Power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z, along with their daughter Blue Ivy, attended the second annual Wearable Art Gala over the weekend, hosted by Tina Knowles Lawson and Richard Lawson. Although Beyoncé was awarded the humanitarian award, her 6-year-old daughter stole the show.
During the Gala, there was a live auction of various artwork. Blue Ivy, 6-years-old, dressed in all gold -matching her mom-decided to take part in bidding for an acrylic painting of actor Sidney Poitier. With the wave of a paddle, Blue bid $17,000 for the painting.
Blue’s father, Jay-z, jokingly tried to stop her, but Blue wouldn’t give in and continued to make another bid of $19,000. The eldest daughter of the music icons lost the painting to producer Tyler Perry who bid $20,000. Blue Ivy, however didn’t leave empty-handed, she bid and won a piece of art made up of deconstructed law books and medical books for $10,000.
Beyoncé won the humanitarian award presented by her mother. Former first lady Michelle Obama also had kind words, “I love you, I’m inspired by you. I’m so honored and proud of everything that you have achieved and everything that you have contributed to our country and our world.”
