As disco royalty offspring, Tracee’s star power knows no limits, and style plays a key role in how the actress has made her own mark on Hollywood. In addition to her professional accolades, she is recognised for ensembles that have solidified her status as a daringly modern icon, red carpet and beyond. While her recent Marc Jacobs jacket is arguably one of her best decisions yet, it’s not the first time that Tracee, who knows her way around a tricky trend, has looked to feathers to make a statement.
There was, for example, the unforgettable Giambattista Valli gown she wore for the 2018 InStyle Awards which had a frothy décolletage and billowing pink-and-white sleeves to rival the wings of an exotic bird. From parties to red carpets, Tracee has mastered regularly using the look as a reflection of her light, fun approach to serious style. Feathers are symbolic of the freedom she’s embraced to express herself both on and off the screen in a way that is certainly not limited to formal wear.
While part of what attracts us to feathers is not only their ability to amp up any look with a dose of confidence, adding volume and drama, their ethereal quality can also elegantly enhance more laid-back looks. Think adorned collars, delicately-trimmed kaftans, and festooned lapels. Even a basic T-shirt can get an avian upgrade with a flurry of tonal feathers added to its hem.
