Having pledged to take her post-baby weight loss slowly, Beyoncé has stunned us with her immaculate wardrobe decisions since the birth of little Blue Ivy just eight weeks ago. With bang on accessories choices – from Isabel Marant’s sneakers to Charlotte Olympia’s Kitty flats – to the ultra-sexy dresses by Alice Temperley and Monique Lhuillier, Bey hasn’t put a foot wrong. However, nothing had prepared us for seeing Beyoncé’s post baby booty in a Victoria Beckham number.
Since her well-deserved Best Designer Brand of the Year win at last November’s British Fashion Awards, Lady Beckham has continued her unstoppable roll with a host of red carpet scores. Attending Michelle Obama’s fundraiser held in New York’s Greenwich Hotel last night, Beyoncé’s choice of the brand for was even more of a premiere league coup simply because the sapphire coloured dress so perfectly hugged Mrs Carter’s assets.
Adding a hint of her own style with layered necklaces and strappy Nicholas Kirkwood heels – as well as the now omnipresent blue mani-pedi in tribute to her new-born girl - Beyoncé made the ladylike waist-cincher her own and proved once again you don’t have to be Hollywood rail thin to work one of Victoria’s frocks.
Other new devotees of the brand have so far this year included Cameron Diaz, who worked a full length VB sheath at Vanity Fair’s Oscars party, and younger starlets including Michelle Williams and Olivia Palermo who have taken a shine to Beckham’s lower price point line, Victoria by Victoria Beckham.
Needless to say we will be following both Beyoncé’s baby step style choices and Vicky B’s red carpet tally with bated breath...
