Tracee Ellis Ross Stars in Kenzo’s Spring/Summer 2017 Ad Campaign

by Paige Reddinger

Tracee Ellis Ross is really having a moment. The Black-ish star took home a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series and now she’s in Kenzo’s Spring/Summer ’17 Campaign. She stars alongside actor and activist Jesse Williams and musician Kelsey Lu, who happens to be a classically trained cellist. The trio was photographed by Los Angeles-based twin photographer team Jalan and Jibril Durimel.

Ross, Williams, and Lu will star in an upcoming original short film for Kenzo called “Music is My Mistress,” which was written and directed by Kahlil Joseph. The Grammy-nominated writer and director is known for his work on Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” and his film “Black Up” featuring music by Shabazz Palaces was deemed “utterly extraordinary” by the The New Yorker. The film comes out late this month and will mark Lu’s acting debut. The short film for Kenzo will be Joseph’s second for the brand and comes out in late February.
