Her brunette hair was slicked back and styled into a gorgeous double braid that flowed down her back.

As for makeup, Rae rocked a dramatic smokey eyeshadow look and applied a generous amount of clear lip gloss to her pout.

The red carpet and subsequent screening were held at the Kenneth Hahn Park nestled in the Baldwin Hills Mountains in LA. 

She was later joined by her second in command Yvonne Orji, who plays Issa’s BFF Molly Carter on the hit series, who dazzled in a pair of purple flared trousers and a pale pink bustier.

The 37-year-old actress layered up her look with a dramatic feathered shrug.

Issa created Insecure with her writing pal Larry Wilmore and draws inspiration from her popular web series Awkward Black Girl, which premiered on YouTube in 2011.

Appearing on the Tamron Hall Show earlier this week, Rae opened up about deciding to end Insecure after five seasons on HBO.

Gather around: Yvonne and Issa stop to take a snap with Insecure showrunner Prentice Penny and series regular Jay Ellis

Familiar face: Yvonne caught up with Insecure guest star Jidenna Mobisson, who looked stylish in a patterned shirt and matching trousers

‘I’m very conscious of people giving their time to the show and five years is a lot of time, and six years for some of us,’ she explained. 

‘And you know, from the writers to the crew to the actors, I knew, I’m like, “We’re gonna get tired of each other after maybe four years, five years. So let’s cut it short while we still love each other.'”

Although the entire cast and crew of Insecure ‘love each other so much,’ Issa couldn’t help but cite some sound advice her mother ‘always’ told her: ‘Never overstay your welcome.’

She continued: ‘I’m just appreciative that people are gonna miss it. And you know, I hope that’s still true when it ends.’

After Issa and Yvonne made their grand arrivals at Thursday night’s season five premiere, many of Insecure’ other stars and crew members hit the red carpet. 

The dynamic duo mingled with Insecure showrunner Prentice Penny and series regular Jay Ellis, before posing with HBO executive Amy Gravitt and the premium network’s chief content officer Casey Bloys.
