You can use qtstyleplugins, which will give you a Gtk2 (not Gtk3) style. There 
has never been a Gtk3 style.

Whether Canonical developed a Unity theme and/or style, I have no clue. I've 
been told that Fedora did develop a Gtk3 theme for Adwaita. That is not part 
of Qt, so you need to get it from wherever it resides.

Use the one from Fedora developers.
