So, it was no surprise that as Tracee got dressed up for the NAACP Image Awards Sunday, she and celebrity stylist Karla Welch went with an unexpected look that made jaws drop. It also reminded fans of Lady Gaga’s inauguration outfit and the Hunger Games.

The High Note thesp wowed in a dramatic black Schiaparelli jumpsuit complete with wide-leg trousers, a ruffled skirt, structured shoulders, and zip-up detailing. Tracee completed the look with exaggerated gold-topped flatform heels that were so tall they made her look a foot taller.

But it was her huge gold headpiece that got everyone talking. The metallic statement maker sat on the side of her head and was shaped like a dove. Fans went wild when the actress shared several photos of herself on Instagram wearing the look, with one writing, “Showstopping moment!”

“The real Effie Trinket,” another fan wrote, referring to a Hunger Games character who wore a similar look. “This is giving me @ladygaga vibes at the inauguration,” another replied. 

"SCHIAPARELLI ~ @naacpimageawards," Tracee captioned the photo, which showed her standing outside in front of a black backdrop striking poses in the ensemble. 

If you’ll recall, Lady Gaga also wore a Schiaparelli look to President Joe Biden’s inauguration in January - and a massive gold dove of peace pin that also reminded everyone of the Hunger Games.
