tracee ellis ross wore all black designers at ama’s

Tracee Ellis Ross‘ sartorial dominance has been giving us life like the Old Testament. So gather ’round children for a visual story, because last night the Black-ish star hosted the American Music Awards (second year in a row), and her range of outfits displayed a breathtaking union of fashion and political statement. Every single outfit Ellis Ross wore came from Black designers, turning her stage presence into a showcase for Black Excellence in fashion.
Secure your edges because here are all of her looks:
Ms. Ross started the night in a peach Pyer Moss power suit, keeping to a one-woman mission of re-establishing the power of pink — and pink-adjacent colors.
Ross opened the show with a YASSS-worthy dance performance in a sequins bodysuit that, once the performance was over, she adorned with a Dapper Dan x Gucci cape.
Then Ross brought the sparkle: a figure-hugging CD Green creation with just enough mirrors that anyone near could see their own reaction to her SLAYING in this shimmery piece.
Ross then donned a voluminous red skirt by Shanel Campbell, paired with a “When We All Vote” shirt created in collaboration with her stylist Karla Welch.
Virgil Abloh designed this tulle Off-White masterpiece, adding an ethereal edge to Ross’ roster of outfits.
The bodysuit. The beret. The gloves. The glasses. The lips.
Cameroonian designer Claude Kameni has been experiencing a meteoric rise, which is understandable considering the fact that Ross looks euphoric in this print gown.
Maybe we’ll start getting tired of black sequins when Olivier Rousteing stops making it look so chic and Tracee Ellis Ross stops looking so good in it.
Fresh out of Parsons, Deshon Ryan Starks is a monochrome savant and this blue suit dress is EVERYTHING.
