Gabrielle Union Shows Off Hypnotic Red Versace Dress as She Embarks on Book Tour

Migos once said: “Versace, Versace, I love it.” And now we know that Gabrielle Union can relate to those lyrics.

Always the fashion icon, the Bring It On star was seen walking the streets of New York City in a stunning new dress from Versace. The form-fitting gown (which looks so shiny we could swear it was made out of latex) is covered in the red and blue La Greca print, which is part of the brand's Fall/Winter '21 collection. Union coupled the hypnotic dress with a pair of black platform loafers and she added two shiny anklets as well. Meanwhile, her hair was pulled back in a tight bun.

The runway-ready ensemble was shared on the account of her stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis, who said, “VERSACE,” with two red heart and fire emojis. Union casually responded to the post and commented, “Oh hiiiii.”

Fellow stylist Jason Bolden commented, “Damnnnnnn,” while drag star Dan Clay commented, “Ok WOW!”

The look was also shared on the account of Union's frequent makeup artist, Tasha Reiko Brown, who offered all the details on Union's beauty products from the shot. She said, “Gabrielle Union in NYC. Perfect dress to use the new warm toned Chanel Fall 2021 shades to create a 90’s Nudes supermodel look on face: Rouge Allure Velvet ‘LowKey.’ Stylo Ombre ‘Contour Beige. ’Chanel Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder Deep Bronze. #YouGotAnythingStronger press.”

Union brought out the Versace couture during a press event for her new book, You Got Anything Stronger?. The actress's autobiography was only released a couple days ago and she has been busy promoting the book, which she mentioned on her Instagram saying, “Sh*t is getting real. My new book, You Got Anything Stronger?, is OUT TODAY… and my book tour starts TONIGHT to serve up fresh realness. Link in bio for my book + tour tickets.”

Keep the book tour looks coming, Gabrielle!
