Gabrielle Union brought a sporty take to summer whites in New York City this week.
The “Bring It On” actress beat the heat in a white midi dress while filming her new movie, “The Perfect Find,” in downtown Manhattan with Latoia Fitzgerald and Remy Ma. Union’s dress featured a cinched waist and ruched gray stripe details on its’ front and the slightly puffy three-quarters-length sleeves. She accessorized with a collar necklace, a chunky gold ring and dark gray earrings, creating a tonal neutral look.
Union grounded her outfit in a pair of chunky white sneakers by CAFèNOIR. The shoes featured exaggerated rubber platform soles, as well as rounded toes. A bright green snake-print trim accented the pair’s uppers, toes, soles, and heel counters, as well. Union’s sneakers retail for $33 (on sale from $144) on Yoox.com.
When it comes to fashion, Union has a penchant for statement-making looks. The “Being Mary Jane” actress often incorporates trends like crochet and mesh into outfits by Chanel, Valentino, The Attico, and Prada. Union has also held a longtime partnership with New York & Co., which has led to multiple clothing lines and a size-inclusive capsule collection for the 2019 holiday season. She’s also a brand ambassador for SensatioNail and has been a spokesperson for Neutrogena for years.
Shoe-wise, Union always goes for the bold. The actress tends to favor of-the-moment trends, most recently wearing square-toed thong sandals by Magda Butrym, By Far and Gia Couture’s recent collaboration with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She’s also known for wearing strappy sandals and tall boots as well, usually by top brands like Paris Texas, Tamara Mellon and Tabitha Simmons. While off-duty, Union prefers both colorful and neutral sneakers by Adidas, Reebok and Nike.
