As the whole world knows by now,Sept. 4 is Beyonce Knowles-Carter‘s birthday. And to help her celebrate, a bunch of Bey’s famous friends (and daughter Blue Ivy), including former FLOTUS Michelle Obama, celebrated her 36th b-day by recreating one of the iconic looks from her “Formation” music video.
“Happy birthday Beyonce / From your family and friends,” read the message on her website.
What followed was nearly 18 images of women dressed in Queen Bey’s fierce outfit of an off-the-shoulder black top, extra wide-brimmed black hat covering the face, and elaborate silver chokers. Completing the look, of course, were two long black braids.
Besides wishing her a happy birthday, the message on Bey’s website also urged everyone to support Houston relief efforts. Hurricane Harvey battered Beyonce’s hometown and surrounding areas when it made landfall on August 25. According to The New York Times, the storm has claimed the lives of at least 50 people in eight counties, and has caused billions of dollars in damages.
