Gabrielle Union—who utilizes natural light better than the rest of us—just had a movie premiere in her backyard. And, naturally, she showed off her outfit for the event on Instagram, saying: "When @dwyanewade surprised the family with a backyard screening of #Coming2America I had to put on my new favorite @autumn_adeigbo pants for the occasion! Make sure to watch #Coming2America on @primevideo March 5th @zamundaroyals #SupportBlackDesigners Photography by @ayannnamcknight."
A big motivation for Union's foray into backyard fashion has been to promote Black designers on her Instagram account. This most recent post continues that effort, as Union showcases those incredible Giada pants from Autumn Adeigbo, a designer who describes herself as "a proud, black female business owner...devoted to positively impacting the lives of women across cultures." Adeigbo designs "colorful, fashion-forward clothing for women who like to stand out in a crowd" and she was inspired by her Nigerian mother, "who made all of [Adeigbo's] clothes as a young girl."
Union smartly paired her graphic pants with solid-colored staples. Her black blazer and elegant silver necklace perfectly contrasts the more casual tank top and chunky black and white sneakers.
Designer Adeigbo showed her support for Union's outfit in the comments section, saying: "Gasp!! You’re so beautiful, no matter what you wear." Meanwhile, other friends showed their excitement for the Coming 2 America movie, like Tia Mowry, who said, "Ahhhh we are watching this Friday at the house :)"
While we wait for the release of Coming 2 America, Union's fashion is keeping us fully satisfied.
