Tracee Ellis Ross' 'Motown: The Musical' Premiere Dress Looks Weird, Yea Or Nay? (PHOTOS)

We usually love everything that Tracee Ellis Ross wraps around her enviable body, which is why we were shocked when the super stylish actress stepped out in what could be considered her frumpiest outfit ever.

While attending the Broadway premiere of "Motown: The Musical" on Sunday night, Tracee opted for a black draped dress that was unflattering to say the least. First of all, it looked two sizes too big and couple that with sequin appliques fastened to the front of the frock that pulled down on the fabric, and you've got yourself a sad case of droopy boobs. We know that the 40-year-old star is quite the vintage clothing enthusiast, so we're assuming this was just an old dress that needed a little work before making it's red carpet debut.

And it's a shame the dress didn't get a quick nip and tuck before the big night, since the this wasn't your usually red carpet--it was legendary.

Famed music producer and founder of Motown, Berry Gordy, was joined by a star-studded list of attendees that included Cuba Gooding Jr., Vanessa Williams, Bono and Sting. And there were Motown legends on hand like Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Mary Wilson, and of course, Tracee's iconic mother--Diana Ross.

It's unfortunate that Tracee had to experience an uncharacteristic fashion fail on such an epic night. But we're confident she'll bounce back with style.

Here's a look at Tracee's "Motown: The Musical" premiere dress. No good, right?
