Tracee Ellis Ross and Diana Ross
Diana Ross and daughter Tracee Ellis Ross arrive at the 2014 American Music Awards held at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live.

We all look up to our moms, often raiding their closets for vintage finds. However, when your mom is THE Diana Ross, I could only imagine the over-the-top glamour looks a young Tracee Ellis Ross snagged from her mom’s wardrobe. 

At 48-years-old, it seems the Black-ish actress is still playing in her mom’s fabulous closet (I mean, do you blame her?) Ross took to her Instagram with whopping 10.4M followers on July 27, paying homage to her ultimate diva mom. Looking almost identical to her mom, Tracee channeled an archival image of Diana Ross from an editorial, wearing the exact same beaded necklace, pairing it with a near-identical gold top. When I first saw the photo, I had to take a double-take. The genes run strong in the Ross family! 

The actress followed the post with her mom’s original photo and a final shot of herself with the caption “NAILED IT!!” And we can’t help but agree, Tracee; you indeed nailed it! Like c’mon, the resemblance is uncanny. Both featured their signature slick back hair, and she even got her mom’s iconic pose spot on, placing both her hands behind her head.

This isn’t Tracee’s first time pulling Diana Ross’s iconic looks out of the archive (nor do we see it being the last). She borrowed (although we can’t confirm it was ever returned) a tailored white pantsuit with a sequined top and black bowtie look from her mom to present her with the 2017 American Music Awards Lifetime Achievement Award.

We love that even decades later, Tracee appreciates her mom’s iconic 70s and 80s archival looks the icon donned. Please keep them coming!
