Gabrielle Union Shines in Neon Couture Gown and Sky-High Hair at Fashion Awards 2021

Gabrielle Union went bold for her most electric red carpet look yet at the 2021 Fashion Awards in London.

The “Being Mary Jane” star arrived in dynamic fashion, wearing a neon green Valentino Haute Couture gown. The dramatic piece featured a large voluminous skirt, as well as a cutout ruched halter neck top with thin straps. However, her gown’s most dynamic accent came in the form of a flowing sheer tulle cape. Union played into her outfit’s mystical glamour, pairing it with layered diamond rings, bracelets and drop earrings by Messika — as well as sparkly pink eyeshadow and a towering rounded hairstyle.

For footwear, Union’s shoes weren’t visible. However, it’s highly likely the “Bring It On” actress chose a pair of coordinating pointed-toe pumps or strappy sandals, based on her usual red carpet shoes.
