If Beyoncé - the woman who encouraged us all to love our Bootylicious bodies, proudly told the world she 'woke up like this', channels a stage persona called Sasha Fierce and has songs like 'Diva', 'Feelin' Myself' and 'Run The World' - was the primary female role model in your house every day, you would hope to take on board some of her advice when it comes to confidence, independence and self-worth.

And, it seems like nine-year-old Blue Ivy Carter has indeed taken these valuable lessons from her mother.

The eldest daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z already has a Grammy nomination to her name, an NAACP image award, songwriting credits on both of her parents' albums and now she's starred alongside her mother in the star's latest Ivy Park X Adidas campaign.

Over the past few days, the Destiny's Child alum has been teasing the latest winter drop of her athleisure line, aptly called 'Icy Park', in which she stars alongside model Hailey Bieber, songwriter Kaash Page and rapper Gucci Mane.

However, a quick glimpse at a new video of the campaign and you'll spot Blue Ivy dressed in the latest collection, which drops on February 19.

Proud mother and grandmother Tina Knowles-Lawson shared clips of the campaign which features Blue dancing and posing in her 'Icy Park' get-up, before revealing that the child was not initially cast to be part of the shoot.

'She inserted herself into this shoot,' Knowles-Lawson explained on Instagram. 'No, she was not supposed to be in it! She was just hanging out and got dressed and I guess she said "I'm not gonna tell you what I could do I’m gonna show you."

'I love that aggressive spirit My Blue Blue!'

Well, Tina, so do we. And thank you to Blue Ivy for teaching us the way... our colleagues better watch out in our next Zoom meeting, that's for sure.
