Issa Rae Makes Statement In Haitian-American Fashion Brand At The CFDA Awards 2018

All eyes were in Issa Rae last night at the CFDA Fashion Awards 2018 held at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City. Rae — the award show’s first-ever black female host — walked the red carpet at the Brooklyn Museum in a bright blue, one-shoulder Pyer Moss jumpsuit, adorned with over 180,000  Swarovski crystals. The Haitian-American designer, known for his activism and commitment to highlighting race relations in the United States of America finished the ensemble with a belt inscribed with the message “Every N***a Is a Star”. The phrase itself  referenced a 1973 track by Jamaican singer-songwriter Boris Gardiner, which was also sampled by Kendrick Lamar’s “Wesley’s Theory” on his 2015 album “To Pimp a Butterfly.”
