So Cute! Blue Ivy Carter Steals the Show at the CFDA Awards

06/09/2016 at 12:10 PM ET

Beyoncé may wear the fashion pants in her household, but Blue Ivy is coming for Mom’s crown!

The 4-year-old daughter of the “Formation” singer and husband Jay Z stole the show at the CFDA Awards Monday — obviously following in her mom’s footsteps, considering the latter was the winner of the CFDA Fashion Icon award that night.

While Bey, 34, stunned in a glittering, striped Givenchy Haute Couture suit complete with $9 million in Lorraine Schwartz jewels, a wide-brimmed hat and Louboutin heels, Blue rocked a white kids’ blazer, black top, and the star piece: a black feathered skirt.

Aside from her beautiful smile, Blue’s skirt was the highlight of her ensemble as she stuck close to her parents throughout the night.

It’s no surprise that Blue can pull off such a look at 4 years old, as a fashion-savvy nature runs in her family — starting with her great-grandmother.

“As long as I can remember, fashion has always been a part of my life,” Beyoncé said in her speech after accepting her CFDA Fashion Icon award. “Its effect on me actually started before I was born.”

She goes on to describe how her grandmother was a seamstress whose skills were passed down to her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson — who then instilled the value of the hard work that goes into fashion in Beyoncé through her time crafting clothes for Destiny’s Child.

“When we were starting out in Destiny’s Child, high-end labels, they didn’t want to dress four black, country, curvy girls,” she continued. “And we couldn’t afford designer dresses and couture. My mother was rejected from every showroom in New York.”

She added, “But like my grandmother, she used her talent and her creativity to give her children their dreams.”

I am sure the bird from which the feathers were stolen, would had liked to have kept them.

I new she’d look adorable if they ever decided to comb her hair.

Daisy, if you could spell, I’d be just a little bit impressed.

$850 for a skirt? I don’t care who’s wearing it?, that’s ridiculous.

I guess when you make lot’s of money, $820 retail little girl skirt is a drop in the bucket. Maybe, she bought several little girl skirts for disadvantaged girls (not at $820) and it isn’t mentioned.

Ona on

That hat she is wearing kinda too big for her.

Volly on

Love the suit she is wearing, so stylish.

“fashion has been part of my life” is a statement anyone should be embarrassed to make. Fashion is fatuous; fashion isn’t substantive. Fashion isn’t therapeutic. What an embarrassing “award” to get.

Rose on

$820 for a child’s skirt is not a big deal for them since they have so much money.

Linda on

I’m impressed they finally did something to her hair…she looks cute!

Yaya on

Aww. Blue looks cute.

Vanna on

She looks so good in that suit.

I bought a Burberry purse for $875, my grandmother said it looked like it came from Kohl’s.
All purses look like that of you don’t know what you’re looking for.
This is my purse vs skirt theory.
I think purses are different; you can use it all the time with every outfit and for most of the year (if you choose right), plus it actually increases in value. I bought a Louis Vuitton bag for $1100 and sold it 6 years later for $1900.
A size 4 skirt for a kid is stupid. No value increasing, no repeated wearings, nothing.
Plus, it’s ugly. Maybe she should shop at Kohl’s?

No little girl should EVER wear a $820 skirt. Don’t care how much money the parents make.

Beyoncé should have put the skirt on cause her fashion statement was way off. I’m really trying to figure where and why or who deem Beyoncé dress well. She just dress exprensive in those ugly clothes.
