Draya Michele, Solange Knowles, and Selena Gomez Make their Mark in Fashion


Tika Sumpter

The ‘Haves and the Have Nots’ star Tika Sumpter was a guest of the E! Fashion Police. She looked summery and bright in a Rory Aurora Bustier and matching Tobi Antigua skirt. The cropped bustier featured an invisible side zip closure and the skirt has a fit and flare silhouette. Though the bustier appears to fit a smidgen too tight, the sherbet-orange colored cropped ensemble looked great on Tika.

Teyonah Parris

Teyonah Parris celebrated the final episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’ with AMC at an event held at Sony Pictures Studios. The actress, best known for her role on ‘Mad Men’ wore a black and metallic gold ensemble from The Hellers. Teyonah finished off the crop top and skirt look with a pair of Ruthie Davis cut-out booties and a black clutch. Gold earrings, a beautiful natural updo, and her million dollar smile made this look a keeper.


British actress Naomie Harris looked amazing in a Mary Katrantzou design that she wore to the Audi International Polo at Guards Polo Club. The strapless dress featured a black-and-white landscape-print with multicolored rainbow accents. Naomie finished her look with a pair of black Rupert Sanderson ‘Camail’ sandals.


Zoe Saldana also attended the Audi International Polo at Guards Polo Club and looked summery in an Antonio Berardi design. The red dress frock features graphic white detail and seams that contour and shape the waist. She completed her look with a bold red lip color, gold hooped earrings and white Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps.


Keeping on trend with the crop tops and skirt duos, Solange Knowles was spotted at the RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest in Ottawa, Canada wearing a Dolce & Gabbana cropped knit top and raffia skirt. The salmon colored skirt and striped cropped bustier top looked summery and fun as she performed onstage.


This week’s fashion win comes from the month of May where fashionista Zoe Saldana was seen wearing an Antonio Berardi suit. Zoe paired the design with Christian Louboutin Paulina pumps.


Tia Mowry-Hardict looked great in an ASOS Houndstooth Panel Bodycon Dress and a pair of Christian Louboutin Silver Pensee Mary Jane Flower Pumps. The pumps are part of Louboutin’s 20th anniversary capsule collection, and have a mirror like surface.

While out celebrating her 21st birthday Selena Gomez was seen wearing a Missguided ivory embellished crop top and white Topshop quilted shorts. Though the outfit is on point and on trend, the true star of this ensemble would be the cream Alexander McQueen honeycomb sexy strappy sandals. Shoe envy.

Lala Anthony posted a pic on her Instagram account of her outfit prior to attending her Dad’s 60th surprise birthday party. Lala wore black Versus by Versace and finished the look with a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Anja Rubik suede open toe boots.

Miss Draya Michele also posted a pic of her brand new Tom Ford padlock patent leather pumps. Simply yes to both of these ladies.
