Orange is the New Black cast rocks the VMAs in dark dresses


Guess they’ve had enough of those bright orange jumpsuits? The cast of Orange is the New Black showed up to last night’s MTV Video Music Awards rocking gorgeous black and blue embellished dresses that put their on-screen costumes to shame.

Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba and Laverne Cox represented their Netflix hit series in a stylish way on the red carpet, and seemed to very deliberately stray from their characters’ uniforms. Of course, they are incarcerated on the show, so they don’t have much say in the matter, but you could tell the actresses loved dressing up for a change.

In a black blinged out sweetheart neckline dress featuring a high slit, Taylor definitely brought the sexy. She paired the dress with edgy black leather sandals, sultry beach waves and gorgeous eye makeup.

Also opting for a classic LBD, Uzo Aduba went for a long-sleeve version with heavy embellishment at the midsection and shoulders. She spiced up the dark color with gold strappy sandals, a sassy red lip and a polished blowout.

Laverne Cox went for a stunning asymmetrical navy sequined gown, accessorizing with simple black pumps and straight hair.

Side by side, these ladies made for quite the stylish trio, and they only fueled our Emmys style fever even more. The big show airs tonight, and we’re hoping this is a preview of some fab fashion to come!
