Gabrielle Union Goes Mod in Bubble Skirt and $98 PVC Mules at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2022

Gabrielle Union went futuristic in Santa Monica for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday.

While presenting Favorite Breakout Artist to Olivia Rodrigo with singer Charlie Puth, the “Cheaper by the Dozen” actress wore a silver cutout top by Armani. The long-sleeved number featured a slightly cropped silhouette with a wavy texture — which twisted at the front, creating a row of mini cutouts. The top was paired with a similarly toned bubble miniskirt with large side pockets. Completing Union’s ensemble was a shiny beaded gold necklace and delicate earrings.

For footwear, Union’s ensemble was boosted with a set of sleek heeled mules from Aldo. Styled by Thomas Christos Kikis, the $98 Ybendaviel style featured black square-toed rubber soles with transparent PVC straps. Completing the pair were sharp stiletto heels totaling 4 inches in height, giving Union’s metallic look a modern sheen. Polishing off the set was a trendy anklet that matched her necklace, as well.
