Jordan Is Ready to Sparkle

Actress/singer (and Sept./Oct. Sophisticate’s Black Hair cover star) Jordin Sparks truly looked every inch the leading lady last night at the special screening of her TriStar Pictures’ film Sparkle. Wearing a scarlet dress with her hair worn loose and softly waved, Jordin made a trendy style statement with red-dipped ends. Cast mates Carmen Ejogo (in a sexy upsweep) and Tika Sumpter (in sleek lengths) also lit up the special movie screening held at the Tribecca Grand Hotel in New York City. Here we share some of our fave shots…

Jordin Sparks looks every inch the leading lady in soft waves kissed with crimson.

A closer look at Carmen Ejogo’s upswept coif…simple, sexy and oh-so-modern.


Double the style…Sparkle producer Debra Martin Chase (left) and actress Tika Sumpter show off sleek looks–in two different lengths.


Wanna make a bet this is going on Facebook or Twitter? Jordin takes her own photo with co-star Derek Luke and her mom Jodi Wiedermann.
