The 40-year-old philanthropist and businesswoman shared a video wearing a stunning custom-made two-piece gown while posing in front of a mural featuring Kobe and Gianna. The black assemble featured a purple heart with the number “2” embroidered on a sheer mesh top with flower details and a tulle skirt.
Vanessa also wore the traditional catrina (skull) makeup and accessorized with a gold headpiece and a bouquet of matching flowers. “Amor Eterno~ Dia De Los Muertos ~ Kobe & Gigi,” she captioned one of her posts.
According to Vanessa, fashion designer Lily Martinez is the mastermind behind her impeccable look. “The #2 on my sacred heart for my Gigi, the golden basketball halo with 24 stars for my husband, the 6 butterflies on my flower crown representing my family… everything is so heartfelt and thought out,” she wrote. “The love and details you put into this do not go unnoticed.”
The Latina mom also hired photographer Kusha Alagband to capture the moment.
“Yesterday I switched my activist hat for my real job. Had an opportunity to shoot the stunning @vanessabryant in an amazing gown made for Dia de los Muertos (sometimes called Dia de los Fieles Difuntos) – Day of the Dead,” she wrote. “Traditionally, November 1st honors deceased children and November 2nd honors deceased adults. Day of the Dead is celebrated passionately throughout Mexico, and especially so in smaller provincial towns and cities.”
