The 48-year-old Black-ish actress wore a brown suit on the red carpet and then fittingly changed into a second look to accept the award for Fashion Icon of 2020.
Tracee made sure to thank the magazine industry, stylists she’s worked with (including Karla Welch), designers, her father, and her mother Diana Ross, who she called “the icon herself.”
“Not only for her great parenting … but also her example, her sense of style, her epic closet and her glamour that introduced me to the power of fashion,” Tracee said.
She also talked about how she’d go on stage to collect the beads that fell off her mom’s dresses “so that I could have pieces of the magic, seeds of the fashion dream that I was cultivating for myself.”
FYI: Tracee is wearing a Schiaparelli suit and jewels with Christian Louboutin shoes on the carpet. On stage, she is wearing a full Alexander McQueen look with Ana Khouri jewels.
