Coming to America is making a fashionable comeback. The endlessly quotable, deeply hilarious 1988 comedy classic starring Eddie Murphy was the essential clash of cultures story, following a crown prince of a fictional wealthy African nation who decides to find romance in America. So it’s appropriate that for the Coming 2 America costumes, the sequel is looking to the costume designer of yet another fictional wealthy African nation.
Ruth E. Carter has been tapped to design the costumes for the Coming to America sequel, bringing with her the promise of lavish, Afrofuturistic designs and an Oscar award for designing just those kinds of costumes for Black Panther.
