Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade's Daughter Kaavia Dressed Up as Adele for Halloween & She Absolutely Nailed It

We've seen loads of iconic Halloween costumes this year, from Kelly Ripa's Bridgerton-inspired 'fit to Mindy Kaling's homage to five female comedy legends.

But a surprise figure might take the prize for best costume of the year and it's none other than Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade's 2-year-old daughter, Kaavia James.

Like the rest of us, the “Shady Baby” showed that she's got Adele fever and she dressed like the British singer for Halloween. The iconic costume was shared to her mother's Instagram account, where Union said, “@adele @New album dropping soon.”

Kaavia was seen in a perfect recreation of the black-and-white Schiaparelli dress that Adele had shown off on her Instagram back in September. But it wasn't just the dress that was spot-on. The 2-year-old also rocked a similar pair of gold earrings with pearls, as well as the same tight bun hairstyle.

The costume was put together with the help of Union's go-to stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis, and the team also used Union's Flawless by GU hair products to give Kaavia her sleek 'do.

All of their hard work certainly paid off. Fellow celebs showed their amazement in the comments, like Normani, who said, “BEAUTYYYYYYYYYYYYYY” and Jill Marie Jones who said, “Too Cute.” Stylist Kikis jokingly commented, “Why am I like this.”

More photos from the shoot were posted to the account that Union and Wade run for Kaavia, and in these pics, we can see that there was another special contributor to the costume.

Actress Nicole Lyn and her boyfriend, Chad Easterling, got their son, Crosby Sparrow, in on the fun, and he dressed like Adele's boyfriend, Rich Paul. In the photos, Crosby wore a black sports coat to match the one worn by Paul in the original shoot, and they included a caption that said, “@richpaul x @adele Your Faves Faves. We Do This. @crosby_sparrow #IconicDuos.”

Now that's how you do a Halloween costume.
