Michelle Obama Dressed Up as One of Beyoncé's 'Lemonade' Alter Egos to Celebrate Her Birthday | 22 Words

Beyoncé is the undisputed queen of the world. Michelle Obama is the other undisputed queen of the world.

Yes, there is more than one queen.

So when Michelle Obama (along with a bunch of other celebrities) dressed up as Beyoncé from her "Formation" video, the world collectively gasped for a moment.

They totally nailed it.

Beyoncé was an icon long before the video for "Formation" reached the Internet.

But once it traveled into our eyes and ears, we were hooked. And Beyoncé's incredibly fierce look from the video — the wide-brimmed hat, dark lipstick, long braids, and elaborate neck jewels — became a symbol of women's strength and power.

Now, you can find it everywhere.
