Beyoncé Knowles went out in NYC last night to watch her husband Jay-Z's performance at Carnegie Hall. It was Beyoncé's first public appearance since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter exactly one month ago. She wore a tight, rust-colored dress from the Alice by Temperley line, paired with Christian Louboutin heels, bright blue nail polish, and a huge sparkling ring in the same hue as her daughter's name for the occasion. Beyoncé released the first pictures on her website and was also photographed leaving the venue with a big smile on her face at the end of the evening.
Baby Blue stayed home, but her presence was noted while Jay was onstage — he performed his track "Glory," which features her infant noises from when she was only 1-day-old. Afterwards, Jay noted on stage that he wasn't sure he was going to make it through the song without getting emotional. Beyoncé was a few minutes behind Jay-Z as they headed off to celebrate his show at his newly reopened 40/40 Club. As she headed inside, Beyoncé spoke about Jay-Z's return to the stage, saying, "It was amazing."
