Today, I am debuting a new segment called Stylish without a Stylist. This segment will highlight the lovely celebrities who have acquired their own style and have stayed true to themselves throughout their career. They do not require the help of a stylist for outings, but may be styled for magazine and photo shoots where magazine editors prefer to style models.
I am going to start my segment by highlighting Tracee Ellis Ross. As you may know she is the daughter of Diana Ross. She has made a name for herself in the television and film industry. Her most famous rolls ( to me at least) have been in the show Girlfriends and the movie Daddy’s Little Girls.
More recently she has appears in the move Labor Pains, staring our very favorite Lindsey Lohan.
Before her entertainment career she attended Dalton School in Manhattan and the Institut Le Rosey in Switzerland. She was then a model in her teens. For college, she attended Brown University and graduated in 1994 with a degree in theater arts. She worked in the fashion industry upon graduation as a fashion editor for Mirabella and New York magazine. Ross is an award winning volunteer and award winning actress in the comedy series Girlfriends.
Tracee’s style is unmistakable. She is classic and elegant which is a reflection of her personality as well. She envelopes the style of her mother Diana Ross. She even admits that she uses a few pieces from her mothers old wardrobe collection to add a unique twist to her everyday outfits.
She is a unique woman whose style is very holistic. She has a look that would allow her to pull off clothing from all centuries. I wouldn’t mind seeing her in a swingers dress, or in those leotards that Beyonce and Ciara are wearing now-a-days.
Tracee makes a lot of appearances at parties but I would love to see more of her in the movies and television again. She is funny and charming and I cant get enough of her on Girlfriends.
She is very deserving of the first spotlight in Stylish without a Stylist because she is timeless, beautiful, poised, and is comfortable in her own skin. She has truly found her own style that works for her and she carries that theme throughout her entire wardrobe, which is why whenever she is photo-ed she looks marvelous. This is how you can look if you find a style that works well with your personality, lifestyle and illuminates your best features.
So here’s to you Tracee, you go girl! Keep doing what your doing because your doing it RIGHT!!! Living it, loving it, owning it!
