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.

“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.”
