So Issa Rae & 'Lyft Bae Nathan' Are Cute As Hell In Real Life Too - Emmy Party Fun + Issa's Officially Queen Of LITTY, BLACK AF Hollywood (Yacht) Parties

Issa Rae is becoming a living legend in these Black Hollywood party streets, and we're here for it.  Go inside her bomb & (un)bougie pre-Emmys yacht party, and her link-up with Lyft Bae in real life.

If we were having trouble establishing new life goals, Queen Issa just answered our prayers for help.

Our new goal is to live our absolute best lives at one of her Hollywood parties, like her yacht party this weekend that went viral.  But first, she got dolled up to perfection for the Audi pre-Emmy celebration at the La Peer Hotel in West Hollywood on Friday.

Issa and her new "Insecure" co-star Kendrick Sampson (Lyft Bae)are cute AF in real life too!   Ugh!  We know, we know.  They're not a real life couple.  But damn, we wouldn't be mad at any of it. The twosome paused their sexy on-screen Ferris wheel antics long enough to hit up the real life event and snap pics together.

While Issa kept it cute in a two piece printed look.  She posed it up with "American Horror Story" star Adina Porter and Samira Wiley too:

And "Westworld" star Thandie Newton  showed up in a floral brocade suit that we're officially obsessed with.

Yesterday, Issa got rid of the hangover she HAD to have had and looked gorge at the Glamour x Tory Burch Women To Watch Lunch.

As for the yacht party we're talking about on Saturday....

Chick collected the black folks she's rooting for, and their shirts, and became the yacht party queen we always knew she would be:

We see she made sure to snatch off Lyft Bae's shirt. You're doing amazing sweetie. Bless you.

The party was for black Emmy nominees and whoever else Issa felt like inviting.  And from the looks of things, it was everything.

Ish we discovered in the 11 mins of footage from various lucky party goers:

Tracee Ellis Ross& Issa together - carefree and sisterly - are Goals. Tiffany Haddish might have gotten pregnant at that 10:14 min. mark. Amanda Seales gave us twerk action in a whole sweatsuit...on a boat. And it was still hot. Lil Rel is who we want to be at every party in life. Jidenna and Nathan could get it every day, all day, even when the "leave me alone" bonnet is on.
