Hollywood heavy-hitters have made it clear that Summer '19 is all about daring hues. From neon green to tangerine, energetic color ways are all the rage among the fashion set, and Issa Rae's yellow dress was the latest citrus-toned look to consider copying this season. On Weds., the Insecure actor and producer attended HBO's Television Critics Association 2019 summer tour, and she looked summertime fine while promoting A Black Lady Sketch Show, a new comedy project that's hitting HBO next month.

The Stanford alumna commanded the stage in a vivid floor-length number featuring a plunging neckline and ruffled cap sleeves, styled with pale beige stilettos and gold hoop earrings. Wearing shimmery brown eyeshadow, luscious lashes, and a shiny nude lip color, the multitalented writer was dishing out plenty of beauty inspiration, and her light brown box braids might convince you to try a protective style for the remainder of summer.

While discussing the forthcoming comedy show alongside series creator Robin Thede and director Dime Davis, Rae dropped a few deets on Insecure Season 4. The actor didn't reveal specifics on a release date, but confirmed that writing is underway and filming is set to begin in Sept. And, get excited, because Rae also revealed that next season will have ten episodes, two more than usual.
