Beyoncé & Blue Ivy Were Mommy-Daughter Fashion Goals During the Wearable Art Gala

Queen B and her Baby B shimmered beautifully at last weekend’s Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles. The gala’s theme was “WACO to Wakanda,” and by the looks of this mommy-daughter duo, the flare of Black Panther-inspired Wakanda was evident.

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy showed up to the affair head to toe in gold, Beyoncé shining like a true goddess in an extravagant sheer gold gown with a long, textured train, golden headband and long flat gold earrings. Blue wore the cutest headpiece that made her hair appear as if it were made of gold strands, while her dress looked like the flashiest, most expensive gold pom-pom in existence.

The gala was no ordinary party though. It was a warm family affair which celebrated the wonderful women in Beyoncé’s family. Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and her husband Jay-Z along with their mothers were the center of the event. Bey’s mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, hosted the gala and presented her daughter with the WACO Theater Center’s Humanitarian Award for her many efforts to aid humanitarian causes around the world. Jay-Z’s mother, Gloria Carter, received the first Everyday People Award for founding the Shawn Carter Foundation with Jay-Z.

Possibly the warmest (and arguably the most impressive achievement) was created by little Blue Ivy herself. According to a tweet from the event, Blue Ivy wrote adorable handwritten letters which were featured in the gala’s programs. Some sayings were, “For my grandma, I love you. Thank you for creating my Daddy. You make me happy,” and “For my Mommy, thank you for my brother and sister. Thank you for loving me and Daddy,”.

Pardon me, I’m choking up with soft tears. Twitter was extra moved and baffled by how perfect this family is.

We already knew this was a super-family, but this gala really drove home how wonderful they actually are. They’re not just dressed in gold for luxury’s sake, but they have hearts of gold too. Beyoncé and her daughter were so precious with their matching outfits, we hope we can see more sweet bonding moments between our queen and her baby girl.
