Behind The Scenes: Tracee Ellis Ross Feels The Fashion in Uptown Magazine

October 5, 2015

Actress Tracee Ellis Ross is featured in the latest issue of Uptown magazine, and she let's loose with her sense of style and fashion. She credits all her style experiences to her love for magazines.

“I have loved magazines since I was a child,” she said. “And let me explain something, I do not read magazines, I look at the pictures … When I was in high school I would make wish boards. They were feelings and images, not words. It was all fashion.”

During her interview, she also spoke on outlook on life, her personality, and how her mother Diana Ross helped pave her way in Hollywood.

On Diana Ross paving her way:

“My mom’s career gave me the benefit of a great life and influenced my style and who I am as a person. I felt afraid about that early on in my career, [but] I am comfortable enough in my own skin now. And Hollywood does not work like that. They will unlock the door, but they sit back and wait to see how you are going to walk through the door.”
