Turns out the Orange Is The New Black cast don’t just wear orange (or black) in real life
Orange Is The New Black is back on our screens for its third series and we’re SO excited.
After months of waiting we’ll finally get to see what’s happened to Piper, Alex and the rest of the inmates at Litchfield Penitentiary. There was A LOT of drama in season two, with the cliffhanger ending seeing Piper get former girlfriend Alex thrown back in prison, so there looks set to be plenty of drama as the show returns.
But as much as we love OITNB, we can’t help but wonder – what do the cast look like when they’re NOT wearing their jailbird scrubs? Click through above to find out!
We’ve got to say, Taylor Schilling – who plays protagonist Piper Chapman – looks AMAZING in real life. The 30-year-old actress wowed in a cut-out red dress at the Netflix series premiere of OITNB this week in New York and completed the look with a gorgeous wavy hairdo. Makes a change from seeing her in her prisoner get-up!
In fact all of the cast were looking incredibly glamorous at the event. Laura Prepon (Alex Vause) opted for a classic camel coat teamed with a navy top, green trousers and a chic pair of heels, but we still recognised her thanks to her distinctive long brown locks.
Some of the stars aren’t so easy to spot though as they look TOTALLY different to their characters when they’re not on screen. Taryn Manning – who stars as religious former meth addict Tiffany ‘Pennsatucky’ Doggett – is almost unrecognisable without those dodgy teeth and the dark hair. Look how cute she actually is!
Meanwhile Natasha Lyonne (Nicky Nichols) goes for a much more fun look than that of her character, opting for quirky sunglasses and a striking blue dress.
Kate Mulgrew (Galina ‘Red’ Reznikov), Uzo Aduba (Suzanne ‘Crazy Eyes’ Warren) and Dascha Polanco (Dayanara Diaz) are also way more glam in real life – and we can’t say we blame them for wanting to ditch the scrubs!
