Gabrielle Union wore Jimmy Choo Kasha platform sandals to a advanced screening of ‘Being Mary Jane’ held at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago. They’re from an Award Season collection featuring gold ribbed leather and black satin details. We’ve also seen the Kasha on Heidi Klum.  You can shop Fall ’13 and new Cruise ’14 styles at Jimmy Choo & Jimmy Choo UK.

She’s currently on a promotional tour promoting her new drama television series. Gabrielle posed wearing an elephant grey felted wool cap sleeve cocktail dress with front seam detailing – you can find a similar style by Victoria Beckham. Gabrielle left her down worn in a curly side-part and also accessorized with a pyramid bangle.

‘Being Mary Jane’ premieres January 7, 2014, on BET. Check out more shoes spotted on Gabrielle.


Gabrielle Union wore Giuseppe Zanotti t-strap sandals to Entertainment Weekly’s Pre-Emmy Party in Hollywood. They’re from the Spring 2013 collection featuring slim gold tone bars and black ostrich-printed leather.

We’ve also seen these on Solange KnowlesRita Ora, Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio. This style is sold out but you can shop the latest designs at Giuseppe ZanottiBergdorf GoodmanNeiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue.

This is the second recent event where Gabrielle’s boyfriend Dwyane Wade is better dressed than her (wearing a beautiful green Valentino suit and Zanotti tassel loafers). I love Gabrielle’s shoes but her Pierre Balmain viscose jersey blue dress is unflattering & frumpy.

Other accessories included Jamie Wolf Bohemian Pear Shape diamond earrings and Classic Long Leaf chain necklace plus several Band is a Band rings by Graziela Gems.

Gabrielle Union arrived at the 2013 Venice Film Festival wearing Prada platform sandals. These shoes are from the Fall 2013 collection featuring gold & black satin straps and metallic gold leather. They’re available online in black/gold/red at Saks Fifth Avenue.

She attended day 3 of the festival wearing a Prada white pleated chiffon dress with a gathered waist, short peplum and v-neck. This dress is about 100 times better than her red carpet Miu Miu frock. Gabrielle also carried a Prada black textured leather bowler bag and accessorized with Carrera sunglasses.
