Actress Tracee Ellis Ross covers WWD & The Edit by NET-A-PORTER



Photographed by Rainer Hosch, Emmy-nominated starlet Tracee Ellis Ross covers the latest issue of WWD. Ross was recently honored by WWD and Variety at the 2016 Style Makers Awards with the Style Innovator Award for her bold, daring fashion.

Being the daughter of iconic singer Diana Ross, a former Wilhelmina model and contributing fashion editor for Mirabella and New York magazine, Ross has developed a style that is fiercely individualistic after decades of fashion engrossment...

"Clothing started as an armor for me," Ross shares with WWD editor Scharf. "It was one of the ways that I protected myself from the world. It evolved into a form of creative expression. I love playing dress-up. Sometimes it creates a great outfit and sometimes it creates a person."

Ross went on to spiel to Scharf how that very "armor" molded her "Black-ish" character 'Dr. Rainbow Johnson', her career as a fashion editor, her favorite designers and much more! Read the cover story here -- http://wwd.com/eye/people/tracee-ellis-ross-stylemakers-10705360/.

The Edit by NET-A-PORTER | Screen Queens 

This year, Tracee Ellis Ross, the star of cult show Black-ish and daughter of Diana Ross, was the first black woman in 30 years to be nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

What Was Your Favorite TV Show As A Child?
Cagney and Lacey, Charlie’s Angels and The Carol Burnett Show – she was the first woman [on TV] that reminded me of me.

What Do You Watch Now? 
I’m hooked on Atlanta; it feels like conceptual art, told through the genre of TV. And Orange Is the New Black – I love that the cast actually has the diversity of humanity.

Why Has TV Overtaken Film As The Most Exciting Entertainment Medium? 
The beauty of television is that you watch it in your home. We join you, you join us, and it becomes this very intimate affair, so those images have a different, deeper impact. I love that the Johnsons [in Black-ish] are a family everyone identifies with. People of color are always asked to identify with white families on Tv; [we have] this opportunity to allow white people to identify in the other direction – and to see the sameness.

Which Show Has Changed The Game For Actresses?
We still have a lot of work to do. We still decide how we look by how other people are going to see us, as opposed to the way it feels, or the way it looks to us. Even in the election, the idea that the biggest shame in the world would be that your husband would cheat on you? That, as a woman, your agenda is to be attractive enough to hold the gaze of your husband? Television perpetuates that.

How Would You Review Black-ish? 
A comedy that deals with race, identity and culture, and what happens when you raise a family with more than you had as a kid.

What Would The TV Show Of Your Life And Its Tagline Be?
Joy – “A lady doing it her way.”
