    Tracee Ellis Ross, daughter to Diana Ross/inventor of the color magenta, hosted the American Music Awards last night. Like most people who spend two-plus hours in front of a camera and on a stage in front of millions of people, she changed her outfit a number of times. As she mentioned on her Instagram and Twitter before the show, all of the designers in her rotation were black.

    Featured were well-known names like Olivier Rousteing and Virgil Abloh, but Ross also highlighted lesser-known names like Déshon, a recent graduate from Parsons, and Claude Lavie Kameni. Check out all 10 looks ahead, which she also outlined on her Twitter feed throughout the show. Now here’s a woman who does the culture proud. 

    First up, we have Ross in a Pyer Moss baby pink pantsuit by Kerby Jean-Raymond.

    Next, the actress wore a Dapper Dan x Gucci cape. “We are a new kind of army. We lean on each other. We have each other’s backs,” she wrote on Twitter.

    Not one to shy away from making a statement—be it fashion or political—Ross wore an “I am a voter” T-shirt made in collaboration with When We All Vote and her stylist Kara Welch. She paired it with a skirt by Shanel Campbell.
