There’s nothing quite as adorbs as a well-dressed mommy and child duo. Allow Beyoncé and Blue Ivy to demonstrate. The performer was spotted at the second annual Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles over the weekend, and while the long gold dress and delicate chain that decorated her hair was a show-stopper, Bey’s best accessory was her mini me, six-year-old Blue Ivy, who was also wearing a flouncy gold gown and a little gold metallic wig.
The pair looked absolutely smashing, making a huge splash upon arrival as Blue Ivy waved enthusiastically to onlookers.
Beyoncé’s outfit was a custom creation, dreamt up by Indian fashion house Falguni Shane Peacock, which is known for its avant garde designs.
“We wanted to create an art statement, taking inspiration from the Nubian warrior queen [Amanishakheto],” the designers Falguni and Shane Peacock told WWD. The cutouts, they explained, were meant to mimic sturdy armor.
“The elaborate gold train was added to create a 3D effect that emphasized royalty. Between the metallic cutouts to the gold dramatic train, we attained an artistic statement while respecting the Nubian inspiration,” they said.
And what a train! It was so dramatic that at least one handler was required to carry and maneuver it around as Bey moved throughout the night. (Imagine putting that on a resume? Beyoncé’s Official Train Handler.)
It’s not the first time Beyoncé and Blue have dressed up all glam together. Remember their matching outfits on the red carpet at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards (pictured at the top of this story)?
Another super adorable moment of the night was when Bey’s very own ma, Tina Knowles Lawson presented both Beyoncé and her MIL, Gloria Carter, with awards for their humanitarian work.
“Honouring Beyoncé and Mrs. Carter is just an honour for us because so many people have asked to honour Beyoncé and she’s always said no. So, she couldn’t tell me no because I’m her mom,” Knowles Lawson said on stage. “But the brave thing is that she has done so, so much for humanitarian methods and she never really talks about it or does a big hoop-dee-doo about it.”
Little Blue sat alongside her dad, Jay-Z, watching the whole thing unfold. Talk about a family affair to remember! We just hope that Bey and Blue hang on to these adorable matching gold gowns because they’ll make awesome dress-up outfits for a rainy Sunday with nothing better to do.
