Issa Rae's Plunging Wedding Reception Dress Just Won the Entire Weekend

While wedding ceremony dresses are made to look beautiful in photographs and capture the attention of the audience, reception dresses are where the fun's at. The dress that a bride changes into for dinner and dancing is often a more laid-back and easy-to-wear version of the main gown, but it's no less of a fashion moment.

Issa Rae had the right idea at her wedding this weekend, where she changed into a stunning Vera Wang dress that the brand describes as "a custom lily-white Italian silk crepe plunging V-neck A-line gown with a layered tulle skirt accented by a dramatic front slit." For her main ceremony, Rae chose a different dress by Vera Wang that featured a strapless neckline and a subtle cutout in the back. How beautiful does she look?

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
