In the classic 90s teen movie, “10 Things I Hate About You,” Gabrielle Union played Alex Macks (thats Larisa Oleyniks, if you want to get technical) BFF and delivered one of the films most iconic lines: “I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?”
Were still mulling over the answer to that deeply profound query, but in the meantime, lets turn our attention toward a moment of appreciation for Unions 2018 red carpet style.
At a press event to promote her new thriller, “Breaking In,” on Monday, the actress/miraculously ageless being showed her color-mixing prowess in a royal-blue-and-orange smock dress with navy pockets and a pink trim. But that wasnt the only color play going on: She paired the piece from Peter Pilottos Fall 2017 collection with mustard-yellow heels and a mint-green pedicure.
With the assist from her go-to stylist Thomas Christos, Unions look is far from subtle — but on Union, its utter spring perfection.
The actress isnt one to shy away from experimentation when it comes to her personal style, and that extends to her beauty looks, too. For this particular event, she wore voluminous, shaggy, brushed out-curls (by hairstylist Larry Sims).
Beneath the perfectly piece-y bangs — epiphany: thats how to wear bangs if youre curly haired! — makeup artist Fiona Stiles created a subtly shimmery charcoal smoky eye, and then finished the look with a rosy nude lip color.
One things for sure: This look has us feeling far more than just “whelmed.”
