Tina Knowles Says Beyoncé’s Daughter Rumi, 5, ‘Loves Fashion’

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, especially with the Knowles-Carter family.

Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mother, recently revealed that her 5-year-old granddaughter, Rumi Carter, is already a fashionista.

“Rumi loves fashion. She chooses her own clothes,” Lawson, 68, told Oprah Daily.

“We recently went to Disneyland and she put on her Mickey Mouse shorts. Then she wanted to put on a sparkly printed top that had the same colors. It actually looked really cute.”

But Rumi’s older sister Blue Ivy, 10, wasn’t so sure.

“Blue was like, ‘My mom would be mad because she’s doing too much,’” Lawson recalls. ‘And Rumi said, ‘This is my style.’ She’s 5. I was impressed.”

According to Lawson, Rumi seems to be cut from the same cloth as her stylish Aunt Solange.

“She wore outrageous things, but she has a great sense of style,” Knowles said. “So you let them do their own thing. You can’t say, ‘No, this doesn’t fit with this or that.’”

Fans can often see Blue, Rumi and her twin brother, Sir Carter, dazzled by their mother’s Adidas x Ivy Park campaigns; as the faces of her Ivy Park Kids line, they have posed in her Halls of Ivy, Icy Park and Ivy Park Rodeo campaigns.

And the Carter kids don’t just model their mom’s clothes — they help her design them.

“They have a clear determination about what they like and what they don’t like,” Knowles told the outlet.

“When Beyoncé makes the first samples, they get them, and some things they love, and some things you can tell aren’t their favorite. Children like things that are comfortable. They don’t want anything scratchy or too tight or too high around the neck. So they definitely give input about the brand. And they wear it — I mean, they’re always in Ivy Park.”
