Issa Rae In Pyer Moss & Sergio Hudson – 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards

Issa Rae hosted the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 4) held at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City.

Red Carpet: The ‘Insecure’ star wore sparkly blue jumpsuit made by politically-minded designer Kerby Jean-Raymond for the label Pyer Moss, with a belt inscribed with the message “Every N***a Is a Star”. I love the fantastical nature of bedazzlement, the colour, and the flowing train. At first I wasn’t’ crazy about the drape at the front, it brings a new dimension to standard jumpsuit.

On Stage: The bold boxy suit trend isn’t about to die down anytime soon. Issa rocked hers courtesy of Serigo Hudson. I adore the colour and the shape, but I wish it didn’t come with a belt. Matching Aurora James platforms completed the look.

77th Annual Peabody Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were a number of beauties at the 77th Annual Peabody Awards on Saturday (May 19) in New York City. They joined Rachel Brosnahan.

Yvonne Orji: The ‘Insecure’ actress opted for sophisticated separates. She wore a Naeem Khan blazer, Carmen Marc Valvo trousers, a Theory top and Calvin Klein shoes. The interplay of textures is exciting, but it still presents a harmonious finish thanks to the monochromatic colour palette and swirling lines.

Alexis Bledel: Making a statement in bright colour, the ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ actress was outfitted in Red Valentino. With so much going on, she was wise to stick with black accessories but the heavy boots are too harsh against the look and too casual for the event.

Issa Rae: Shimmering in Thom Browne, she showed a flirty side. Festooned with feathers, as opposed to fringing, increased the ethereal romance. The way the trim seamlessly blends with the silver metallic fabric shows a deft hand.

Michael Kors Collection @ 2018 Met Gala

The Michael Kors Collection was another popular label seen at the 2018 Met Gala on Monday (May 7) in New York City, with these six lovelies wearing the designer.

Naomi Watts: While this gold tapestry, shoulder-cape gown was one of the simpler, thematic looks of the night, I still thought it was a plenty righteous if somewhat forgettable look for the night.

Liu Wen: Something about the model’s strapless gown was giving me more of an Asian-influenced than angelic-inspired mood. It could have been the red and gold floral combination.

‘A Wrinkle In Time’ LA Premiere Red Carpet Roundup

The Los Angeles premiere of Disney’s ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ on Monday (February 26) brought out the storybook romance in many lovely ladies.

Tessa Thompson: The ‘Westworld actress’ oozed retro elegance in an embellished Miu Miu dress. It’s clear she has considered the entire look, but I must say that the Judith Leiber clutch takes away from the diamantes on the gown. The Irene Neuwirth and David Yurman jewels were more harmonizing.

Tracee Ellis Ross: The ‘Black-ish’ actress was a beauty blooms in a Michael Kors Resort 2018 dress. The pleated style has a romantic fairy tale quality, but her styling gives it a fashion-forward finish. A Tyler Ellis clutch, pale pink boots and her cornrows elevate the look.

Oprah Winfrey: Va-va-voom! The multi-hyphenate looked sensational in a deep blue Atelier Versace number. She may not have gone the princess route, but I don’t think anyone will be complaining about this sultry number.

Issa Rae In Oscar de la Renta – 2018 American Black Film Festival Honors Awards

By coincidence, Issa Rae and Tracee Ellis Ross were matching in the colours they selected for the 2018 American Black Film Festival Honors Awards on Sunday (February 25) in Beverly Hills, California.

I love how the embellished metallic sequins drip down this elegant Oscar de la Renta Spring 2018 gown, giving the simple column silhouette and eye-catching feature.

While this appears to be a tad too long in length, Issa is a vision of loveliness as always.

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.
