VIBE Vixen’s 2011 HOT 25 (Summer Edition)


Tika Sumpter is chocolate Vixen most giving us a sweet tooth! She goes by a few aliases: Layla Williamson (One Life To Live), Raina Thorpe (Gossip Girl) and Jenna Rice (The Game); however, she has a very fun, girl-next-door demeanor that was hard to hide in Esquire’s “Me In My Place” spread. The 28-year-old NY fashionista had been seen everywhere you want to be: front row at New York Fashion Week, strutting red carpets at VIP parties, Essence Festival, you name it. She’s slowly but surely building her fashion and marketing résumé and known to rock labels Vixens love. We’ve watched her step out all summer in Herve Leger, Tracy Reese and plenty of other darling ‘fits that we’d love to get our hands on. Make sure you know this Vixen.
