Her blazer also had wide black lapels and a double-breasted silhouette. Meanwhile, the slit added a sultry touch to her look and showed off her mile-long legs.
Gabrielle’s beauty look was flawless, as usual, with minimal makeup and center-parted hair to keep the focus on her glittering outfit.

The 38th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards is among the award-winning bodies that featured gender-neutral film and television acting categories.
“We’re thrilled to join the other festivals and award shows that are already moving to celebrate great acting without reference to gender,” Josh Welsh, the president of Film Independent, said.
He continued, “We’re also happy to welcome non-binary performers into the Spirit Awards without forcing them to choose to identify as male or female.”

This is a big deal for the performing artists, who are members of the LGBTQIA+ community, as they don’t have to compromise their chosen identities in order to fit into binary categories.
It’s also a big deal for Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, who are parents of a transgender daughter and proud allies of the LGBTQIA+ community.
