When it comes to fashion, Tracee Ellis Ross will do whatever it takes!

The actress, 51, wore a sculptural top to the 2023 Emmy Awards on Monday, and made sure it got to the show in perfect condition — by lying horizontally the entire way there.

In a clip shared by her stylist, Karla Welch, Ross is draped across Welch as she planks in the backseat of a car.

"Hi Karla! I’m very committed to this look. I’m committed to you,” she says in the video, giving a thumbs up to the camera.

After arriving at the ceremony — where she presented the Emmy for outstanding comedy series — Ross posed on the red carpet in the stiff, high-neck top from Sportmax’s Spring 2024 Collection, which Welch paired with a matching midi white skirt complete with side slits.

The Black-ish star livened up the look with a boxy gold clutch from Jeffrey Levinson, which sat on her lap as she rode to the show, and a pair of matching metallic pumps.

She also sported a bright red lip and pulled her hair back into a sleek, high ponytail, letting her Pomellato earrings shine.

Later in the evening, when Ross took the stage to present with Natasha Lyonne, she swapped her futuristic red-carpet look for a vintage-inspired look to recreate an iconic moment from I Love Lucy.

During the tribute with Lyonne, 44, and Emmys host Anthony Anderson, Ross evoked Lucy in a ‘50s getup complete with a short, curly wig inspired by the character.

Commenting on the actress' getup during the skit, Lyonne — who stayed in her red-carpet clothes — said, “Ah, okay, I see. So you went all in.”

“I always do, Natasha Lyonne,” Ross replied.

During the I Love Lucy-inspired bit, the pair struggled to grab chocolates off of a conveyor belt, instead shoving them in their mouths and piling them into their clothes.

Then, with their mouths still full of chocolate from the reenactment, the actresses mumbled their way through the announcement of the winner for outstanding comedy series: The Bear. (The show beat out Abbott Elementary, Jury Duty, Barry, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Only Murders in the Building, Ted Lasso and Wednesday)
