There's nothing sexier than keeping it simple and Tracee Ellis Ross is living proof of this fact. Our good sis has been turning heads and breaking necks with her sleek and chic style for decades, and as she approaches her 48th birthday, it's clear that Tracee doesn't plan on letting up anytime soon.

According to Tracee, while her style has been carefully crafted to fit her unique personality, she can't help but think she got it from her mama:

"Mom gave me an innate love of glamour. My mom [Diana Ross] was extremely glamorous at home, not just on the stage. That's probably why I never go out in full sweats. During my childhood, she would only wear tracksuits if they were fancy and with high heels."
"It fed into a persona I put on to cover my insecurities. It was a way to present an identity – if I wore a great outfit, I could conquer the world. When I was a toddler, I'd wrap myself in a bedsheet, wear Mom's heels and become a queen. Now, clothing is a form of creative expression."

Although Tracee has made a mark on the entertainment industry as an actress, red carpet moments and NYFW cameos have slowly but surely made her one of our favorite fashionistas in the game, and one of her most recent fits to grace the 'gram is no exception.

Rocking a two-piece pant set by Mary Kate and Ashley's brand The Row, accompanied by a Gucci purse and Nike trainers, Tracee proved that monochromatic fashion isn't just a trending style of the summer, issa look all damn year.

I've got quite a few male friends. Also, because of what I do for a living, I have many male clients too. While there are a billion-and-one reasons why I'm actually grateful to be able to say this, probably my top favorite one is that I get to hear a lot of men's innermost thoughts — things that sometimes they are hesitant to say because they're not sure how we'll take it and/or things they've never really felt comfortable being very open about and/or — and yes, this happens — things they never get asked their thoughts on and so, they never bring those things up.

I don't care if you've been with someone for several weeks or many years, if there's one thing that should be made a top priority for the entire duration of the relationship, it's both individuals, being extremely intentional, about keeping the romance alive. One way to do that is to cook together.

A big congratulations is certainly in store for the Jameses! Earlier this week, on September 14, LeBron and Savannah James celebrated their 8th year wedding anniversary. Symbolically speaking, the 8th year in marriage is usually represented by bronze. A mixed metal, bronze is durable and stronger than copper and iron (two symbols of earlier wedding anniversaries), which is why it is traditionally gifted to couples who make it to this milestone.

It's been 573 days since my last New York Fashion Week. That's one year, six months, and 24 days. The last time I was in Manhattan, February 2020, was just as Big Rona was placing a chokehold on the world. I would have never guessed that while I was living my best life in the NYC streets, a pandemic would soon change my life completely. Because of the state of the world, there were no shows in September and by February 2021, the fashion houses were trying to figure out how to put on runway shows which led many brands to the digital space.
