Blue Ivy’s Diamond Encrusted Braids Were The Real Star Of “The Lion King” Red Carpet

As expected, The Lion King premiere brought with it a hoard of celebs on their A-game: Donald Glover, Chance the Rapper, and the original Destiny’s Child trio, which, of course, brings us to Beyoncé. Yes, Queen Bey’s Alexander McQueen ensemble was one for the books, but there might be a new queen of fashion on the horizon: her daughter Blue Ivy.

Descending down the red carpet holding her mom’s hand, the seven-year-old without question outshone everyone within her radius in her McQueen tuxedo dress. But, the twinning moment between her and Beyoncé didn’t stop there—both donned only the finest of diamond-encrusted accessories from Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, including Blue’s glitzy hair ties for her mini space buns.

Here’s a short story. I grew up my whole life obsessed with all things related to #TheLionKing; like all three films, the Timon and Pumbaa tv show, the broadway play and especially the broadway soundtrack. Needless to say the original film was immensely impactful on my music and overall life. So when my big bro Donald got casted as Simba, he did the coolest thing ever and told director Jon Favreau to call me in as a consultant to keep the original flavor. So for about a year I would go to the LK studio and see early animations, scenes, music direction or assemblies and they’d always be out of this world amazing. One day I’m there Jon asked me to do some singing stuff, another day he asks me to do some lines. Its all a blur, but I’ll tell u its one of the best blurs of my whole life. I am so blessed to know people like Donald and Jon man. AMAZING FILM, AMAZING CAST AND AN AMAZING NIGGHT LAST NIGHT. GOD BLESS AND LONG LIVE THE KING

If you needed proof that Blue will follow in the path of tiny KarJenner tots in becoming one of the biggest fashion influencers under 10, this is it. That is all.
