Well, it finally happened! Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross channeled her superstar mom, Diana Ross, in a red sequin extravaganza. And boy, did she look FIERCE. Not only was the familial resemblance turned up to 11, Tracee looked like a high fashion Jessica Rabbit. She just keeps outdoing herself time and time again.
Obviously, this is not the first time Tracee Ellis Ross has recreated her mother’s iconic look. Usually, it is for a benefit or an organization. Her red carpet style has always been her own. But we cannot help but admire this red sequin number that makes her look like Hollywood royalty.
OH, COME ON!
She just slayed everyone.
Let’s see the dress from a different angle, and a different location.
And now for a closer look.
We bet Diana Ross is so proud.
When your mother is Diana Ross, fashion might feel like a game of catch-up. But Tracee Ellis Ross totally embraced the family resemblance at Thursday’s amfAR Gala in Cannes.
Just look at this photo of Diana in a red dress of her own.
Tracee loves her famous mother.
A lot of the time celebrities avoid being lumped in with their famous parents. Especially when one of them is basically a living legend. But Tracee Ellis Ross has nothing but love for her mom.
“I’ve never felt like I was in my mother’s shadow, Tracee told PEOPLE. “If anything, I felt like I was in her embrace. But I did have a sense of wanting to find my own path as a person.
Even though Tracee’s style is all her own, the fundamentals were passed down to her by Diana.
“My mom taught me that you can spend money on nice things if you’re going to use them, she said. “For example, I have an Alexander McQueen jacket that I wear with everything, even sweatpants.
Tracee’s red sequin gown is just further proof that the fabulous apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
