Lady in red, Jordin Sparks took the chic factor up a level in a monochromatic ensemble at the 2012 Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s Honoring the Promise gala in Washington, DC.

Ditching her usual flirty dresses, Sparks opted for a more modern approach to cocktail party attire: a classic trouser and blouse.

What made Sparks’ pant-and-shirt combo work for a night-out?

In head-to-toe red, the Sparkle actress wore a billowy blouse with perfectly tailored pants, both by Joie, to help balance out the volume up top. Pairing a fitted item with a looser one, ensured her newly-toned figure wasn’t lost in fabric.

The slimming power of the red-on-red look and tucked-in shirt further highlighted Sparks’ slimmed-down waist, which she’s been showing off after her recent 50 pound weight loss.

To dress up her outfit and give it an even more of-the-moment feel, the starlet chose brocade pants and black pointy-toed Christian Louboutin pumps.

Sparks, 22, accessorized her crimson pant-and-shirt combo with an orange Reed Krakoff messenger bag that added subtle contrast without competing with her red-hot emsemble.
