In our current celebrity obsessed culture the last thing I want to do is contribute to the bombardment of images or media coverage of these overly sensationalized people into our daily lives. However, there is something to be said for a woman who has successfully navigated the crazy Hollywood world and managed to come out with her integrity intact. Tracee is a superb choice to launch our latest Haute Trenta feature, The Haute Trenta Style Icon. Miss Ellis Ross is shamelessly 40 years young and carving out her own way in the world. Where one may have been tempted to rest on the achievements of a super star parent Tracee has a way of making you see her sans “ Supreme” Mom. Why she’s haute?
Her style is fun, innovative, understatedly sexy, and approachable. I knew she was a girl after my own heart when I spotted her.
a. Wearing the same pair of shoes more than once and
b. Wearing a pair of fabulous “ it “ sandals to an industry event several season’s later!!!!!
Yes. Who does that? Tracee that’s who.
I love that she is a curator of clothing. She has a love for vintage. She like myself also believes that great quality and ingenious design transcends trends and transitions from decade to decade.
She also believes in speaking to the entire woman. Her site traceeellisross.com is a gem filled with fun and quirky YouTube videos, editorial fashion shots, runway critiques and even TV and book reviews. All of which are presented in a candid approachable manner. Tracee displays her love of empowering women in one of her latest videos where she answers a few reader questions. I LOVE HER.
