After keeping us thoroughly entertained during lockdown with her stylish Instagram timeline, Gabrielle Union made her first red carpet appearance of the year at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards which was hosted at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California on Sunday (May 23).
Dressed in a custom Prada white paillette V-neck dress, my first thought was she was paying homage to the Motown era of music as this is giving me vintage Diana Ross vibes.
I feel it in the dress, and the retro flicked out ponytail.
Looking at the other sheer and bolder options on the red carpet, some might feel like she was the Cynthia Bailey-Hill of this event i.e., the Auntie.
I wouldn’t have agreed with that notion until I came to the Prada pink tote.
It doesn’t belong with this look for me, as it sticks out like a sore thumb.
