We love it when Issa Rae steps out for an event because what she wears automatically becomes our next outfit obsession. The Insecure star donned a stunning custom AKNVAS dress for the NAACP Image Awards.

The one-shoulder lavender ensemble featured a high slit, a sweetheart neckline, and a wraparound-style bodice. The dress’s front slit perfectly displayed the star’s footwear selection of the evening, a pair of shimmering ankle-strap silver stilettos.

For makeup, the beauty opted for her signature hairstyles, a slicked-back ponytail with brushed-out curls and a gleaming complexion paired with a deep purple glossy lip. Issa accessorised with a pair of dangly diamond earrings and her wedding ring.
