We all knew that Tracee Ellis Ross could act but some may not have realized she had such a killer swimsuit body. She showed off her curves as she celebrated directing her first episode of the hit show Black-ish on Tuesday.

The gorgeous actress, 45, wore a pretty canary yellow one piece for a celebratory video that was made to mark her first day on set as a director.

The clip of her in the bathing suit is short but you can clearly see it fit her well. Between her toned limbs and her flat stomach, not to mention her cleavage, plenty of people are going to be wishing she was wearing a swimsuit more often in front of the cameras.

To show just how excited she was to have completed her first day in the director’s chair she captioned the video, “FINISHED MY FIRST DAY OF DIRECTING AND FEELING GOOD.”

The Golden Globe winner had announced she would be directing an episode of this season’s show, titled “Fifty-Three Percent” on Instagram on February 2 while holding a script in front of her face.

She also confirmed the news to People Magazine, saying, “It’s not my first time directing, but it’s my first time directing here.

“I’ve gotta be honest: I’m a little bit nervous because I heard Tracee Ellis Ross only likes to receive direction in a whisper tone, while Anthony Anderson (Andre “Dre” Johnson Sr in the show) only likes direction given through song…

“All jokes aside, I’m really looking forward to working with my TV family in a new capacity.”

In 2017, Tracee Ellis Ross won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of anaesthesiologist Doctor Rainbow Johnson. She was the first black woman in 30 years to win.

It should also be noted that she got an Emmy nomination as well and in 2018 she won a NAACP Image Award for the same role.

The show has been airing on ABC since 2014 and her co-star, Anthony Anderson did double duty at the Image Awards, both hosting and picking up his own award.
