Insecure stars Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji were about that party life after the Golden Globes last night (7 January). The ladies showed Hollywood’s a-list how to enjoy themselves as they bounced from one after-party to the next and mingled with the likes of Kerry Washington, Donald Glover and Drake.

It was a busy evening for Orji, 34, and Rae, 32, whose first stop was, of course, the Golden Globes awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton hotel. Shortly after, the HBO actresses bumped into Scandal star Washington and visited the Netflix and Beats after-parties.

From that point on, Orji documented the night’s antics on Instagram stories and it certainly fun-filled. Here’s the evening told through Orji’s, sometimes blurry, eyes…

Selfie #1:

Orji and Rae took a moment to pose for a rather composed selfie before the fun truly kicked off. Orji sweetly captioned the photo: “She’s a winner in my eyes! Love you boo! @issrae.”

Unfortunately, Rae did not pick up the Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy like she deserved, but she certainly drowned her sorrows well. More on that later…

Justin Timberlake fanboys:

Who knew that Trousersnake himself was a fan of HBO’s hit series? According to Orji: “This is when @justintimberlake was telling @issarae how much he loves @insecurehbo.” Maybe he was angling for a cameo spot?

Girl gang:

Oh, hey Kerry! Seriously, can we get an invitation to hang out too?

A lesson in smizing:

Donald Glover took a break from baby duties – his girlfriend just gave birth to their second child – to show Orji how to smize. Either it was very smokey in that room or Donald has that smize down pat. Tyra Banks would be proud.

A taste of Africa:

Drake got behind the decks and made Orji a very happy woman by playing a selection of Afrobeat tunes. Coincidentally, Orji found the other Nigerian in the room, rapper Wale, and the pair bonded over their love for the motherland.

Missy Elliott time:

After Orji returned from her brief trip to Nigeria, it was Rae’s time to get down. Song of choice? Missy Elliott’s classic Sock It 2 Me. And Rae did Missy proud as she knew every.single.word.

How To Get Away With… taking another selfie:

Okay, it wasn’t a selfie as such but Orji did catch up with another friend. This time How To Get Away With Murder actress Aja Naomi King, who looked a lot more composed than a certain…

Issa Rae, party done

It all got a little too much for Ms Rae who looked a little worse for wear at the end of the night. We’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say it was a bad angle!

Looks like a great night was had by all… but seriously, ladies, can we get an invite next time?!
