When she’s not performing or watching Hov watch The Throne in Europe, Blue Ivy has been Beyoncé’s go-to accessory for trips around New York City this spring and summer, often shielding her first born from the invasive lenses of the paparazzi with a variety of colorful scarves, blankets, and shawls. Beyoncé was spotted leaving department store Bergdorf Goodman’s in Manhattan earlier on Wednesday, once again with her shopping partner in tow. Plenty of photographers captured mom and daughter leaving the store, with Bey’s newly braided hair receiving most of the attention as Blue’s face was held ever so close to her chest, but the camera of one bold/potentially sketchy fan site is responsible for getting the money shot: a clear image of B & B inside the store, revealing the six-month-old’s full head of hair and extremely pinchable cheeks to the masses—we dare you not to try and squeeze them through your screen. It’s everything we’ve hoped for and more!
Our first introduction to Blue came from the controlled release of official family photos in February. That dark mop of hair hasn’t gone anywhere, only growing curlier and thus lending itself to more of mom’s experimentation in the styling chair, while eyes suggest she knows we’re all watching her (and thinks w’re a little crazy for doing so). It’s all because we love you, Blue! Now please don’t tell mom and dad about the time we sat outside your window blasting “Glory.”
