.... to Win-
It's 11:00 and everyone is eagerly awaiting actress and singer Naturi Naughton's arrival. She slips into the entrance hall of New York's luxurious Bryant Park hotel. Introductions are made. By the looks of her golden yellow sundress and striped sandles we have a stylista in the place. Ms. Naughton's latest project is the role of Stacie in the movie Lottery Ticket. The film is directed by Erik White and stars Bow Wow. Ice cube is the Executive Producer of the venture.
The Dressing Room
Naturi gets ready to gear up as a full glam squad prepares her for the photo shoot. For the most of the time she keeps a low profile. The young star was born in East Orange, New Jersey. By 5 years old she was singing in the choir of a local Baptist church. At 15 she was singing with the group 3LW but left after 3 years because of a dispute with management.
Naughton starred in the Tony award winning Broadway musical as little Inez. The thespian then played rapper " Little Kim" in Notorious B.I.G.. The film raked in over 21 million dollars on the opening weekend. She also was the lead role Denise in the remake of Fame.
She is draped from head to toe in an elegant Black House of Dereon gown. One looks around and can imagine this is a place where high powered deals are made over a drink in the twilight hours. The vibe seems right.
