Blue Ivy Carter is overdosed with a certain charisma that makes social media just fall in love with her every time they see her.

During the 2018 Grammy Awards for example, Blue, the eldest daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s three children, sent Twitter into a tizzy when she was captured on camera admonishing her mother and father not to clap during an onstage singer’s speech.

She put her cuteness into overdrive once again during Saturday’s 2nd Annual Wearable Art Gala Auction in Beverly Hills, California. She had already won the throngs over with her matching gold dress with mother Queen Bey.

The soiree was hosted by Blue Ivy’s grandmother, Tina Knowles Lawson, and step-dad, actor Richard Lawson (Poltergeist). Beyoncé was honored for her humanitarian work.

Despite all that star power, Blue Ivy dominated the scene. She tried to bid $19K on a pricey art auction that was hosted by television personality Star Jones.

In a video clip, which quickly went viral, Blue is seen raising her paddle to bid on a piece of art while her father, Hov, tries to wrench the paddle away from his daughter as the audience howls.

Jones tried to explain to Blue what was going on amid the giggling crowd of bidders.

“Her mother and father have been talking about how you gather art and that is a big deal for African Americans. Listen, you know Ms. Tina told me all of this. Why you think I’m up here talking about it?” she said.

When Twitter got wind of adorable Blue Ivy’s antics, they swooned over her.

Take a look at some of the responses below.
