Blue Ivy Reminds Us She’s Blue Ivy, Bids $80K+ at Charity Auction

At only 10, Blue Ivy Carter has achieved things most of us can only dream of. She’s won a Grammy Awardfronted global campaigns, and even became the youngest winner of a BET Award in 2020. Now, adding to the list of Blue-Ivy-only attainable feats is her bidding of $80K+ at the Wearable Art Gala Auction this past weekend.

In case you didn’t know, the Knowles-Carter family makes an effort to attend the Wearable Art Gala Auction every year, and this year was no exception. The event is held annually to benefit the WACO Theater Center’s projects. The center, located in the North Hollywood area of Los Angeles, was founded by Tina Knowles-Lawson and Richard Lawson. It’s a family affair!

Usually, it’s the family’s glamorous ‘fits that steal all the attention — but this year, that honor went to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s eldest child. (In true Blue Ivy fashion, might we add.) As captured by Abbott Elementary creator Quinta Brunson on Instagram, Blue Ivy Carter was doing a little bit more than just posing on the red carpet at this year’s event. The 10-year-old was actively outbidding some of the very famous attendees.

In the video shared by Quinta, which has since been reposted by Pop Crave on Twitter, we see auctioneer Keke Palmer and Blue Ivy’s very own grandma Tina Knowles-Lawson rendered speechless by her bidding skills.

Per TMZ, the item Blue Ivy was set on winning was a pair of Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings. In the clip, the earrings were going for $75K. After Keke calls for more bids, we see Blue Ivy does not hesitate to raise her paddle to bring the sum up to $80K. 

However, it wasn’t enough. TMZ also notes the item ultimately went to Mielle Organics’ founder Monique Rodriguez after reaching the six-figure range, $105K to be exact. Now, excuse me while I look at my bank account and cry.
