Issa Rae Brightens Up in Yellow Fringe Top & Sandals at Adcolor Awards 2022

Issa Rae was a burst of sunshine at the 2022 Adcolor Awards.

The ceremony highlights and honors the achievements of BIPOC and LGBTQAI+ professionals that have championed inclusion and diversity in the advertising, marketing, tech, PR, media, and entertainment/music industries. This year Rae was honored with the 2022 Beacon Award in partnership with Adweek for her work on award-winning projects like “Insecure” and “Little.”

For the event, Rae wore a yellow two-piece set consisting of a pair of wide-leg bold yellow slacks with a matching long strapless yellow top with a multi-layered fringe. Rae styled the look with minimal accessories save for her wedding and a pair of boldly-colored, bejeweled earrings.

The “Insecure” star wore her hair in long, flowing braids and had a natural glam makeup look and a light-nude manicure to balance out the boldness of the outfit.

Her shoes, mostly hidden by the long hemline of the pants, were a pair of light-brown stiletto sandals. Many stiletto sandals feature a simple strap across the toes and a fastener strap around the ankle, creating a barely-there construction. The heel of a stiletto sandal is often 4 inches or above, adding some height for a flattering silhouette.
