Gabrielle Union in Bill Blass (x 2)

Posted on April 06, 2012

Apparently, Miss Gabrielle is having both a Bill Blass moment and something of a citrus moment.


Gabrielle Union attends the ‘Think Like a Man’ screening in NYC in Bill Blass.

She is a total fence-jumper for us. We has a crush. But not so much that we can’t be bitches when we need to. Love the color and the shape, but the fit in the bust is not as good as it could be. We love the shoes with this dress (and we don’t normally love that kind of shoe), but we don’t think the black clutch really serves the look. Something beaded and colorful would have been more springtime.

But wait! There’s more Gab U citrus-y goodness!


Gabrielle Union attends the premiere of “Think Like a Man” in Atlanta in Bill Blass.

Different dress; same mistake. The bust isn’t fitted as well as it could be.  Aside from that, no complaints at all. She looks sunny, happy, sexy and fun. Love the cocktail ring.

    Both great dresses.  Fit isn’t 100% perfect, but when you look that sunny and happy and at ease with yourself then it’s easy to overlook the nitpicks.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    How does she not age??

    • sweetestsith

       I don’t know, but she is incredibly hot. I’ve had a huge crush on her ever since Bring it On. Love the hair with the yellow dress, but prefer the red/orange dress. Even with the weird side=boob thing going on.

      • muzan-e

        Years ago, mid-channel-scroll, we hit Bring It On. I jumped off the couch and squeaked at my husband: “Oh Em Gee! Watch this bit! This girl is a lioness and she eats Kirsten Dunst alive! Superstar or what?!” I get a tiny bit hysterical about my girl-crushes, admittedly, but – 

        So vindicated. *g*

    • Black don’t crack.  Our african american sisters and their melanin!  Gorgeous she is. 

    • AlexisPayne

      I know! She is so gorgeous and she looks the same as she did in She’s All That (ya, I referenced it).

    •  Black don’t crack!! The blessings of melanin.

    • Kristy Evans

       Black don’t crack! See: Halle Berry, Stacey Dash (seriously though, she must be a vampire).

      • NC_Meg

        I was about to say the same thing! Gabrielle Union doesn’t age but Stacey Dash must be immortal. It’s ridiculous.

      • Izandra

        I just looked up her age on IMDB and I cannot believe she was 29 when she did Clueless!!  A full decade older than Alicia Silverstone! Holy cow.

  • The yellow dress is divine! And yes, the pairing of the neon green cocktail ring really works.

  • It seems to my untrained eye (at least in the orange dress) that that’s the way the bust was designed to fit — sort of loosey-goosey, to make the heterosexuals in the room (if any) think, “Am I going to see Gabrielle Union’s side-boob right now? Am I?”

    And maybe I’m wrong, but I really don’t see anything wrong with the bust in the second one. It makes her bust look a bit fuller, maybe, but I don’t see anything wrong with that. You work that fashion illusion, girl!

    • I thought that too – that the orange one was meant to fall that way…

    • Alisa Rivera

      I don’t think the bust in the orange dress is that bad. She doesn’t have baby head boobs, so it doesn’t look vulgar.

  • Yes, something is not right with the fit on the orange/red one.  But her skin is so beautiful in both these colors, I am inclined to love both looks anyway.  Jennifer Hudson – take note – face same shade as rest of body….

  • gdougs

    Let me just put it out there (because i just googled it out of curiosity) that this bitch is 39 years old. 39 YEARS OLD PEOPLE. 


    • JasmineAM

      I wonder when she gave her soul to Satan?

      • Ms_Flyover

        Or had the portrait in the attic painted.

    • MoHub

      And you see 39 as old?

      • Alisa Rivera

        It’s not that 39 is old, it’s that she looks about 15 years younger.

      • gdougs

        Yes, exactly what Alisa said. 39 is by no means old, but the fact that she looks so much younger is amazing.

