Issa Rae in a pale Vera Wang jumpsuit at the Emmys: stunning or not the best?

Issa Rae attends The 70th Emmy Awards-Arrivals in Los Angeles

Here are some ladies in Vera Wang at the Emmys. Issa Rae was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy, and Insecure was nominated for some other Emmys as well. This might have been the “most diverse” Emmys as far as nominations, but most of the actual awards just went to white people, just FYI. Maybe Issa knew she would lose, or maybe she just wanted to wear something different. Whatever the case may be, I ended up liking the idea of a high-fashion jumpsuit a lot more than this execution. I can’t put my finger on it… is it the color? Is it the way the pants are cut? Something is off about the jumpsuit. But Issa does look beautiful in general.

Elisabeth Moss wore Vera Wang as well. I feel like Moss has finally figured out her style – she looks best in very clean, streamlined looks, and that’s what she’s been wearing a lot lately. This Vera Wang dress wasn’t a fussy gown – it was just a sleek, flattering look. Well done.

Betty Gilpin wore Vera Wang too. This looked better in motion, where you could see just how tiny and fit she is. It sucks because bad tailoring around the cutouts make everything look weird.

    I don’t care for Elizabeth’s hair too light washes her out. I like all the outfits though it doesn’t come on here so just have to make do with photos.

    • Stubbylove says:

      And why does Elizabeth always do the chin down, eyes up, mouth closed smile? She looks psychotic. I loved Issa’s look.

      • K says:

        Yeah, I find her creepy. Some Scientologists are too deluded to know when they’re acting or looking creepy. I also think she looks terrible as a blonde.

  2. Dhavynia says:

    I think Issa’s pants are too long which would have been ok if the outfit did not have a train. The color could be more pastel like but she can pull it of
    The color of Gilpin’s dress is amazing

  3. S says:

    Issa is so gorgeous and I love that that color on her but, yeah, while the bodice is beautiful and her hair and makeup were on point, that jumpsuit is just beyond fug. It’s the sort of thing someone would wear to the red carpet of a Cannonball Run premiere. I think Kate McKinnon did a much better job with an I-don’t-like-gowns look that was far more flattering, and looked more comfortable, too.

  4. ByTheSea says:

    I would love the jumpsuit in another color and with better tailoring on the legs. Although since all the actresses wear their pants super long like that, I’m guessing that’s the style?

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Issa is really beautiful but I don’t love the outfit. The color and styling have a dated vibe, and not in a good way.

    I don’t really care for the other two dresses either.

  6. BaeBae says:

    She looks so so gorgeous! I love Issa and Issa loves a good jumpsuit, I feel like they’re her go-to.

  7. tuille says:

    Issa is wearing a sleeveless negligee, I think.
    Betty G’s cutouts are bad & give her love handles where she probably doesn’t really have any. Loved her in Nurse Jackie.

  8. a reader says:

    Betty Gilpin is a goddess and Issa is such a beautiful woman.

    Elisabeth on the other hand…. frankly she looks like a stuff sausage in that dress and from the neck up the look is incomplete. She looks completely washed out and underdone in the face.

  9. Abbess Tansy says:

    I’m not feeling the color on Issa’s jumpsuit and the pants are too long. But somehow she looks ok.
    I like Betty’s dress, though the cut-outs are a little strange.

  10. velvet hornsby says:

    The thing that bugs me about Issa’s outfit is the way the train meets the waistline. It’s not flattering. If the outfit was made without the train (and maybe a cape, instead… or nothing) I think it would be much better. BTW is anyone noticing how INSECURE is morphing into SATC with unemployed Issa wearing $1000 outfits on a Lyft salary?

    • DesertReal says:

      I had the same thought last night when I was watching it!
      When she was rocking that look at that bougie baby shower I was like, how in TF did her character pull that together? Lol

    Moss’ dress looks OK in pictures but when she walked out on stage, it slayed. And OMG Issa Rae can do no wrong in my eyes. I watch wine down after insecure and she is just divinely beautiful.
