Beyoncé & Blue Ivy in Matching Gold Gowns Is Mother-Daughter Fashion Goals
That whole matchy-matchy thing you've thought about trying to pull off with your kid? Yeah, you can retire that thought right now. Just step away from the coordinating prints. Game over: None of us will ever achieve the level of high-couture mommy-and-me fashion that Beyoncé and Blue Ivy rocked this weekend at the 2018 Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles. Normally we can't even with these two, but this time, like, we really can't.
Beyoncé thrilled fans by posting images on her website along with three Instagram posts late Monday featuring the glam event. Jay-Z was on hand too, as well as Grandma Tina Knowles, who hosted the event with her husband, Richard Lawson. But it must be said: Bey and Blue stole the damn show in custom gold gowns by Falguni & Shane Peacock (Beyoncé) and Annakiki (Blue Ivy).
Blue Ivy was clearly feeling the glitz, as she snagged an auction paddle at the event and tried to bid $19,000 for a painting of a young Sidney Poitier. (Papa Bear Jay-Z shot that down, but Blue Ivy still managed to bid on — and win — a $10,000 piece of art anyway. Like most 6-year-olds, Blue Ivy is passionate about amassing a proper art collection. Kids today.)
The event had a very cool From Waco to Wakanda theme celebrating the massive impact of the film Black Panther. Beyoncé was also the recipient of the 2018 WACO Theater Humanitarian Award along with her mother-in-law, Gloria Carter. (Who knew Bey had an MIL?)
Beyoncé accessorized her gorgeous gown with Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture earrings, shoes by Jimmy Choo (obvi) and a Uniquely Wired M headpiece.
Blue's golden headpiece was also made by the creator of her dress, Annakiki.
Later, Beyoncé changed into a short satin frock with yet another killer train. Repeat after us: We are not worthy.
