Beyoncé conferred with the Humanitarian Award at the 2018 Wearable Art Gala

Meanwhile, Jay-Z's mom Gloria Carter received the Everyday People Award.

The family attended the gala on Saturday - dressing like royalty together - where Blue did some bidding on behalf of her star parents before the pop icon received a humanitarian award by her mother, Tina Knowles Lawson. "It's a privilege and a responsibility".

Vanity Fair reported that even the former First Lady Michelle Obama honoured the "Formation" singer via a televised message.

In the pictures, Blue Ivy looks delighted with her outfit as she poses in front of a mirror while her mum stands behind her.

Later in the night, there was an auction for some very pricey paintings. Blue Ivy Carter is proving once again she is a force to be reckoned with after coolly dropping a US$19,000 (RM74,356) bid for an art piece recently.

However, she didn't go home empty handed.

Jay-Z jokingly tried to curb the six-year-old's spending spree by wrestling the auction paddle from her, but he isn't fooling anyone. That $19,000 was a fifth of her allowance for the week and she needed a painting for her master suite. When she is outbid, Blue makes a second bid for $25,000 before Jay-Z can be seen trying to lower her paddle and reign in her spending.

"I try to keep my charitable work quiet because I feel like these things should come from the goodness of your heart and not from anything orchestrated as a campaign", she said.

The theme of the gala was "Waco to Wakada", inspired by Black Panther.

Blue Ivy managed to upstage Beyonce herself in an adorable gold dress and wig. The event-which took place at Los Angeles' Alexandria Ballrooms-was organised by Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles Lawson, and her step-dad, Richard Lawson.
