First of all, I am very proud of myself for not making a joke about how it was brought all year by Gabrielle Union and her stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis. But the fact remains that they¬†did bring it. She looked fab these last twelve months, including one coat that I’m probably going to covet until I shuffle off this mortal coil. Join me as we take a look back at the year in Gabrielle Union, which was very enjoyable indeed. (And there are a ton of looks on her stylist’s instagram that I wasn’t able to source photos of for whatever logistical reason, in case you’re looking for more to eyeball!)
