Issa Rae In Vera Wang – 2018 Emmy Awards

Issa Rae In Vera Wang - 2018 Emmy Awards

Issa Rae joined her ‘Insecure’ costar Yvonne Orji at the 2018 Emmy Awards on Monday (September 17) in Los Angeles.

I was enchanted by the delicate embellishment juxtaposed against the plunging neckline of her custom Vera Wang ensemble that it took me a second to realise there were trousers.

I always applaud someone who doesn’t default to the traditional gown and I love the interplay of tailored and soft elements in the ensemble.

The thing that brings it down slightly for me is that the tailoring on the pants could be improved, especially in comparison to the construction of the bodice.

Thoughts?

    Doesn’t fit right. Looks weird and not in a good way.

    I love her, so this is sad. The fit let her down big time.

    I think this in a gown might have been too miss world. The colour is gorgeous on her and that smile is infectious.

    Unflattering on her.

    Disappointing fit at the waist. It is still good because when in motion, the fit flaws disappear. I like the powder blue on her.That smile, she sparkles….

    I like the idea of the pants but no the execution. She’s gorgeous though.

    Beautiful!

    Such a lovely face and great colour for her, but this is let down because of the fit issues.

      Agreed. Love the color but she could’ve done better.

  11. Caroline September 18, 2018 at 1:47 am #

    Oh no, this looks so cheap.

    I like the idea of it, but the proportions make her look like a beam of wood – no curves whatsoever. There needed to be a belt or something defining her waist.

    This is a no for me. I can’t stand the fit of the pants and the ensemble makes her look boxy. The top is dated in a been there done that kind of way. Issa seems to fall just short quite often. On the plus side, love the earring.
