Getting Ready with Issa Rae for the NAACP Awards
Talking awkward red carpet moments and inappropriately long hugs with the “Insecure” star.
File this under: bucket list level pre-gaming scenarios. No new news that we love a good primp and prep, but when you’re getting ready pre-NAACP Awards with nominee Issa Rae (if you haven’t watched Insecure in its entirety, consider it your Monday night plan), and talking inappropriately long hugs with Kofi Siriboethe and dream run-ins with Viola Davis, the fun level is amplified ten fold. While Rae slipped into her Stella Nolasco gown and got final glam touchups by makeup artist Joanna Simkin (who used all natural brand Burts Bees to achieve Rae’s glow) and hair stylist Felicia Leatherwood, we listened to Sampha, Big Sean, Solange, Drake in what she would call her “Sophistiratch Sounds” playlist.
