Ross kept her beauty look for the evening naturally and fresh, lining her eyes with kohl liner and opting for a nude toned glossy lip.
During a red carpet interview with actress Keke Palmer, Ross revealed that when selecting her ensemble for the evening that she took inspiration from her mother iconic role in the 1975 film, Mahogony. In the film, Diana Ross plays a burgeoning, fashion designer and Ross's performance in the movie is considered one of her most memorable roles.
Tracee Ellis Ross previously spoke to BAZAAR.com about how her relationship with fashion and specifically jewelry helped shape her personal style.
Particularly after the year that we've had, there's nothing like infusing a bit of glamour and joy back into life, and realizing that the timelessness of a beautiful piece of jewelry takes you to another place," Ross told BAZAAR. "[Sharing my outfits] is a way to put joy in action for me. When I get dressed, I think to myself, 'Ah, I like her, I remember her!' She got lost a little bit," Ross says. "During the pandemic, I continued working and there was no question that I continued putting on my lipstick, putting on a beautiful top and earrings and necklaces and things like that, but to be going back out into the world and getting dressed for that—I missed that part of my life."
