CFDA Awards 2018: Issa Rae Had Something to Say in Pyer Moss

Posted on June 05, 2018

Looking over the attendees as they filtered into the CFDAs, arguably the most important night in American fashion, we were pretty bummed at how generic all the looks were and how no one seemed to want to push the boundaries of fashion anymore. We’re sorry to say that Miss Issa’s ensemble, at first glance, struck us as a particularly disappointing example of a hardcore fashionista showing up on the big night in something fairly standard and underwhelming.


It’s shimmery and pretty, we guess. The hair and makeup are gorgeous, as per the uzh with her, and we love the single chain earring.  But she could wear this on literally any standard TV or movie premiere red carpet. We expect some power and passion in our CFDA fashion! We want to see something new; something bold! We want to see —

But wait. What’s this?

Computer, enhance:

Well alright, then. Consider our mouths shut on the matter. It may not be the most interesting design in the world, but the message sure landed like a bolt of lightning. It’s not for these two white boys to parse or even have much of an opinion on what she did here, but as total fashion queens, we salute and support her using this moment to push boundaries and make a statement.
