Tika Sumpter In Marc Bouwer – ‘Sparkle’ LA Premiere

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.

You can buy Tika’s B Brian Atwood ‘Cassise’ metallic leather chain-strap sandals from Neiman Marcus.

Best Dressed Of The Week – Beyonce Knowles In Marc Bouwer & Jessica Biel In Giambattista Valli Couture

The votes for BDOTW were tied this week.

You couldn’t decide between the glamorous Marc Bouwer gown worn by Beyonce Knowles for her World Humanitarian Day performance, and Jessica Biel’s Giambattista Valli Couture look worn to the ‘Total Recall’ London premiere.

Beyonce’s white sequin gown blew us away, while Jessica’s look was a much-needed improvement considering the many issues we have had with her red-carpet looks prior.

So in the end this was the perfect result.

My personal favourite this week was Jessica in GBV.

Beyonce Knowles In Marc Bouwer – ‘I Was Here’ World Humanitarian Day Performance

Beyoncé Knowles donned white again when she took to the stage at the United Nations General Assembly on Friday in New York City.

The singer performed ‘I Was Here’, which was taped in front of a live audience to premiere August 19 on World Humanitarian Day.

Not only did she leave the audience breathless with her performance, but also her stunning Marc Bouwer Pre-Fall 2012 gown.

Her white micro-sequin long-sleeve gown with bold shoulders and a cut-out detail could be mistaken for a couture gown.

Once again she opted for no accessories, keeping her makeup natural with a sleek ponytail.

An early candidate for BDOTW.

Mary J Blige In Marc Bouwer – 2011 Billboard Music Awards

Questions My Love For Leopard Print Award
At the 2011 Billboard Music Awards Mary J Blige made me question my love of leopard print.

I have always been a fan of leopard print, but this dress is screaming to go back into the wild.

I don’t like the solid panels with the print and I really don’t like the high neckline.

Mary can pull of most looks, but this look is overwhelming her from the print, to the neckline to the bold shoulders.

Katharine McPhee In Marc Bouwer – QVC Red Carpet Style Party

Katharine McPhee opted for a stand out look for the QVC Red Carpet Style Party which was held in LA recently.

The singer grab attention wearing a Marc Bouwer Spring 2011 gown.

Her stunning red gown with a plunging neckline and bold shoulders was paired with nude pumps.

Sexy sandals, bold red lips and smoky eyes would’ve had me falling in head over heels in love with this look.

Runway “Heat” Fragrance Launch – Beyonce Knowles In Marc Bouwer

Beyonce Knowles presented her debut fragrance ‘Heat’ at a star-studded launch party last night in New York City’s Union Square.

Let’s discuss this, because after Beyonce Knowles stunning Grammy Award red carpet and performance looks – sans earrings and silly string in her hair – this feels like step back.

The singer wore a flamenco style asymmetrical Marc Bouwer Spring 2010 red dress.

What makes me laugh about this look is her pose, which is so “America’s Next Top Model” episode one.

I can imagine Miss J saying “Hey girl, do you like my dress?” then imitating her pose in a broke down fashion.

Something had to give with this dress, either it was the bow on the bodice or the asymmetrical ruffled hem because the dress is too cutesy for a woman of her age.

She may have opted for the black Casadei peep-toes to tone down the look somewhat, but who’s looking at the pumps when the dress is so busy?
