Talk about a style showdown. We already knew white on the red carpet was having an off season style moment, so it should come as no surprise that two of Hollywood’s rapidly rising stars have both indulged in the fashion trend.
Tika Sumpter has made major moves in her career since her early days in the industry playing Layla Williamson on ABC’s One Life to Live.
Not only is she starring in the number one hit drama The Haves and The Have Nots on OWN, she’s also starring in this weekend’s predicted number one movie Ride Along with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.
At the movie’s NYC premiere, Tika dazzled in a Cushnie et Ochs Resort 2014 neoprene cut out dress ($1495).
She finished off her look in dramatic yet timeless fashion with a matte red lip and black patent leather heels and a matching black clutch. There’s a reason the color combo of black, white, and red never is out of style, especially when it looks like it does on Tika.
12 Years A Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o is definitely having the best year evah, and we’ve barely made it through January.
The always impeccably styled Ms. Nyong’o was the best dressed at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, has picked up a Miu Miu ad campaign, and as of tonight, has nabbed both a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.
At the Critics’ Choice Awards, Lupita left everyone within her vicinity speechless as she owned the red carpet and stunned in a custom Calvin Klein creation done in ivory, featuring strategically placed cut-outs.
Lupita’s ensemble was completed by flawlessly (of course) applied makeup, a Calvin Klein clutch (natch), Paul Andrew shoes, and Kimberly McDonald jewelry.
Do we really need a best dressed face-off for this since they both look so amazing? But for those who insist…
