New Year's Eve seems like a world away now that we're swigging green juices and tucked up in our onesies by 10am (man the last 15 days have dragged), but Beyonce is giving us all a reminder of the glitz, glam, fun and frivolity of the 31st December with photos from her I Am Beyonce Tumblr. By now we've come to expect a certain level of access from the singer who regularly shares touching snaps of her daughter Blue Ivy, as well as romantic moments with her hubby Jay-Z on exotic holidays. However, these party pics reveal what it's really like when Bey lets her hair down.
Wearing a black and gold Versace dress, the 32-year-old hosted a New Year's Eve soiree with rapper Jay in the the most bling of settings, the Versace mansion in Miami. The late designer Gianni Versace first acquired the 1930 beachfront property for $3million (£1.88 million) in 1992 and spent $33 million (£21.2 million) on its renovation. It was recently bought by the VM South Beach LLC who plan to transform the location into a hotel, but not before the music industry's hottest power couple had the chance to see in 2014 there in style among alongside friends and family.
Bey and Jay (who looked seriously dapper in a blue dinner jacket and bow tie) were joined by Bey's Destiny's Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland for the evening, as well as Victoria's Secret models Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn and Joan Smalls who co-starred in her 'Yonce' music video. Little Blue Ivy also made an appearance in a pair of sparkly silver Mary Janes although we're not sure if the toddler quite made it to midnight.
Once their baby was safely tucked up in bed, it was time for Mr and Mrs Carter to hit the dancefloor, but what about the soundtrack? Naturally, just like the rest of us mere mortals, when Beyonce gets her groove on she dances to Beyonce. The star was filmed throwing some shapes to her new tracks including 'Yonce' and 'Flawless - although perhaps more skilfully than us.
The night didn't end early, oh no no no. After the couple called time on their Versace bash they hopped on a scooter and headed for P Diddy's all-nighter. The 'Bad Boy For Life' rapper threw a CIROC The New Year 2014 party at his private Miami estate, which was attended by Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton, Spike Lee, Jeremy Piven, Dennis Rodman and Macy Gray. Drake got the party started on the decks and revellers kept going until 7am by which point Diddy did a Hugh Hefner and changed into a pair of pyjamas. That man sure knows how to live.
