Thirty three years after the original was released we are getting Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall back on the silver screen with Coming 2 America. I have to say I am really looking forward to this one. It is getting a lot of the old game back together, but also adding some new stars. So I am really disappointed that the film won’t get a big red carpet for a premiere, because I know that this cast would BRING it.Garcelle Beauvais had fallen off the map almost, but between being a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills and her return to the big screen in Coming 2 America you can bet that she is back. Now that being said I don’t know if the former would hurt her in being able to pull some major fashion moments from some of the top tier labels. That being said I was thinking about this major black Ese Azenabor Couture long sleeve gown which features an bold red and purple floral print, a thigh high split, and a dramatic train as the perfect moment for Garcelle to rock for a premiere for Coming 2 America. I wanted to bring a black designer to this look for Garcelle and regular readers will know that I am really keeping a close eye on Ese Azenabor as a rising talent. A major red carpet moment like this could really do big things for her career and I would have loved to see Garcelle bring it. Hair worn down straight and center parted, smokey eyes, deep red glossy lips, black leather Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Queen’ ankle strap sandals, and statement jewels from IVY New York including a pair of artistically created rubellite and white diamond pendant drop earrings, a red spinel and white diamond flower cocktail ring, and a vivid red spinel and white diamond ‘Gondola’ ring would definitely made sure this look oozed glamour from head to toe. Kiki Layne is one of the new faces in the cast of Coming 2 America and given her fashion chops shown since bursting onto the scene with If Beale Street Could Talk I have to say I am so mad that COVID stole a major red carpet moment from us. I was watching the Kim Jones debut at Fendi Spring 2021 Couture and the moment I saw this blue and grey halterneck gown which features a keyhole cutout, intricate embroidered lace, and a dramatic cape I imagined it on Kiki. I feel like had there actually been a big red carpet planned for this premiere that this is definitely something her stylists Wayman & Micah would be calling in as an option for her to bring to life. I have this gown burned into my mind for Kiki that I cannot think of anyone else I would want to see wearing it. It’s definitely one of those mentally reserved moments. An intricate asymmetric braided updo, defined eyes, deep berry burgundy lips, a pair of crystal embellished black suede Jimmy Choo ‘Emsy 100’ peep toe cross strap d’Orsay stiletto sandals, and Nikos Koulis ‘Yesterday’ collection white gold long drop earrings with white diamonds, black enamel and black onyx would have definitely made sure that his was a MAJOR fashion moment on a major red carpet.
Coming 2 America will hit Amazon Prime Video on March 5, 2021.
