And Blue Ivy seemed to know a thing or two about the art world as she bid on pieces during the live auction for the second annual Wearable Art Gala at WACO Theatre Center in Los Angeles on Saturday evening.
The six-year-old daughter of Beyonce and Jay Z was having a great time in the front row of the show, waving around a bid card and bidding $19,000 on one piece. ‘Blue is out there bidding,’ celebrity auctioneer Star Jones said with enthusiasm. ‘You gonna do 19?’
Holding a bidding card, Blue seemed overcome with joy as her parents laughed alongside the excited little girl.
‘Her mother and father have been talking about how you gather art and that is a big deal for African Americans,’ Jones said. It’s unclear if Ivy was the highest bidder on the piece, but she definitely seemed to enjoy the process.
Though she’s a multi-platinum artist, Beyonce’s fashion was solid gold Saturday.
The Lemonade talent, 36, commanded attention in a futuristic gold gown while gracing the gala at LA’s Alexandria Ballrooms with daughter Blue Ivy, and her mother Tina Lawson.
There, the Texas-native put her curves on full display in a metal-heavy dress which was equal parts C-3PO and Grecian goddess. Beyonce’s dress plunged to reveal her chest while strategically placed metal bars and ultra-sheer fabric put the starlet’s figure front and center.
