You know what’s going on when you see that signature blue hue! Boundary-breaking entrepreneur Tracee Ellis Ross has partnered with Tiffany & Co. to become the newest global house ambassador for the iconic jewelry brand.
Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, the campaign features Ross looking stunning in a fierce curly do and onyx jumpsuit. The look is accented by Tiffany’s newest signature collection, ‘Give Me The T’.
In addition the news of the partnership, Tiffany & Co. is also sharing details of their newly-launched finery collection, T1. Representing inner strength and individuality, Tiffany’s have created a quality batch of staple pieces: including the T1 Wide Diamond hinged bangle, T1 Circle Pendant, T1 Ring, T1 Open Hoop Earrings and more. The accessories include both gold and silvers, with price ranges from $990 to $30,000.

Ross is joined by Anya Taylor-Joy and Eileen Gu as Global Ambassadors.
“Growing up, I would often wander through the flagship store on Fifth Avenue, imagining myself as a grown woman wearing the bold elegance of Tiffany’s signature diamonds,” Ross shared in a press release. “All these years later, to be the face of this iconic brand and to represent the T1 collection is a dream come true. Shooting the campaign was a welcome moment of inspiration and glamour after the challenging year that we’ve all experienced.”
Ross has been making a splash in fashion/beauty in recent years. In 2021, she was named the Diversity and Inclusion Advisor for beauty brand Ulta. She is also the founder of Pattern, a hair care line for curly and kinky hair.
Ross also spoke exclusively about the Tiffany opportunity with Elle, saying, “Having this T1 collection be about individuality is so much of what all of us are making sense of as we reemerge. While we were locked down in our homes, it was all ‘who am I in the context of other people?’ This feels like a beautiful way to reemerge.”
