Tracee Ellis Ross came to slay! 

The Emmy-award winning Blackish star was our early vote for red carpet fave at the 2017 Costume Institute Met Gala, arriving early to set a precedent for how you wear couture. Ross was beyond stunning in a conceptual Comme des Garçons creation.

The high shoulders and rigid structure of the dress are classic Rei Kawakubo, who is being honored at tonight's gala.

Ross has never walked the Met Gala red carpet before, but the TV star is hotter than ever, fresh off her Golden Globe Awards win. Ross is always a delight on any red carpet, and tonight was no different.
