Actress Tracee Ellis Ross, who is the daughter of legendary singer Diana Ross, thrilled her 7.6 million-plus Instagram followers with a throwback snap of her attending prom as an 18-year-old. The starlet frequently shares shots of her fashion-forward outfits when she’s attending industry events, but the nostalgic peek back into her past proved that she has always had a strong sense of style.
The triple-photo Instagram update showcased Tracee’s ’90s-period ensemble from multiple angles.
In the first snap, the actress stood in front of a patterned sectional sofa in a neutral space, and a large window with closed blinds could also be seen in the background. For the shot, Tracee struck a simple pose for the camera while flashing a big smile.
The stunner rocked a dark gray dress, with a figure-hugging silhouette that skimmed over her curves. The piece featured thick straps that stretched over Tracee’s shoulders, along with a modest neckline that revealed little more than a glimpse of her collar bones. Although the design of the dress was simple, Tracee added her own flair to the ensemble with some unique accessories. She rocked a chunky gold bangle, a pair of statement earrings, and some flat shoes with ankle straps.
For the second snap, Tracee moved to a kitchen-like area and appeared to be having a little more fun with her pose. While popping her booty out and smiling for the camera, she tangled her hands in her hair, which was loose and styled to embrace her natural texture. Although the picture was slightly blurry on one side, Tracee opted to share the snap with her Instagram followers nonetheless.
The actress finished off the post with a third shot of her chic prom look, which she clarified was from Giorgio Armani in the caption.

Tracee’s fans couldn’t seem to get enough of the stunning throwback snap. Within two hours of going live, the post received more than 1,150 comments and racked up 126,100 likes.

“You. Have. Not. Aged,” wrote one fan, followed by a series of heart-eyes emoji.
Another fan referenced an earlier role of Tracee’s, writing, “looks like Joan on the first episode of Girlfriends when she was celebrating her birthday. Literally you don’t age.”
“You’ve always been so chic and I love it,” added a third fan.
“Always been a mood!” commented a fourth Instagram user.
Tracee frequently shares snaps of her stunning ensembles when she’s ready to hit the red carpet. At the Oscars this year, Tracee rocked a gold gown with a plunging neckline that highlighted her assets, as previously reported by The Inquisitr. The look served up some major drama, giving off goddess vibes.
