Beyoncé’s $1,200 Shoes Left the Designer Starstruck
Nicholas Kirkwood‘s shoes have appeared on the feet of some of the hottest names in entertainment, but he still got a little starstruck when he saw that Beyoncé wore his glitter satin sandals ($1,265 at mytheresa.com) to a dinner hosted by Michelle Obama. “I think Beyoncé looked great!” the designer told us at the opening of his Manhattan store. “How could you not be excited to see Beyoncé in your shoes?” While Beyoncé is a pro at walking in high heels, Kirkwood knows that every woman has their own heel height preference. “Heels can be quite wibbly wobbly,” he said. “Some of my clients can literally wear them all day. Some girls are so used to wearing heels it’s almost more painful to wear flats.”

Beyonce Honors Daughter Blue Ivy With Blue Nail Polish!
This manicure is dedicated to...Blue Ivy! Donning a bright blue dress for her first public appearance since she gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy a month ago may have been overkill, so instead, new mom Beyonce Knowles rocked a bright cobalt nail polish on her fingers in honor of her and Jay-Z's first-born daughter. In NYC Monday, the 30-year-old new mom sported Nails Inc. in Baker Street (out in March at Sephora) with her red-hot Alice by Temperley form-fitting dress at her hubby's Carnegie Hall concert after party at his newly reopened 40/40 Club. "Check out Beyonce's blue nails called Baker Street by Nails Inc. I love this color!" Lisa Logan, Beyonce's manicurist, tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. Since the hue isn't out yet you can try copying Bey's mani with L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail Polish in "Jet Set to Paris." ($5.99, lorealparis.com) The azure lacquer wasn't the only way the songstress was feeling blue -- she also donned a giant, sapphire sparkler on her pointer finger. It was a late night for Beyonce and her man, both of which stayed out until 4:30 a.m. "They were sitting on the top tier of same seating the entire night, just laughing, eating food -- the chef at the club is Jay-Z's personal chef as well and he sent out salads to them at 2:30 a.m.," a source tells Us Weekly. "Beyonce did have a martini at another point in the night, but she barely sipped it." "Towards the end of the night she was sitting with two of her friends and took out her phone," the source adds. "She was showing them pictures -- she was gushing and smiling and her friends were doing the same. She was very happy to be there, she had a lot of security."

Neither Knowles nor Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter) spoke to reporters. Knowles opted not to imbibe at the after-party, instead sucking on lemon wedges throughout most of the evening.
