Tracee Ellis Ross takes a fashion risk in a red and black polka dot dress as she steps out in NYC… after revealing she was snubbed by Jay Leno’s booker
Tracee Ellis Ross showed off her elegant sense of style in a red and black polka dot dress with a blue collar, as she stepped out in New York City on Saturday afternoon.
The 50-year-old actress, known for her vibrant fashion looks, has styled her striking ensemble with a pair of large gold hoop earrings, black sunglasses and matching heels.
As she walked down the street, clutching an asymmetrical bag, the blackish star shone with her dark locks slicked back in a sleek, high ponytail.
Her glamorous makeup look included bronzer for a sunkissed glow, nude lipstick and a generous sweep of blush over her cheekbones.
Fans excitedly snapped photos of her on the street smiling at onlookers as she exited a building.

On Sunday, she recalled her “biggest career highlight” during an interview with Variety.
“Winning the Golden Globe (for Black-ish),” she exulted. “I had never been to the Emmys. I couldn’t join a late night talk show.”
The artist revealed that while starring in her series Girlfriends, which ran for eight seasons between 2000 and 2006, Jay Leno’s talent persona once told her publicist, “We love Tracee. Call us if she gets a role we care about.”
“That moment at the Golden Globes really put my career in a different place. I’ve always been the same person. But it changed some other things,” she told the outlet.
When asked what she hates most about Hollywood, the Los Angeles-born woman said, “The hardest part is there are a lot of frustrating moments. You’re resisting a system that frankly isn’t made for expansive liberation.”
“Fortunately I come from a family where I was taught not only to know who I am but also given an environment to thrive and prosper and become who I am and trust who I am and use my voice to not be afraid to be for authority,” she continued.
The daughter of legendary singer Diana Ross insisted that “Hollywood doesn’t scare her” and that she trusts who she is and uses her voice and is “not afraid of authority.”
Whether or not she regrets her career, the star looked back with pride on her “amazing run.”

“I spent eight years with Girlfriends and eight years with Black-ish. That’s 16 years of my life,” Tracee said. Since Black-ish I’ve made three movies and released a podcast and own a hair business. I’ve been pretty busy.’
And she still thinks the entertainment industry is “intended to support creative dreams.”
“There’s a sense that we can tell stories that expand humanity and our understanding of ourselves and each other,” she said delightedly. “And entertainment done right has the potential to open minds and hearts and really change the course of the world.”
Tracee pointed out that “there are studies that say culture drives policy.”
