Tracee Ellis Ross is known for turning it out in couture on the Emmy Awards red carpet. And while this year's virtual awards show looks different, she's still bringing high-fashion to her fans.

Ross transformed her backyard into her own personal red carpet to debut her super-glam look: a gold, lamé ruffle-embellished Alexandre Vauthier gown, Jimmy Choo heels and vintage Tiffany & Co. jewelry, styled with the help of her go-to fashion pro Karla Welch.

"How fun to get dressed up! Can’t say I miss the frenetic energy of the red carpet or wearing high heels, but boy do I miss a pretty dress!! #blackish #emmys," the nominee for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for her role in Black-ish shared on Instagram.

Ross' Emmy look even featured a matching gold mask which she made sure to debut on her red carpet — along with a master class on how to pose.

"I made my own red carpet for the #Emmys, complete with some camera clicks 😂😂😂 yes it’s a little janky, but hey—it was fun! #blackish," she shared in a festive Instagram video.

Throughout the day, the style star was sharing throwbacks of years past, getting her fans excited for the fashion that was to come.

She posted a video of her famous hot pink Valentino Haute Couture off-shoulder gown which topped best dressed lists in 2018.

She also reflected on one of her favorite looks — the one-shoulder, cutout white Ralph Lauren gown she wore in 2016.
