Tracee Ellis Ross arrived to the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards to rightfully claim the Fashion Icon Award on Sunday night in Los Angeles.
Ahead of the ceremony, Ross wowed on the red carpet in an elegant chocolate suit by Schiaparelli that featured gold accents. The wide-legged ensemble covered her camel-colored pumps from Christian Louboutin; the pair retails for $695 at Net-a-Porter.
The “Black-ish” star accessorized the look with dangling earrings and warm glam. She opted for a deep red lip and styled her hair in retro-like finger waves and sleek braid.
Of tonight’s honor, Ross shared on the red carpet, “It’s been a hard time for the world and our country, and being named the Fashion Icon by People’s Choice has definitely put a big smile on my face.”
Before arriving to the show, Ross shared a slideshow of photos on Instagram of herself getting ready for “tonight’s festivities.”
“Taking my fashion bath for tonight’s festivities… a day worth sparkles and feathers. Tune in tonight cause @peopleschoice is giving ya girl a fancy award. I’m a fashion icon y’all #PCAs,” she wrote.
In the photos, Ross is seen posing in an empty bathtub wearing a pink and lavender jumpsuit. She pulled the look together with feathers atop her head and blush suede pumps.
