STYLE Cover Star Tracee Ellis Ross Doesn’t Miss the Red Carpet

Actress, activist and current STYLE cover star Tracee Ellis Ross doesn’t miss the red carpet.

The star lost out on the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series at the recent Emmy Awards.

Tracee Ellis Ross didn’t miss the “frenetic energy” of the red carpet when the Emmy Awards went virtual this year, but she still loved getting dressed up.

The Black-ish star, who lost out to Schitt’s Creek’s Catherine O’Hara for the Lead Actress in a Comedy Series gong, didn’t miss the opportunity to fully glam up, even if it was from the comfort of her own home and not at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Donning a gold, ruffled Alexandre Vauthier gown, paired with Jimmy Choo heels and vintage Tiffany & Co. jewellery, Tracee posed for an impromptu photo shoot in her back yard, sharing the result on Instagram.

“How fun to get dressed up! Can’t say I miss the frenetic energy of the red carpet or wearing high heels, but boy do I miss a pretty dress!! #blackish #emmys,” she gleefully captioned one snap.

“I made my own red carpet for the #Emmys, complete with some camera clicks yes it’s a little janky, but hey-it was fun! #blackish.”

Her longtime stylist Karla Welch also added some photos to her own Instagram account, including one of the 47-year-old posing in a face mask.

“TRACEE. OBVIOUSLY we made a mask to match! It’s a pandemic people!” she wrote.

RUBY’s new Collection will make you feel like it’s Summer Already

Don’t wait for warm weather to arrive to embrace new-season prints and colours.

Packed with vibrant colours and blooming beautiful florals, RUBY’s latest collection, Bounty, is just what our spring wardrobe has been waiting for.

“One of the biggest joys for me is the day the cherry blossoms start to bloom around my neighbourhood,” explains RUBY’s creative director Deanna Didovich. “It marks a clear shift in season, when you know daylight savings is around the corner and everything just seems a bit brighter. This year, in particular, I think we all need a bit more sunlight in our lives! RUBY Bounty celebrates what I am hoping is a season that keeps on giving.”

Inspired by all of the colours that are synonymous with the season of spring, Bounty features a pop of candy pink, vibrant jade, azure blue, crisp white and a must-have watermelon shade of pink.

And of course, there a plenty of pretty floral prints for spring too.  “The first print of the season, Lucy, is a lively watercolour floral, printed on our traced-back-to-source Silk Crepe de Chine,” explains Didovich. “Most notable, the Lucy Silk Dress is the answer to my spring social plans, distanced or not. Bias cut, falling just above the ankle and with a completely open back, this is one of those classic RUBY pieces that you will keep forever.”

Discover our favourite pieces from the Bounty lookbook below and shop the collection in-store and online when it begins to drop on 25 September.
