As the above photo should indicate to you, Gabrielle Union is here to serve you some BOLDNESS. If you’re concerned that the outrageously fabulously up do might be just a bit much, trust this:
Miss Union understands the concept of proportions. She knows what she’s doing.
We’d say that Whoville hair is EXACTLY how a dress like this should be styled. If you’re not willing to go big with a gown like this, why pick a gown like this in the first place? She looks spectacular and she’s working that color like a champ. We wish we could say we love the chiffon cape, but it seems like more trouble than it’s worth. Without someone on duty to make sure it falls just so all night, it’s just going to look like it’s hanging off her, and since celebrities don’t generally employ ladies in waiting for this sort of task, they’re better off leaving the capes behind.
