It’s hard to pinpoint her style or categorize it under one umbrella, but if we have to describe it in one word, we’d go with “bold”. There’s no style, designer, label, or color she won’t try, and that’s exactly how she keeps us guessing. Mixing prints, going old school, and putting her own spin on new trends, Ross manages to dress with an effortless quality – and without being apologetic about it. Whether you live for red-carpet looks or more relatable everyday attire, there’s fashion gold here for everyone to enjoy.

Not one to overdo it on the makeup, Ross is a fan of a bold lip, a little mascara, and a bit of shimmer to give her that youthful glow. Sporting every shade from deep maroon to vibrant orange, she knows the power of a good lipstick in tying a whole look together. As for her hair preference, au naturel is usually her go-to, though she has been known to rock a sleek bun. With outfits so bold, it seems that her mantra for makeup tends to be “less is more”. Duly noted.
