Ciara and husband and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson pulled out complimentary silk suits on October 31 in honor of longtime friends Beyoncé and Jay-Z. The couple styled themselves after Bey and Jay’s iconic Dries van Noten look in the artists’ collaborative APES**T music video.

The only alteration the couple seem to have made was the portrait on the wall behind them. In the music video the portrait is of Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa, but in Ciara and Wilson’s recreation the portrait is of the Obama family. In an Instagram post, she expressed “From the Wilsons to the Carters to the Obamas… Much Love & Respect. We goin Ape $#!% #HappyHalloween.”



APES**T was filmed in the Louvre in Paris and produced by Pharrell Williams. The scene with the $830 million Mona Lisa portrait has become a part of one of the most memorable music scenes in history. The married couple’s 13th single together has garnered fair success, acquiring over 70,000 sales and being declared the 24th best song of the year by Rolling Stone in 2018.
