Blue Ivy, at the age of six-years-old, is already building her own art collection. The daughter of JAY-Z and Beyoncé attempted to bid at $19,000 on a piece of art during an auction at the second annual Wearable Art Gala. Beyoncé was being honored at the function for her humanitarian work, and so was Gloria Carter, JAY-Z's mother. In the posts below, you can see Blue and her mother wearing matching ensembles for the gala, as well as Blue attempting to bid $19,000 on a painting by the artist Sidney Poitier. (You can also catch JAY-Z trying to stop Blue from bidding more.)


Vanity Fair reports that Tyler Perry outbid Blue for the Poitier piece, taking the painting home for $20,000. Blue wasn't done though. Vanity Fair additionally reported that Blue Ivy cast another bid for Samuel Levi Jones piece for $10,000, winning the art. You can watch clips of the event below.
