Michelle Obama, Adele and Serena Williams were among the famous faces that joined Beyonce in celebrating her 36th birthday.
The singer set up a website to showcase a series of photos of her friends and family dressed as her plantation owner character in the video Formation.
Among those that don the now iconic wide-brimmed black hat, off-the-shoulder top and ornate silver choker were Mrs Obama, Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy and her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, Mrs Obama has been a close friend of the singer for many years, and Beyonce performed at Barack Obama’s inauguration. The former first lady has frequently spoken of her admiration for the Texan songstress, and tweeted numerous tributes.
Serena Williams, who gave birth to her first child on Friday, also posed, as did Beyonce’s mother and mother-in-law.
Alongside the photos was a link to the singer’s BeyGOOD Houston initiative, which will help with long-term reconstruction and aid after Hurricane Harvey in her hometown by supplying cots, blankets and pillows, baby products, feminine products and wheelchairs in the wake of historic flooding.
Adele also joined in the celebrations, tweeting a happy birthday message to the mother of three.
