Gabrielle Union looked perfect at Essence’s 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards Gala wearing a sophisticated and sparkling black dress.

The actress dazzled in a sparkling knee-length gown that fit her frame. The sequins spread evenly across the simple black long-sleeve gown made the dress seem dipped in diamonds or to some, stars. Crystals framed her waist, wrists, shoulders, and neck to make the dress seem even that more elegant. She donned simple black peek-a-boo toe pumps with a few diamonds dazzling her fingers. She brings a pop of color with her small Tiffany Blue clutch to pull the ensemble together.
