Stars came out shining for the LA premiere of ‘Sparkle’. The movie is a remake of the 1957 version features three sisters who form girl group and soon become Motown sensations, but fame becomes a challenge as the close-knit family begins to fall apart.
Star of the movie, Jordin Sparks wore a white strapless dress embellished with crystals by Chagoury Couture. She carried a petite Judith Leiber clutch and wore silver heels by Jimmy Choo. The 22 year-old has lost a lot of weight since we first met her back in 2007. Girl is working this dress. Love her smile and the back shot of this dress!
Apparently the American Idol winner is dating Jason Derulo who couldn’t make it to the premiere because he’s working in Australia. Jordin brought her parents as guests instead. How cute are they? She is a perfect blend of mom and dad.
Tika Sumpter rocked the heck out of a sexy red Marc Bouwer dress with a plunging neckline and high slit.
The presence of the late Whitney Houston was felt on the red carpet. ‘Sparkle’ was her pet project. Whitney acquired the rights to re-make the film in 2000 and has been working on the project since then. As the star of 1992’s ‘The Bodyguard’ Whitney was looking to this film as being her acting comeback.
“It’s bittersweet. I’m here to celebrate, but I have my Kleenex,” said gospel legend BeBe Winans, a close family friend who sang at Houston’s funeral. “I can hear her words in my head, that she’s proud, that she accomplished something people didn’t think she could accomplish.”
I’ve heard good reviews of the movie so far. Jordin and Whitney Houston can blow so I’m looking forward to hearing them sing. Get out and go see this movie!
