Beyonce’s Power of Two
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.
