.. it involves me becoming toned :)
