Tracee Ellis Ross wore a gorgeous plunging purple dress to this year's NAACP Image Awards, where she won Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for "Black-ish."


Tracee Ellis Ross joined the growing number of Black women to be acknowledged at this year's NAACP Image Awards, joining the likes of Lizzo and Angela Bassett.

On Saturday, Tracee accepted the award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on "Black-ish," and she used her speech to acknowledge the growing amount of women being recognized in their own fields.

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."



While accepting her award, she donned a beautiful blue and purple Christopher John Rogers gown that had a deep plunging neckline.

Tracee Ellis Ross' fashion sense has always been on point, and that's something people always look forward to during the public events she attends.



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."



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.
