Gabrielle Union brought splendor and charm to the 2021 Billboard Music Awards.
Ahead of the event, the author of ‘Shady Baby’ and the better half of Dwyane Wade killed the red carpet with her white gown outfit.
There is no prize-winning show without the solid presence of Gabrielle Union. Gabrielle, 48, was selected to present at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards on May 23, and before the festivities at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the star of 10 Things I Hate About You decided to walk on the red carpet.
Gabrielle’s Red Carpet Outfit
This red-carpet walk was a chance for Gabrielle to make up for lost time due to Covid pandemic, and she was not gonna disappoint the viewers.
She came to the show wearing a white sleeveless dress. This magnificent dress, with its sharp cord, allowed her to show off her beautiful skin. Gabrielle embellished this dress with 23 carats BVLGARI diamond earrings, bracelet and rings.
In early May, Gabrielle added to her growing bibliography by publishing Shady Baby, a picture book collaboration with her husband, Dwyane Wade.
The book is based on their two-year-old daughter, Kaavia James, entitled “Shady Baby,” who was recently given her first Valentino bag by her mother.
When her mother asked if she wanted to “keep it back for safety,” Kaavia insisted “no,” before saying she wanted to “keep it.” She even fell to the ground pretending to sleep with the little V Logo Valentino bag, indicating that she did not want to be separated from it.
“She’s very strong willed,” Gabrielle told PEOPLE when she and Dwyane, 39, talked about their book. “People see themselves in Kaav,” added Wade. “Some days you don’t feel like doing your hair. And some days you want to give people shade.” Gabrielle explained that shade is Kaavia’s superpower, and that the main takeaway of the book is she’s free to be this amazing, dynamic, shady at times, loving at times Black little girl when the world has not been so kind to Black girls and women.”
Gabrielle was just one of the big names nominated for awards at the 2021 BBMAs.
The show, hosted by Nick Jonas, also featured Cynthia Erivo, Chelsea Handler, Dixie D’Amelio, Henry Golding, Kathryn Hahn, Kelsea Ballerini, Lena Waithe, Leslie Odom, Jr., Lil Rel Howery, Padma Lakshmi, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Swizz Beatz, and Tina Knowles-Lawson. Viewers will be set to star in AJR, Duran Duran, Doja Cat on SZA, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on Sounds Of Blackness Featuring Ann Nesby, Jonas Brothers with Marshmello, Karol G, The Weeknd, and more.
