The actress is truly a standout as she was spotted at the 23rd Annual LA Times Festival of Books at the University of Southern California.


Gabrielle Union promoted her New York bestseller book We’re Going to Need More Wine: Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True. AmoMama gleaned details from Daily Mail.

The mother of Bad Boys II star signed copies of her literature while her fans patiently waited. She donned an eye-catching printed, colorful dress from Mara Hoffman that belied her age. The midi dress featured a scoop neckline and bell sleeves. She paired the vibrant frock with a set of navy heels.


The 45-year-old wife of basketball star Dwayne Wade highlighted her eyes with earth-toned shadows. She also braided her hair and wore it down.

While her first book includes funny, true-to-life stories, it actually has a serious tone in it, too, that are the strongest essays as well. She chronicled a searing moment in her life when she was raped at a Payless shoe store in college and she also talks about the challenges of raising black children in America today.

The book tackles a range of experiences and lays herself bare with such courage, wisdom, and humor.

Also present at the event were other celebrities who authored some books. Vivica A. Fox signed autographs of Every Day I’m Hustling while Danica McKellar promoted her book, Ten Magic Butterflies. The Hallmark beauty stepped out with her husband Scott Svelosky.
