We cannot deny this has been Issa Rae’s week! Our favorite awkward black girl let her fans know that the second season of Insecure will be debuting on July 23rd and she is being featured in the Hollywood Reporter‘s Comedy Actress Roundtable interview! The fact that she is the only black comedian in the roundtable speaks volumes of her success and growth in Hollywood in the past year. This black girl is beyond magical. The interview provides insight into Issa’s life while also giving us life with all of the jaw-dropping fashion.
Let‘s be totally honest,since Issa came on the scene, we have labeled her “bae.” We can relate to Issa in so many ways; from her character in the popular HBO series, Insecure, to her style, to her makeup looks. HER LIFE IN GENERAL IS JUST…YES!!! This photoshoot solidified for us that pink isn’t just for little girls on Easter but for grown successful women with a message.
The 70’s theme of this photoshoot, which was shot by Ruven Fanador, doesn’t go without notice. She is paying homage to the women before her with her afro styled by Felicia Leatherwood (@lovingyourhair). The simple but chic makeup by Joanna Simkin (@joannasimkin) made for classic looks.
Issa is definitely one to watch, admire and now gag over because this shoot is definitely captivating!
