Tracee Ellis Ross Breaks Down Her Iconic Style


Last week, the British Fashion Awards were held in London and Tracee Ellis Ross was out here looking like a whole salad; because she be dressing, damn it. This year, Tracee hosted the BFA's and proved once again that she's not new to this elevated style shit, she's true to it. Growing up as the daughter of Diana Ross, Tracee learned early-on what it truly means to live on the fly. In a previous interview, she explained:

"There were beautiful things everywhere, but there was a sense of taking care of and cherishing beauty. And also of not taking things too seriously. You could be climbing all over my mom's head while she'd be sitting in an interview, putting your handprints on everything."

As Motown royalty, it's only right that she inherited Queen Diana's eye for style, but according to Tracee, her passion for fashion first began as a defense mechanism. In a recent interview with CNN, Tracee explained:

"For me, fashion started as a way to protect myself — to have a bit of control over how the world perceives me. And I think, for many, that's still the case. I think fashion has evolved for me personally into a form of creative expression."

While we stan a cutely covered queen, Tracee says that her wardrobe isn't for the paparazzi. For her, fashion is a way to express the joy and self-love that she had on the inside, outwardly. She told British Vogue:

"I'm partnered with a joyous stylist, Karla Welch. When I have an event coming up, I'll send her inspiration pictures or we'll come up with a theme, but mostly I just wear what makes my heart sing."

Tracee and her stylist, Karla, are known for hitting us with the heat every damn time she hits the red carpet, but the truth is, sis is fly AF everywhere she goes.

Less & Less Of Us Have Close Friends These Days. Why Is That?

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.” At close to two decades of working with married couples, I agree with this man 1000 percent. It’s actually the main motivation for why I once penned, “Are You Sure You're Actually FRIENDS With Your Spouse?” because, the reality is, if you’re not friends with the person who you vowed to share every aspect of your life with, for the rest of your life, it’s going to be very difficult (if not damn near impossible) to honor that level of commitment. Without question, I will now and forever die on the hill that if you like your partner, you can make it through the not-so-in-love-right-now moments. Vice versa? Eh…not so much.
