I don’t watch awards shows anymore, but I do keep up with red carpets religiously. And at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, Tracee Ellis Ross was the clear red carpet winner for me. Her Marc Jacobs ensemble was absolutely gorgeous, topped by an elegant head wrap that felt like an ode to vintage black Hollywood.
I mean the shoes alone are to die for.
I was ready to go all fangirl till I spotted an article on The Revelist pointing out that Ross’ ensemble is from Marc Jacob’s Spring 2018 collection — which was heavily criticized for ‘Columbusing’ African head wraps.
I’m going to hope for the best and say maybe Jacobs was trying to redeem himself by putting his designs on a woman of color at one of the most viewed and anticipated media events of the year.
Either way the ensemble is gorgeous.
