Gabrielle Union fired back at one of her Instagram followers who questioned her personal sense of style. The Instagram user suggested the 46-year-old mom-of-one didn't dress age-appropriately.
The Being Mary Jane actress often posts photos of herself modeling select outfits from her clothing line collaboration with New York & Company.
Last week, she posted a photo that showed her wearing a black New York & Company frock with bulky sneakers from her husband's Li-Ning Wade 2 ACE sneaker line that is marketed to young adults.
The Li-Ning Wade 2 ACE NYFW grey/black sneakers retail for $63.
Gabby's outfit prompted one user to comment: "Can you dress your age please."
Union took issue with that one comment over all the other positive comments that praise her look.
She sarcastically replied:
"Oh I’d loooove to hear what you think is age appropriate. Please gimme allll the age appropriate fashion advise [sic] I didn’t know I needed in my life."
Among Gabby's defenders was one user who wrote, "so this is totally my style and im not 20. Or 30."
Another user wrote, "I not only love your style I love your energy and journey #Favor".
A third user wrote, "You silly little girls, hate to see a woman older than you in better shape, living well and more fabulous than you’ll ever be. Just say no to drugs".
Others encouraged Union to dress her attitude, not her age.
Question: Do you think Gabrielle dresses appropriately for her age? Would you wear those sneakers if you were pushing 50?
