We think of Tracee Ellis Ross as a constant source of fashion inspiration, and she came by her style sensibility naturally. As the daughter of Diana Ross, the Black-ish actress grew up in a world full of high fashion, and according to her latest Instagram post, she had dreams of being a supermodel from a young age.
The 49-year-old actress just shared a video from one of her first runway walks at the mere age of 18, where she was accompanied by her mother. She posted this vintage clip to honor French fashion designer Thierry Mugler, who passed away just yesterday.
Ross told the story behind the video in her caption, where she said, “I had the honor of walking for @muglerofficial twice: 1991 & 1992. When I was 18 then 19 years old. I desperately wanted to be a model. But, Super Model-dom was way out of my reach until my mother got a phone call from the incredible @manfredthierrymugler. My mother agreed to walk in the show as long as they allowed me to model in the show as well.”
