Are you ready for Sparkle? The remake of the classic film about three teenagers from Harlem who set their sights on making musical history in Motown will be significant in more ways than one. It is the last film made by Whitney Houston, who passed away three months after production ended on the Salim Akil-directed project. It also marks the acting debut of American Idol Jordin Sparks. But Houston and Sparks aren’t the only two stars in the film. Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Cee Lo Green, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Tamela Mann and Omari Hardwick also star in the film. Let’s meet the cast and take a peak at their stylish retro chic fashions, shall we?
“Sparkle” played by Jordin Sparks
Jordin Sparks needs no introduction. The Arizona-raised songstress has come a long way since she won American Idol in 2006. Marking her feature film debut, fans are waiting to see how she’ll handle her big role playing a role inspired by Diana Ross (as part of the Supremes). Judging from the look of her outfit, it’s apparent that color blocking is nothing new and was definitely part of the retro chic look.
