Blue Ivy Carter turned 8 on Tuesday and family, friends, and fans took to social media to wish the oldest of Beyonce and Jay Z’s kids a Happy Birthday.
But it was Blue’s stylist who won the day! Manuel Mendez posted a photo of Bey’s mini me rocking braids, and a white Givenchy dress throwing up the deuces as she sits in one of her ballet stretches.
“Seeing you grow has been like watching the Blue skies past by, so beautiful.—Manuel A. Mendez *HAPPY 8th BIRTHDAY! *I LOVE YOU”
I’m so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin’)
Mendez recently shared how he went from being Beyonce’s personal assistant to Blue’s stylist.
“Years later, when Blue arrived to this world, I wanted to make sure to take care of both; Therefore I took the initiative of starting to buy her baby clothes like if she was my niece,” he shared with BELatina.
“Blue’s mom liked my style of work and organically I became her stylist,” said Manu, honored that the singer trusted him with her baby. “Now Beyoncé has two other babies [Rumi and Sir] and I’m evenly excited to help her curate their wardrobe.”
