Issa Rae In Rosie Assoulin – ‘Black Panther’ World Premiere

As always, Issa Rae looked like she was having a ball on the red carpet while attending the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ on Monday (January 29) in Hollywood, California.

The actress tried to recreate the models efforts to showcase the most prominent detail of her Rosie Assoulin Resort 2018 dress, which instantly took me back to 2010 when Blake Lively tried to recreate the billowing runway effect in her Lanvin look.

The colours of the panel are inspired by the bold bouquets sold at New York bodegas and are a striking contrast to the minimal tone dress.

I love that Issa kept the other details of her look to a bronze hue as not to upstage the dress.

Issa Rae In Markarian – Power in Women’s Cocktail Event

Issa Rae lit up the night at the Power in Women’s Cocktail Event at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival on Saturday (January 20) in Park City, Utah.

The ‘Insecure’ actress dressed up a dark shirt and jeans with a shimmering Markarian Pre-Fall 2018 Rainbow Stripe Sequin Wallflower Wrap Coat.

I was captivated by the glistening bands of color on the topper.

And then I got to the footwear.

I will make concessions for the boots because it’s Sundance, but I feel deflated as this was a missed opportunity for a fabulous pair of black boots.

Issa Rae In Altuzarra – An Artist at the Table Cocktail Reception @ Sundance Film Festival

Issa Rae was at An Artist at the Table cocktail reception and dinner on Thursday (January 18), held during the 2018 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The ‘Insecure’ star is anything but on the red carpet, as she continues to confidently rock bright colours and bold embellishment.

This ruby-hued Altuzarra Spring 2018 top and skirt checked the box on latter category for sure, with sequins, beads, and plenty of shimmer.

However, between the length and the wide slit to reveal the plain skirt underneath, the look landed in slightly awkward territory.

But, as per, her styling was on point, and you could say that her dazzling smile even outshone all that embellishment.

Issa Rae In Marc Jacobs – 2018 NAACP Image Awards

Issa Rae shone at the 2018 NAACP Image Awards on Monday (January 15) in Pasadena, California, joining Tracee Ellis Ross and Storm Reid.

A dazzling outfit was in order given that she was nominated for three awards for her work on ‘Insecure.’

This Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 gown was made for the red carpet as the elbow-length sleeves and high neck were juxtaposed with an open back and a plain black skirt panel with tie.

It was 360 degrees of glamour.

A gold clutch coordinated with the graphic pattern in the dress.

Marie Claire’s 3rd Annual Image Makers Awards Red Carpet Roundup

A host of stars joined Tracee Ellis Ross, Emma Stone, Kiersey Clemons and Yara Shahidi for Marie Claire’s 3rd Annual Image Makers Awards on Thursday (January 11) in West Hollywood, California.

Issa Rae: A part of me was longing for a more defined shape to this tangerine Prada gown, but between the colour, the all-over crystal embroidery and that infectious smile, I was totally charmed by this look.

Michelle Monaghan: When I saw Michelle in this beige Alex Perry dress with matching Christian Louboutin ‘ Toufrou’ pumps, I was looking for a break in its one-noteness somewhere; but her Irene Neuwirth 18k gold, carved strawberry pink opal, turquoise and diamond pavé earrings weren’t enough.

2018 Golden Globe Awards Parties

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards were a study in many glamorous renditions of the colour black. And, for the most part, the Globes after parties followed suit with the hue taking on all measures of late-night allure.

Diane Kruger: After a regally glamorous entrance at the Globes, Diane was at the InStyle and Warner Bros. post-party, where she imbued black, cropped trousers with a bit of creamy lace in this Alexander McQueen Spring 2018 ensemble. I have a feeling that the tattered, asymmetrical effect of the lace bustier top will turn some away from the more experimental look.

Tessa Thompson: At HBO’s official after party in LA, Tessa suited up in an Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2017 Couture menswear-inspired look that delivered plenty of intriguing edge when styled with the MATEO jewelry and bauble-accented sandals. I was happy for the sheer shirting underneath to balance the boxier shape of the tuxedo blazer.

Nina Dobrev: The actress flaunted her toned abs at the InStyle party in this Ralph Lauren cutout gown. Even with the futuristic liquid-silver paneling, something about the look read a bit dated. Alexis Bittar choker completed her look.

Issa Rae In Atelier Prabal Gurung – 2018 Golden Globe Awards

Issa Rae shimmered at the 75th Annual Golden Globes Awards on Sunday (January 7) in Beverly Hills, California.

The Best Actress Television Series Musical or Comedy nominee participated in the black dress code with her Atelier Prabal Gurung gown.

This was a princess moment for her, but the dress’s dark hue and the sexy neckline and slit gave it a more mature feel.

My inclination would be to remove the necklace as its chunkiness distracts from the finer details of the look.

Her low bun and soft smokey eye were more successful.
