Tracee Ellis Ross In Narciso Rodriguez – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Tracee Ellis Ross is someone who surprises on the red carpet. At the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, she opted for a minimalist approach.

I will concede that the rose gold shimmering fabric on her Narciso Rodriguez Pre-Fall 2018 dress is not the first thing people think of when they hear minimal, but there is a simplicity to the slip-like style.

Her Tyler Ellis clutch, Christian Louboutin ‘Follies Resille’ mesh pumps, fresh makeup and sleek braid were in keeping with the pared-back look.

I can see some comparing her to Gal Gadot here.

To pose with her Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series award for ‘Black-ish,’ she changed gears, donning a tawny furry jacket which gave the frock a ’70s vibe.

    Wow, the pic where she is in profile looking at her award with that coat, DI-VA. It’s in the genes I guess, lol.

    I think this may be my favourite ever look from her. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that there’s a person underneath the clothes with someone who plays up her fashion as much as Tracee does, and don’t get me wrong I love it, but it’s nice to see this flash of simplicity and grace. She looks relaxed.

    No. That top part looks ill fitting. Too small. I dislike it.

    Gorgeous…love the color against her skin.

    What a sexy look for her!

    I usually associate her style with extravagance so I like this relatively pared back outing.

    the top of the dress is ill fitted. Other than that she looks hot

    At first I wasn’t liking this very much, I thought it was too simple for her. But now I think she looks so beautiful!!

    I love it. Love it. She looks wonderful (sans coat).

    This is not her dress. So unflattering. I don’t get the Gal Gadot comparison.

  12. Maria F. January 16, 2018 at 13:46 #

    the colour is divine on her skin. I think she pulls it off, as she is wont to do with most outfits.

  13. Charlotte January 16, 2018 at 13:35 #

    I really like the fabric, this color is great on her, but the top is not flattering on her and I don’t think it would be flattering on anyone.
