Black-ish star, Tracee Ellis Ross, is gracing the cover of Entrepreneur magazine's March 2020 issue, rocking a fierce fro in a snazzy lemon suit, and she shares her thoughts on "How to Be a Leader."


Yesterday, the television host uploaded a photo of the cover of Entrepreneur magazine's March 2020 issue, on her Instagram page.

...[Tracee Ellis Ross] bagged the award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as "Rainbow Johnson" in the American sitcom, "Black-ish."

The 'Pattern Beauty' CEO got to chat about her journey to being an entrepreneur and also what it takes to be a leader.



Fans wait in anticipation to digest all the award-winning actress shared on this issue of the prestigious magazine as one of them took to the comment section to say:

"I love that you exist. I love that you provide a visual representation of being black, a woman, and brilliant while still being just genuinely amazing."



Daily Mail reports that in a recent sit down with Oprah Williams, Tracee shared about her mother, Diana Ross's reaction to her singing in the upcoming motion picture "The High Note."

The American actress also shared that she had always dreamed of being a singer but feared not being able to live up to the expectations of her family name. 

She admitted that her mother's reputation as an iconic singer weighed heavily on her when it came to singing.


However, she concluded that the key was not to be like her mother, but rather, to exhibit the honesty of voice that Diana did.

Tracee is known for being naturally authentic to herself and her values, and she showed just that in her inspiring speech at the NAACP Image Awards last week. 

According to Essence, the actress bagged the award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as "Rainbow Johnson" in the American sitcom, "Black-ish."



In a Youtube broadcast of her speech, the actress started by thanking the cast and crew of the series and went on to share some encouraging words about strong Black women telling their stories, saying:

"...we get to define ourselves, not through how others imagine us, but through how we see ourselves. Even if our truth makes you uncomfortable."



The 47-year-old actress, television host, and entrepreneur exhibits a simplicity that is far from basic, as seen in an Instagram photo she uploaded.

It definitely was a good day for the "Girlfriends" star, just like she said in the caption, as Tracee looked all shades of gorgeous in a long red dress, with her hair styled in a multicolored ponytail. 


Essence also noted that during the New York Fashion Week, models strutted the runway rocking a similar look.
