Orange may be the new black, but is cheap the new chic??
As we reported, in a video captured by TMZ, Taryn Manning SLAMS the $200 Adrianna Papell outfit she wore to Sunday’s SAG Awards as her stylist failed to disclose the dress’s price.
Not only did she call the entire situation “wack,” the OITNB star believes she is worthy of a “superstar gown.”

On Thursday night, the Crossroads actress took to Instagram to apologize for her comments, and says she has no ill will towards the designer or her stylist:

“I first want to say I’m sorry for the comments I made while being bombarded by paparazzi about my stylist and my dress. Let’s be clear, I loved my @adriannapapell dress and I’m friends with my stylist @chaunielle_brown I felt so beautiful and I was proud to be there to support my amazing cast of strong women and celebrate our nomination.”

However, the 39-year-old still claims she didn’t know about the price, and feels “used for someone else’s gain.”

“But styling should be a collaboration between the artist, stylist and the designer. I was completely caught off guard when all of the press about my dress was about the cost, which I knew nothing about, and I felt used for someone else’s gain. There was nothing out there about why I was there in the first place. I would have loved to embrace that my dress was affordable at SAG, especially since so much about fashion is unattainable, but I wasn’t given that chance.”

Although she wasn’t able to wear “couture” like other actresses at the event, Manning believes there are more important things in life than a dress’s “price tag.”

“Every artist dreams of wearing couture on a red carpet if given the opportunity. But I am happy to be the proof that there is more to feeling confident, beautiful and happy on the inside than just a price tag”

You can still buy the frock at Macy’s (HERE) or Bloomingdale’s (HERE).
