Before making her acting debut as Fatima on Tyler Perry’s Sistas, Crystal Hayslett worked as a costume designer and was later promoted to the entertainment giant’s personal stylist. In an interview with Page Six, she explains how her love of fashion began early on during her childhood growing up in the small town of Martin, Tennessee. 

As a kid, I would go to the grocery store with my mom and pick up magazines like InStyle, Elle, Ebony, Vogue, Essence and Vibe. It helped me know what the latest styles were and what was trending.

After she graduated from the University of Tennessee, she moved to Atlanta and landed a job as a production assistant at Tyler Perry Studios in 2013. In just a few short years she went from personal assistant running errands to costume designer on various projects, and eventually adding acting and producing credits to her list of accomplishments.  

I literally am living the dream that I dreamed of when I was a 5-year-old girl. TPS is a big family. These are people that I grew up with, from getting coffee and running errands to now shooting and seeing these same supportive faces.

When Andrea (KJ Smith) gets dolled up for a girl’s night out, she turns heads in a high fashion tube dress that fits like a second skin and dares to bare some skin with a plunging neckline. Keeping up with the trends, she makes a daring fashion statement by showing off lots of side cleavage. For more coverage, this style of dress can also be worn with a decorative bra underneath, adding a stylish layer of underwear as outerwear.

A timeless look that provides full coverage of the neckline, the white cowl neck dress with mid-length sleeves gives Fatima (Crystal Hayslett) a polished and put-together look that’s perfect for the office. The ruched side hemlines also add a sense of texture, which lends a subtle sense of balance to the tight-fitting bodice. Pair it with heels in a bright color that really pops and you’ll be ready to channel Fatima and her tough girl vibe when facing the tension of office politics.

Whenever Andrea (KJ Smith) struts into the office, everybody knows that this high-powered lawyer is more than ready to tell it to the judge. Not afraid to wear a bold color like bright pink, Andrea prefers to stand out with a high fashion twist on the classic power suit – scalloped power shoulders and a fitted A-line cut.

In Season 3, Zac (Devale Ellis) has a target on his back as he quickly schemes his way into large amounts of cash, and the drama continues to intensify in Season 4. His personal life might be falling apart, but on the outside, he gives the impression of a high-powered executive in a tailored suit and vest.

When Sabrina (Novi Brown) joins the ladies for a wild evening out, she goes full-on glam with a long sleeve tube dress covered top to bottom in multi-colored sequins. The result is lots of coverage and even more sparkles, making her shine like a diamond on the dance floor.  

The characters might be busy scheming and dreaming in Atlanta, but they always have time to look good, whether it’s a girls’ night out at the male strip club Eden, a not-so-quiet night at home, or an intense day at the office.
