SPARKLE Ignites Interest in Retro Fashion… [PHOTOS + OFFICIAL MOVIE TRAILER]

Aug 17th 2012 | Written by ATLien

Sparkle, this Summer’s most anticipated film, highlights the glamourous and colorful fashions of the 60’s.

That “retro chic” style is incredible and we continue to see influences of the time period even in today’s fashions.

The classic film about three teenagers from Harlem who set their sights on making musical history in Motown has been brought back to life and it’s remake will be significant in more ways than one.

a.) Sparkle is Whitney Houston‘s last film. The actress/singer passed away only three months after production ended on the Salim Akil-directed project.

b.) Sparkle marks the acting debut of American Idol Jordin Sparks.

Houston and Sparks star in the film alongside Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Cee Lo Green, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Tamela Mann and Omari Hardwick.

Check out a few photos of the cast rocking retro fashions from the highly anticipated film + watch the SPARKLE official movie trailer below… Continue Reading…
