While some celebrities are fighting to keep their kids out of the spotlight, Beyonce and Jay Z are taking a totally different route—we’ll show you pictures of Blue Ivy, but you’ll only see them on our terms. Enter: Beyonce‘s Tumblr.
What we have here is a collection of beautifully curated images of The Carter Family—from backstage in Brooklyn to the white sands of the Caribbean—but no pictures of Blue Ivy Carter’s face. You’ve got her feet, you’ve got her hands, you’ve got her hair and her shadows – but no direct photos of (arguably) the most famous celebrity offspring in the world.
Lucky for all of us, the Blue Ivy photos are still incredible. But one question remains—how’d the Carter’s on-staff photographer get the coolest job in the world? Click through to the gallery to see the Blue Ivy pics for yourself.
Do you think Blue Ivy is the most famous celebrity baby? Who’s giving her a run for her money? Share in the comments or tweet us @OKMagazine.
