The 2018 Academy Awards might be 24 hours behind us, but the buzz and the beauty is still fresh in our heads. Everyone looked so stunning and so radiant and it really was a ground-breaking event. We had Kobe Bryant, the Basketball legend win his first Oscar, and Jordan Peele became the first black man to win an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, for his 2017 break-through movie GET OUT. The 2018 Oscars were great and will definitely be remembered! Speaking of Basketball, Mrs. Gabrielle Union-Wade stole some amazing moments on the Red Carpet and got everyone online buzzing about how flawless she looked. Must be that African-American butter right?! See more of her radiance after the cut. 

Gabrielle looked absolutely stunning! She captioned her look on her Instagram "Put a bow on that ishhhhh". If by ishhhh, she is referring to her svelte, slender, sexy, non-aging body, then we all nod in agreement. Gabrielle has everything going for her in this picture dont you think? Great hair, amazing dress and the glow of two Egyptian goddesses sitting under the sun. She is bronzed out and glowing in all the right places. This is how you glam up for the Oscars. Dear brown skin girl, take note. 

 Her beautiful nude and silver glitter dress is by Prada. She kept her accessorizing to the minimal with some hand jewelry and a black clutch purse. Simplicity they say is elegance!

Up close and perfectly cut, diamonds they say are a girls best friend.

Red Carpets can be tricky when it comes to beauty shots, complexion, tanning or oiling the skin. The lights, Camera, angles and action might just meet you at a grave angle... One bad shot, and all that "i woke up like this" feeling, not to mention the effort by your glam team, starts to feel mediocre and ridiculous. Personally, i think its always good to go for a clean, natural and flawless finish. Beauty is really about amplifying what you are already working with and not a total transformation into someone or something else. Just simply looking at Gabrielle on the carpet, it is safe to say she had one of the best and most flawless finishes for the entire event. 

Gabrielle was also working the no make up look like a superstar. Her hair was parted to the side and wrapped up into a low bun, just enough bareness to show off that bronzed shoulder and neckline. Gabrielle you make the Oscar statue look pale.

What do you think of Gabrielle's Oscar/Vanity Fair Red Carpet look?
