Gabrielle Union Rocks a Splatter-Paint Bomber Jacket in Bday Post for Queen Latifah

Gabrielle Union celebrated the birthday of her pal, Queen Latifah, with a throwback pic on Instagram.

"Happy Birthday to my ace @queenlatifah so many adventures, so many antics! May we have many many more!!! Love u lady," wrote Union.

The shot of Union and Latifah was taken in 2019 at the On the Record Speakeasy and Club at Park MGM. The stars were photographed at an afterparty hosted by Janet Jackson, who had launched her concert residency, "Metamorphosis," that night. The Las Vegas celebration was attended by other notable celebs, like Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba and Yvette Nicole Brown.

In the snap, Union is seen with her arm wrapped around Latifah, wearing a colorful, splatter-paint style bomber jacket and booty shorts set. The outfit, which includes black and white edging, is accentuated by Union's golden hoop earrings and high ponytail. Latifah's outfit is a black button-up with matching pants.

The two actresses worked together on the film The Perfect Holiday in 2007, and the pair have been friends ever since. Just last year, the two united to raise money for the American Lung Association in an effort to help those affected by COVID-19. Meanwhile, the stars have been dedicated to their own projects, with Union promoting her beauty line, Flawless by Gabrielle Union, and Latifah filming her popular new series, The Equalizer.

We'll be awaiting the next birthday post so we can revisit more fashion moments from Union.
