In June 2016, “10 Things I Hate About You” actress Gabrielle Union supported her husband as he launched two new Jaguar models in Miami, Florida.

She married her NBA star husband, Dwyane Wade, in 2014. They met in 2007 while cohosting a sponsored Super Bowl party.

17 years earlier, she starred as cheerleader Chastity Church in the 1999 American teen romantic comedy film 10 Things I Hate About You.

While she played the high school friend of Larisa Oleynik’s character Bianca Stratford, Gabrielle Union was 25 years old when the movie was filmed during the summer of 1998. The movie was released on March 31, 1999, when she was 26 years old.

“We spent all of our downtime together and loved it, [and] perhaps I got some fake IDs,” Union said about filming the movie in an interview with ET in 2019. “It was just such a special, special time, and I could never recreate that.”

The film also starred Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Larisa Oleynik. David Krumholtz, who played geek Michael Eckman in the movie, later reflected on how much fun they had filming Heath Ledger’s first American movie.

“Work was fun, and after work we were inseparable. We laughed, we partied, we rapped. Joseph Gordon-Levitt turned me on to Phish, and I turned him on to Wu-Tang. Gabrielle Union had us in stitches, Julia Stiles brought her own brand of Soho-bred artistic intellectualism (at only 17, mind you), Larisa Oleynik’s laughter filled the room, and we marveled at the tonedness of Andrew Keegan’s muscles (a great sport!),” David Krumholtz wrote in Vulture in 2015.

The same year, Gabrielle starred in the 1999 American teen romantic comedy film She’s All That.

The trendy (and affordable!) piece featured a plunging, grommet-adorned neck and waistline, as well as subtle cutouts at the arms.

Gabrielle accessorized her look with an embroidered yellow clutch and a pair of metallic perforated wedges from Prada.

Prada always comes up with the most interesting wedges styles, even though we have to pay homage to Chanel for carrying out the gun-themed heels first.
