Blue Ivy Carter celebrates her 1st birthday today, and she will be doing so in style.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since pop icon Beyoncé and her rapper husband Jay-Z welcomed baby daughter Blue Ivy into their luxurious world.

Shortly after her birth, Jay-Z released the song “Glory,” dedicated to his first daughter.

Blue Ivy’s all-star parents also topped Forbes Magazine’s 2012 ‘Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples’ list.

Having already received a $1 million a year luxury nursery in the basement of the Barclays Center from her parents, Blue Ivy’s 1st birthday will no doubt be a big one, especially with friends and relatives that include:  Solange Knowles, Kanye West, Rihanna, and Kelly Rowland.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been careful to shield Blue Ivy from paparazzi in 2012, but we’ve put together a short slideshow of Blue Ivy’s first year.
