Issa Rae in Lisa Folawiyo at the BET American Black Film Festival Honors: IN or OUT?

Posted on February 20, 2017

We love Issa’s red carpet style, but we couldn’t come to a consensus on this one:


It feels like some good ideas – the textile, the cummerbund, the soft bustline and cold-shoulder sleeves – that don’t all combine as well as they might have. The cummerbund feels like it’s sitting too low, the skirt just kind of hangs off that, and the sleeves don’t have the right proportions to work with the rest of it. They really should’ve been about half the length they are.

But it’s hard to argue that she doesn’t look gorgeous. And the textile and colors are so pretty that we could possibly be talked out of any negativity. So let’s hear it, guys. Convince us this dress is fabulous enough for the fabulous Miss Issa.

IN or OUT? 

Show your work. “I just love her so much” responses will not be counted in the final tally.
