Gabrielle Union Rocks Edgy, All-Black Silk Ensemble on Instagram

Gabrielle Union never needs an excuse to get all dressed up (but whenever she does, we make sure to pay attention).

The Bring It On star showed off an edgy, monochromatic 'fit in a new series of photos on Instagram. Throughout the slideshow, Union poses in a black, pleated silk jacket and trousers set from Cong Tri with a matching bandeau underneath. The ensemble was accessorized with a togo matte alligator Birkin bag from Hermès. And while we can't see what type of shoes she's wearing, it looks like Union is sporting black flats to match as well.

In her caption, Union was feeling the chic outfit, but she ended with a comically harsh reality, saying, “Y’all, my curls are flourishing. Got a cute outfit on. I’ve secured the bag and thee bag. I am moisturized. Knees, knuckles, ankles and elbows glistening. I’m fresh off a meditation and nobody can tell me diddly. So, basically I’ve got about 15 min before @kaaviajames has me looking like harry scary.”

Union turned to her go-to stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis, to help put the ensemble together, while her frequent makeup artist, Tasha Reiko Brown, applied the glam with N°1 de Chanel.

Meanwhile, the actress's short, curly ’do was constructed by her hairstylist Larry Jarah Sims, who used her haircare line, Flawless By GU.

Fellow celebs were obsessed with Union's ensemble, like actress and director Numa Perrier, who said, “ITS GIVING BOSS!!!” Octavia Spencer commented fire emojis and said, “Serving!!!!” Fashion designer Autumn Adeigbo loved the caption too, adding, “Touts her own beauty with no lie detected then ends with humility. Are you human? #ornah ♥♥♥.”

We hope you got to rock this stunning outfit for more than 15 minutes, Gabrielle.
