Tracee Ellis Ross 40th Birthday Cover Photo

Today is my 40th Birthday! In honor of that I thought I’d share some footage from one of my best birthdays ever!

As far back as I can remember I would dress up in whatever I could my hands on -clothes, sheets, blanket, towels, anything. So, it makes sense that at 17 and ¾, I was a fashion magazine and model fanatic.

My teenage walls were plastered with magazine tear sheets of all the original super models of the 90s: Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington. I desperately wanted to be a model myself. I was signed by the Wilhemena Modeling Agency and I was starting to book small jobs here and there but mostly I spent a lot of time in front of the mirror honing my modeling skills.
