Insecure star Issa Rae is married after confirming her engagement to banking professional Louis Diame back in 2019. The actress worked with Vera Wang Haute to dream up her two custom gowns for her nuptials in the South of France, the first of which came with a strapless sweetheart neckline and hand-sewn crystals across the chantilly lace bodice.
To match, Issa selected a chapel-length veil, and her mirrored platform shoes were standout.
She posed for photos with Louis, who wore an incredibly luxe red Dolce & Gabbana suit with a jacquard lapel and a bow tie. From behind, you can see that the back of Issa’s dress featured a cutout with subtle sporty appeal – it’s a design detail popular among 2021 brides, and definitely helps to offset the feminine appeal of a princess ball gown.
Later, for the reception, Issa switched into another Vera Wang Haute number, this one complete with a plunging neckline and a layered tulle skirt. Her jewelry for the breathtaking moment was simple: a thin, delicate choker necklace and diamond stud earrings. Ahead, see beautiful wedding photos taken by Lauren Fair, and click all the way through to catch a glimpse of Issa’s afterparty moment, which is just as unforgettable!
Keep Your Eyes on the Sky! The Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower Peaks This Week
A major meteor shower is happening on July 28 and 29, and it’s an astronomical event that’ll leave you starry-eyed. The Delta Aquarids will be most visible to those located on the southern hemisphere this week, although in the right conditions, you can catch a handful of shooting stars per night from July 12 to August 23.
The shower’s peak typically provides stargazers with a decent number of meteors for a couple of days before and after July 28 and 29, meaning all you have to do is look up! As for the peak days themselves, this shower can produce up to 10 to 20 meteors per hour!
How Can I Watch the Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower?
The best way to watch this shower (and any meteor shower) is to get outside and away from light pollution. The darker the sky, the better. We suggest lying flat on your back as well so you can really take it all in. Delta Aquarids are visible in both hemispheres, although the southern hemisphere will have the most favorable viewing. And don’t worry if you miss the peak of this shower – the meteors are normally viewable at dawn a few nights before and after as well.
Where Should I Be Looking?
Delta Aquarids are named after a star in the Aquarius constellation called Delta Aquarii. Look in the direction of the constellation, where showers will centrally be shooting from.
Other Tips I Need to Know?
For the best views, try to get as far away from the city or heavily lit areas as possible. If you have a telescope or DSLR camera, you’ll have a better shot at seeing the meteors.
