Helmed by creative director Francesco Risso, WWD reported the “eclectic spring collection was about joy and rebellion,” adding “Risso put his stamp on the surroundings with a coed lineup that doubled down on brand codes such as stripes, checks and flowers, all done with an unapologetically eccentric twist.”

Regarding her style, Ross has been adding vibrant pops of color to layered winter-ready looks, with this one being her latest. She arrived at the “Candy Cane Lane” movie premiere in November wearing a black Brandon Blackwood gown with a yellow cape.

Along with her acting career, Ross is the founder of hair care brand Pattern Beauty, which offers styling products, hair accessories and tools for curly hair.

“I have built a business that requires all of us to lean in with our hearts and not just our minds in service of the curly, coily and tight-textured community — that North Star is the magic of what we do,” Ross told WWD in an April interview.
