As you can tell, we've had plenty of opportunities to enjoy her fashion choices while she graced the red carpet.
Her Fashion Journey through the Years
In 2018, she stepped onto the Teen Choice Awards red carpet, looking dashing in an embroidered mini-skater dress accentuated with beautiful ankle boots. The multi-colored embroidery is set on a black background, creating a psychedelic feel. It showed us her fun side as she put together the fall look to envy.
A year later, she took inspiration from everyone's favorite cartoon fashionista, Cinderella. She wore a white gown with sheer detailing at the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards. To make the dress her own, it had decorative brown prints that complemented her skin tone well while also breaking the monotony of white. The stand-out dress perfectly epitomized her sense of style. She accentuated her dress with a gold clutch to finish off the look.
Fast forward a year later, and she attended the NAACP Image Awards wearing a lovely lavender dress with an eye-catching oversized puffed sleeve and silver, high-heel platform sandals. She also attended the 2020 BAFTA Tea Party in Los Angeles in a work of art. The sheer skirt, sporting beautiful embroidery, stood out on the red carpet, even amid other celebrities and fashion icons.
She also modeled on the runway at the 2020 American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection fashion show. Again, she rocked a stunning red dress with a thigh-high slit for that sexy touch.
There's no doubt that Ross loves to rock a dress whenever the occasion calls for one. Notably, she always looks good wearing one. Whether she's at the Emmy's or the premiere of one of her films, you can trust Ross to step on the red carpet in an awe-inspiring dress.
Away from the red carpet, Ross loves simple, casual, and comfortable dressing.
Though young, her trajectory as an acting talent seems to be on the up and up. What will Lyric do fashion-wise?
