The actress discussed her joy in representing Tiffany & Co. during an interview with Elle.

What We Know:

  • Justine Carreon writes that the classic jewelry brand selected Ellis Ross to showcase their Tiffany T1 “Give Me the T” campaign because of her “own fierce brand of individuality.” The Elle exclusive mentions that Ellis Ross loves fashion and that her passion for clothes helps her bring joy to audiences.
  • Furthermore, the actress believes one must stay fashionable even in the hardest moments. To her, glamour symbolizes a sense of identity and pride.

“Glamour to me is a ‘how,’ not a ‘what.’ It’s how you choose things, what makes your heart light up and your heart sing,” says Ellis Ross.

  • The Girlfriends and Black-ish star’s partnership reminds her of her childhood; she grew up living close to New York City’s Fifth Avenue Tiffany & Co. flagship store. As a young girl, she would wander around the shop envisioning herself as a grown woman wearing “the bold elegance of Tiffany’s signature diamonds.” She added that her dream came true.

  • Alongside this, Ellis Ross told PEOPLE that the pieces in the Tiffany T1 “Give Me the T” collection offer people infinite opportunities for self-expression. It also allows one to use the pieces to reflect or change their moods.
  • The campaign’s message of individuality really attracted Ellis-Ross. She informed Carreon that the project’s theme reflects many’s thought processes as things return to normal after the pandemic; she states that many people meditated on their purpose while in quarantine, so having a new sense of self “feels like a beautiful way to reemerge.”
  • Throughout the pandemic, Ellis Ross also expanded her individuality by being of service. In 2020, she spoke at the Democratic National Convention and used her Instagram to discuss the importance of voting. In addition, she also used her social media platforms to inform her followers about the Black Lives Matter movement. Her outspokenness on such topics truly embodies the grace and extravagance of Tiffany & Co.

Additionally, Tiffany & Co. selected freestyle skier Eileen Gu and actress Anya Taylor-Joy to portray their pieces with Ellis Ross.
