The highly anticipated Hollywood premiere of Sparkle hit Grauman’s Chinese Theatre last night and brought out the sheen of all the movie's performers.
Jordin Sparks, who makes her big-screen debut in the Motown-themed flick, showed off her 50-pound weight loss in a white, intricately beaded Chagoury Couture gown.
She posed with the late Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, who was all smiles on the red carpet, showing respect for her mother's final movie role.
Co-star Carmen Ejogo remembered Whitney on the set as an incredibly generous den mother, and told The Hollywood Reporter Whitney's spirit was "something that could easily be taken advantage of.. but it really should be preserved."
Tika Sumpter, Amber Riley, Vivica A. Fox, Derek Luke and Nick Gordon also posed for photographers before the big screen debut.
