Gabrielle Union loves Lorraine Schwartz at BET Awards

Gabrielle Union dazzled in her Marc Jacobs gown on the red carpet of the BET Awards on Sunday (26Jun16).

Gabrielle Union was given a new lease of life in her sparkling jewellery at the BET Awards on Sunday evening (26Jun16).

The 43-year-old actress took to the red carpet in Los Angeles in a stunning red silky one-sleeved gown by Marc Jacobs, which was covered in white shimmering detailing and featured a thigh-high slit on the skirt. But for Gabrielle it was her accessories that brought the look together as she gave a shout-out to jewellery designer Lorraine Schwartz on Instagram, along with thanking her style team.

"LOVED this @marcjacobs gown!! And the @lorraineschwartz jewels gave me so much life!! Thank you @larryjarahsims @fionastiles @thomaschristos #BETAwards2016 (sic)," she gushed alongside a photo of herself wearing dangling earrings matching the shade of her dress and silver leaf rings, matching with the embellishment on the gown's neckline.

Gabrielle's personal stylist Thomas Christos also shared how proud he was with his client's finished look with several snaps on the social networking app, including one of the star sitting in the back of a car showing off her bling.

Taking a different approach to the red carpet on Sunday evening was Alicia Keys, who turned up completely make-up free. The singer's bare skin shone in the spotlight, while her tresses were wrapped up in a retro-style silver scarf.

Keeping up with the casual look, the fresh-faced beauty wore a plain wet-look jumpsuit with winged sleeves and gold studs around the waist, though she made sure to add a touch of glamour with her gold hoop earrings.

She took to the stage during the event to perform her new single In Common, swapping her one-piece for black leather trousers, a black top and bright orange jacket.

Fellow music star Mya was a pop of colour in her yellow two-piece outfit, consisting of a top with a built in train and high-waisted trousers. Her hair was slicked back, while a gold chain necklace and gold earrings added to the summer-inspired ensemble.
