We’ve always seen Tracee Ellis Ross as a boss lady, but in a recent episode of the LA Times’ TV podcast ‘Can’t Stop Watching,’ the actress spoke about the time she spoke up on behalf of her character Rainbow ‘Bow’ Johnson, once she realized that Bow was relegated to typical sexist sitcom wife role.
Tracee said, ‘What I did speak up about from the beginning was, “Why am I carrying laundry?” “Why am I the person in the kitchen cooking right now, when this has nothing to do with the scene?”
It’s important to note that she wasn’t shaming on domestic work, but that it shouldn’t be gendered in the first place.
In a recent Instagram post she shared to her 9.1 million fans, she told a story about her new normal with regards to being styled by her stylist and friend Karla Welch.
Tracee said, “wanted to be chic but COVID safe, so @karlawelchstylist threw this gorgeous @therow suit over the wall; then I grabbed this fabulous @gucci bag that they gifted to me (haven’t used a purse in 5 months), a little sexy bodysuit courtesy of @samiranasr, and one of the very few purchases I made during the pandemic: these fancy little @nike sneakers from @goat !”
I say new normal for Tracee and Karla, but there are some stylists who don’t live in the same country as their client. Gwyneth Paltrow’s stylist lives in London for example.
When it comes to this gorgeous lemon suit from The Row’s Pre-Fall 2020 collection, Tracee just has the Boss Lady mentality to pull off the oversized power suit. This isn’t the first time this style has been her go-to.
The red and white Nike sneakers might throw some off, but I’m loving the ’90s New Yorker vibe of it all.
