'Black-Ish' Star Tracee Ellis-Ross Flaunts Her Stunning Figure in a Black String Bikini
Tracee Ellis-Ross made the day of her social media followers after she uploaded a sultry image of her rocking a black bikini.
While she lounged on a picnic bench in the first image, the second slide showed her striking a model pose on the picnic table. The actress paired the sultry number with a pair of sneakers and an updo as she wrote in the caption:
“Pool party! Except I don’t have a pool. And I’m too scared to have a party. Siri play ‘Summertime’ baby DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince.”
Later in 2014, Tracee became known as Dr. Rainbow “Bow” Johnson on ABC’s “Black-ish.” Her character made such an impact on people that she won a Golden Globe for it.
Since she uploaded the pictures a day ago, it has garnered over 900,000 likes and 20,000 comments. Some of those comments came from fellow celebrities like Kerry Washington, Lala Anthony, Chloe Hall, and “Black-ish” co-star, Deon Cole.
The attention-grabbing post comes a few months after the release of her film, “The High Note.” Not only would the romance/musical be Tracee’s first time as a lead in a film, but it was also the first time that her fans would ever hear her sing professionally.
Speaking about how she felt when she finally got the opportunity to show off her singing talent to her mom, Diana Ross, Tracee recounted to USA Today that:
“When we originally started demoing the songs, I got her in my car and played her the music. We were holding hands and we both cried...”

Although she has been in the eye of the public since she was a child (thanks to her mother’s award-winning music career), Tracee didn’t fully come into her own until 2000.
The Guardian recalled that it was that year that she got a comic gig on MTV’s “The Lyricist Lounge Show.” That same year, she landed a role as Joan Clayton on the sitcom, “Girlfriends.” The show earned the spot of the “longest-running live-action network sitcom” at that time after running for eight years.
Later in 2014, Tracee became known as Dr. Rainbow “Bow” Johnson on ABC’s “Black-ish.” Her character made such an impact on people that she won a Golden Globe for it. Thus, making her the first Black woman to win the award in over three decades.
In addition to being an award-winning actress, Tracee is also a TV host, businesswoman, and an activist.
