BLACK GIRL MAGIC: ISSA RAE THE NEW FACE OF COVERGIRL!
Admit it, Issa Rae is total black girl magic or am I just fan-girling right now? Self proclaimed awkward black girl , code for hella phenomenal with a splash of quirk, Issa Rae embodies the full spectrum of what it means to be black and woman and beautiful she does it so effortlessly.
Writer, producer , actress , director — what can't this woman do? From the her hit YouTube webseries Awkward Black Girl to my personal favorite TV show on prime-time right now,HBO's Insecure, Issa has proven time and time again that there is magic in awkward and something so insanely profound in being black. I say it's about time our girl gets the shine she deserves and what better way to show inclusion and representation then to have this African goddess as the face of what we've come to know as the personification of beauty, CoverGirl.
CoverGirl officially announced it's partnership with the genius that is Ms. Rae earlier today on their official Instagram,
Issa also took to her social media to chime in on the announcement , writing on Twitter :
It's a beautiful day when one of your own gets the shine, credit and accolades that they deserve and I personally am celebrating as if I know her. I cannot wait to see the official cover and if the released photos today are any indication, I know she is about to SLAY. But I mean, doesn't she always?
Listen Issa , girl, CONGRATULATIONS!
