Issa Rae Is Our Style Crush, Here’s Why


One watch of Issa Rae’s Instagram Stories could win over any skeptic, but we first fell in love with her in Awkward Black Girl on YouTube and in her subsequent show Insecure—for which she is co-creator, writer, star and earned two Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress. Aside from her clear talent (which, let’s face it, is 90% of the reason we’re obsessed with her), she knows her way around a stylish outfit. Whether she’s crushing the Black Panther premiere purple carpet in a metallic gown or hitting the Sundance circuit in casual separates, she gravitates toward emerging designers and isn’t afraid to take sartorial risks. Here, a few of her most inspiring ensembles, and some pieces to help you get her look.
