Eddie Murphy and 'Coming 2 America' Costume Designer Ruth Carter on Crafting the Look of Zamunda

“Coming 2 America” the long-awaited sequel might have just been released, but star Eddie Murphy already wants a third film and he wants costume designer Ruth E. Carter to return. Carter and Murphy have collaborated on numerous projects including, “Dr. Dolittle 2,” “I Spy” and “Dolemite is my Name.”

No stranger to crafting looks that tell a story of Black royalty – Carter designed the costumes for “Black Panther” and made history when she became the first Black woman to win an Oscar for costume design – she put Murphy’s king in silks and velvet. The two sat down for Variety’s “Dream Teams” sequel to discuss their latest collaboration.
