Tika Sumpter in Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2014 attends the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon.


When we last checked in with The Haves and the Have Nots star Tika Sumpter, she was battling it out with fellow actress Lupita Nyong’o on who rocked their white cut out dress best.

Lupita decidedly won that fashion face-off, with commenters (on Instagram) arguing that Tika’s style was just a smidge too revealing.

Well, at the seventh annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon Tika proved that she can werq a ‘ladies who lunch’ look as fabulously as she can floss a Cushnie et Ochs frock.

With subtle makeup and a braided up ‘do, Tika styled on the event’s white carpet wearing a Bibhu Mohapatra dress from the designer’s Resort 2014 collection.

She styled the sky blue and emerald green midi length dress with a cream Saint Laurent box clutch, and royal blue Saint Laurent ‘Jane’ ankle strap sandals ($795).
