Beyoncé Knowles was one of the lucky invitees to Michelle Obama‘s 50th Birthday party this weekend, and her gold mini dress won’t be forgotten any time soon. But the real story is that at some point during the weekend, Blue Ivy Carter got to hang out with the Obamas’ new puppy, Sunny, so if it’s okay with everyone else I’m going to just sit here for a second and try to keep my ovaries from exploding.
Before I gush over the Blue Ivy photos in a truly humiliating manner, let’s cover Beyoncé’s show stopping dress. The Randi Rahm beaded and fringed dress barely left room for a tampon string (sorry), and I kind of wonder how she sat down in it without giving the world an extra special show (although she clearly managed in the above photo). Not that that’s remotely a bad thing–it’s one of my favorite looks on Beyoncé in a while.
I’m going to agree with the team over at Red Carpet Fashion Awards and speculate that Beyoncé likely performed at some point during the evening, since the dress seems a bit more fitting for the stage than, say, eating dinner. And you don’t have to worry about keeping your legs crossed when you’re dancing around on stage. Her makeup is spot on, and I love that she went with pink lips over red, which I think would have been overwhelming in concert with the dress.
Okay. Now let’s talk about Blue Ivy. This child is perfect, puppies are perfect, and the world is looking a little brighter today. Here’s new best friends Blue and Sunny:
Look at them making eye contact! And her little fancy dress! Seriously. Somebody slap me.
Everything’s right in the world, even if it’s just for the few moments that I’m looking at these photos.
