Gabrielle Union shows how to wear platforms on the red carpet. The ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’ star attended the Los Angeles premiere for his film yesterday ahead of tomorrow’s release. Other celebrity guests included Kenya Barris, the film’s producer, Erika Christensen and Zach Braff, Union’s on-camera husband. On the carpet, she posed with her family, her daughters Kaavia James Union Wade and Zaya Wade, as well as her husband, Dwyane Wade.
Footwear-wise, Union wore a pair of black platform sandals by Andrea Wazen set on 6-inch stiletto heels that added 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. Additionally, the shoes had a black heel strap which added extra security.
Her black and white Altuzarra dress featured a plunging bralette and an eye-catching scalloped pattern. On the lower half, she wore a matching high-waisted skirt that incorporated the same intricate details with a floor-length hemline.
For accessories, she wore diamond encrusted bracelets paired with matching diamond earrings and rings which all brought the glitz to her outfit.
Union’s essential sartorial aesthetic consists of sophisticated, on-trend clothing that emphasizes construction. For example, recently she wore a brown knit mini dress with white sneakers for a sporty look as she strutted around in an Instagram video. And we also saw her wear a black leather blazer with chunky loafers for a modern outfit with a casual tone.
The “Being Mary Jane” actress also ventured into the fashion industry and collaborated with New York & Company to create a capsule collection of inclusive clothing and body positivity in 2017, and she returned in 2021.
