Five years earlier, she starred as 17-year-old Maria Bennett in the 2011 American dance film Honey 2, a sequel to Jessica Alba’s 2003 film Honey.

Is Jessica Alba in Honey 2?

No, she does not star in the movie. While Jessica Alba refused to appear in the sequel, Honey 2 features the return of two characters from the original “Honey” film: Connie (played by Lonette McKee) and Katrina (played by Laurieann Gibson).

Connie is the mother of Honey Daniels (Jessica Alba), the main character of the first film, who is mentioned a few times in the dialogue of the sequel.

Laurieann Gibson reprises her role as Katrina but is credited as Rebecca and serves as a judge in the sequel.

Katerina Alexandre Hartford Graham was 22 years old when the movie was released straight-to-video in the United States on February 21, 2012. She celebrated her 23rd birthday on September 5, 2012.

Due to her commitment to LGBT advocacy and HIV awareness, Kat was honored at the 2016 Lambda Legal West Coast Liberty Awards Gala with the “Celebrity in the Spotlight Award.”

This award was presented by her long-time best friend, Alissa Brooks.

Never one to fear flashing some flesh, The Vampire Diaries star really amplified the sex appeal in her skin-baring ensemble.

Kat drew attention to her chest and arms in a Vatanika bandeau that featured off-the-shoulder feather sleeves. She showed off her trim tummy in a white high-waisted skirt from Misha Collection.

The floor-length skirt added some contrast to the black bandeau and displayed her toned legs through two thigh-high slits.

The then-26-year-old Hannah Montana actress completed her sultry look with sleek accessories.

She added some extra edge to her look with a black choker necklace, silver rings, spiked earrings, and a Fiona Kotur clutch.

The Parent Trap actress let a few strands of hair escape her low ponytail and wore flawless makeup with winged eyeliner and nude matte lipstick.

Born in Switzerland to a Russian mother and a Liberian father, the young actress paired her black-and-white ensemble with matching funky black-and-white Brian Atwood sandals.

These gorgeous sandals — dubbed the “Harley” — come from Brian Atwood’s Spring/Summer 2016 Collection.

They feature black and white striped detailing on the straps and ankle cuffs, as well as wrapped ankle ties.

Cut-out features and peep toes give the shoes a summery vibe, but the monochrome color scheme makes them appropriate for any occasion!
