Tracee Ellis Ross Stuns in Purple Sequins in Throwback-Filled Tribute to Carol Burnett

Tracee Ellis Ross is continuing her hot streak on Instagram. Only this time, we got an unexpected appearance from comedian, Carol Burnett.

On Monday, the 48-year-old actress shared a heartfelt tribute to Burnett on her birthday in a slideshow on Instagram. A video and a few images were taken at CBS’s The Carol Burnett Show 50th Anniversary back in 2017. And while we love the sweet friendship between the two women, we couldn’t help but be distracted by Ross’s sequin ensemble from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.

“Happy birthday to @itscarolburnett, an absolute comedy legend. She took the everyday absurd and not only shined a light on it but gave us permission to laugh at it in our own lives at the same time,” she captioned the post. “A true pioneer that paved the way for others like her who didn’t have to prove that women could be smart and beautiful and funny – because she’d already established that early on. And her wacky way of expressing herself helped me to understand myself a little bit better. Thank you for breaking ground, breaking ceilings and for being so dang funny!!”

The post also featured throwback images from the Paley Honors Gala, which celebrated women in television, where Ross presented Burnett with a special award. For that occasion, the Black-ish star also looked chic in a trench-coat dress.

While we love both looks, purple is definitely your color, Tracee.
