Gabrielle Union In Akris – ‘Straight Outta Compton’ LA Premiere

Gabrielle Union In Akris -  ‘Straight Outta Compton’ LA Premiere

Gabrielle Union joined Teyonah Parris on the red carpet for the premiere of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ on Monday (August 10) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress wore an Akris Fall 2015 tuxedo-style dress featuring sheer elements that lent a feminine polish to this uber sleek look.

I’m sure many will make instant comparison to Emma Stone’s Christian Dior Couture SAG Awards gown, but love how the sheer sleeves and back of Gabrielle’s look dialled down the formalness and amped up the sex appeal.

An Edie Parker clutch and flawless makeup completed this BDOTW worthy look.

Gabrielle Union In Noam Hanoch, Self-Portrait & Rag & Bone – NYFWM Spring 2016 Front Row

Gabrielle Union In Noam Hanoch, Self-Portrait & Rag & Bone - NYFWM Spring 2016 Front Row

Gabrielle Union has become quite the Olivia Palermo of New York Fashion Week Men’s, as on Tuesday (July 14) the ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress sat front row at several shows alongside hubby Dwayne Wade.

Here are a handful of her looks.

EFM Engineered for Motion Show: No surprises that her black and nude Noam Hanoch jumpsuit is my favourite look. Not only for the sleek nature of the one-piece, but also for complementary styling which including Bionda Castana ‘Bay’ pumps and an Eddie Borgo ‘Boyd’ clutch.

Todd Snyder Show: Self-Portrait always delivers the perfect blend of classic and contemporary and that was most definitely the case with this embroidered-lace Pre-Fall 2015 dress, however, the partial lining is slightly throwing me off loving the look. The shoes score a perfect 10 however.

Rag & Bone Show: Even with the attempt to down play this look with the Rag & Bone bomber jacket, Gabrielle still oozes elegance wearing a navy Nili Lotan slip dress styled with Jimmy Choo grey sandals and a Clare V. clutch.

Which look was your favourite?

Gabrielle Union In Halston Heritage – 2015 BET Awards

Gabrielle Union In Halston Heritage - 2015 BET Awards

Gabrielle Union attended the 2015 BET Awards at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (June 28) in Los Angeles, California.

The ‘Being Mary Jane’ star wore a Halston Heritage Fall 2015 full sequin gown which was glamorous enough for the event, but when you factor in the dark lip, the vampy eye makeup and silver David Webb cuffs, everything feels so heavy and laboured.

Like Zendaya, I was expecting way better from Gabrielle; something along the lines of her stunning Gauri & Nainika gown from the 2015 NAACP Image Awards.

The Paley Center For Media Hosts A Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center For Media Hosts A Tribute To African-American Achievements In Television

The Paley Center for Media hosted a tribute to African-American achievements in television on Wednesday (May 13) at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

Kerry Washington: The ‘Scandal’ actress, who has been on a roller coaster ride of red carpet hits and misses, relied on the ubiquitous see-through trend to get by at the event. The netted Self-Portrait black frock was a more vampy entrance for Kerry, so I’m glad she completely embraced it with an oxblood lip.

Gabrielle Union: Significantly sunnier, Gabrielle’s Rosie Assoulin yellow frock was a delightfully radiant colour for her, although I wish the top half of the dress fit a bit more seamlessly. She accessorized the look with Nikos Koulis jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti embellished black heels.

2015 Met Gala Roundup

"China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala - Arrivals

A flurry of even more bold names descended on red carpet of the ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’ 2015 Met Gala, hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday (May 4), where their colourful variety of looks only contributed to this year’s fashion extravaganza.

Anna Wintour
: As the gala co-host, the ‘Vogue’ editor-in-chief dressed thematically (for her, anyway) in a Chanel Spring 2015 Couture gown featuring dimensional, all-over poppy embroidery, which had been lengthened from the runway’s original shorter version. She should have maintained her signature cap sleeve, as the flower petal statement shoulders translated as a bit cumbersome, despite their inherent artistry.

Bee Shaffer: Like her mother, Bee also found inspiration in flowers, opting for a mahogany blossom gown by Alexander McQueen. I much preferred this look to Anna’s, especially with the enchantment of the beautifully embroidered Chinese cranes that alighted down the back of the dress.
