Everything from the hair down to the pose brings back so many memories for so many people. Not to mention that Calloway just turned 59 this year, yet her body is puts most 25 year-olds to shame. Coming to America came out in 1988 and Calloway is still slaying 28 years later. Her melanin is definitely on fleek!

This brings a huge smile to my face because Coming to America is my favourite movie of all time. I’ve always thought she was absolutely gorgeous and I love that she is aging so gracefully
