For this year’s award ceremony, Ross featured black designers in all her looks. She confirmed as much on Twitter prior to the show, noting that she had also worn black designers in her press looks for the AMAs.
Some of our favorite pieces included the blush pink Pyer Moss suit Ross wore on the red carpet, the dramatic Gucci Dapper Dan cape, and a multi-tiered tulle gown by Off-White ― a bigger, bolder version of Serena Williams’ now infamous Off-White by Nike tennis skirts. And there were so many more.
Ross has spoken out about representation in the fashion industry before, and her outfit choices for an influential event such as the AMAs are a stunning tribute to black designers.

CLARIFICATION: An earlier version of this article said that Tracee Ellis Ross exclusively wore black designers. She featured pieces from black designers in every single look, but each look was not exclusively by a black designer.
