Beyoncé Knowles emerged for the first time since she gave birth to her first child, Blue Ivy Carter, last month. Last night, she attended the first of two concerts hubby Jay-Z is doing at Carnegie Hall to benefit the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation and the United Way. For the occasion, the singer and new mommy chose a $445 red ruched 3/4 length sleeve dress from Alice by Temperley‘s Cruise 2011 collection, a $1,450 Alexander McQueen skull clasp clutch, and $2,795 Christian Louboutin embroidered pumps.
She rounded out the look with a pair of good hoops, a textured gold bangle, and, of course, freshly manicured blue nails.
Her Cruise 2011 collection Molina dress has front ruching to conceal any post pregnancy bumps:
Her striking gold clutch features an iconic skull clasp, and is finished with Swarovski crystal- and pearl-detailing:
What can I say? The woman looks ah-mazing. Nursing bra, be damned! These second and third-rate divas better get some galoshes, because Ms. Knowles is making it rain up in here! Hair, makeup, outfit, accessories, Spanx: flawless.
What do you think?
