We’ve got a serious closet crush on Tika Sumpter, the stunning brown-skinned beauty who appears on CW’s Gossip Girl as Raina Thorpe and BET’s The Game as Jenna Rice.

We were first enraptured by her flawless skin, which landed her a spot in Ambi skincare commercials. But it wasn’t until she hit the runway at Fall 2011 Fashion Week that her sartorial sense won us over.

In soft printed skirts, demure sheath dresses and 70s-style separates, she has put a modern, feminine spin on minimalism. And we’re falling deeper in love with each sighting. Scroll through our favorite looks.

  • Cute! I know Tika’s stylist and she’s extremely talented. Hence she looks amazing every time she steps out the door. Love this!

  • Tika definitely always comes correct. I recently wrote an article about her on my blog regarding how it feels good to see a chocolate girl that looks like me getting some recognition. Black is Black, and we’re all one in the same, or should I say cocoa or creme? But one thing’s for certain, that’s a beautiful brown girl and I’m feeling her style.
