Tracee Ellis Ross: We Love You and Your Wardrobe So Much

Tracee Ellis Ross is a bit of an obsession of ours here at Who What Wear UK. Yes, she’s the daughter of OG glamour icon Diana Ross, but she’s also an incredible, award-winning actress who can make us laugh until our cheeks ache on shows like Black-ish. In short: Ross is the modern style icon we’ve been waiting for.

Not just a clotheshorse for incredible outfits (styled with the help of celebrity stylist Karla Welch), Tracee is a lover of bold, creative, self-expression—and her wardrobe is an immediate reflection of that. She also uses her celebrity status as a platform to speak out and support causes that matter to her. From wearing black on the red carpet to support the launch of the #TimesUp movement in Hollywood to wearing a hot pink boiler suit at the 2017 Women’s March (where she delivered a rousing speech), the star is a powerhouse—both on screen and off.

Likewise, her style is something to marvel at continuously. If you’re not already enamoured with the goddess who is Tracee Ellis Ross, you’re about to be. Scroll through the gallery below for some of her best looks yet.
