Yes, Tracee Ellis Ross Only Wore Black Designers While Hosting The 2018 AMAS

Including Off-White™ and Pyer Moss.

On Tuesday night, Tracee Ellis Ross hosted the 2018 American Music Awards. Prior to the kickoff of the live show, Ross who is a joy to watching during awards season hit the red carpet in a stunning pink and black suit by Pyer Moss. This look which was followed by nearly a dozen pieces by black designers styled by Karla Welch was the beginning of a historic night.

For her opening number, Ross wore a lavish Dapper Dan for Gucci cape, which then led to a gold sequin dress by CD Greene. Another poignant look of the night featured an oversized red skirt by Shanel Campbell, a designer who has created a look for Solange in the past. Up next, Ross donned an Off-White™ tulle dress, a leopard print bodysuit by Sergio Hudson and a vibrant gown by Claude Lavie Kameni.

Additional head-turning looks featured a sequin dress by Balmain and a blue suit by Dèshon. Her closing number featured a well-tailored red Cushnie jumpsuit. Each piece shed a light on the immense talent which exists within the black fashion community. Similarly, as a host during the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards, Issa Rae who was styled by Jason Rembert wore all black designers. Though many black designers have to wait years for their designs to reach the mainstream, Ross’ decision was a positive action.
