Tracee Ellis Ross Magnifies Black Fashion on AMA Stage
If you were tuned into the American Music Awards Tuesday evening, you likely noticed actress and comedian Tracee Ellis Ross was back as the Master of Ceremony. And with her return was also a night filled with laughs, dancing, and undeniable fashion slaying! Ms. Ross had tweeted earlier Tuesday that she would be wearing black designers during the course of the evening.
And that she did! Giving both stage and homage TO THE CULTURE!
With the continued under-representation of black fashion designers and fashion creatives all while the industry-at-large continually capitalizes on black culture globally, many celebrities are using fashion as a form of activism. Using the red carpet and awards shows as cultural moments to highlight and elevate the creativity and talents of black fashion designers.
