Singer Ashanti radiated elegance on Wednesday, Nov. 18, after uploading a photo of herself in a purple two-piece ensemble consisting of a deep-cut bodysuit and a jacket with plush accents.
The “Coach Carter” star wore the outfit during her Veterans Day performance at the Hard Rock Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The look was enhanced by sheer black stockings, huge gold hoop earrings, purple sunglasses, and her signature smize. As for makeup, the singer decided to coordinate with her get-up by adding purple eye shadow with false lashes and a pale purple lip. She captioned the Nov. 18 post with a single purple heart emoji. Ashanti’s latest look enraptured many of her followers as the post racked up over 70,000 likes in just 24 hours.
“It’s the purple for me 😍😍😍.”
“Come through sis!! 🔥🔥👑.”
“Still killin it.”
“Purple Reign 💜💜💜.”
One fan wrote how the star’s outfit reminded them of Prince’s 1984 “Purple Rain” look, where he sported a sequined purple jacket in the movie as well as the album cover. “Giving purple rain vibes ☔️☔️😍😍😍,” the Instagram user wrote.
Ashanti has been sprinkling her followers’ timelines with purple ensembles over the past few months, including the tiny bikini she wore in honor of “Shantober,” a nickname Ashanti created by combining her name and October, the month she was born in.
During her seemingly never-ending birthday festivities in Antigua last month, the 40-year-old offered up a post of herself wearing a skimpy purple bikini complemented by gold accessories and a fuchsia-colored flower as she flaunted her toned abs and shapely legs. She captioned the Oct. 23 photo, which generated over 295,000 likes, “Yeah…. it’s still my birthday 🤣🎉🥳🎂♎️ #shantober 😩🤣 10/13.”
A month earlier, Ashanti was posing in front of a graffiti-covered roll-down door on a city street in a casual white crop top and purple short shorts, a matching bucket hat, and white sneakers. “A1… round the way,” the “Foolish” singer wrote as her caption for the Sept. 16 post.
