Blue Ivy Carter has been a rightful scene stealer on Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour, regularly taking the stage in custom looks that complement her mother’s. Yesterday, Beyoncé dropped photos from her July 29 show in East Rutherford, New Jersey, offering a close-up look at another one of Blue and Bey’s coordinating ensembles: matching bedazzled “IV” jerseys and knee-high boots.
It’s worth noting Blue is just 11 years old. In addition to performing perfect choreography on stage during her mom’s global tour, she already is a Grammy winner. (She has been since she was 9.)
Blue is a natural performer, though, as her grandmother and Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles revealed in a birthday tribute to Blue when she turned 10. Tina wrote at the time:
The day that you were born was one of the best days of my life. I was really praying and pushing your mom to have you on January 4, which is my birthday. I really wanted you to share my birthday, but like your auntie Solo, you decided to come when you were good and damn ready, and that was on January 7, three days after my birthday. Knowing you and your personality now, I realize that you needed your own day because you were such a queen, and you are so very special! You can sing dance, play basketball, play, volleyball, paint draw, sculpt, sew, write poetry, write songs, create, act, play the piano! I could go on and on. Because there’s really nothing that you can’t do. You are funny and beautiful and graceful, kind, and so smart. I could not ask for a better granddaughter Ms. Blue Ivy Carter! I could not be more blessed, grateful, and completely in love with another human. You truly bring me joy!!❤️❤️❤️ Grandma T.
