Part of our Tiny Tastemakers series, meet the new class of celebrity children who are delivering style inspiration to the masses — not to mention a serious sales boost to the kids’ market.
Next up, we take a look into the gilded world of Blue Ivy Carter:
Her parents, Beyoncé and Jay Z, are two of the most famous people on the planet. But 5-year-old Blue Ivy still manages to upstage them with her over-the-top designer wardrobe. Who can forget her red carpet spectacle at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards, when she rocked a voluminous, tulle-skirted dress by Mischka Aoki (rumored to cost nearly $11,000), accessorized with Giuseppe Zanotti Junior crystal-studded high-tops and a diamond tiara? Now that she’s a big sister — her twin siblings arrived last month — Blue has two tiny protégés to pass on her style secrets to.
Spotted in: Classic Converse kicks are a go-to for Blue. Sitting courtside at the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, she wore a pair of white Chucks with a Gucci dress and denim jacket. On a visit to Los Angeles’ Museum of Ice Cream in May, she sparkled in glittery ballet flats by Bloch.
“It” factor: “Blue is incredibly chic — she is always wearing outfits that coordinate with her amazingly fashionable mother. You get the sense, though, that Blue very much has a say and opinion about what she wears. She has a sharp sense of style already at such a young age, and with Beyoncé’s influence, she is always ready to make a splash,” said Vogue alum and Maisonette co-founder Sylvana Durrett.
