Gabrielle Union shows how to wear platforms on the red carpet. The “Cheaper by the Dozen” star attended the Los Angeles premiere for her film yesterday ahead of tomorrow’s release. Some of the other celebrity guests included Kenya Barris, the producer of the movie, Erika Christensen and Zach Braff — Union’s on-camera husband. On the carpet, she posed with her family, including husband Dwyane Wade and their 3-year-old daughter together, Kaavia James Union Wade — who wore the same outfit as Union — and her 14-year-old stepdaughter Zaya Wade.
Shoe-wise, Union had on a pair of black platform sandals by Andrea Wazen set on 6-inch stiletto heels that added some height to her look. The brand’s Antigone heels had a transparent toe strap paired with a matching ankle strap accented with a black buckle. Also, the shoes had a black heel strap that added extra security.
Her black and white Altuzarra dress featured a plunging bralette and had an eye-catching scallop design. On the lower half, she wore a matching high-waisted skirt that incorporated the same intricate detailing with a floor-length hemline.
For accessories, she wore diamond-encrusted bracelets paired with matching diamond earrings and rings that all brought the glitz to her attire.
Union’s essential sartorial aesthetic consists of sophisticated and trendy garments that place an emphasis on construction. For example, recently, she wore a brown knitted minidress with white sneakers for a sporty look while she strutted in an Instagram video. And we’ve also seen her wear a black leather blazer with chunky loafers for a modern outfit that had a casual tone.
The “Being Mary Jane” actress has also ventured into the fashion industry and collaborated with New York & Company to create a capsule collection of inclusive and body positivity clothing back in 2017, and it returned in 2021.
