Bey­once’s Power of Two

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE - ANNE MARIE SCAN­LON

Around 20 or so years ago, the de­signer ac­ces­sory of the day was a lovely lit­tle baby. Jerry Hall was well known for bring­ing a lit­tle baldy gur­gler to so­cial events. Plus ca change. But these days, you are no­body un­less you have twins, which are the sta­tus sym­bol du jour. The Clooneys have a set and now Bey and Jay have a duo of their own — and in true Sleb Style, they’re keep­ing the names and gen­der un­der wraps.

If the Carter Twins fol­low in older sis­ter Blue Ivy’s (de­signer-shod) foot­steps, we can say for sure that their nurs­ery will be Bling-tas­tic. For her third birth­day, Blue Ivy al­legedly got a $80,000 di­a­mond-en­crusted Bar­bie. (And you thought the boxed ver­sions in the shops were over­priced!) No doubt the twins’ rat­tles will con­tain real gem­stones and their mo­biles be plated with gold. While we sneer at the vul­gar­ity and ex­cess, we all se­cretly covet Blue Ivy’s de­signer duds. That nasty-ass Bar­bie she can keep.
