In an homage to friend Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington shared her own “first dip” video on Instagram on July 12. 

“It’s time for me to have some down time, some quiet time, some relaxation,” Washington explained in her clip. “And for me, being in water is the best place for me to do that.”

She then dedicated her video to Ross, who coined the “first dip” phrase on social media, as she often shares similar content on her own IG account. The Little Fires Everywhere star donned a blue-and-white Dolce & Gabbana bikini for the occasion, which she accented with gold hoop earrings, a long pendant necklace, several bracelets and a few rings. Washington let her hair down and stalled before eventually submerging herself in the water.

“That’s fun, Tracee, thanks!” Washington exclaimed after emerging from the outdoor oasis.

@kerrywashington I LOVE THIS AND I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!❤️,” Ross declared in the comments.

“When Tracy dip we dip just like that! 🌊,” someone else noted.

“Literally a goddess without makeup how 😍😍😍,” another fan wrote.

“the way she kept finding little things to stop her from going under and accidentally delaying it!” an additional follower observed. “ilysm kerry 😭🫶🏼.”
