With Kobe’s sexual assault charges behind him, the couple looks happy and stunning, especially Vanessa who wore her hair long and golden brown.
After just having her second daughter, Gianna, two months before, Vanessa looks absolutely stunning with black, shiny long hair, full brows, and a beautiful bronze glow.
Vanessa keeps her dark locks, but adds blunt bangs to her style while attending the Pirates of the Caribbean premiere with Kobe and her oldest daughter Natalia.
