Tracee Ellis Ross is standing tall!
Almost a foot taller, in fact, thanks to the truly spectacular platform shoes she wore to the 52nd NAACP Image Awards.
The “Black-ish” star’s statement shoes were white leather platform boots with golden toes from the haute couture label Schiaparelli.
Ross paired her elevated footwear with a “fitted coat-dress," "extra-wide pants in double twill wool," and "gilded brass dove hat," according to a release from the label.
Her avian headpiece echoes the giant dove brooch, also by Schiaparelli, that Lady Gaga wore at President Biden’s inauguration earlier this year.
Like other awards shows during the pandemic, the NAACP Image Awards looked a little different this year. While there was a live broadcast, the red carpet experience was primarily virtual, and many celebrities showed off their looks from home.
Issa Rae, who won the award for outstanding actress in a comedy series for “Insecure,” sported a flowing, white Prada gown with metallic accents.
“Black-ish” star Marsai Martin, who won for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series, sported a beautiful, quirky look from Christian Siriano.
Actor and director Regina King wore an earth-toned custom Oscar de la Renta gown with a coordinating cape.
“Lovecraft Country” star Jurnee Smollett wore a green and black Alexandre Vauthier dress. She revealed that she tuned into the awards ceremony from her living room.
Oscar nominee Cynthia Erivo sported a drop-waisted dress with a mesh bodice from Lanvin.
Michelle Obama made a virtual appearance, sporting a mint-green blazer and gold hoop earrings.
There may not have a been an actual red carpet, but these looks from home all delivered!
