Tracee Ellis Ross was every bit a Grecian goddess at the White House Nordic State Dinner hosted Friday (May 13) in Washington, D.C.  The actress wowed at the event, draped in a stunning off-white silk chiffon cut-out gown from Ashti Studio‘s 2015 Fall/Winter ready-to-wear-collection.

The crowning accent, however, was Ross’ hair! Instead of her signature textured the bob, she switched up her look rocking two near waist-length cornrows styled by Yene Damtew.

It seems Ross was feeling her look as much as we were. She took to Instagram to share a quick clip, exclaiming: “I’m so excited. Look at my hair and stick earring… Oh my God! Look at it!” She also captioned the clip saying we should expect to see the look again.

Are you feeling her new ‘do? Is it hype or hmm?
