Tracee Ellis Ross made a statement Tuesday night, choosing only to wear outfits from black designers for the 2018 American Music Awards. The “black-ish” star and AMA host wore 10 outfits the entire night. From a sleek black dress to a power suit, Ross was ready for any performer or occasion.

For her opening dance number, the second-time AMA host changed into a custom cape by Dapper Dan for Gucci over a black sequined Nicolas Jebran bodysuit, swapping out the skintight number for a glittering gold sequined CD Greene gown.
Ross later changed into something a little more political with an “I am a voter” T-shirt created by her stylist Karla Welch in collaboration with When We All Vote. She paired the top with a cherry-red Shanel Campbell skirt and Aminah Jillil shoes.
After a quick change into a glamorous pink tulle gown by Off-White and Louboutin heels, Ross managed to one-up even herself in a Sergio Hudson leopard-print catsuit, gloves, and beret, plus Casadei pumps and huge rhinestoned Gucci sunglasses.
Are you keeping up? For the next look, the fashion icon was a breathtaking in a printed bell-sleeve mermaid dress from Lavie by CK and Stuart Weitzman shoes.
She then went for something equally statement-making in a boldly printed LAVIEbyCK fishtail gown with dramatic bell sleeves, followed by a double-breasted black sequined dress.
The actress’ penultimate look featured a belted blue DÈSHON gown paired with shoulder-dusting crystal earrings by the same brand — one of which, in a quirky touch, was worn as a brooch
and finally, Ross wrapped up the show in a red Cushnie off-the-shoulder jumpsuit.
“CD Greene sculpts his dresses for effortless comfort allowing each piece to effortlessly flow and drape around the body,” his website reads. “Each CD Greene design starts with a personal appointment with his customer. Pencil and sketch pad in hand, Greene fastidiously notes the detail of each woman’s shape and form with all the prowess of a master craftsman.”
