Tracee Ellis Ross will receive the Fashion Icon Award at the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards.
The honor recognizes the Black-ish star’s “trailblazing looks and one-of-a-kind personal style over the past two decades, her passion for self-expression and how she uses her voice and reach to inspire others to believe in themselves,” E! said in announcing the news.
“Tracee Ellis Ross’ style is transcendent,” E!’s general manager of news, live events and lifestyle digital, Jen Neal, said in a statement. “Her influence in the entertainment and fashion spaces are incomparable and we are delighted to honor her with the Fashion Icon Award.”
In addition to her role on Black-ish, Ross’ production company Joy Mill Entertainment is committed to amplifying multilayered content that inspires possibility and joy, and she is nominated for a People’s Choice Award for drama movie star of 2020 for her role in The High Note.
She’s also launched her own haircare line, PATTERN, which serves the natural hair community and aims to celebrate Black beauty, and her own fashion line, co-designed with JCPenney, which was celebrated for its inclusivity and accessibility.
The 2020 People’s Choice Awards will air live on E! from Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar on Sunday Nov. 15 at 9 p.m. ET. Bad Boys for Life and This Is Us are among the film and TV projects earning the most nominations.
