Tracee Ellis Ross' Pre-BET Awards Dinner Dress Makes It Clear Why She's Hosting This Year's Show

Even though I'm totally over awards season, there's always room for that last one. And Tracee Ellis Ross' Pre-BET Awards Dinner dress is just the thing to get me excited (again). Even though we don't have a table at this perfect summer dinner, the red carpet is giving me a little taste of what's to come on Sunday night. And if Ross dresses anything like she did for the dinner, it's going to be a great one.

As one of the hosts for the 2015 BET Awards — alongside her on-screen husband Anthony Anderson — Ross made sure to step up her fashion game, just in time. So when she appeared for the Debra Lee pre-dinner, she looked like she came straight off a resort collection runway (naturally). Wearing a lacy floral, white and green Veronica Leroy dress with white Christian Louboutin pumps, an uber-feminine Ross totally glowed. It's such a welcome contrast from her cool and comfy mom style on Black-ish . But as a true fan, I'm getting some really serious Joan Clayton vibes from this look.

Not only was the dress fabulous, but Ross made the ultimate accessorizing move. She pulled out the same earrings that she wore to her prom, and wore them like any vintage-lover would. Her classic top knot bun tied the whole look together, literally from head to toe. It's everything I could ever wish for, wrapped up in one look. All of this is just another reason why she so deserves this break back into the spotlight, because Girlfriends may or may not be the most underrated show that ever lived. Congrats, Tracee.
