Tracee Ellis Ross's "Fashion Icon" title is no longer subjective. Although we've never actually met anyone who'd contest Ross's status, the People's Choice Awards gods made it official by presenting the actor with its Fashion Icon award. And, in her second outfit of the night, Ross demonstrated just how deserving she was.
"Let your clothes be your superhero cape," Ross said, taking her own advice literally in a white Alexander McQueen cape dress cinched with a black leather harness. The voluminous tiered gown was a clear riff on this year's babydoll trend, except instead of Mary Jane flats, Ross wore thigh-high boots so tall, you couldn't even see how far they go up. The trend has been worn on the bodies and feet of celebs like Zoe Kravitz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Kruger, Chloe Sevigny, Emma Roberts, and Sophie Turner. But Ross's take on babydoll dressing is sexier and more edgy than ever thanks to her bondage-inspired accessories.
Frankly, Tracee Ellis Ross could convince us to invest in potato sacks if she ever wore one, but this particular look is delivering unquestionable fall fashion inspiration. Her flouncy dress plus tall boots styling is a foolproof equation for polished seasonal dressing (when you've got somewhere to be seen, at least — otherwise, thigh-high socks are a totally valid at-home substitute).
