It’s a popular theme.
Flashback to September this year, mom-to-be Alicia Keys threw her husband Swizz Beatz a “Coming to America” 36th Birthday party. See the video HERE.
Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss’ October 2013 wedding to TV producer and reality TV star of Kandi’s Wedding Todd Tucker had ‘Coming to America‘-like dancers prelude their entrance. It’s an ode to the wedding scene at the end of the movie.
And just this Halloween, Bellyitch friend and DC socialite Diane Tackie dressed as actress Shari Headley’s character Lisa McDowell from that movie in a Coming to America themed Halloween party.
And I only just recently noticed that designer Jeremy Scott for Moschino featured the logo of the fictional McDowell’s burger joint, a humorous rip off of McDonald‘s in the movie, in his Fall 2014 line.
