What does one wear to the White House for Michelle Obama’s 50th Birthday bash? If you’re Beyoncé, the answer to that question is a super-sexy, super-short mini that looks like a tour outfit — not an outfit you’d expect to see at the FLOTUS’s fête.

The singer selected a heavily embellished Randi Rahm dress (featuring possibly one of the shortest hemlines we’ve seen) covered in beads and sequins. She teamed the jaw-dropping design with statement earrings, a wrist full of Lorraine Schwartz bangles and simple nude pumps. Her hair and makeup were equally fierce — a glossy hot-pink lip, dramatic smoky eye and center-parted mega waves. (FYI: The entire look has a 62% “Love It” rating from PEOPLE readers.)

Even Blue Ivy got dressed up in a full-skirted dress for the party and bonded with the Obamas’ dog. (See the adorable snap here.) Bey, who also brought her mom along for the festivities, took the stage to perform a mini concert for the 500 guests in attendance, including Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Janelle Monáe, Mary J. Blige, Angela Bassett, Samuel L. Jackson and more.

Hudson followed Beyoncé’s style lead and also wore a mini dress to the affair, sharing the below photo of her and fiancé David Otunga on Instagram.

People why don’t you stop touching up pix. The other sites didn’t photoshop most of her thighs out of the picture!

Not appropriate B! I know your changing things up but this is not a positive move. I have to sadly give you zero stars for this.

She looks like she is going to eat your soul.

WOW!! How about showing some class with our FLOTUS?! no need to get so close to showing everything you have.

…because it always has to be about her.

A confident woman does not need to dress this way, especially at an even honoring or celebrating someone else.

Classless just like the Obama family. Hopefully she sucked the life out of everyone there too…

come on Beyonce on

This does not bode well for a nation in crisis, and it doesn’t help us take the Obamas seriously. Beyonce put herself first in this situation. She seems to be addicted to sex or something these days. Sex is fine, but didn’t Mama teach you the basics, something along the lines of “no stripper shoes at funerals”, if she is not bright enough to understand an official function?
