Tracee Ellis Ross Covers Harper’s Bazaar
Renell Medrano shot Tracee Ellis Ross for the November Home issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Styling was by EIC Samira Nasr, who put her in a Balenciaga Couture opera coat wearing Tiffany & Co. Schlumberger earrings for the cover.
Inside the issue the actress talks about the importance of home to her. “Because of the childhood that I had and my mother’s career, from an early age, even though I couldn’t define it at the time, I had to find a sense of home and safety within my body and with people. It wasn’t always about a space, and that remains for me. Home for me is about safety and embrace. It’s about shedding all the external masks that we have to wear out in the world. Home is really about beauty, safety, history. My friendships are home for me. My family is home for me. It’s an energetic connection that creates a sense of safety and groundedness, where I don’t have to wear any mask. I can just be myself.”
The issue hits newsstands on November 9th.
