Tika Sumpter In Bibhu Mohapatra - 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Tika Sumpter attended the 7th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon held at Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday (February 27) in Beverly Hills, California.

Wearing her hair in chic braided updo, the actress wore a baroque printed cocktail dress from Bibhu Mohapatra’s Resort 2014 collection which featured a high, square neckline, cap sleeves, wrap-effect skirt, and a geometric cut-out at the back.

Like Brandy Norwood, this was yet another contemporary look for a luncheon, but she totally nailed with accessories picking up the hues of her frock including blue Saint Laurent sandals, a white Saint Laurent clutch and Paolobongia rings.

Tika Sumpter In Johanna Johnson – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Tika Sumpter In Johanna Johnson - NAACP Image Awards 2014Tika Sumpter was also among the crush of stars at the NAACP Image Awards 2014, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Saturday (February 22).

The actress glided onto the red carpet in a languid Johanna Johnson gown in a glossy champagne hue.

Accenting the creamy silk slip dress with a touch of metal, she carried a gold L.K. Bennett ‘Nina’ clutch and looped on a double-strand tassel necklace.

With her hair coaxed into finger waves and her lips painted with a matte rouge lacquer, the whole effect of the look was one of vintage glam. Do you like the retro appeal?

Tika Sumpter In Milly – DirecTV Super Saturday Night

Tika Sumpter In Milly - DirecTV Super Saturday Night

Tika Sumpter attended the DirecTV Super Saturday Night at Pier 40 on Saturday (February 1) in New York City.

The actress showed off her toned physique wearing a Milly Spring 2014 look which consisted of a white bra top and a white laser-cut leather skirt featuring a black waistband and black leather hot pants.

Despite factoring in the season, the weather in New York and the wild hair, I find myself liking this look.

Not over styled, and she has the body for it – so frankly, why not?

Tika Sumpter In Alberta Ferretti – ‘The Butler’ New York Premiere

Tika Sumpter In Alberta Ferretti - 'The Butler' New York Premiere

Tika Sumpter was just one of many stars who took to the red carpet in New York City on Monday evening for ‘The Butler’ premiere.

Dressed in a bold red hue to match the red carpet, she donned an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2012 halter dress with satin trims.

I love the colour on Tika; however, aside from the hair and makeup, the styling lets her down.

She clearly jumped on the white-pumps trend for the sake of it, and the black clutch with the white pumps is a total head scratcher.


You can buy Tika’s Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps from Net-A-Porter International and Barneys.com.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better…Nicole Richie, Dafne Fernandez or Tika Sumpter?

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better

Nicole Richie wore a Stella McCartney ‘Bianca’ striped black-and-white dress while seated front row at the designer’s Fall 2013 presentation in Paris back in March as one of the early adopters of the black-and-white trend.

Dafne Fernandez wore the same dress a few days later while attending the Fotogramas Awards, styling her look with sexy black sandals and a matching clutch.

Cut to July, and Tika Sumpter was spotted taking this dress for a spin for the third time while making a guest appearance on ‘New York Live!’ She styled her look with Christian Louboutin ‘Love Me’ pumps and a sleek ponytail.

The A-line skirt looks somewhat deflated on Dafne, so between Tika and Nicole I am going to go for Nicole, as Tika’s pumps do not complement the dress.

You can buy their Stella McCartney dress from Saks.com, Forward by Elyse Walker, farfetch.com US, farfetch.com, Ssense.com and Selfridges.
