I can't help but to be overjoyed about Tracee Ellis Ross's continued success. As a black woman who grew up watching the big-haired beauty on television and the big screen, witnessing her continue to thrive decades later brings about so many emotions. In fact, it's as if whenever she wins, black women everywhere win.
So as she continues to take over, most notably in beauty with the official drop of her hair care line, Pattern Beauty, her triumphs are being celebrated by publications far and wide. Needless to say, when she announced that she would be the October 2019 cover girl for Essence, I wasn't surprised — I was truly ecstatic. Check out the pivotal spread and interview ahead.
What a moment this is.
Everyone's favorite girlfriend is once again proving that black women are so magical in so many ways. And while this isn't Ross's first time on the cover of Essence, it feels brand-new every single time. Check out the entire interview now on Essence.com.
