Lupita Nyong'o and Danai Gurira Are True Queens at 'Coming to America' Themed Birthday Bash

You have to see their spot-on costumes!

We all know and love Eddie Murphy’s classic comedy, Coming to America, so we totally clapped our hands when Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira chose to pay homage to the movie in a major way.

The stars celebrated their birthdays with a Coming to Ameria-themed party and to say that it looked like a blast is an understatement! Nyong’o, whose 34th birthday was on March 1, and Gurira, who celebrated her 39th birthday on February 14, came together for a massive soiree while filming Black Panther in Atlanta.

Gurira stepped out as the “Queen to Be” in the golden gown and super high ponytail worn by Vanessa Bell Calloway’s character in the film while Nyong’o posed as one of the “ladies-in-waiting.”

The actresses were all smiles as they posed alongside each other and with friends for what looked like the birthday bash of the year!

We love #ComingToAmerica this much! Joint birthday party shenanigans with @danaigurira @kaluuya. #WakandansInZamunda
