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.

    At 1st glance I thought she was standing on top of her shoes, not an attractive way to present your feet, so these shoes aren’t working for me, but overall she looks fabulous in this bold hue, love the sleek ponytail and no-jewellery styling, sweet and effortless.

    She looks DIVINE. Absolutely gorgeous. The PVC transparent shoes visually elonget her legs . I love the effect and the trend. I am totally buying it. Perfect hair and make up . I am glad she opted for Ralph Rucci.

    I really like Tika’s red carpet style. The bold colour of the dress looks divine against her skin.

    I don’t like the shoes but it does’t stop me from liking the whole thing.

    Oooh, I like this. The shoe thing works better for me here than on Sofia.

    BDOTW for me

    The colour looks fabulous on her, as does the simplicity. The shoes are gimmicky.

    I really dislike the shoes. They’re so weird and create an odd optical illusion. The dress is OK but it’s too bright for me with that shiny fabric.

  12. Christine June 15, 2013 at 04:27 #

    Very bright and pretty

    I like the structure of the dress and I love the color on her. I’m still so so on these sorts of shoes.
