Jay Z and Beyoncé Went as Royalty for Halloween

No jheri curls in these Coming to America costumes.

Published November 1, 2015

Jay Z and Beyoncé are basically the closest thing America has to royalty, so it's no surprise they went as members of the royal family from Coming to America for Halloween. In fact, the look is so appropriate for the power couple, we'd hardly call it a costume.

As Eddie Murphy's character Prince Akeem, Jay's outfit was spot-on, down to the dead mammal on his shoulder. Bey's look was more interpretive: a colorful belted dress with chunky accessories and a cheetah-printed head wrap partially covering her blonde locks (see the full look below). Perhaps she was going for Queen Aoleon, but that would be a little odd for her to dress as Jay's character's mother. We'll just assume she's dressed Lisa, once they went back to Zamunda.

Earlier in the week, Bey stopped by Ciara's birthday-slash-Halloween bash dressed as Storm from X-Men, complete with platinum wig and ice-grey color contacts. From superhero to African queen, she really is sticking with a theme this year.
