If you’re still going to do Hervé Léger on the red carpet, this is how you do it. Skip the now ubiquitous bandage dresses, and go for one of the label’s less obvious designs. Actress Tika Sumpter attended the 2011 BET Awards, and the Gossip Girl and The Game actress opted for that old Hollywood red carpet standard, Hervé Léger.
She looked great wearing a dress from the label’s Spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection. Her dress featured a woven design, with a peekaboo keyhole cutout right below the neckline. She added a pop of color to her monochromatic ensemble, in the form of a red clutch.
Everything about her look is great — hair, makeup, accessories — but if I could change one thing, it would be her shoes. There isn’t exactly anything wrong with them, but something ‘lighter’ and strappier would’ve been better.