    • Verascity

      It’s almost terrifying. I’m 26 and I was pretty much assuming she was close to my age until I read that.

  • carolie_king

    Bay Area shout-out to the local girl.  Love her.  I think she has normal-sized boobs in a place where designers make dresses for plastic surgery victims, but that’s not to excuse.  She can afford a tailor.

    • She’s my high school’s most famous alumni!

      • mountainFashionista

         Alumna   🙂

        • I was going to write alumna, but I thought someone would get on my case for being pedantic! Haha, can’t win.

          • mountainFashionista

             I tried to let it slide, but have Latin in my DNA (and probably OCD, from the looks of things)!

            I’m glad you’re not offended — the smiley worked, huh?

  • Oh My Gah. I love that yellow dress.  I think the orange one is wonky because the put her tit tape on incorrectly on her right side. Because the left tit and fit looks great.  

  • marilyn

    Beautiful dresses, but you are right aout the bust.  Also-the back of the yellow dress is not lined on top, which makes it look unfinished.  I am not a fan of the crossbar across the back.  That is not Gabrielle’s issue, but BB’s.  She looks fantastic.

    • mountainFashionista

       I thought the back of the yellow one looked unfinished, too.  Otherwise, she’s divine!

  • In_Stitches

    Why are they shooting at the “Think Like a Man” premiere from the ground?  She looks like a gigantress at that angle…

    Where’s Josh Hutcherson?  It was his golden opportunity.

  • Terence Ng

    Well, glad to know that I’m not going to die of scurvy any time soon.

  • Love them both!

  • MilaXX

    Agreed on all points.  Apparently orange, citrus and neon colors are in for the Spring/Summer. It should be interesting to see how this translates to the RC.

  • MilaXX

    Oh please do a Men of Think like a Man post. That’s a fine looking cast.

  • Lilithcat

    But not so much that we can’t be bitches when we need to. 

    And that is why we love you.

  • I love that first one on her. She’s always been a girl crush of mine.

  • JasmineAM

    What a refreshing thing to see bright colors on the RC instead of the masses of nude-y, neutral outfits!

  • PeggyOC

    The cameraman working this event should start following Josh Hutcherson around.  She looks like a giantess.

    • Alisa Rivera

      Ha! Poor, wee Josh.

  • Now THAT is one nice drink of lemonade.

  • Laurie Bergman

    So beautiful…she just OWNS that yellow dress.  And it’s accessorized perfectly.

  • julnyes

    She looks lovely (as usual)

  • alyce1213

    Now that’s just beautiful!  A sunny woman for this bright sunny day.

  • DiverK

    Love the orange look!

  • colleenjanel

    She’s not wearing white!!! Hallelujah!!  Girl really lurves her white dresses. So nice to see color!

  • guest2visits

    Like the first dress much better; even with the slight over exposure.
    Sorry, but that color of screaming yellow is a SCREAMING headache to view. Maybe any other shade.

  • betty language

    just out of curiosity, what kind of shoes DO you like, by the way?? 🙂

  • She is so hot, love the orange against her skin

  • giiiirrrr

    Cocktail rings rock.  They can be a genius way to break up the matchy.

  • kimmeister

    The ankle straps look like they’re digging into her ankles a bit, no?  She is rocking those shades though.  I could never pull off those particular shades.

  • Agreed on all counts including the girl crush. She is just the cutest thing. Lovely.

  • butterflysunita

    I love those bright colors on her.  Werq it, girl!

  • formerlyAnon

    Gorgeous. That first dress, especially. And I usually count way off for side-boob and potential side-boob.

  • I will always love her for her Oprah interview. She’s amazing. And drop dead gorgeous.

  • I love that yellow. I can’t stand her (long story), but I do love those dresses. 

  • Susan Crawford

    WERQ it, Miss Union! Those colors are fantabulous, and even the need for a bit of a fit issue bustline-wise, you look sexy, relaxed and gorgeous.
