As for makeup, the wife of Dwyane Wade rocked a glossy lip lined with brown lip liner and an understated eye look.
She looked runway-ready as she strutted her stuff down the city sidewalk with her entourage in tow.
Union is in the Big Apple this week with her husband Wade, 41, ahead of the star-studded Met Gala, which takes place Sunday, May 1.
On Thursday, the couple showed face at the Tiffany & Co. Fifth Avenue grand reopening in Manhattan, where they mingled with the likes of Kate Moss and Katy Perry.
The outing comes just a day after it was revealed the couple and their family fled their home in Florida due to the state’s anti-LGBTQ policies.
Wade shares 21-year-old Zaire and 15-year-old Zaya – who came out as transgender at 12 in 2020 – with ex-wife Siovaughn Funches; Zaire, 21, and son, Xavier, 9, with Aja Metoyer, during a brief split with Union, with the couple sharing 4-year-old Kaavia James Union Wade via a surrogate.
While Wade didn’t reveal where he and his family moved to after fleeing from Florida, the NBA legend made a stylish appearance in NYC with his wife.
Union stepped out in a low-cut black lacy dress with black ruffles spaced out all the way down the dress.

She had her hair pulled back in a bun with a few strands falling over her face, while accessorizing with a stunning gold necklace.
The actress also accessorized with a number of gold rings as she stepped out with her husband of eight years.
Dwyane stepped out in a pristine white t-shirt under a stylish black leather jacket for the red carpet appearance.
He also rocked a silver link necklace with diamond-studded earrings for the outing on Thursday evening.
The NBA All-Star completed his look with black pants and white sneakers for the red carpet event.
During an interview with journalist, host and NBA reporter Rachel Nichols on her show Headliners, Wade explained why he decided to leave the state he called home, despite being a celebrated figure.
‘You know, obviously, the taxes are great. Having Wade County is great. But my family would not be accepted or feel comfortable there. And, so that’s one of the reasons why I don’t live there,’ he stated.
‘A lot of people don’t know that. I have to make decisions for my family, not just personal, individual decisions.’

Wade explained how specific policies and laws passed by the state of Florida now make it hard for Wade and his family to feel accepted and comfortable in the state.
Only last week educators in all Florida public schools for all grade levels are now banned from teaching students about gender identity and sexual orientation in a sweeping move announced by Ron DeSantis’s board of education.
The move marks a huge expansion of the The Parental Rights in Education law – also dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill by critics – which was signed last year by the governor and sparked a firestorm across the country.
Critics of the policy claim it could harm children who identify as gay and transgender.
