"Happy Birthday, @Beyonce! We hope you enjoyed this custom geode cake at your party last night!"

In honour of Beyoncé's 36th birthday, 18 members of the singer's inner circle have re-created her iconic look from the "Formation" video in a photo shoot.

So it's probably no surprise that her birthday cake was nothing short of an extravaganza!

Bey's Destiny's Child crew Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, her mother Tina Lawson, daughter Blue Ivy and mother-in-law Gloria Carter (who recently came out on her son Jay-Z's new album 4:44) were among the women who donned her braids, hat and statement necklace from the "Formation" video on her album Lemonade.

And Jay Z previously revealed he delayed his tour until later in the year so he could spend quality time with his family without the pressures of being on the road. She also sang the national anthem at Barack Obama's 2013 inauguration.

Michelle Obama and Beyonce also teamed up in 2011 for the former's "Let's Move" campaign, whose primary objective is to fight childhood obesity.

The appearance of the former first lady in particular has prompted glee on social media. She wrote, "Join us in supporting the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts #BEYGOODHOUSTON". "Except I can't sing, I can't dance".

Alongside this, the mum-of-three has confirmed she'll be taking part in a star-studded telethon on September 12 to help raise more cash for those affected.

"We have teamed up with Bread of Life, Greater Houston Community Foundation, and Texas Southern University, all of whom have been working with the displaced from the start of Hurricane Harvey's landfall".
