New mom Beyonce has recoverd from giving birth -- and she's ready to show off her post-baby body! The singer looked gorgeous Monday night, making her first public appearance since welcoming baby Blue Ivy on Jan. 7. She stepped out to support her husband Jay-Z, who performed two shows at Carnegie Hall to benefit the United Way of New York City and his own Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
Only one month postpartum, Beyonce was a lady in red, wearing a curve-hugging long-sleeved Alice Temperly dress accessorized with an Alexander McQueen clutch and platform Christian Louboutin heels.
The singer, 30, has kept a low profile since she had the baby and had given no interviews and made no public appearances until Monday night -- except for releasing a statement after Etta James died on Jan. 20.
"This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time. I am so fortunate to have met such a queen. Her musical contributions will last a lifetime," Beyonce wrote on her website.
Now that Bey has stepped back into the limelight, it should only be a matter of time before she and newborn Blue start popping up around their New York City stomping grounds. And we can't wait to see the real first pictures of their bundle of joy. (As opposed to these fake-but-hilarious shots that pal 50 Cent posted on Twitter!)
