Issa Rae is our spirit animal! Chick is never scared to say what's really on her mind, especially when it comes to her love for blackness. Get into her controversial outfit and comments she made at the CFDA Awards inside...

When it comes to stanning out for black folks, Issa Rae holds the crown.

The "Insecure" creator/actress rolled up on the carpet for the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Brooklyn Museum in NYC last night. And chick did not disappoint.

Blue was the hue for last night's event as Issa rocked a custom blue Pyer Moss ensemble that featured over 180,000 Swarovski crystals. Sparkle then, Issa! But, it was her belt that has everyone talking.

The black belt wrapped around Issa's waist reads, "Every N*gga Is A Star." That's one way to grab folks' attention.

The look was created by black designer Kerby Jean-Raymond and it was his idea to put the saying on the belt. (Another high-five to Issa for rocking a black designer on such a huge platform as this!)

Kerby told PEOPLE it was his idea and that the saying is the title of a song by Boris Gardiner that played during his fall/winter 2018 runway show. FUN FACT: The song was featured on the Moonlight soundtrack and Kendrick Lamar sampled it in his To Pimp a Butterfly opener.

“[It was] interesting and new for me because a lot of it was done via phone and pictures because of our work schedules,” he said. “The sketching process was very fun.”

This SO reminds us of when Issa hit the carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes and said she was "rooting for everbody black." Ha!

The two-time Golden Globe nominee made a bold statement on the carpet without saying a word. When she got inside, she took it to another level.

Issa was tapped to host (becoming the first black person to do so) and during her opening monologue, the "Awkward Black Girl" fired shots at Kanye West over his latest f**kery.

"I'm about as fashionable as Kanye is black. Only when it's convenient," she said to the audience.

Then she savagely said,

“That joke was my choice, just like slavery.”

*drops mic* Chile....

'Ye wasn't in the crowd when she made these comments, surprisingly. However, his wife Kim Kardashian West, who received the inaugural Influencer Award, certainly was.

Kim, don't even THINK about coming for Issa with your Twitter fingers. Those are problems you don't want. Trust.
