Who Wore It Better? Tracee Ellis Ross and Alicia Keys Go Head-to-Head in Orange Leather ‘Fit

Two superstars and one $6,800 jumpsuit. The pumpkin-hued leather Salvatore Ferragamo one-piece outfit is just what fit the bill for Tracee Ellis Ross and Alicia Keys five months apart. But who wore it better?

“Black-ish” actress Ross wore the outfit first. In May, the TV star posted two photos sitting delightfully in the pumpkin-colored outfit. Ross rested with her hair tied back into a low bun and accompanied by a red lip. She paired the eye-catching jumpsuit from Ferragamo’s fall/winter 2019 collection with rust-colored, peep-toe, open-heeled Balenciaga boots.

“SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW ~ @ferragamo leather flight suit (new) with @balenciaga boots (old- way old. keep the good stuff),” read Ross’ Instagram caption.

Fans happily applauded the stylish star’s outfit choice.

“Just woooow😍😍😍”

“YOU are the reason I have fallen in love with jumpsuits. LOVE your bold and fearless style!!! 😍😍”

“😍 love the outfit🔥🔥”

By the fall it was Keys’ turn to don the same lamb-leather outfit.

The former “The Voice” coach sported the look for an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in October to promote her new autobiography “More Myself.” She posed atop a piano for a photo that she shared on Instagram. Keeping up her natural-leaning appearance by going easy on the makeup, the singer wore a long braided ponytail draped around her shoulder, thick gold-colored hoop earrings and nude-colored, open-heeled, pointed-toe pumps.

“Come on @jimmykimmellive!! Let’s have some fun in Brooklyn!! ✨✨✨💥💥💥 Fire fit @ferragamo 🔥,” read the caption.

Fans instantly applauded the star’s ensemble.

“This outfit is everything!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥”

“YASSSS QUEEN! Just spreading your light with us, the world needs to hear you!! This outfit is just 🔥🔥🔥❕@aliciakeys”

“Where did you get the jumpsuit @aliciakeys it’s bad please let me know”
