In honor of #BeyDay — Beyoncé's 36th birthday, that is — the singer's closest friends and family members pulled together a tribute that's all sorts of flawless.

Michelle Obama, Serena Williams, Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé's daughter, Blue Ivy, and even JAY-Z's grandma, Hattie White, donned the iconic wide-brimmed hat, statement necklace, and braids made famous in Bey's "Formation" video for a photo shoot.

Based on Twitter's collective reaction, Mrs. Obama's "Formation" recreation was the highlight of the shoot for many fans.

The picture gave people another opportunity to fawn over Beyoncé and FLOTUS' friendship.

As BuzzFeed pointed out, the pair go all the way back to 2008, when Bey performed at Barack Obama's inauguration.
