No one bleeds fashion the way Tracee Ellis Ross does. While acting is her craft, style is just who she is. I mean, how many of us can recycle key pieces from Diana Ross’ closet? When you have that advantage, you’re automatically a fashion icon by default.
Tracee isn’t only known for her sense of style. She serves as hair goals for almost every woman I know. Her big, bountiful curls have become a signature look for her, much like her momma. What I admire most about Tracee is that I don’t remember a time in recent years that she has straightened her hair. It’s almost like she’s made it her duty to make her curls a huge part of her look.
Year 46 was a big one for the actress. She launched Pattern, a new haircare line for all the natural textures out there. She is in the 6th season of Blackish with a spinoff show Mixedish on the way. She’s hosting award shows, inspiring women on panels, and slaying our lives to smithereens when it comes to the fashion game.
As we enter her 47th year of life, we’re exploring 15 times Tracee Ellis Ross gave us life.
