Jay-Z & Beyoncé channel ‘Coming to America’ for Halloween



African-American stars love channeling ‘Coming to America’ whenever they get a chance to dress up. Remember when Snoop Dogg‘s son had it as his 18th birthday party theme, or when Alicia Keys threw a Coming to America birthday bash for Swizz Beatz?

Last night, on Halloween, rapper Jay-Z dressed up as ‘Prince Akeem’, the lead role played by Eddie Murphy in the now classic movie. Akeem is heir to the throne in the mythical wealthy African nation of ‘Zamunda’

Beyoncé wore an ankara outfit by DemestiksNewYork with a leopard print belt, scarf and beads. We can’t quite tell what character she’s dressed up as though…

Either ways, they look cute! Here’s the photo:

    She’s dressed as a Rose Bearer. Other pictures show her carrying a bowl of roses.

    Like Bogie Chic said, she’s dressed as a Rose Bearer and Blue was dressed as the Princess
