Jay Ellis did Lawrence justice as the picture of smooth style. He wore a fuzzy black sweater over a white turtleneck and completed the outfit with striped black-and-white pants and white boots.

When not showing off their glamorous outfits, the cast of
Insecure was showing off the chemistry they built over five years of working together, laughing and taking selfies just as their own characters would. They kept the good vibes flowing at the after-party too. <img alt="LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA OCTOBER 21 Issa Rae and Jay Ellis attend the Premiere of HBO's Insecure Season 5 at Kenneth..." class="ResponsiveImageContainer-dlOMGF byslZC responsive-image__image" src="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_1600%2Cc_limit/1347997624" srcSet="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_120,c_limit/1347997624 120w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_240,c_limit/1347997624 240w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_320,c_limit/1347997624 320w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_640,c_limit/1347997624 640w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_960,c_limit/1347997624 960w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_1280,c_limit/1347997624 1280w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11f59060629868cfd27/master/w_1600,c_limit/1347997624 1600w" sizes="100vw"/> Jeff Kravitz/Getty Images <img alt="LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA OCTOBER 21 Yvonne Orji Issa Rae and Jay Ellis attend the Premiere of HBO's Insecure Season 5 at..." class="ResponsiveImageContainer-dlOMGF byslZC responsive-image__image" src="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_1600%2Cc_limit/1347997623" srcSet="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_120,c_limit/1347997623 120w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_240,c_limit/1347997623 240w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_320,c_limit/1347997623 320w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_640,c_limit/1347997623 640w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_960,c_limit/1347997623 960w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_1280,c_limit/1347997623 1280w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11e5cf2dd34c12fdabe/master/w_1600,c_limit/1347997623 1600w" sizes="100vw"/> Jeff Kravitz/Getty Images <img alt="LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA OCTOBER 21 Wade AllainMarcus Jean Elie Leonard Robinson Yvonne Orji Issa Rae Christina Elmore..." class="ResponsiveImageContainer-dlOMGF byslZC responsive-image__image" src="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_1600%2Cc_limit/1348016606" srcSet="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_120,c_limit/1348016606 120w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_240,c_limit/1348016606 240w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_320,c_limit/1348016606 320w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_640,c_limit/1348016606 640w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_960,c_limit/1348016606 960w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_1280,c_limit/1348016606 1280w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11b87511e1804d96710/master/w_1600,c_limit/1348016606 1600w" sizes="100vw"/> Amy Sussman/Getty Images <img alt="LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA OCTOBER 21 Yvonne Orji Issa Rae and Jay Ellis attend the after party for the Premiere of HBO's..." class="ResponsiveImageContainer-dlOMGF byslZC responsive-image__image" src="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_1600%2Cc_limit/1348018023" srcSet="https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_120,c_limit/1348018023 120w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_240,c_limit/1348018023 240w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_320,c_limit/1348018023 320w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_640,c_limit/1348018023 640w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_960,c_limit/1348018023 960w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_1280,c_limit/1348018023 1280w, https://media.glamour.com/photos/6172e11d6c6c0f59365a07ce/master/w_1600,c_limit/1348018023 1600w" sizes="100vw"/> Amy Sussman/HBO
I’m low-key sad knowing this is the last time we’ll see them together at a premiere, but thank you, cast of
Insecure, for blessing us with this Black excellence. I’m not crying, you are. HBO announced the end of Insecure on January 13. “Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO programming, in a statement, per . “The show is as incisive as it is heartfelt, and it has resonated strongly with its audience because of the deeply personal work that Issa, Prentice, Melina, the cast, and the writers have put into it. This talented team has conceived a brilliant final season for Variety Insecure, and we look forward to having many more stories to tell with this singular group of collaborators.”
