We’re Mesmerized by Tracee Ellis Ross’ "Snake Swirl" Finger Waves at the 2020 PCAs

She cited her mom as her style inspiration.

Tracee Ellis Ross is officially the Fashion Icon of 2020 and we stan. Living up to her latest moniker, the 48-year-old actress stepped onto the red carpet at the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards with a stylish oversized suit by Schiaparelli, along with eye-catching glam.

Snagging her highly-deserved award on one of the biggest nights in pop culture, the Blackish actress dished on her beauty choices for the night, as she chatted with Giuliana Rancic on the first live red carpet since the start of the pandemic.

According to the fashion influencer, her below-waist braided ponytail was created using beauty products from her very own haircare collection, PATTERN. Referring to her eye-catching finger wave as a "snake swirl" undoubtedly left us engulfed in her splendor. 

Other notable highlights from her glam included her signature red lipstick (that may just be her signature lippie: MAC's Ruby Woo ($19)) and fiery red stiletto nails to match. We’re not too surprised especially since she’s noted on numerous occasions that red lipstick is her go-to because she loves a “bold lip.”

During her speech, the honoree cited her mom and legendary singer, Diana Ross, as her style inspiration and we're sure the inspo extends into her glam as well.

Btw, did you catch her feathery pre-show hair? We're excited about what more notable beauty moments from the night will come. In case you missed it, take a look at some of the best beauty looks at the People’s Choice Awards 2020 below.
