We've been so busy shopping for new swimsuits—with the help of a half-dozen of our fave gals of summer—that we've been neglecting our hair.
But then we caught this shot of Beyoncé out and about in N.Y.C. with a new ‘do, perfect for summer, and our hair was saved from the scissors. At least, for now.
Kudos to the new mom for wearing those braids in an unexpected yet seasonally smart way—a swirly updo that keeps things cool when the temps get hot. (Not that we have a problem with the way Bey wore her braids back in 2001, for a trip to Total Request Live.)
We also love the metallic flats, if not the gaily printed romper which, we understand, is from her own House of Dereon line. Not quite the best fit, but at least baby Blue Ivy Carter is a cute accessory.
