Gabrielle Union In Prada – 2013 Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s Opening Night

Gabrielle Union In Prada - 2013 Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater's Opening Night

Gabrielle Union attended the 2013 Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater’s opening night benefit gala in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore a Prada strapless gown in a luscious emerald-green hue with a side slit grazing her upper thigh.

As you know, I have never been a fan of Miuccia’s gowns and while I love the colour there is something bothering me around the waist and bust area that’s missing some finesse, which would’ve made this meh gown into a great gown.

Despite my nitpicks, Gabrielle does look drop-dead gorgeous, even though I wish she had opted for a daintier shoe.

    IMO, this looks dated.

      Totally agree. Also, looks like a prom dress. I really like the colour though.

        I was totally thinking prom circa 1984 myself. However, Garbrielle could make a paper bag look beautiful. Love the color too!

    I feel like Prada need to be more selective with the gowns they send out because some some of their pieces (namely Nicole Kidman’s gown she wore in China, Michelle Dockery at the Emmys, Lupita Nyong’o at TIFF) have been stunning! Gowns like this that lack the usual finesse we expect just sends their appeal as a red carpet brand 2 steps back.

    The dress looks cheap and the styling is not good

    Bland and a tad lifeless.

    This dress is not fitting her properly and looks like a prom dress. The shoes don’t work. I like the color of the dress. She looks pretty neck up.

    It looks like someone just wrapped some fabric around her

    She looks great, but it’s definitely not thanks to the dress.

      Agree. And ‘lacking finesse’ is exactly right.

    Seriously, why does the slit need to be that high?! It cheapens the whole look for me.

    Gabrielle Union & Naomi Harris favor so much to me! Too bad the style doesn’t :-( & I like Gabby but this just is not doing it for me
