Blue Ivy Carter's Most Spectacularly Expensive Outfits to Date
Beyoncé isn’t the only Carter with expensive taste—actually, far from it—both her husband, Jay Z, and 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, are known to step out in the sort of custom designs that make us regret ever taking out student loans/pursuing higher education/paying rent instead of shopping exclusively at Gucci … **Sigh**
Blue Ivy, in particular, has inspired an especially strong wave of envy in today’s young adults. Why couldn’t we be born to Beyoncé?! Everything would be so simple.
As we're sure you’ve noticed, or at least assumed, Blue’s clothes have a pretty high price point. The Kelly green Gucci dress Blue's wearing in the photo above, for instance, retails at $2,100 for children, and a whopping $26,000 for adults (net-a-porter.com).

Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking, for real.
Bey and Blue celebrated Mother's Day in a matching set of ruffled Dolce & Gabbana Hydrangea-print chiffon gowns. The adult sized version retails for $5,395 (neimanmarcus.com) as for Blue's mini D&G dress? A sleeveless style of the children's gown in the same print retails for $545 (neimanmarcus.com).

The Princess is Here...
Blue's tulle-tastic Mischka Aoki dress is worth $10,950 (!), while her bejeweled DOLLY shoes cost $565. If we take this out of couture terms, here's what it looks like: the then 4-year-old's gown (which we're assuming won't get a ton of wear, considering the train and all...) costs roughly the same as the average adult's yearly rent.
Twinning in floral Gucci
