Tika Sumpter In Chado Ralph Rucci - Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Opening Night

You could spot Tika Sumpter from across the room, as she ignited the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s opening night at New York City’s Lincoln Center on Wednesday.

The actress gave us an intense jolt of colour in a shocking-pink Chado Ralph Rucci Spring 2013 dress.

The hot hue, which translated even more explosively than on the runway, was undoubtedly the main attraction. But Tika’s trendy Manolo Blahnik x Chado Ralph Rucci Spring 2013 heels commanded plenty of attention, too.

The clear PVC pumps, edged in metallic gold, are like the glass slipper for the modern fashion-girl, although I have a feeling they may be an acquired taste for some.

She completed the fluorescent flourish with a sleek, simple ponytail and without the glint of jewels—no sense competing with such a bold shade.
