Gabrielle Union Brings Celestial Style in Velvet Fendi Dress & Hidden Heels to Gotham Awards 2022

Gabrielle Union attended the 2022 Gotham Awards in New York at Cipriani Wall Street dressed in Fendi. The actress wore a black dress from the Italian brand’s spring 2022 couture show, which was inspired by ancient Rome and the “celestial power.”

The sweeping high-neck velvet gown was complete with a dramatic vignette of a Roman soldier sporting a brooding gaze on the front. Alongside the gown, the “Strange World” actress wore a diamond-encrusted Tiffany & Co. bangle in silver accompanied by a matching dazzling ring.
