To celebrate pop star Beyoncé’s 36th birthday, former first lady Michelle Obama dressed up in what the singer donned in her “Formation” video — a Beyoncé song notoriously perceived as anti-police . . .
Obama wasn’t the only participant in the dress-up shoot: friends and colleagues of Beyoncé also donned the same outfit.
Some of those in the shoot included Beyoncé’s 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, former Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and tennis star Serena Williams.
