Tracee Ellis Ross Posts Childhood Warhol Picture, Putting Your TBT Pic to Shame

By  | 

Tracee Ellis Ross released a throwback photo of herself last night on Instagram that put everybody else’s ” Throwback Thursday” posts to shame.

The actress posted a picture of her 11-year-old self taken by the legendary Andy Warhol in the 80’s with the caption, “A Polaroid taken of me by ANDY WARHOL! It was maybe 1982/3! #tbt #AndyWarhol”

Andy Warhol had a good relationship with Tracee’s mother, Diana Ross and had featured her on the cover of his Interview magazine as well as did the iconic cover art for her 1982 album Silk Electric. The Instagram picture just so happens to look a lot like the one that Warhol did of Tracee’s mother, Diana Ross in 1982 for the album leading us to believe that the two pictures may have been taken at the same time.

The mother-daughter resemblance is unbelievable. Take a look.

    I remember those Warhol pieces, but I’ve never seen Tracee as a kid.
