The First Photo of Beyoncé’s Twins Is Here

Beyoncé Knowles, beloved queen of the late-night surprise social media reveal (Lemonade, anyone?), has done it again: this time revealing the birth date, names, and first photo of her twins, all in one go. The new babies, Rumi and Sir Carter, are shown cradled in the superstar’s arms as she strikes a Botticelli-esque pose in an open, flouncy robe and sea-foam–colored veil; behind her, a box hedge frames a triumphant flower arch (strikingly similar to the one from her pregnancy announcement) and what appears to be an open horizon at what could very well be the singer’s rumored rented Malibu estate.

The Instagram post, which went up a little after 1:00 a.m. EST, had reached nearly 5 million likes in the five hours that followed. Much could (and will) be made of the fact that in these photos—versus the various shots from her pregnancy announcement back in February—Beyoncé’s face is effectively unveiled by the positioning of her headpiece, or that her robe exposes a bit of taut-looking tummy(a mere month after giving birth), or her Birth of Venus pose, or that she is the latest among celebrities taking their family’s privacy (and publicity strategy) into their own hands by strategically metering out where and when they will be seen. But the most important part is undoubtedly that mother and babies are happy, well, and already killing the social media game. And honestly, would we have expected any less?

H&M designer collaborations are always highly anticipated. There was Balmain, Kenzo, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander Wang, Versace — the list goes on. If you were wondering who was next to step up to the plate, well, that would be — wait for it — Erdem! You know, the London-based fashion house that’s dressed everyone from Keira Knightley to Kate Middleton herself. Erdem is joining forces with H&M to launch a collection for women, and for the first time, a collection for men too (grab your SO for this one!). The pieces will be in select stores and online on Nov. 22. Although that is still, unfortunately, months away, we can already imagine the pretty, romantic dresses and tops that’ll be offered. And if you really want a good indication of what’s to come, check out the movie below, created by film visionary Baz Luhrmann.
