Actress Stuns in $7,000 Designer Look on Red Carpet
Actress Tika Sumpter commanded attention with her head-turning fashion at the Los Angeles premiere of her new sports comedy film “Underdoggs.” Produced by Snoop Dogg, the movie hits Amazon Prime Video on January 26th with Sumpter starring as a childhood version of classic video game character Sonic the Hedgehog.
Walking the red carpet alongside co-stars like Snoop Dogg, Omarion, KaMillion and others, the 43-year-old brought glamour and style reminiscent of a high-fashion magazine editorial.
“She nearly shut the carpet down with her main character energy,” said style expert Bryon Javar.
Sumpter dazzled in a $4,320 peach silk dress with handstitched butterflies from Lebanese designer Jean-Louis Sabaji’s 2024 collection, paired with the brand’s $2,720 matching long-sleeve blazer.
Bringing High Fashion to Promo Tour
Celebrity stylist Bryon Javar has been helping Sumpter make major fashion statements during her “Underdoggs” press tour. Prior to the premiere, she wowed in two standout looks from Black designers.
A hot pink suit from Harbison Studio showed off the star’s glowing complexion and legs, with a playful high-waisted skirt and bold gold buttons. Sumpter then went edgy in an oversized blazer, bandeau top and skirt combo exuding “cool girl” appeal.
“Tika, and her stylist have been leveraging her current press tour to showcase her style. And we are so glad they have,” said a entertainment fashion columnist.
Film Celebrates Community and Following Dreams
Beyond the glitz and glamour, “Underdoggs” carries an uplifting message underlying all the comedy. Sumpter called the film “about family, love, community, kids, irreverence, laughter and believing in each other.”
She shared her joy at seeing friends and family laugh and enjoy the movie at its recent premiere. More than just a star vehicle, “Underdoggs” represents themes of camaraderie and perseverance that speak to Sumpter herself.
Audiences can see Tika Sumpter light up the screen alongside talented young co-stars when the film launches January 26th. With standout acting and style, she remains an inspirational talent to watch in 2024 and beyond.
