You know you've made it when the former first lady of the United States dresses up as you for your own birthday. 

Such was the case for Beyonce, who celebrated her 36th birthday on Sept. 4 by having 18 of her closest friends (among them Serena Williams, Kelly Roland, Michelle Williams, sister songwriters Chloe & Halle Bailey and, of course, Mrs. Michelle Obama) dress up in one of her most recognizable looks from the "Formation" video. 

The black-and-white portraits were posted to Beyonce.com over the weekend in a post titled simply, "Happy Birthday Beyonce." 

But it's not all a party. Also on Bey's website is an ongoing call to action for members of the Beyhive to support BeyGood, the superstar's philanthropic initiative, which is currently working on the ground in Houston to assist victims of the massive flood. Beyonce's team is working with Bread of Life, Greater Houston Community Foundation and Texas Southern University to help those displaced by Hurricane Harvey.
