These Photos That Prove Tracee Ellis Ross Is The Queen Of Monochrome

Tracee proved that monochromatic fashion isn't just a trending style of the summer, issa look all damn year.

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.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.

Have you ever wondered how some people tend to get over breakups easily, and others have more of a difficult time? The zodiac signs are always telling a story, and the story of love is written in the stars. Some signs naturally follow their emotions more and live by the heart. Others signs focus on balancing their head with their heart and can rationalize this type of change in their life, such as a breakup.

'Abbott Elementary' Proves That TV Can Build Community

The first time I thought about how art could be a form of community building was with HBO’s Insecure. The dearly departed comedy series created and starring Issa Rae provided audiences with more than just weekly laughs over the course of five years, but it also created space for other Black artists and entrepreneurs to thrive-- from all the Black businesses that the show has collaborated with to the Black music artists that the show has put audiences onto. It even created opportunities within entertainment journalism for many up and coming Black journalists who got their start by reviewing the show or hosting after shows unpacking the mess that went on in the episode.
