Covering a wide range of characters, Ross's big screen debut was a leading role in the feature film "Far Harbor," opposite Marcia Gay Harden and Jennifer Connelly. Ross also appeared in the comedy "Hanging Up," in which she played Meg Ryan's distracted assistant.

Ross began her television career as the host of her own television show, Lifetime's "The Dish," for which she was named a "Face to Watch" by the Los Angeles Times. She has written, produced and performed in segments for cable shows, appeared as a series regular on MTV's sketch comedy "The Lyricist Lounge Show" and guest starred, hosted or co-hosted various other television. She also appeared in cameos in the Kanye West videos "The New Workout Plan" and "Touch the Sky."

As a model, Ross worked with some of the most highly regarded photographers in the fashion industry, including Herb Ritts, Peter Lindberg, Francesco Scavullo and Mario Testino. She has graced the pages of top fashion and consumer magazines, including Harper's Bazaar, Essence, Mirabella, and Life, to name a few. She has also appeared in advertising campaigns for The Gap, Donna Karan Collection, DKNY and Paul Mitchell.

Ross was honored by The Los Angeles Urban League as "Volunteer of the Year" for 2004.
