Here are some new photos of Beyonce and baby Blue Ivy in New York City yesterday. According to Fame/Flynet, Bey took Blue furniture shopping at DCC. You can’t see anything of Blue here – no hair, no feet, nothing. Was it really cold enough in NYC yesterday for Bey and Blue to be bundled up like this? It was low to mid-70s most of the day in Virginia – let me look it up. The Weather Channel says it was high 50s and low 60s. Sure, that’s cold enough for a light coat for Bey and a blanket for Blue. But it still seems like Beyonce is dressed for a winter day. As for the “fashion” of Beyonce’s layers. The menswear jacket is awful. The pants are HIDEOUS. The black scarf is nice. And I’m still enjoying how Bey is wearing flats and low heels nowadays. The Mail breaks down the disastrous look:
Beyonce stepped out in New York today and offered a timely reminder that fashion is not always our friend. The 30-year-old is one of the sexiest women in the world – she has incendiary body, an incredible smile, impossibly luxuriant hair and that most elusive quality, a sparkly personality.
So if she doesn’t look good in three of this season’s key trends, there is no hope for any of us. Purveyor of the staggering heel and the tiny bottom-skimming sequinned mini, it’s almost a travesty to see Beyonce swamped in boyfriend style printed chinos. Both this style and crazy prints are on point this season, and there can’t be many patterns wackier than this black and white cartoon characters in lingerie affair. They’re difficult trousers to wear, but with a pair of the aforementioned heels, might’ve worked.
The boyfriend blazer, too, would look fine, sharp even, over a pretty fitted dress. But the superstar has paired the masculine items with loafers, again, super-fashionable for women to wear this season, but still a mannish style. The whole look fails, but Beyonce is of course, slightly more concerned with looking after her four-month-old baby, Blue Ivy. And the loafers do offered a smart alternative to the flash heel, without resorting to the ubiquitous ballet pump.
Mother and daughter were out and about to check out yet more furniture stores. The Superstar couple are said to have splashed out on items – to outfit THREEnurseries in their various homes – including a solid gold rocking horse and a diamante-encrusted high chair among a list of extravagant goods for their baby. With an alleged £240,000 alone dropped on the special bedrooms for the baby.
A source told Star magazine: ‘Together they’ve bought a Swarovski-studded high chair by Carla Monchen for £10,000, and a Fantasy ‘posh tots’ coach carriage crib for £30,000. Jay-Z bought Beyonce a solid gold handmade Ginza Tanaka rocking horse for £400,000. They’ve even splashed out on a £20,000 magical windmillplayhouse for the garden and a mini Bugatti car, too.’

Something really funky has been going on with Beyonce’s post-baby style. It’s like she doesn’t know who or what to “homage” now. Some days she’s trying to find her way back to skin-tight and sexy, some days she’s “homage-ing” Zoe Kravitz, and with this look, she just seems… I don’t know. It’s funky. And before you yell at me for judging a new mother’s clothes – please. Beyonce wants to be photographed with Blue. That’s what these little outings are for. Beyonce is color-coordinating everything, and some of these “candid” photos are so posed. What I can’t understand is why Bey can’t decide on one “look” for her new motherhood role.
As for the furniture shopping… I find it really weird. Beyonce and Jay-Z were said to have spared no expense outfitting the multiple nurseries and having everything prepared for when Blue came. But now Bey is out furniture shopping, and last week, paparazzi got photos of a little white crib (bassinet?) being delivered (photo below). Could it be that Beyonce still needs to buy even more stuff for Blue?
