Tracee Ellis Ross Brings Dark Edge in Plunging Black Jumpsuit and Shiny Boots to People’s Choice Awards 2021

Tracee Ellis Ross brought a dark edge to the red carpet in head-to-toe Balenciaga at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

The “Black-ish” star hit the carpet in a long black jumpsuit with a deep V-shaped neckline with Kim Kardashian, following her presentation of this year’s Fashion Icon Award to Kardashian. The piece included cargo pant pockets, as well as a black zipper accent on its front. Ross paired the look with large crystal statement earrings and a bow-shaped crystal statement necklace, adding supersized glamour to her ensemble—and coordinating smoothly with Kardashian, who also wore a head-to-toe Balenciaga outfit by Demna Gvasalia.

For footwear, the “High Note” star wore a pair of patent leather boots. The black style featured sleek uppers, as well as rounded toes. Though their heels weren’t visible, the style likely included heels that totaled between 3-4 inches in height. When paired with her jumpsuit, the boots created a streamlined effect that was utilitarian and edgy.
