Some of those closest to Beyoncé are celebrating her 36th birthday on Monday by recreating the iconic look from her "Formation" video.

Serena Williams, Michelle Obama and Kelly Rowland are among those photographed with the hat and braids, as are Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles Lawson and mother-in-law Gloria Carter.

The images are on Beyoncé's website along with a link to the singer's ongoing efforts to help with the recovery in her hometown of Houston.
