Golden girl: Gabrielle Union looked absolutely stunning wearing a gold number in the pages of her November cover for Essence Magazine
Sparkle and shine in a metallic DVF maxi dress
Diane von Furstenberg is the queen of the wrap dress so we weren't too surprised that Gabrielle Union's floor length gown was created by the Belgian designer. The metallic frock was belted at the waist and had a long sleeve silhouette and a thigh high split.
We adore the slinky embellished dress that was pulled from the Fall 2016 runway and Gabrielle looks like she just stepped off the red carpet with her bombshell hair and dramatic choker necklace.
If you're as inspired by Gabby's look as we are, emulate her style with one of the golden options below. Our top pick is First & I's glittering kimono version that's on sale at ASOS for less than $60.
Team with some black stilettos and keep jewelry minimal to let the dress steal the show.
The Being Mary Jane actress showed off her cleavage and legs in a low-cut gold number featuring a thigh-high split in the shoot done by Dennis Leupold.
The frock featured sequins which looked like glitter as she matched it with a shiny metallic gold choker.
Her raven-coloured tresses were worn down in a middle-part flowing over her shoulders as she sported natural, complimentary make-up on her face topped off with shiny lip.
