Tracee Ellis Ross Donned a Glorious Golden Gown at the Emmys (& Looked Like Royalty)

The 2020 Emmys may be foregoing a star-studded red carpet this year, but it didn't stop Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross from gracing our screens with a show-stopping golden gown.

The 47-year-old actress shared pics of her glamorous look on Instagram (before appearing on the live-cast), sharing her excitement at the opportunity to get dolled up for the event. She wrote, "How fun to get dressed up! Can’t say I miss the frenetic energy of the red carpet or wearing high heels, but boy do I miss a pretty dress!! #blackish #emmys."

Ross looked like a real-life Emmy Award with her Alexandre Vauthier dress and matching gold Jimmy Choos. The star also credited stylist Karla Welch for her look and Tracey Levy for her flawless makeup. As for her slick hair-do, the Pattern founder noted that she did it on her own, using her own brand's products. 

The High Note star also flaunted a matching golden face mask. One fan wrote, "You look AMAZING!!!" Another wrote, "Wow. What a dress!! You are gorgeous!!" 

Ross landed an Emmy nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Black-ish, where she plays Rainbow Johnson. When she learned the good news, she wrote on Instagram, "What a special treat of a day! Thank you @televisionacad for this sweet nomination for my work on #blackish. Congrats also to @anthonyanderson, Michelle Cole and our costume dept, @araxi_lindsey and our hair department for you nominations, and @issarae, Christina, @rachelbrosnahan, @lindacardellini, and Catherine and all the other incredible people nominated."

Although the actress didn't take home the trophy for Lead Actress, that golden outfit definitely deserves an award on its own!
