Issa Rae had a stellar 2016 — from the critically acclaimed debut of Insecure to her Golden Globe nomination. And now she’s starting off 2017 with a bang. She is the definition of “slay” in a photoshoot for Elle USA‘s February 2017 issue in a stunning black Brandon Maxwell pleated cape-back mini Dress.
This photo accompanies a short interview with the actress-writer-director-producer. Here is a snippet on her show Insecure:
