What a way to ring in your 50th!
Michelle Obama had quite the birthday bash this weekend, which included a few star-studded performances and the ultimate VIP guest list!
Though shrouded in secrecy, we know that more than 500 guests partied in the White House East Room Saturday night, and enjoyed finger foods and a dance fest that lasted until 3 am Sunday morning.
The birthday girl was serenaded by John Legend, Beyonce, who sang a few of her best hits including “To the Left,” and Stevie Wonder who performed his classic “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours.”
Beyonce even shared photos of her and first dog Sonny bonding before the big bash as well as pictures of daughter Blue Ivy petting the adorable first dog!
And though there was a strict “no cellphones or social media” policy, fellow guest Jennifer Hudson couldn’t help tweeting a photo of her and fiancé David Otunga after the party.
“We had such a good time with the 1st family in dc tonight!” she captioned the photo.
Former NBA star Magic Johnson also posted a photo of himself with wife Cookie and actor Samuel L. Jackson and his wife LaTanya outside the White House gates.
Because of the security surrounding the event, guests were not given a physical save-the-date card, but told to eat before they arrived and to wear comfortable shoes for dancing. When they got there, they were treated to a full bar.
Michelle was reportedly dressed in a flowing red blouse and matching pants and was joined by daughters Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, for the soirée.
It is unknown what the first lady received in terms of presents, but the president’s gift came a week early in the form of an extra week spent in Hawaii with gal pal Oprah Winfrey.
Though Oprah was unable to attend due to the SAG Awards, plenty of A-listers came out to celebrate Michelle including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Paul McCartney, Mary J. Blige, Al Roker, Gayle King, Gladys Knight, and Michael Jordan.
