We didn't think anyone would top the length of Simone Biles' holiday braids, but Gabrille Union has only gone and done it.

The actress was in Milan for fashion week and not only were her outfits on point - wait until you see her midriff exposing jumpsuit - but her hairstyles were just as good.

Stepping out for dinner, Gabrielle was glowing with a makeup look created by Esther Edeme, which included voluminous lashes, fresh skin and the glossy 'gym lips' we're seeing everywhere right now.

Most eye-catching of all though was her hair, which had been braided into knee-length cornrows by hairstylist Isaac Poleon.

Isaac braided Gabrielle's into three thicker plaits which tapered all the way down her thighs and finished just above her knees.

The finished result is seriously stunning, if not entirely practical for everyday.

Gabrielle was clearly feeling her look as well, if her caption is anything to go by.

"I was in my BAG in Milan. Too bad new knees weren’t also in said bag. Tried to drop it like it’s hot and needed Life Alert," she wrote.

While we very much doubt Gabrielle is in need of a knee replacement, we're still always shocked when we remember the ever youthful actress is 49 years old.

We know a snatched hairstyle can be like a mini face lift, but whatever Gabrielle's skincare routine is, we need to know it asap.

If you need us, we'll be stalking her socials.
