Insecure‘s Exclusive NOLA Wine Down Wows Essence Fest

HBO celebrated Insecure’s upcoming third season with a deliciously swanky affair at the Ace Hotel during Essence Fest weekend in NOLA. The invite-only “Wine Down” treated guests to an engaging conversation between the show’s Creator/Executive Producer and star Issa Rae, co-star Yvonne Orji and Executive Producer Prentice Penny.

Oh, but it gets better: Rising R&B star Ella Mai came thru with a surprise performance of her summer smash “Boo’d Up” as the cast and crowd got their life! Moments later, guests enjoyed brunch-style bites (headlined by theee most delectable shrimp & grits eveeer), fancy show-themed cocktails and hip-moving sounds by DJ Jasmine Solano.

Insecure Season 3 premieres exclusively on HBO on Sunday, August 12th at 10:30 PM ET/PT. For more info visit
