Winning With Tika Sumpter and Tracy Reese
We've recently become accustomed to seeing Tika Sumpter on Monday nights, but our sightings are usually on the small screen; Sumpter plays Raina Thorpe on Gossip Girl. But yesterday evening we caught up with the actress in person at the CFDA Awards where Sumpter joined her friend, designer Tracy Reese. “Tracy designs for girls, for women, for real women,” said Sumpter. “You can go from the 50s to the 60s to the 70s with her; you feel classic and feminine, yet modern when your in Tracy Reese and I love that about her.” In the spirit of the event we took the opportunity to ask the duo about their most recent winning moments.
GlamChic: What was the last thing you won?
Sumpter: “I never win anything, I always have to work hard. I'm not that person who wins the mega millions or anything like that. I'm always the girl hustling! Hustle, hustle hustle.”
Reese: “I won a new nephew this year. My brother Marcus and my new sister Dawn presented us with Logan and he lives in Brooklyn so I get to see him all the time. My other nephews and niece are in Michigan so I don't get to see them as often, so Logan has just been a gift and it has made it an incredible spring.”
