Hair… and husband goals! NBA superstar Dwyane Wade and actress Gabrielle Union, completely in-love celebrity couple who married in Miami three years ago, took their adorable dynamic to the red carpet of the CFDA Fashion Awards this week.

The Being Mary Jane actress stunned in Rodarte, rocking a studded, sheer shirt seamlessly tucked into matching embellished black pants topped by a gold sequin blazer. Her husband coordinated in a sleek tailored brown suit by Gucci, but that just happened to be coincidental .

“We never get dressed in the same room,” Wade told Entertainment Tonight. “We always come out and [we’ll] be like, ‘Oh! Okay.’ We oddly coordinated in some way, so it worked!”

The Chicago Bulls player, 35, acknowledged his wife’s goddess-like appearance that night; Particularly, the beautiful curls framing her face. ”It’s everything. It’s the hair—it’s the big hair,” Wade continued. “You know my wife don’t normally go for the big hair. She’s been doing it lately, so you know it’s the whole thing.”

Along with her tresses, Wade had even more to say. “I love the jacket as well. It’s chic, you know. She looks relaxed, but it’s still sexy,” he said. “I like it!”

Union, 44, echoed her husband’s praises, telling ET that she was into his attire that night. “I like the cut,” she said. “I like that it’s very tailored, you know, and I love the man bling!”

The couple married in 2014 in a lavish Miami ceremony at the Chateau Artisan. Celebrity guests included John Legend, who sang to the pair at the recaption, as well as Ludacris and comedian Kevin Hart.
