Issa Rae and Her Stylist Jason Rembert Are All About ‘Fun’ on the Red Carpet

When it comes to the red carpet, “we are looking to have fun. Fashion is great but shouldn’t be taken so seriously,” said Issa Rae’s stylist, Jason Rembert. It’s no surprise, then, that an upbeat tempo sets the mood for Rae’s looks.

The actress rose to fame with the hit HBO show “Insecure” — which she created and writes for — a comedy loosely based on Rae’s “Awkward Black Girl” YouTube series. On the big screen, she proudly embraces gawkiness, but her real-life style is far from it.

Going high-end at this year’s NAACP Image awards, Rae shimmered in a spring ’18 Marc Jacobs dress with YSL stilettos. Prior to that, her custom Prabal Gurung slit gown revealed sleek Stuart Weitzman sandals at the Golden Globes.

Recently, the actress joined the band of other celebrities in gold sandals at the “Black Panther” world premiere in Los Angeles. Rae opted for a shiny pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels that coordinated with the metallic pleats of her Rosie Assoulin dress.

“There are many designers that we like to wear. I think it’s important as a stylist to work with big fashion houses as much as upcoming brands, [and] we are pretty balanced when it comes to that,” said Rembert.

As he continues to tap into Rae’s glamorous side, he acknowledged the opportunity to shape the aesthetic of such a dynamic star. “To work with someone like Issa is a dream come true. She is a visionary and truly one of the few pushing culture forward,” he said.
