When it comes to couples fashion, there’s a fine line between coordinating and looking like you’re on your way to a Halloween party in a coordinated costume. But it’s safe to say Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade never toe this line. The actress and her former NBA husband always let their personal style preferences shine—whether on the red carpet or in the wild (the latter happens regularly; the two are often street styled together). 2022 was an especially fruitful year for the duo in terms of fashion: from silver Versace looks at the Met Gala in May to a family affair at the premiere of Disney’s Strange World in Los Angeles, they’ve cemented their status even further in the celebrity style canon. It all came to a crescendo of chicness back in June, when the pair coordinated in Prada tanks for the label’s spring 2023 menswear show. And in 2023, the looks keep getting better and better. Below, relive some of Union and Wade’s greatest-hits looks.

For their first public outing in 2023, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade both cut chic figures at the season three premiere of Apple’s series Truth Be Told in West Hollywood. The two wore Prada: Union, in a beaded column dress; and Wade, in an all-black suit with a branded black turtleneck underneath.

...Later that same night, Wade kept his Prada getup on, while Union switched looks for this menswear-inspired oversized blazer and jeans.

While attending Travis Scott and 50 Cent’s performance at Wayne & Cynthia Boich’s Art Basel Party on December 2, 2022 in Miami Beach Union donned a glittering Valentino shift, while Wade opted for one of the couple’s favorite designers, Prada.

Ah, the Met Gala—a chance to gleam. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade certainly shined bright for the Costume Institute’s celebration of “In America: An Anthology of Fashion” on May 2, 2022 in New York City.

Union debuted one of Loewe’s most surreal (and subversive) fall 2022 looks while out in Manhattan with her husband, whose relaxed white tank and sneakers were elevated by a black, satin-like matching set.

We love when Wade pulls out a print or two—and Union in Connor Ives is just heavenly.

Wade wore a Baroque-style Gucci tuxedo and horsebit loafers for the Vanity Fair Oscars after party, while Union shimmered in a brown, long-sleeve Valentino gown.

To celebrate Dwyane Wade’s 40th birthday on January 17, the duo opted for yet another matching moment. But even in these looks, their respective fashion sensibilities still shine through.

For the Cheaper by the Dozen premiere in Hollywood, Union dipped into a knit mermaid-like two piece from Altuzarra. The couple’s daughter Kaavia James attended in a matching look for a chic mommy-and-me moment.

During Milan Fashion Week, Union’s stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis, pulled a white mini dress from Prada Linea Rossa 1999, formerly Prada Sport for the star. But months prior to that, Union and Wade were hitting the slopes in their preferred ski gear: Prada Linea Rossa jackets, gloves, and goggles.

Wine night called for two shades of red for the stylish couple.
