Beyoncé Knowles went out in NYC last night to watch her husband Jay-Z's performance at Carnegie Hall. It was Beyoncé's first public appearance since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter exactly one month ago. She wore a tight dress from the Alice by Temperley line, paired with Christian Louboutin heels, bright blue nail polish, and a huge sparkling ring in the same hue as her daughter's name for the occasion. Beyoncé released the first pictures on her website and was also photographed leaving the venue with a big smile on her face at the end of the evening.
Baby Blue stayed home, but her presence was noted while Jay was onstage — he performed his track "Glory," which features her infant noises from when she was only one day old. Afterwards, Jay noted on stage that he wasn't sure he was going to make it through the song without getting emotional. Beyoncé was a few minutes behind Jay-Z as they headed off to celebrate his show at his newly reopened 40/40 Club. As she headed inside, Beyoncé spoke about Jay-Z's return to the stage, saying, "It was amazing."
