HIGHLIGHTING HER FELLOW ENTERTAINERS

Instead of highlighting her work as an actress, she decided to compliment all the beautiful and talented black women that have paved the way for her to be the actress that she is now. 

"I am humbled to learn from the legacies of Moms Mabley, Lena Horne, Cicely Tyson, Ruby Dee, Diahann Carroll, Maxine Waters, my mom, Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou, Nina Simone and Toni Morrison. And I love being a part of this ever-growing chorus of black women owning our own legacies."

A GOLDEN DRESS FOR A GOLDEN LADY

Just a couple of weeks ago, she turned heads in a gorgeous gold Zuhair Murad gown, which featured sequins, a cape, and a revealing neckline that she accessorized with golden sandals. 

She used the gorgeous outfit to attend the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, and thanks to the creation and her glam team, Tracee revealed how she felt through her Instagram post, saying:

"I feel pretty! Thank you [Zuhair Murad] for this glorious couture gown! And [Karla Welch], [Lisa Storey], and [Araxi Lindsey] for unearthing my baby hairs. #vfoscars."

A CONTRAST OF HER ON-SCREEN AND OFF-SCREEN LIFE

Unlike many other celebrities, Tracee's big break came when she was much older. She stars in "Black-ish" and its spin-off "Mixed-Ish," where she plays the role of a loving mother and wife. 

However, in real life, she's chosen not to have children, and instead, is content at the life she lives. During an interview, she revealed how great she thinks her life is despite not having children. 

"I'm a good friend, a solid daughter, a hard worker."

To Tracee, that's all that matters for her to enjoy life to the fullest.
