The Bad Boys 2 star has been out and about this past week and has been documenting it all on her Instagram page. In a post on Saturday, Union donned a Christopher John Rogers fuschia suit and Sergio Rossi heels. The star’s look was for the night’s Black Design Collective 1st Scholarship Tribute to honor Academy-Award winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter. According to the Daily Mail, the event was held at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Union reportedly had a special connection to the Black Panther costume designer, as they worked together on Being Mary Jane.
“Those fittings in your home, where you welcomed us in, you took care of us, you empowered us, you protected us,’ Union said, per Daily Mail. “Ruth is in very high demand, so she set the look on Mary Jane, and she went to go to do Selma, she empowered the next black woman. Every year on our show, we have made sure to empower and protect black creatives, and it started with Ruth E. Carter.”
