The garment, adorned with cape sleeves cascading to the floor, doubled as a long train, creating a mesmerizing effect as she moved.

Layered over a black bralette and paired with an airy black maxi skirt, the ensemble was cinched at the waist with a striking black belt featuring a sculptural gold buckle – all straight from Brandon Maxwell‘s Spring/Summer 2024 Ready-to-Wear runway collection.

Styled by celebrity stylist Karla Welch, who counts Hailey Bieber, Sarah Paulson, and Olivia Wilde among her clientele, Tracee’s look effortlessly embodied the spirit of the runway collection that debuted at New York Fashion Week.

Large abstract gold earrings complemented the ensemble, while black pointed-toe Aquazzura heels with zebra-esque stripes along the sides added fierceness to her look.

Choosing to let her outfit shine, the Golden Globe awardee opted for a natural, rosy makeup look by Molly Greenwald. Warm eyeshadow, rosy cheeks, and pink lipstick perfectly accentuated her features. Hairstylist Marcia Hamilton crafted a sleek, slicked-back bun, completing the overall look with sophistication.
