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.

    This reminds me a whole lot of the Monse dress Diane Kruger wore a while back…

    I love blue and gold but somehow this looks kind of cheap.

    Shorten the damn dress. other than that I love it waist up

    im surprised she isnt getting called out for the creases! the proportions are all off.

    I hate this whole look.

    Beautiful dress! It looks wonderful on the runway model, sadly it doesn’t translate well on Issa. Her hair and makeup are great though!

    This is not her dress. She’s too short to wear it. Or maybe it’s just too long. I don’t think it’s flattering on her.

    Gorgeous woman and a beautiful dress but the pooling at the bottom does dampen the effect.

    Aging and unflattering 🙁
    I wish she would dress the same way she dresses in Insecure. Her style in it seems more in tune with her personality and age. Hair and make up on point as usual.

    I don’t know how tall Issa Rae is but she is obviously too short for this dress and hemming it would not have solved the problem because the bodice is loo long for her torso. It’s a pretty dress and reminds me of something Gugu wore recently that I liked but this look is not working.

    The proportions are off, too long and it seems like she has no waist.

    Its sits wrong on her body I think. It has an entirely different fit on the models body which is most obvious at the waistline.
    Also the length is obviously wrong too. I like the colours and even the styling….

    It had a lot of potential but perhaps not the right person for it.

    Shame about the creases but this could be a BDOTW option depending on how this week goes. She looks gorgeous her makeup is always so flawless.

    This is a little unflattering and matronly for her, and boy do these silks photo unfavorably after the wearer has engaged in unusual activities like “sitting” and “walking”.

    On the other hand, I love the colors and her hair and makeup game are as on point as always, so I must agree that she looks lovely.
