Tracee Ellis Ross payed homage to her mother, the one and only Diana Ross.
The Black-ish actress took to Instagram to share a photo of herself wearing a gorgeous beaded yellow halter dress that her mother wore in a photo shoot decades prior. In both images, mother and daughter wear their signature curly hair slicked back into a chic bun and opt for smoky eye shadow and wine-colored lipstick for their coordinating glam.
"No. 1 MAMA," Ross captioned her first photo.
"No. 2: ME," she captioned the second image, showing off her re-creation. In a third photo, Tracee shared another snapshot, showing herself throwing her arms up in the air and laughing. "No. 3: NAILED IT!!" the actress wrote.
Last November, while accepting the honor of being named a fashion icon for the People's Choice Awards, Ross expressed how her mother has influenced her love and adoration for fashion over the years.
"Obviously, I have to thank the icon herself, my mom—not only for her great parenting … but also her example, her sense of style, her epic closet, and her glamour that introduced me to the power of fashion," Ross said during her speech. "After she would finish a show and the curtain would fall, I would go onstage as a little girl and I would collect all of the beads that had fallen off of her sparkly dresses so that I could have pieces of the magic, seeds of the fashion dreams that I was cultivating for myself."
Ross also expressed to BAZAAR.com in June that experimenting with her style—and showing off her outfits on social media—has brought her joy following the emotionally trying year that was 2020.
"[Sharing my outfits] is a way to put joy in action for me. When I get dressed, I think to myself, 'Ah, I like her, I remember her!' She got lost a little bit," Ross said. "During the pandemic, I continued working and there was no question that I continued putting on my lipstick, putting on a beautiful top and earrings and necklaces and things like that, but to be going back out into the world and getting dressed for that—I missed that part of my life."
