2016 MTV Video Music Awards: Blue Ivy Upstages Beyoncé’s Princess Moment

Blue Ivy Carter was so gracious as to accept Beyoncé‘s invitation to the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards and nailed the red carpet in a princess gown equipped WITH. A. TRAIN.

The mother-daughter duo made their way down the carpet together hand-in-hand on Sunday (Aug. 28, 2016). Beyoncé was festooned in feathers and sequins, as an angel on earth should be, while Blue wore a rose gold dress with a floor-length tutu trailing behind. It’s like when grandma would let you dress up in your dance outfit to a family picnic, except with a headband of diamonds that cost more than your childhood home.
