Beyonce and Jay Z walk the red carpet with their adorable four-year-old daughter Blue Ivy in the press room at the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards held at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Monday (June 6) in New York City.
The 34-year-old entertainer made a surprise appearance to accept the Fashion Icon Award and Blue was in the audience to watch her mom give her speech.
Blue sat alongside jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz and held a phone with stickers all over the case to snap photos.
“I want to say thank you to every designer who works tirelessly to make people think they can write their own story. Y’all are fairy godmothers, magicians, sculptors, and sometimes even our therapist,” Bey said during her speech (via Vogue). “I encourage you to not forget this power you have or to take it lightly. We have the opportunity to contribute to a society where any girl can look at a billboard or magazine cover and see her own reflection. Soul has no color, no shape, no form. Just like all of your work, it goes far beyond what the eye can see. You have the power to change perception, to inspire and empower, and to show people how to embrace their complications, and see the flaws, and the true beauty and strength that’s inside all of us. Thank you so much for this incredible award, I’ll never forget this night. God bless you all. Thank you.”
FYI: Blue Ivy is waering a Milly Mini dress.
