Tika Sumpter In Alice + Olivia – 16th Annual ACE Awards

Tika Sumpter joined Julianne Moore on the red carpet for the 16th Annual ACE Awards, held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City last night.

The ‘Sparkle’ star wore a grand Alice + Olivia Fall 2012 ball-gown.

Her sleeveless black-and-white gown with a graphic faux foil-print ensured she was the belle-of-the-ball.

Tika styled her look with a white clutch, a retro-inspired ponytail, kohl-rimmed eyes and a bold red lip colour.

The only thing missing to perfect this look was the black patent waist cinching leather belt as worn by the model on in the look book picture.

Do you agree?

    not feeling this one and she needs to tone down the makeup a bit

    Love this look, Tika looks beautiful. I don’t mind the dress without the belt but having the belt would have been even better. A coloured clutch would have been great here as well. So glad to see the dress on the red carpet though, it was a favourite from this collection

    I love this dress in the lookbook and am so glad to see it worn! Lovely dress, but it DID need a belt. Otherwise, her simple styling was good.

    Def. missing a belt to break up the monotony of the print and define the waist a bit more.

      As for the pop of colour (via a clutch), I don’t think it’s needed here at all as her makeup is so strong making her face the focal point and the pop of colour via bright lippie is sufficient, the coloured clutch would be competing and taking the focus away from her face. I’d go with the simple black clutch.

    Needs the belt and pop of color in the bag.

    Beautiful dress, but I’m missing the belt.

    The white clutch feels too washed out against her dress, really wish she had opted for a colorful clutch!

    Like it. Though i wish that the dress’s length was shorter.

    I miss the belt. The gown look shapeless.
