Beyonce held a 70s-themed fancy dress party to celebrate her 35th birthday at the weekend.
Stars including her husband Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys, Chance The Rapper, Janelle Monae, Usher, Puff Daddy and Swizz Beatz got dressed up to keep in the theme of honouring influential 1970s TV show Soul Train.
The night marked a Destiny’s Child reunion with Beyonce’s former bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams in attendance.

It also saw a rapprochement between Jay Z and Beyonce’s younger sister Solange Knowles, who famously attacked Jay in apparent fury at his alleged affair documented on Beyonce’s album ‘Lemonade’.
Chance The Rapper attended hours after embarrassing Beyonce on stage at Made In America festival in Philadelphia. Chance led the crowd in a singalong of ‘Happy Birthday’, with cameras showing a clearly embarrassed Beyonce watching on.
There was no sign of former US president Bill Clinton, who had also joined Beyonce and Jay Z at the festival alongside the couple’s friends, basketball star Carmelo Anthony and his TV presenter wife La La Anthony.
Hours after the party, Beyonce cancelled her show at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium. Due to have taken place tonight (September 7), the gig was cancelled under doctor’s orders with Beyonce told to rest her voice. Her ‘Formation’ tour now resumes on Saturday.
