Happy birthday, Blue Ivy Carter! Can y'all believe our favorite little style icon is already 8 years old? It's wild to imagine that eight years ago, music duo Beyoncé and Jay-Z gave the world another star!
In celebration of her birthday, here are 16 times Blue Ivy proved to us that she was always a style goddess in the making and that she's really just getting started:
1.We started the day with her grandfather Mathew Knowles sharing this sweet photo of Blue. A shirt with a matching backdrop? And that hair flip? Yaaass:
2.At The Lion King premiere, Blue made a mighty roar and showed us that she is an icon in the making:
3.Y'all thought I was playing? Nope, Blue serves us face AND energy in EVERY PHOTO:
4.At the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, I knew we were dealing with a queen when she showed out in this asymmetrical white blouse:
5.At the Wearable Art gala, she confirmed that she was the lady in gold (with a helmet to match):
6.Do y'all remember at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards when Blue put all the other kids (and half the adults) to sartorial shame?

8.When Blue mastered mommy-and-me florals better than your faves >>>
9.Even in Gucci, Blue gave us range. Depth. DYNAMIC WORK:
10.At an NBA All-Star Game? No problem — she's still effortless in a black moto jacket:
11.Like, who else could pull off a taffeta skirt in a casual yet chic way like this?
12.The CFDA Awards should have been dedicated to our style kween — black feathers AND a satin blazer? Teach us:

14.She taught us casual, cool, and collected. But made it fly and blue:
15.Embellished jean jackets never looked so cool:
16.And we know that for every event, she's going to serve us this level of dedication, flair, and fabulousness. All levels of black girl magic:
