Despite being in a room full of fellow creatives, actress, and producer Issa Rae looked like a beautiful fish out of the water at last night’s Women in Film Annual Gala. The Awkward Black Girl creator who’s accustomed to standing out donned a mesmerizing jumbo braid that stuck out like a sore thumb. Between the plait’s gorgeous golden hue and 3D dimension, the hairstyle was pretty hard to miss.

Issa attended the gala held at the Beverly Hilton where she was honored for her advocacy work in gender parity, but the 34-year-old looked like she was ready for a party under the sea with her aqua eye makeup and mermaid braid.

Issa Rae’s attention-grabbing hairstyles match her enthralling personality, and both stole the spotlight as she accepted WIF’s Emerging Entrepreneur Award.

“Entrepreneur till I die; I deserve this, bye,” the actress jested. Congratulations Issa Rae!
