Tracee Ellis Ross commanded attention in her bright red Oscars gown. The daughter of Diana Ross wore a bright red gown by Carolina Herrera–the dress stood out even against the red carpet. The bottom half of her gown flared outward as a version of a mermaid cut.
Her strapless gown had a sweetheart neckline that allowed her diamond necklace by NIWAKA to sparkle.
She wore red Christian Louboutin heels that matched her dress. Her hair was slicked bag in an elegant bun, and she wore pearl earrings.
She shared a series of photos on her Instagram to highlight her fashion choices.
She wrote in the caption, “Oscars, baby!” Tracee also tagged her extensive crew, which included stylist Karla Welch.
Karla styled Hailey Bieber for the Vanity Fair Oscar party that received rave reviews.
Joe Zee commented, “Just literally called this out as on ABC pre-show a minute after you arrived.. LOVE THIS.”
Other commenters left heart emojis and kind words.
