CELEBS OUT & ABOUT: Selita Ebanks, Tika Sumpter, Aretha Franklin, Lala, & Sharon Leal

Tika Sumpter, fab actress from "Gossip Girl" and "The Game", hit up designer Rebecca Taylor's (pictured) store opening in New York with Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks last night.

 

The twosome rocked some of Rebecca's vintage inspired designs for the occasion. And we've got pics of them, Lala and Aretha at last night's Knicks game, and Sharon Leal at the Hollywood premiere of Sucker Punch, when you read on....

Tika rocked this cute vintage inspired look complete with a cream blazer, floppy hat, and calf length dress, all by Rebecca Taylor.

And Selita Ebanks rocked her Rebecca Taylor floral and polka dot dress with nude Louboutins.

And over in midtown, Aretha Franklin (FYI--many credible NEWS sources consistently identify the man pictured as 52-year-old son Eddie, but other credible NEWS sources identify him as her boyfriend--toss up) took in the Knicks game courtside at Madison Square Garden last night:

Lookin' good 'Retha.

Spikey was there cheering on the home team.

And Lala was there cheering on her man Carmelo.
 

And over in Hollywood, he big Sucker Punch premiere went down at the Chinese Theater:

And CW's "Hellcats" star Sharon Leal was there in a cute black and white dress.

Fun night out for the celeb folks.

STOP THE FOOLISHNESS, esp

STOP THE FOOLISHNESS, esp Hannibal. The only reason Bey, Alicia, or some of these artists are popular is because society is obsessed with looking white or light, not because these women are prettier than chocolate sistas. I notice facial features on women, the smoothness of the skin, smile, less makeup, the cheekbones. If Bey or Alicia take out all the things that comes with looking glam, they will look regular. I'm a dark skin athletic guy, and the stereotype of every athlete is, he likes white or light skin chicks. I've dated different women and my current girlfriend is chocolate and I find her as attractive as the other women I've dated.

All I'm saying is, most of the time, light skinned people look better than dark skinned people, but there are some decent looking dark skinned people, like Tika.
Hannibal's picture

Both of you are a FAIL when

Both of you are a FAIL when it comes to having pride in your race. Hannibal was a powerful military leader - he's not a punch line. And skin color has nothing to do with facial features, which is what beauty is judged by. God gave the African people dark skin and God does not make mistakes. We finally got the chains off but your brains are still shackled. SMH

AMEN! I'm so tired of Dark =

AMEN! I'm so tired of Dark = Bad and Light = Good. Being light will never make you White so why not just have pride for who you are. All others races are proud to be who they are but Black people don't want to be associated with our roots. We weren't born slaves people! We were enslaved. We are not innately subordinate, marginalized or second-rate. We should be proud to be what God intended, not striving to be someone we'll never be.

Tika is pretty for any type

Tika is pretty for any type of complexion. Why define her by her skin tone? I'm a caramel brown complexion, but I'd be offended if I was dark and read that. I've seen plenty of pretty dark woman and a bunch of funny lookin' light women. The complexion does not make the woman. In society, ppl believe being lighter MAY help a not so attractive woman look better but that doesn't guaranty a person to be prettier. Once a white man told my co-worker that I was pretty for a black girl. WTF!!! I know he felt it was a compliment, but I was HIGHLY offended! PPL think before you talk and hurt someone's feelings.

I'm sorry if I offended you,

I'm sorry if I offended you, but there are not too many good looking dark skinned women like Tika, at least in Hollywood.
Hannibal's picture

Hannibal, you really shouldnt

Hannibal, you really shouldnt judge the beauty of your own people by what Hollywood presents of them - our beauty is not what they aim to highlight.
Anonymous's picture

I understand what you are

I understand what you are saying, and I am not judging anyone, I gave Tika her props for being a beautiful woman.
Hannibal's picture

actually no u didnt. u didnt

actually no u didnt. u didnt even give her "props" for just being a beautiful woman. she HAD to be pretty "for a dark-skinned woman" so in other words. she's ugly, but she's attractive among the rest of the ugly dark skinneded ones.... wit ur icon photo of MJ... EPITOME OF SELF HATE... FOOL... prolly black as fawk

I am not going to sit here

I am not going to sit here and argue with you, because every one has their own opinions! The fact of the matter is, 9 times out of ten, a light skinned woman is going to look better than a dark skinned woman (no offense). By the way, Nicki Minaj is a goddess, so stop hating and show some respect to the queen of hip hop.

I visited West Africa last

I visited West Africa last year and can say with NO DOUBT that tall, lean, dark-skinned women are the most regal and confident women I have ever seen. I'm an african-american chick and I couldnt help but stare. They had high cheekbones and almond shaped eyes, aquiline noses, tiny waists YET shapely behinds and they walked around with their shoulders back and head up. They were STUNTING even the ones who lived in the rural villages! That's when I understand why there were so many WHITE MEN on the SN Brussels airplane on the way over, looking happy as hell! LOL

pretty FOR ANY BITCH!'s picture

You do understand what a

You do understand what a "period" is used for in grammer right? It separates two different sentences. Therefore, if you look again you will see that her first sentence is, "Tikka is soooo pretty!". That is ONE statement. Her next sentence was, "Yay for dark skinned chicks!". That was a second sentence. Two different UNRELATED thoughts. Obviously, she was "cheering" for dark skin chicks. I think you were so ready to jump on someone you jumped on the wrong one. LOL

Correction, she wrote "YES

Correction, she wrote "YES for dark skinned chicks!". YES or YAY, those are both AFFIRMING words that she used to show her support. GET IT??
Sayitnow's picture

Actually little dummy the

Actually little dummy the fact that anyone has to even point out that she's a darker shade of brown screams color-struck and nullifies the view that she is SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL. The "YES for dark-skinned girls" comment is divisive and is no different from saying "she's pretty for a dark skin girl." It clearly shows that person doesn't view very many dark skin women as pretty otherwise she wouldn't feel the need to cheer for the lot.
