Gabrielle Union is known for her experimental style, and her latest ensemble is no exception.

Yesterday, the actress took to Instagram to show off an ultra-sleek and super-sexy look (curated by her stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis) that included an oversized boxy blazer and loose-fitting trousers designed with a belly-grazing chain-link belt, courtesy of Dion Lee. Union finished her early aughts-inspired look with a cropped leather halter top and accessorized with the Garavani Roman Stud Quilted Leather Shoulder Bag by Valentino, coordinating gold jewelry by David Yurman, and open-toe heeled mules from By Far. The actress kept her makeup matte yet fresh, opting for a subtle smoky eye and natural lip crafted by her makeup artist, Tasha Reiko Brown.

"Light lift 🖤🖤," Union captioned the fit pic while shouting out her glam team and hilariously geotagging her location as "Bad to the Bone."

In another post, Union ditched her blazer to show off her gorgeous glowing skin, cheekily sticking out her tongue for the camera.

"Hiiiiiiiii 🦂," Union captured the second image, followed by her astrological sign—Scorpio—showcased in emoji form.

Union, who wore her hair braided in a cornrow ponytail for the photo op, opened up to BAZAAR.com last year about how she was encouraged to embrace her hair's natural texture after becoming a mother, so much so that she started her own haircare line, Flawless by Gabrielle Union.

"Becoming a stepmom and a mom to two young girls, I had to really work to unlearn a lot of traditions. I let go of ideals about what acceptable hair is supposed to look like and really leaned more into healthy hair," said Union. "However our children choose to present themselves is a personal choice. No matter what, they're beautiful and amazing. I just want them to have healthy hair and know how to care for it."
