Beyonce turned 35 on Sunday, September 4, and hive took to social media in one big love fest to show their appreciation for the singer. In fact, the hashtag “HappyBirthdayBeyonce” began trending early in the day, with memes and gifs cropping up on Twitter as fans celebrated the accomplishments of one of the industry’s most prolific artists. And we’re here to celebrate her, too!
Feast your eyes on Beyonce’s KILLER VMAs performance and some pics people have been sharing throughout the day, and have a big glass of Lemonade in celebration!
If you’re Beyonce‘s VMA date, you’re going to look like a BALLER.
Especially if said plus one is Blue Ivy Carter. The 4 year old walked the red carpet in dress worth nearly $11,000, and that matched her mom’ sparkling, silver-y, ethereal gown. And it even has a name: the “Grand Royalle.”
Blue Ivy’s floor-length dress by children’s designer Mischka Aoki costs a whopping $10,950 at Bergdorf Goodman, Page Six reports. The extravagant creation features a leatherette gold metallic laser-cut bodice and intricate 3D gold metallic appliqué. But you gotta be comfy, which is why the daughter of the Beyhive rocked tiny pink sneakers underneath her billowing skirt.
On the VMAs carpet, the Carter ladies posed alongside “Mothers of the Movement” including Sybrina Fulton, Lezley McSpadden and Gwen Carr — who lost their sons Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner in tragic shootings and appeared in the songstress’ “Lemonade” album holding pictures of their late sons. So powerful.
As much as this year’s MTV VMAS were outshined by the splendor that was Beyonce, there were some good moments captured on film- and we’ve got our favorites to show Y’ALL.
Firstly, this (above) epic instagram, which was taken after Sunday night’s awards, shows power couples (from left to right) Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, Beyoncé and Jay Z, Lauren Branche and Steve Stoute, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, and Cassie and Diddy. And yes, Kim is totally gazing over at Queen Bey. LOVE IT.
Other moments? Britney Spears making her comeback, Beyonce and her VMA date Blue Ivy, and of COURSE the cuteness that is Rihanna and Drake. CHECK IT OUT!
Beyonce and Jay-Z are in Paris right now, doing god knows what to be so fabulous (wearing that adorable polka dot dress is a start. LOVE IT). Bey, J and little Blue Ivy enjoyed lunch at Loulou restaurant in the Tuileries’s garden yesterday looking very summery and fun.
Coming off of Lemonade, the Carters are looking like the first family of wholesome. Or hey, maybe they’re celebrating all the VMA noms #Lemonade is getting?
