Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Gabrielle Union In  Maria Lucia Hohan - 2014 BET Awards

Gabrielle Union looked radiant on the red carpet of the 2014 BET Awards yesterday (June 29) held at Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles.

For the occasion, the actress wore a grecian-inspired Maria Lucia Hohan gown from the designer’s Fall 2014 collection, accented with thigh-high black boots.

I love the modern touch the sheer black paneling on the bodice give this gown, but I just can’t wrap my brain around the boots with this gown.

Gabrielle continued a barely there makeup trend we saw throughout the night, and her long, voluminous hair look youthful and fresh.

So, I have to hear: Do you get the boots with the dress, or are you just confused by it like me?

She also wore Pomellato Victoria Collection earrings and Sara Weinstock ‘Saddle’ ring with black diamonds.

Gabrielle Union MakeupCelebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles worked with Gabrielle Union to create her beauty look for the ‘Think Like A Man Too’ LA premiere.

Fiona talks about the inspiration behind the beauty look: “As we were getting ready, Gabrielle, her hairstylist and I talked about the look and the dress. When her hairstylist said he was going to do a tight bun with a deep side part, clean and sleek, and then I saw the two-piece Dolce & Gabbana dress, I knew I wanted to do a red lip and soft eye on Gabrielle. Bronzy skin, a structured brow and flirty lashes looked unfussy while still feeling incredibly elegant.”

Fiona used bronzer on the eyes instead of shadow, to create depth, and skipped liner, making the eye feel not too made up. She wanted to keep the eye all about the lashes, and the look about beautiful skin and a statement lip.

She used false lashes on the top and bottom to open up her eyes, while also giving Gabrielle a stronger brow to balance out the strong lip.

Just a little bronzer on the cheeks gave definition without looking ‘blushy’.

Even though there is a strong lip, the look was all about radiant skin.

'Think Like A Man Too' LA Premiere 2

Four more stars made a bold splash, alongside Meagan Good, at the premiere of ‘Think Like A Man Too,’ hosted at TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday (June 9) in Hollywood, California.

Keke Palmer: Keke couldn’t be missed in her traffic-stopping, neon-yellow Cushnie et Ochs dress, boasting the label’s signature sharp cutouts. Her styling was just as bright, with a matching yellow manicure, a fuchsia lip, gold Christian Louboutin heels, a glittery clutch and XIV Karat Jewelry.

Gabrielle Union: Lovely in black lace, the actress balanced sophistication with sultriness in her Dolce & Gabbana cropped top and high-waist pencil skirt worn with ankle-strap sandals. A matte red lip finished her trendy-elegant outing.

La La Anthony: Well, there was certainly no missing La La, who ignored the cleavage or legs rule, opting to give us an eyeful of both in her Alexander McQueen embellished halter gown paired with similarly embellished cage sandals. Jacob & Co jewels, included a winged ear cuff, accented the look. I’m still trying to determine if the waist-high dual slits or the gaping keyhole is the worse offender here.

Taraji P. Henson: Also working a plunge that was perhaps a fraction too deep, the actress dressed in a Kayat Fall 2013 patterned red, front-slit gown. She accessorized with a quilted silver clutch, a lavender-purple lip and eye, and voluminous waves.

Gabrielle Union In Prada - 2014 Met Gala

Gabrielle Union joined a host of beauties who wore Prada to the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The look featured a custom black crop top embellished with Swarovski crystals, beads and onyx stones paired with a knee-length feather-fringed black plastic wrap skirt.

I wanna love it, but the better half of my brain says there is too much going on and she failed to make it work.

A black leather Prada clutch embellished with grommets and onyx crystals plus Prada black satin sandals accessorized her look, with a braided updo adding the final nail.

Gabrielle Union In Moschino -  GQ & LeBron James NBA All-Star Party

Gabrielle Union and Miami Heat shooting guard Dwayne Wade attended the GQ & LeBron James NBA All-Star Party. The party was held at Ogden Museum’s Patrick F. Taylor Library on Saturday (February 15) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

While Dwayne worked his signature smart suit and sneaker combo, his lady looked very sexy wearing a Moschino strapless black mini frock with gold embellishments.

Styling wise, she opted for black Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and a white clutch with silver embellishments.

The clutch didn’t quite fit with the rest of her look, but otherwise she looked gorgeous.

Gabrielle Union In Rachel Zoe - 'Being Mary Jane' Art Basel Celebration

Gabrielle Union attended BET’s ‘Being Mary Jane’ Art Basel Celebration held at Mokai Lounge in Miami Beach, Florida.

The actress wore a Rachel Zoe ‘The Leigh’ dress, which hails from the designer/stylist’s Spring 2014 collection.

Her weather-appropriate mint-green look with cut-out details at the side and a flared skirt was styled with Jimmy Choo ‘Fauna’ lace open-toe booties in a taupe hue.

Does this flirty summery frock have you longing for hazy sunny days or, like me, are you wishing for some cute Sophia Webster heels with this frock?

You can buy Gabrielle’s Jimmy Choo ‘Fauna’ Lace Open-Toe Booties from Neiman Marcus.
