Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ Look Recreated as Birthday Gift by Family and Friends
Beyoncé celebrated her recent birthday in a high fashion, with many celebrities and relatives sending their best wishes via social media. Among the special gifts were some of them recreating the look "Queen B" had for the music video "Formation."
Former Destiny's Child band mate Kelly Rowland, Michele Obama and Serena Williams are among the several big-name figures who donned a big-hat, big-necklace, double-braided look Beyoncé rocked on the said music video. Even her mom, Tina Knowles Lawson and Gloria Carter, mother of husband Jay-Z, joined into the action, with People reporting that the images also have a link for "BEYGOODHOUSTON" relief effort for Houston.
On the other hand, other celebs greeted Beyoncé in their own ways. Adele, "Telephone" collaborator Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and her father Mathew Knowles are some of those who sent their happy birthdays via Instagram.
Additionally, Jay-Z greets his first lady onstage during his performance in Philadelphia. Standing in front of the crowd at Budweiser's "Made In America" festival last Sunday, Shawn Carter gives a shout out to Beyoncé, who was in the crowd with daughter Blue Ivy, E! reported. He also leads the crowd into serenading the "Crazy in Love" singer with a "Happy Birthday".
The new mother of twins Rumi and Sir celebrated her 36th birthday last Monday, September 4th. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Beyoncé started her career with the girl-group Destiny's Child, with the multi-talented celebrity at the lead. Managed by her father, the R&B group rose to fame in the late 90's and is known as one of the best-selling girl groups of all time.
2003's "Dangerously in Love" is Beyoncé's first album as a solo artist and was met with critical acclaim winning five Grammy Awards. Her singles "Crazy in Love" featuring then-boyfriend Jay-Z and the Sean Paul accompanied "Baby Boy" from the said album got the top spots in most charts, including the Billboard Hot 100.
