‘Insecure’ Premiere Season 2

HBO celebrated the Season 2 premiere of ‘Insecure’ on Saturday (July 15) in Inglewood, California with actress Yvonne Orji and executive producer and star Issa Rae in attendance.

Yvonne Orji: Donning a darling Alice and Olivia embroidered mini, Yvonne didn’t play it safe with her footwear. Instead, she wore electric, tangerine Stuart Weitzman sandals to further brighten the palette of the dress.

Issa Rae: We’ve previously seen this Monse Spring 2017 off-the-shoulder, wrap-effect top on Emily Ratajkowski. But, I will not argue with a second showing of the cool, striped piece that offers a modern vision of classic shirting. Plus, I love the more casual spirit of Issa’s look with her faded, cropped denim and navy sandals.

2017 ESPYS Red Carpet Roundup

There were many other stars from sport and screen at the 2017 ESPYS on Wednesday (July 12) in LA.

Lindsey Vonn: Putting on the glitz with an embellished LBD, the Olympic skier donned a Monique Lhuillier fringed mini paired with Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ sandals. However, ice skates would seem almost just as suitable, as the frock would also make for quite the va-va-voom figure skating costume.

Russell Wilson: The football pro cut a dapper profile in a luxe Tom Ford ensemble, proving that the summer velvet trend is not exclusive to the female set.

Zosia Mamet: Despite her favoured towering platform shoes, Zosia duly impressed me in this Miu Miu red ruffle dress, which saw her take baby steps towards a more sophisticated style. The frosted lip also needed an upgrade, and the necklaces were unnecessary, but these were baby steps, after all.

Issa Rae In Balmain – 2017 BET Awards

Issa Rae brought was giving us good vibes with her bright and bold ensemble at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday (June 25) in LA.

She wore a Balmain Resort 2017 blazer and short combo which was fun and flirty, with the multi-coloured stripes making this look feel party-ready.

Long sleeves countered the plunging V-neck and kept things classy. Meanwhile, Hueb ruby diamond earrings and a Narcisa Pheres diamond necklace added some traditional glamour to this psychedelic look.

I love how her Edie Parker ‘Wolf Shard Lock’ clutch mimicked the colourful nature of her blazer and the overall feeling of optimism that this ensemble evokes.

Is this look a hit or a miss for you?

Issa Rae In Off-White – 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards


Issa Rae attended the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards, hosted on Sunday (May 7) in LA.

The ‘Insecure’ actress showed off a navy Off-White leather dress styled with a Kate Spade New York ‘Everdene Lane Zurie’ clutch and Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals.

I wanted to love the dress more than I actually did. But, if I could pinpoint what put me off the look, it’s largely owed to the overly girly ruffle additions at the bodice—not to mention a slightly ill-fitted look through the skirt.

She topped off the look with some sparkle via a John Hardy ring, Le Vian earrings, and a Narcisa Pheres canary diamond bracelet.

2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet Roundup

More stars were also in attendance at the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 25) in Santa Monica, California.

Danielle Brooks: The ‘OITNB’ actress took the plunge in an Urban Zen by Donna Karan wrap jersey tunic and pant, complemented by a body chain—as if enough attention wasn’t already directed to the girls.

Natasha Lyonne: The actress took a custom Creatures of The Wind rose and green floral dresses out for a spin. The pleated frock held promise, but I couldn’t see the forest for the trees given the clunky, distracting styling with the oversized white clutch and ivory boots.
