Black Hollywood continues to stay on top.

After a night of making history with Jordan Peele and Kobe Bryant’s Oscar wins, Issa Rae is now making history after landing a sweet gig.

The Insecure actress has been tapped to host the 37th Annual CFDA Fashion Awards this summer. So what makes this such a big deal? This will be the first time a woman has hosted the show in nearly a decade.

The beauty confirmed the news via Twitter writing: “So excited to announce that I will be hosting the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 4th! Mark your calendars!”

The CFDA Awards are the BIGGEST awards in fashion and is attended by some of Hollywood’s elite, including Beyonce, who in 2016 was the recipient of the CFDA Fashion Icon award. “As long as I can remember, fashion has been part of my life. Its effect on me actually started before I was born. Many of you guys don’t know this, but my grandmother was a seamstress,” she said during her acceptance speech. “My grandparents did not have enough money, they could not afford my mother’s Catholic school tuition. So my grandmother sewed clothes for the priests and the nuns and made uniforms for the students in exchange for my mother’s education. She then passed this gift onto my mother and taught her how to sew.”
