Pregnant women normally don't wear 5-inch heels when they're walking the streets of New York City, but then again, Beyonce isn't your normal pregnant mama-to-be. The chart topper was recently seen sporting some interesting looking skate heels that have been attracting a lot of attention from both fashionistas and fashion bloggers.
Beyonce's Alain Quilici's Payson Skate Lace-Up Booties retail for $1,180, according to Us Weekly. The most unique feature of the ankle-high booties is that the heel and toe are bridged by a one-inch platform that creates the look of an ice skate. She was recently snapped wearing a pair of the brown leather boots with her trusted bodyguard by her side, should anything happen to the fashionable mom-to-be, of course.
Meanwhile, sources close to the fashion maven, who is about six months along in her pregnancy, recently revealed that she is expecting a girl. In Touch Weekly reports a friend of the couple saying, "Beyonce is thrilled she's having a daughter."
The close friend also adds that even though Beyonce would have been happy with either a boy or a girl, she had secretly hoped for a girl. "She and her mother are so close, and she's wanted to have that relationship with her own child," the friend told the magazine.
Beyonce, who is also reportedly working on a maternity line, has been stocking up on clothes for her future daughter and is constructing not one, but three nurseries and spending a reported $250,000 on furniture and furnishings.
Heck, we wouldn't be surprised if her mini-me had a pair of matching $1,180 baby heels waiting for her in one of her three closets, too.
