Issa Rae made her hosting debut for Saturday Night Live on Saturday (October 17).
As a multi-hyphenated actress, producer, host, writer, it was no surprise that she not only took this in her stride, but she also won audiences over with her sunny demeanor, humor and wit.
One of the stand out looks of the night was this Christian Dior Fall 2020 dress which exudes a sense of classic 1920s glamour on the account of the fringe detailing, but the leather trims brings the look right up-to-date.
The dress appears white, but as you can see more clearly on the model, the colour is actually a faint mint green.
Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Catia’ sandals completed her look.
Speaking of green, the actress wore a bold David Koma lime green dress in the preview for her appearance with musical guest Justin Bieber.
David Koma does tend to opt for a mostly dark colour palette, but he does like to incorporate this shade of lime green shade in a few of his collections going back as far as his Spring 2019.
I love the colour and the sleek satin fabric, but the sharp cuts and asymmetrical detailing really sells this look to me.
This shimmering dress with plunging neckline needs no introduction as Alexandre Vauthier’s signature gathered dresses continues to present the designers exquisite interpretation of femininity in the context of modern luxury.
To close the show the actress wore a look from the Area Fall 2020 collection, which was typical of the brand as it comprised of a sleek, minimal silhouette infused with the signature crystal chains which served as a head piece on this occasion.
The blazer is the selling point here thanks to the cut-outs and scores of light-catching diamante details accenting the shoulders.
For being totally unique, I would say this was my favourite look of the night.
Which was yours?
