Tika Sumpter joined co-star Jordin Sparks on the red carpet at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City last night, for the screening of their movie, ‘Sparkles’.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a Bill Blass Fall 2012 gown.

You have to be pretty confident and have an amazing figure to pull of this gold metal knit semi-sheer gown; luckily Tika has that in spades.

I have never been a fan of exposed underwear, but I have to give Tika credit for presenting this look with much elegance plus I have to question if the look would dazzle so much had it been fully-lined.

Super straight locks, glossy lips and natural nails completed her red carpet look.

How do you feel about the exposed panties?
