Tracee Ellis Ross In Ronald van der Kemp – E!, ELLE & IMG Host NYFW Kickoff Party

‘Personal style’ is one thing that has never eluded Tracee Ellis Ross, and she showed off another of her eclectic ensembles at the NYFW Kickoff Party, A Celebration of Personal Style, on Wednesday (September 6) in New York City.

Joining Kate Bosworth for the party, Tracee brought a full bouquet of blooms in tow with this Ronald van der Kemp Fall 2017 Couture gown.

Channeling something of an ’80s punk-pretty aesthetic, the dress was business on the right—but party on the left—what with its full slit that revealed those leather legging boots.

We had this on our Red Carpet Wish List for Michelle Monaghan, but I have to give it to Tracee, though, she fully owns this eccentric look, and it’s always great to see her having fun with fashion.

    O goodness no. What a mess! And soooo heavy looking. Just NO

    Well, she definitely owns it, you have to give it to her.

    Still, I don’t get it? I don’t get what the idea behind it was, I don’t get the execution, I don’t get how the leather trousers came near this dress in the first place? I can’t even really put my finger on what is going wrong, but it just feels like it’s SO MUCH. I don’t know what is too much, but it is…

    It makes me want to take a couple steps back and make one of those big hand gestures and indicate at this whole thing.

    I love how she made it her own, I think it works.

    It is kind of hideous in the way that reminds one of those aluminized gift paper wrap from the 90ies but she is making it work like very few others could. The print is like from Barbara Cartland*s cushions, so trully horrid that starts being appealing in a kind of meta way, a manifest of contradiction.

    I’m still trying to figure out the leather legging boots. She’s never boring, that’s for sure!

    Well it looks like drapes below the neck but I love it above the neck and her wonderful happiness that is radiating

    I like it. Without her personal touch, it would have looked liken a flamenco dress.

    I actually really like this. It’s different and she looks like she’s having fun.

    at least she’s not wearing plastic.

  11. Maya September 7, 2017 at 16:29 #

    Well, she seems to be having fun despite how the very opposite of fun this whole outfit is.

    Tracee loves fashion and I love Tracee, but this is not a win for me.

    • Christine September 7, 2017 at 16:21 #

      Lol agreed. Her passion for fashion is cute

    • amy September 8, 2017 at 15:01 #

      +2. I usually appreciate her fearless side but this is too much.

  13. JHH September 7, 2017 at 16:10 #

    I do love how Tracee owns her looks but this look other than her beautiful face is a big no for me.

    • JHH September 7, 2017 at 16:13 #

      In the close ups you can see that she needs a bra fitting. The print is horrid. But, at least she has a personal style and takes risks.
