Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Tika Sumpter In Stella McCartney - 'New York Live

Tika Sumpter was spotted leaving New York Live! in New York City yesterday, where she made a guest appearance to talk about her series on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

The ‘Sparkle’ actress wore a Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2013 on-trend black-and-white dress, the vertical stripes elongating her silhouette, while the flared skirt and nipped-in waist create a streamlined, hourglass figure. The back of the dress features horizontal stripes to give the dress a mod-chic appeal.

Tika pulled her hair back into a tight ponytail, with hot-red lips and Christian Louboutin ‘Love Me’ bow-front heels completing her look.

As cute as the shoes are, they don’t work with the dress, so I only like this from the ankles up.

You may remember that Nicole Richie, one of the early adopters of the black-and-white trend, was the first to wear this look during Paris Fashion Week, followed by Dafne Fernandez.

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.

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.

Tika Sumpter returned to the red carpet on Thursday evening for the LA premiere of her latest film ‘Sparkle.’

We are kicking ourselves that we missed this last week.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ actually completely blew me away wearing a stunning red Marc Bouwer Fall 2012 gown.

Pairing a plunging neckline with a thigh-high slit is dangerous territory, but Tika makes it look effortless and not overtly revealing.

I’m in love with the gown’s strong shoulders and gorgeous ruching along the waist.

A sleek ponytail and minimal jewelry complete the look.

A red-carpet star is born.

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?
