Tracee Ellis Ross brought on her goofy side as she gracefully mounted the stage at the 2020 People's Choice Awards when she aced the Fashion Icon Award category.

Tracee, a main cast on "Black-Ish," rocked an immaculate Alexander McQueen dress with a high-low hem that revealed her thigh-high leather boots.

While her hair was styled in a sleek chignon, the star actress rocked perfect makeup, red hot lippy, and statement jewelry from Ana Khouri. The star mounted the stage and started on a goofy note. She jokingly said:

The movie star went on to line her gratitude for all those she had worked with in past times in the fashion industry. Tracee, 48, honorably mentioned Karla Welch and her star dad, Robert Ellis Silberstein.

The "Black-Ish" actress called Silberstein her "humor twin" and thanked him for the influence of his impeccable sense of style. With regard to her mom, Diana, Tracee thanked her for her parenting style.

Tracee believes that people should use their fashion as a frontier through their endeavors while being the best they could be.

The TV actress noted that Diana's glamorous fashion sense helped her realize the power in fashion and exquisite taste. According to Tracee, Diana was strict with her kids' fashion despite being a glam mom.

Tracee, who played Joan in "Girlfriends," mentioned that Diana did not let her have a seasonal shopping budget when she was a teenager, but her love for vintage outfits helped her ace fashion on a budget.

Last month, E!'s general manager Jen Neal described Tracee's sense of style as "transcendent" while stating that the 48-year-old's impact in the fashion industry was quite profound.

The Hollywood actress started her fashion exploration as a model in the '90s, known for her signature tight curls and ability to switch from casual show-off to glam girl and exquisite dress-up.

While her fashion stance has endured for decades, Tracee believes that people should use their fashion as a frontier through their endeavors while being the best they could be.
