Tracee Ellis Ross is a fashion fanatic — and, if you had any doubt, take a look at her latest outfit.
The “Black-ish” actress never fears a bold style statement, as proven by her most recent high fashion look. The star lounged at home in a turquoise blue long-sleeved top and navy trousers by Bottega Veneta. Both pieces were covered in turquoise feathers, creating an allover textured effect. Ross frequently works with stylist Karla Welch, and it appears this ensemble was specifically gifted to her from Welch by Veneta’s creative director Daniel Lee. “Thank you for making this fantastical feathery ‘fit for me!!!” Ross exclaimed in her post’s caption. Big Bird, but make it fashion? We’re here for it!
The star also opted for footwear by Bottega Veneta, pairing her dramatic feathered outfit with the brand’s newest mules. The Dot Sock style, hailing from the label’s Wardrobe 02 collection, featured sleek patent leather uppers in a maroon hue called “Jam.” The shoes also included rounded toes, textured soles, and 3.5-inch heels. Ross’ pair added a contrasting texture and hue to the rest of her look, while simultaneously creating a crisp color palette. Her mules retail for $990 on SaksFifthAvenue.com.
Mules are one of this summer’s most popular shoes, due to their combination of a sandal and pump. The style can instantly dress up any ensemble, while remaining ventilated and easy to slip on and off. Similarly to Ross, close-toed styles have caught on with stars like Katy Perry, Heidi Klum, and Chrissy Teigen from top labels like Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, and Balenciaga in recent weeks. The star of “The High Note” is also no stranger to stylish mules, having previously worn pairs from brands like Jimmy Choo over the years.
Ross is known for her bold fashion statements on and off the red carpet. An avid fashion collector and fan, the “Girlfriends” star can regularly be seen in current and vintage looks from numerous top fashion brands like Balenciaga, Chanel, Christopher John Rogers, Loewe and more. When it comes to shoes, she’s a similar style chameleon, wearing a range of pumps, sandals and boots in bold colors from brands like Louboutin, Andrea Wazen, Casadei and Gucci.
