This is the best I have seen Gabrielle Union in a very long while.

The actress has been wearing a lot of depressing dark colours for a long while on the red carpet.

That all changed at the BET Honors which took place in Washington, DC last night because I was ecstatic to see her wearing refreshing burst of colour.

She glowed wearing a Rachel Roy Spring 2011 gown.

The aqua deconstructed cascade gown was styled with a matching aqua ring and a chic updo with a few pieces framing her face.

Glad to see Gabrielle back to her best during Awards Season.
