It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…Tracee Ellis Ross rocking a badass outfit.

Yesterday, the Black-ish star, 48, shared a slideshow on her personal Instagram account, featuring a variety of photos from her backyard shoot. The pics were taken shortly before Ross made a virtual appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and her confidence is top-notch.

The first photo shows Ross sitting on red patio furniture as she stares directly at the camera. As the slideshow progresses, the pics get even quirkier—like number six, which features the actress poking her head into the frame.

Ross is wearing an oversized red suit by Sterling Ruby, which has black peek-a-boo inserts on the pants and jacket that pay tribute to ’Twas the Night Before Christmas. She completed the look with recycled accessories, including boots by The North Face and earrings by Celine.

She captioned the post, “On @fallontonight. U ready?”

Ross went on to share her outfit details, which consisted of multiple re-wears: “@sterlingruby suit selected and thrown over the gate by @karlawelchstylist (boy do I miss you!) and styled by me out of my closet. Those are my #thenorthfacexgucci boots and some cutie old @celine earrings. Hair by @naivashaintl, makeup by @tashareikobrown and my roots by @amandageorgeroil.”

Fans didn’t hold back on showing their support in the comments section. “Come thru Tracee,” one person wrote. Another said what we’re all thinking: “It’s the braid out for me [heart-eye emoji].”

Leave it to Tracee Ellis Ross to bring the heat.
