Newly engaged Gabrielle Union celebrated Christmas at the Heats vs. Lakers game wearing a snakeskin jacket, dark washed skinny jeans and tall chocolate suede boots. She accessorized the look with a green Chanel purse, blue mirror aviators and a pair of silver hoop earrings. Gabby sported a fresh face and her signature flowy locks.
Gabby’s look is a great choice for when you want to be equal parts fab and comfortable. I like that she didn’t overdo it for the game. Her sleek jacket creates the vibe for the look and the boots compliment the look flawlessly. What do you think?

1. Hair It Is: The Best Celeb Hair Moments of 2013
Celebrities are always changing their outfits to make a statement, and their hair is just as expressive. From Oprah’s afro-licious moment to Kim Kardashian’s blonde ambition, here are the hair transformations that impressed us and had everyone buzzing this year.
Solange is known for her beautiful afros and luscious braids, but this hairstyle served. Her many hairstyles have inspired YouTube vloggers to interpret their own looks from the indie style queen.
Women cut their hair everyday, but when you're hair is your signature, it's kind of a big deal. Many people debated if the hair was flattering on her or not (or if it was her hair at all), but nonetheless, it was a bold move that excited us.
Celeb hairstylist Kim Kimble reportedly used 7 bags of hair to create this iconic look for Ms. O. The image quickly went viral when Oprah posted it on Instagram and we were all the way here for it.
Ciara came back to music this year with a new look we applauded. This short cut is super-flattering on her and the ombre tresses make it modern and on-trend.
6. Nicki Minaj
You can argue about Nicki's scandalous outfits, but we have to admit, homegirl's hair was laaiiiddd thanks to her new celebrity hairstylist, Oscar James.
7. Kim Kardashian
We saw Kim go through many changes this year in her personal life -- marriage, divorce and Kanye -- so it's no wonder she wanted to changer her hair up a little bit. We're here for blonder (happier) Kim.
8. Michelle Obama
Mrs. O makes headlines for her fashion anytime she steps out the house, but we fell in love with her bangs when she was seen with them at a speech this year. We live for this modern chic look!
9. Nia Long
We all remember Nia Long's character Jordan as the fly girlfriend with the chic short hair in "The Best Man." That's why it was such a surprise to see her hair a little longer in the sequel. While we miss Jordan's funky pixie, we're here for this mature professional look that illustrates her personal and professional growth in the film.
10. Chrisette Michele
Chrisette came back to music with a new look that had everyone buzzing. The soul star released a series of photos shot by Derek Blanks showing her with an edgy blonde cut with a smoking hot red lip. She said she went through a lot when she was reinventing her sound, and from her new look, we believe it.
Rihanna was unapologetic in her music and looks this year. The pop superstar changes her hair constantly, from long red tresses to blonde curls, but we can't help but love when she goes back to her Good Girl Gone Bad days with a short black cut.
12. Teyonah Paris
The beautiful Teyonah Paris made a statement this year with her fabulous natural pompadour updo at the SAG Awards. This was definitely a moment when natural hair got the shine it deserved.
