LOOKING CLASSY IN ROYAL BLUE

Although it was tough to pick her favorite outfits, one thing is clear for Tracee; she loves dressing up with stylish pieces of clothes. The first one on the fashion icon's list was a royal blue dress when she was a young teen.

Her simple dress had a large ribbon on the front. Though she wore a thick pair of glasses, she still appeared stylish like her mother, Diana Ross, who was known for wearing glamorous clothes

SERVING A LOOK IN SEQUINNED DRESS

As she grew into a beautiful woman, Tracee developed her impeccable taste in fashion. In this snap, the prolific actress posed for a magazine in a tight-hugging shirt while holding a pink purse.

In a past interview, she shared that fashion was engraved in her DNA and that Diana is her great fashion influence.

LOOKING STUNNING IN BLACK 

For the third snap, Tracee, who first walked the Mugler fashion runway at the age of 18, wore a stylish long dress with a mermaid cut at the bottom. 

She appeared confident in her dress, which had interesting details at the center that created an illusion. She topped her elegant black ensemble with chandelier-like gold earrings.

FEARLESS IN SNAKESKIN

The fashion style of the former host of the 2017 American Music Awards is constantly evolving. The more she experiments with different types of clothes, the more she comes out fearless and daring. 

She once donned this body-hugging snakeskin ankle-length dress which highlighted her fit physique. The actress looked perfect with her large earrings and killer heels.

ELEGANT AND CLEAN IN BLUE GREEN

Even though she is nearing 50, Tracee never runs out of style ideas. For the last picture, "The High Note" star served a look in an oversized blue-green top and white palazzo pants. 

In a past interview, she shared that fashion was engraved in her DNA and that Diana is her great fashion influence. Without her stylish mother, she would not be where she is today, she said.

The ageless beauties paid sweet messages to each other alongside their stunning swimsuit snaps. Tracee wore a jaw-dropping black bikini while Union dazzled in striped swimwear.
