Taylor Schilling at ‘The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen 20th Anniversary Gala
Interview and pics of Taylor Schilling before the SAG awards
From Violet Grey
We’re so used to seeing Taylor Schilling in orange prison scrubs that it’s something of a shock to see her safely ensconced in a fluffy robe, sipping a green juice and getting a pedicure. The actress, one of the stars of Netflix’ jailhouse drama Orange is the New Black, is this afternoon being prepared for the SAG awards. “Eyebrows all over my face,” she says mischievously of her look, which is in fact a ‘90s take on the dark lip, a rich burgundy that matches her ADEAM gown, chosen with stylist Penny Lovell. What she doesn’t know is that in only a few hours, OITNB will win Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series (yet again), an event made extra special by the fact that the actress hadn’t been able to attend the awards for the past 2 years due to filming commitments. Schilling, surrounded by cast and crew, brings the house down with her rousing speech, a brilliant manifesto on why diversity makes us stronger. “It’s up to us, and all of you, probably, to keep telling stories that show what unites us is stronger than the forces that seek to destroy us.” Truly, Schilling is beautiful inside and out.
