In honour of Beyoncé’s 36th birthday, 18 of the singer’s inner circle have recreated her iconic look from the “Formation” video in a photo shoot. The images were posted on the star’s official website beyonce.com, with the caption: “Happy Birthday Beyoncé from your family and friends.”
Michelle Obama, former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland, tennis champion Serena Williams, and Hollywood stars Halle Berry and Bianca Lawson were featured. Beyoncé’s mum Tina Knowles and grandmother Hattie White, Jay-Z’s mum Gloria Carter, and the couple’s five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy were also among those photographed.
The photoshoot is also aimed at encouraging fans to donate to relief efforts for people affected by Hurricane Harvey in the singer’s hometown of Houston, with the hashtag #BEYGOODHOUSTON.
The appearance of the former First Lady, in particular, has prompted glee on social media.
