Award-winning American actress and producer Tracee Ellis Ross will host The Fashion Awards 2019, the British Fashion Council confirmed in an announcement.
Borne from a legacy of style, Ross is known for her sartorial flair and taking fashion risks with ease and grace. Whether gracing the Emmys red carpet in couture, thanking her shopping habit for her oft-documented street style, or inviting her more than 9 million followers on social media to make fun of her dad sneakers, Ross uses fashion as a mean of self-expression and communication. She not only loves fashion; she has fun with it.
Best know for her Golden Globe-winning role as Dr. Rainbow Johnson on the ABC comedy series black-ish, Tracee Ellis Ross is also the Executive Producer on the ABC comedy series mixed-ish. Tracee recently wrapped production on the Focus Features comedy COVERS alongside Dakota Johnson, which is set for a May 2020 release.
The Fashion Awards 2019 take place on Monday 2nd December at the Royal Albert Hall in London and are attended by designers, business and industry leaders, media, retailers, creatives, models and celebrities from across the globe to celebrate extraordinary creative fashion talent.
They raise money for the BFC’s charitable and business support initiatives. General public tickets for The Fashion Awards 2019 are on sale and available on Ticketmaster.
