For this year’s award ceremony, Ross wore looks exclusively from black designers. She confirmed as much on Twitter prior to the show, noting that she had also worn black designers in her press looks for the AMAs.
Some of our favorite pieces included the blush pink Pyer Moss suit Ross wore on the red carpet, the dramatic Gucci Dapper Dan cape, and a multi-tiered tulle gown by Off-White ― a bigger, bolder version of Serena Williams’ now infamous Off-White by Nike tennis skirts. And there were so many more.
Ross has spoken out about representation in the fashion industry before, and her outfit choices for an influential event such as the AMAs are a stunning tribute to black designers.
