Beyonce literally shuts down New York city with her first post-baby appearance. Okay, I’m being dramatic, but she shut it down…emotionally. For me, that is.
Beyonce finally stepped out in public for the first time since given birth, debuting her post-baby body and she looks ah-mah-zing!
Jay-Z was set to perform at Carnegie Hall for a series of benefit concerts to raise money for the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation, obviously Beyonce could not sit at home during that.
Posting photos on her official website, Beyonce turned her first night out into something of an unofficial photoshoot. She hit the town in a figure hugging red Alice Temperly gown (the same designer beloved by Kate Middleton), four-inch sparkly embellished Christian Louboutin heels, a gold Alexander McQueen clutch and jewelry by Ofira & Lorrain Schwartz.
After the show, Beyonce and Jay hit up his nightclub 40/40 and when a reporter asked her how the show was she said, “it was amazing.” Uh duh, first of all, Jay-Z is always amazing, and even if he wasn’t, what do you think Beyonce would say, “ehh, not his best night, also the acoustics were weird during the second half.”
The couple hung out with Nas and Santigold while Jay-z sipped on champagne and munched on celery. Wait, celery? Is that a rich persons snack? I’m unfamiliar.
As for Jay-Z’s show…he took to the stage in a tuxedo and was backed by a full orchestra that included Roots drummer ?uestlove. However, I’m sure everyone was expecting him to carry their baby Blue Ivy Carter onto the stage at some point, possibly making a live cameo on the track, “Glory.”
