There is no doubt that Jordin Sparks would have spared a thought for co-star Whitney Houston this evening as she got ready for the Sparkle premiere.

However, the former American Idol wannabe painted on a brave face, looking nothing short of ravishing as she showed off her trim figure in a bold red dress at The Cinema Society screening.

Taking mother Jodi Wiedemann as her date, the 22-year-old slipped into a pretty sleeveless peplum creation that drew attention to her small weight and her recent accomplishment of losing 50lbs.

Scroll down for video...

Prior to her appearance at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York, Jordin spoke about shifting the excess weight in an interview with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie, saying it was as a result of illness.

 

She said: 'I got really sick in the fall of 2010 right after Broadway. And I was just like, "I am not going to take my health for granted anymore. This changes right here, right now."

'I was really evaluating what I was eating, when, and why I was eating it. I love food and so I was just eating because it tasted good. I kind of re-evaluated that. Now I definitely listen to my body first.'

Jordin added: 'I just took baby steps because I was so fatigued from what I was sick with. Just doing baby steps and getting more into physical activity and then eventually I found a trainer. 

'And I’ve been trying to keep it up. It’s a day by day thing. It’s been a year and a half and I feel good.'

The Phoenix native certainly looked confident with her frame, relishing her moment in the spotlight.

She takes centre stage in the film, playing a musical prodigy and daughter to single mother (played by Houston) who struggles to become a star as she deals with the issues tearing her family apart.

Other stars to strike a pose included golden girl and fahsion stylist June Ambrose who nearly stole Jordin's thunder, while True Blood actress Rutina Wesley rocked long braids in a tomboy ensemble.

1. jordin has a very basic look on.  this is the premiere of her first major movie--i feel like she could have done more

2. i just realized cullen has extremely skinny legs. i wish he had just shown up in a speedo. 

3.  i guess Russell Simmon's girl said 'fvkk it. i am not changing bc we're just going to end up in bed anyway."

4. Gabby still looking as fat and greasy as ever.

5.  June Ambrose looks good--but who does she style? just herself?

6.  Tika Sumpter is pretty but her weave....is unsettling...i don't like it. it always looks unnatural.

7.  Epps looks good

8. Why does the least important Baldwin brother look like he's going to a Yankees game?

9. Why was Tracey Bendt there?

10. Rutina--please leave the braids to Brandy.  I feel like whoever does her makeup is clueless about darker skin tones and television. 

11. Can someone please Jordin W.'s eyebrows? Overplucked! 

12. The salty olympian is pretty

13. Is anyone else over Russell Simmon's white model fetish? like for real?  You are not teaching your daughters that black is beautiful

eta:

14. i did not realize Tika was wearing a body suit. brown girl--no

15. i also did not realize that the light skinned girl in that awkward length black dress was also in the movie.  who dressed these fools?
