She may have risen from her drama series, Insecure, but Issa rae is definitely one star that is boldly making moves and proudly showing them off.
The TV personality looks stunning on the cover of Essence magazine, is outfits styled by Jason Rembert and photographed by Itaysha Jordan.
The issue is the magazine’s first in partnership with the newly relaunched Apple News+, now available as a monthly subscription service.
But while all eyes were on Issa’s dazzling covers, we couldn’t help but notice some extra sparkle on her ring finger.
The actress was photographed wearing what looked like an engagement ring, bringing up reports that she recently became engaged to purported longtime boyfriend Louis Diame (also of Senegalese descent, like Issa).
While some say the star made an announcement on Instagram earlier this month (if so, it’s been deleted), others claim to have seen her as recently as this past weekend without the bling in question. (It certainly wasn’t visible during a decent Women’s Health cover shoot.)
Rae admits that men have never been her primary focus, and to typically being “kind of flippant about relationships and men in general.” Whatever the case is, we’re thrilled for her, no matter what.
