“Black don’t crack” is ringing true once again with these new pictures of Shari Headley and Vanessa Bell Calloway. Both ladies starred in 1989’s classic film Coming to America as Lisa McDowell and princess Imani Izzi, respectively, and recently recreated their roles for a Halloween-themed episode of the Steve Harvey Show.
The women, age 52 and 59, look as incredibly amazing as they did nearly 30 years ago, rocking the same seminal outfits that captivated viewers back then and still mesmerizes fans today. Calloway’s iconic dress was said to be the inspiration behind Beyonce’s head-turning 2015 MET Gala gown that had everyone talking. It also remains a Halloween favorite among countless fans with many recreating the look with their own costumes. Last year, Beyonce and Jay Z wore Coming to America get-ups with Blue Ivy dressed as a little Princess Imani. Really. It was adorable as hell, guys.
It’s the second time Princess Imani has shown up and showed out this year. Back in April, Calloway celebrated Coming to America’s 28th anniversary by posing in a variation of the dress, proving that she’s still got it and will probably never lose it.
I’m not sure when Steve Harvey’s Coming to America episode airs, but for once, I’ll be watching!
