Last night in NYC, Queen Latifah and her “Bessie” co-stars Monique, Tika Sumpter and Khandi Alexander hit the red carpet at their big screening last night.

Check out their pics inside….

The arrivals for the “Bessie” New York Screening went down last night at The Museum of Modern Art.

Tika Sumpter rocked a hot Zuhair Murad lace jumpsuit for the occasion. Fab look for her.

Khandi Alexander aka Mama Pope joined hands with co-star Queen Latifah.

Queen is pulling double duty this time around. She’s executive producing the HBO film and also starring as the legendary blues performer herself, Bessie Smith.

Mary J Blige hit the carpet in all white. Nice look for her.

Estelle is ready for spring in this cute floral skirt and killer red sandals.

Co-Star Monique was all loved up with husband Sidney Hicks on the carpet.

BET President Debra Lee came out to support the YBF stars.

Director Dee Rees (R) posed it up with Beverly Ann Clarke, the granddaughter of Bessie Smith, and Monique while celebrating their big night.

And over at the after party:

Estelle, Queen and Tika laughed it up with friends and colleagues.

“Bessie” premieres May 16, 2015 at 8PM on HBO.
