The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, especially in the Knowles-Carter family.
Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mother, recently revealed that her 5-year-old granddaughter, Rumi Carter, is already a fashionista.
“Rumi loves fashion. She picks out her own clothes,” Lawson, 68, told Oprah Daily.
“We recently went to Disneyland, and she put on her Mickey Mouse shorts. Then she wanted to put on a sparkly printed top which had the same colors. It actually looked really cute.”
But Rumi’s older sister Blue Ivy, 10, wasn’t so sure.
“Blue was like, ‘My mom would be mad because she’s doing too much,’” Lawson recalled. “And Rumi said, ‘This is my style.’ She’s 5. I was impressed.”
According to Lawson, Rumi seems to be cut from the same cloth as her stylish aunt, Solange.
“She wore outrageous stuff, but she has an amazing sense of style,” Knowles said. “So you let them do their own thing. You can’t say, ‘No, this doesn’t go with this or that.’”
Fans can often see Blue, Rumi and her twin brother, Sir Carter, dazzled in fly ‘fits for their mother’s Adidas x Ivy Park campaigns; as the faces of her Ivy Park Kids line, they’ve posed in her Halls of Ivy, Icy Park and Ivy Park Rodeo campaigns.
And the Carter kids aren’t just modeling their mom’s clothes — they’re helping her design them, too.
“They have definite determination about what they like and what they don’t like,” Knowles told the outlet.
“When Beyoncé’s doing the first samples, they get them, and some things they love, and some things you can tell are not their favorite. Kids like things that are comfortable. They don’t want anything that’s scratchy or too tight or high around the neck. So they absolutely give input on the brand. And they wear it — I mean, they are always in Ivy Park.”
