Popular actress, Vanessa Calloway, and her two daughters melt hearts in a social media post celebrating mother's day—they were dressed to kill in black regal dresses.


The Calloway women are indeed a gorgeous trio. This was made evident by a photo 30-year-old Ashley Calloway posted on her Instagram page in honor of Mother's Day. The gorgeous photo featured Ashley, her mom, Vanessa, and her sister, Alexandra, dressed in stunning black regal dresses.

The dresses varied in design; Ashley's sported a plunging neckline with white spots scattered all over it, Alexandra's was shorter than both her mom's and Ashley's with a thigh split and a revealing neckline.

Vanessa's gown was armless, and it sported ruffles from the waist down. For accessories, the trio kept things simple with stylish earrings, bracelets, and rings. Ashley captioned the post:


"Happy Mother's Day to my Queen VBC and my beautiful grandmothers Beverly and Jeanie! I love you all SO much!"


The pictures attracted several positive comments from fans who couldn't get enough of the gorgeous trio. Many likened them to "royalty" while others gushed about how beautiful they looked. "That's just too much beauty in one picture," a fan wrote with a lot of flame emojis.

The Calloways own a block of commercial real estate smack dab in the middle of Leimert Park. They have six storefronts, with the one known as Regency West being a staple in the community.

Vanessa will be reprising her role as "Imani Izzi" in the upcoming sequel "Coming 2 America."


The Regency West is an event space that has been in existence for more than 40 years. It caters to comedy shows, birthday parties, weddings, and several other events.

Ashley helps her father manage the Regency West as the general manager and owner. She reportedly began working at the Regency when she was around 12 years old, and now she's fully invested in the family business.


The Regency West is reportedly one of the last remaining historical black-owned venues in south Los Angeles—a fact Ashley is proud of and promises to protect. Ashley's mom, Vanessa, is a famous actress whose career spans the stage, screen, and television.

She has been nominated eight times for the NAACP Image Award. She received the NAACP Theater Award for Best Actress for her role as "Zora Neale Hurston" in "Letters From Zora."


Vanessa is best known for her roles in the comedy classic, "Coming to America." According to Variety, Vanessa will be reprising her role as "Imani Izzi" in the upcoming sequel "Coming 2 America."

Her other film credits include "South Side," "What's Love Got to Do with," "Biker Boyz," "Love Don't Cost A Thing," among others. Vanessa is currently married to Tony Calloway. The pair tied the knot on September 3, 1988.
