Beyoncé, Our Fairy Godmother, Arrives With Blue Ivy For Her Big Night at the VMAs

Beyoncé shook our souls when she showed up to the MTV VMAs with her 4-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, on Sunday. The singer, who is nominated for 11 awards and was rumored to be performing during the show for weeks, popped up at Madison Square Garden looking like a her usual fierce self in a Francesco Scognamiglio feathered gown covered in crystals, while Blue wore a fluffy princess dress complete with wings; the mother-daughter duo also sported matching braids and walked the carpet with a posse of Lemonade stars, including her artists Chloe and Halle Bailey, model Winnie Harlow, and the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown. While MTV confirmed news of Beyoncé hitting the stage hours before the show — though most of us in the Beyhive had a feeling she would be gracing us with her presence — Blue Ivy's adorable guest appearance was one we didn't see coming.
