Two of Black Hollywood’s most beloved actresses both celebrated milestone birthdays over the weekend. Tracee Ellis Ross and Gabrielle Union turned 50 on October 29 and avoided combining Halloween into their festivities.

Ross hosted an intimate birthday dinner Saturday night that wasn’t a costume party but turned into one when Kim Kardashian showed up dressed like Mystique from X-Men, Entertainment Tonight reported. Kardashian posted a selfie to her Instagram Story, posing alongside Ross who looked stunning in her cherry red gown paired with a matching off-the-shoulder jacket and jewels.

“That time I showed up to a birthday dinner in full costume when it wasn’t a costume party!” Kardashian captioned her post. “Happy Birthday to the most beautiful kind soul @traceeellisross.”

Ross also took to Instagram to show off her three birthday looks that celebrated the Black-Ish star on her milestone birthday.

“BIRTHDAY LOOK no. 1,” she captioned her first post.
