Gabrielle Union Stuns in Sheer Black Dress for Gala Date with Husband Dwyane Wade

Whenever Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade attend an event together, we know they're going to bring their top fashion game.

The couple did not disappoint at their latest outing, when they attended The Academy Museum Of Motion Pictures Opening Gala. Their looks were shared on Union's Instagram, where she said, “Mom x Dad x Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Gala = Date Night.”

It appears from Union's photos that the couple had a little backyard photoshoot prior to the event. The Being Mary Jane actress was seen in a piece from the Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2021 Couture collection and we couldn't get over how gorgeous she looked. The dress featured a neckline adorned with silver jewels and a black bodysuit cut with a deep V that was covered with layers of sheer black material. She paired the couture with a pair of Perfect Sandal heels in black from Sarah Flint.

Meanwhile, Wade looked suave in a black tuxedo from Gucci, which he wore open with a white mesh tank visible underneath. He dressed up the 'fit with a shiny silver necklace courtesy of Tiffany & Co.

Union's outfit was styled by Thomas Christos Kikis, while Wade was styled by Jason Bolden. Larry Jarah Sims constructed Union's braided bun hairstyle, and he used the actress's haircare line, Flawless, to achieve the look.

A full view of Union's ensemble could be seen in another post, which she captioned, “Mama G.” It was clear we weren't the only ones obsessed with Union's outfit. Take actress Laci Mosley's comment, which said, “I’m filing a lawsuit for the damages you just did to my neck!!”

Then, when the couple arrived at the gala, they were seen walking the red green carpet hand-in-hand.
