Jay Z and Beyoncé arrived in the Hamptons in New York via private plane on Saturday, just in time for the Memorial Day holiday. Beyoncé showed off her brand-new superlong braids while Jay Z stayed patriotic in a shirt emblazoned with the American flag. The couple's Hamptons vacation came with an extra dose of newsiness once it became clear that they were not planning to attend the wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West; it had long been reported that Jay would be acting as Kanye's best man at the ceremony, but he and his wife were nowhere to be found when the nuptials went down in Florence, Italy. Despite missing the wedding, Beyoncé sent her love to the newlyweds in an Instagram photo she shared from bed that day, writing, "Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family."
