2010 NAACP Image Awards Red Carpet
Is it us, or is this a totally different color than the runway version? Because we like the color on the runway version better. We weren’t sure we liked this on her at first glance, but the more we look at it, the more we like it.
Gorgeous color. The fit and the drape make her upper half look hot as hell and her lower half look a little busy. We finally came around to pockets on dresses, but you’re going to have a hard time convincing us that they’re a good idea for gowns.
Gabrielle Union in Pamella Roland Spring 2010
We kind of have a crush on her and are ready to declare her our newest fence-jumper. A fence-jumper is a person who is not of the gender you’re normally attracted to whom you nonetheless find insanely attractive, i.e., someone you’d jump the fence for. Like Angelina Jolie for straight women.
Anyway, she looks fabulous. Love the hair.
We hate her because every time we see her we’re reminded of how old we’re getting. On the other hand, she looks beautiful here – and tasteful, which is not always something she manages to do. Love the ombre effect on the skirt.
It’s a beautiful dress in a beautiful color, but that skirt is awfully flimsy. We guess it’s okay to pair a grecian hairstyle to a goddess gown, but it seems a little unimaginative to us. Still, she looks gorge.
We love that print and we love that she was bold enough to wear it on to the carpet, but the top of that dress is just way too much. It’s fighting the bottom. And honey, if the dress is so long that you have to unhook it from your heels while you’re getting your picture taken? That means the dress is too long.
It’s a pretty dress and she looks good, but it’s the same effect that happened with Kate Winslet last year. She got nominated for an Oscar and sand blasted all her unique quirkiness away to make herself look like an Oscar nominee.

She’s getting better at doing red carpet. She no longer looks like she’d rather be pulling out tree stumps with her 4×4. Love the dress and mostly love it on her, but we really wish she’d stay away from the clodhopper shoes. She’s not petite enough to get away with them in pictures.
