Gabrielle Union Looks Like a Swan Princess in This Gorgeous Prada Dress with a Plunging Neckline

Gabrielle Union knows that you don't have to be getting married to steal the show in a white dress.

The Bring It On actress gave us major swan princess vibes in the form-fitting gown from Prada that she wore to the Billboard Music Awards. The custom-made design was covered in sequins and included a white Prada plaque on the shoulder. However, the highlight of the stunning dress was the rounded, plunging neckline in the front.

Union shared the outfit on her Instagram account and in typical fashion, she had a clever caption to go with it, saying, “Stay Ready, So You Don’t Have To Get Ready. @prada @bulgari [Photography by] @byjamiebruce #BillboardMusicAwards2021.”

When Union walked the red carpet, she paired the haute couture with an alabaster pink leather tote (also from Prada) and she topped it all off with some Bulgari diamonds.

Union has a trusted team when it comes to her styling, and she used some of her favorites to bring together this paper white ensemble. Frequent collaborator Thomas Christos Kikis styled the outfit, while pal Larry Jarah Sims gave Union her wavy 'do, using the star's Flawless line of hair products.

Meanwhile, Union's makeup was done by Fiona Stiles—who used a Dermaflash Luxe skin prep and Armani beauty products to give the 48-year-old actress that glow—while her nails were designed by Thuy Nguyen.

Although the Being Mary Jane star always knocks it out of the park, fellow celebs were still blown away. Actress Taraji P Henson said, “WERK,” while Regina King called her “Gorgeous!!!” British model and designer Leomie Anderson commented, “Everything sitting CORRECT.” Meanwhile, her husband, Dwyane Wade, was just one of many who replied with a series of fire emojis.

Please tell us awards season isn't coming to a close, because we need more outfits like this from Union.
