Rule of thumb: If a movie is nominated for a Best Costume Design Academy Award, it’s definitely a good source of Halloween costume inspiration.

Beyoncé and Jay Z and even Blue Ivy clearly kept this in mind as they dressed up as characters from the 1988 comedy film Coming to America for Halloween on Saturday.

Beyoncé accessorized her brightly patterned minidress with a turban, wide belt, large beaded necklace and intricately beaded heels. Jay Z did a spot-on impression of Prince Akeem Joffer, Eddie Murphy‘s character in the film, complete with tuxedo, cap, leopard-print stole and single long braid. Meanwhile, Blue Ivy was dressed as one of Prince Akeem’s potential brides from the film.

The power couple held hands as they made their way to a private Halloween party in New York City. Just one week before, the “7/11” songstress dressed up as Storm from X-Men to celebrate Ciara‘s birthday party. She nailed the costume, even donning a white wig and creepy white contacts to complete the look.
