Tika, honey, you were so close.

We kept staring at this and wondering why the snaps weren’t forming on our fingertips; why we weren’t shouting “WERQ it, gurl!” at the sight of her. Certainly, that’s a stunning gown and it looks fabulous on her. The hair and makeup are gorgeous (although her face is a bit shiny). So what’s our problem, darlings? The belt. Or more accurately, the lack of one. That dress really needs the help in defining the waist. We’d go so far as to say the dress was designed to be worn with one and if you eschew the belt, you’re not doing it right.
Still, she looks pretty spectacular. Some statement earrings would’ve been nice, though.
