Taylor Schilling in Roksanda Ilincic at the 2013 Hollywood Foreign Press Luncheon

Posted on August 14, 2013

Oh, hey. It’s Taylor, star of our new obsession, Orange is the New Black, which we have watched all the way through at least 3 times now. And bought the book. If they make a Litchfield Prison video game, we might be in trouble.

Anyway, it’s always fun for us to first encounter a budding star in their actual work, rather than on the red carpet, which is how we’re usually introduced to them. So now we have all kinds of preconceptions about Taylor and she gets to knock them all down, one by one, as we yell at her for disappointing us. Fun! The blogger/celebrity relationship is just as codependent and dysfunctional as … well, every other relationship, we suppose.

 

Taylor Schilling attends the 2013 Hollywood Foreign Press Association Annual Luncheon in Beverly Hills, California in a Roksanda Ilincic dress paired with Sophia Webster ‘Finn’ heels, an Edie Parker clutch, and Sophie Hughes jewelry.

Oh, girl. We were more than fine with everything until our eyes made it down to your feet. We might have forgiven the matchiness (not likely) but all those bows and straps and everything are just too much for our delicate blogger brains to handle. They look like high heels designed by a 6-year-old. We love the dress, clutch, jewelry and makeup, though; so you’re off to a good start there, Tay.

Now, let’s discuss the show, since that’s the real reason we put these pictures up. Spoilers to those who haven’t seen it (and who should really see it): We don’t get why many of the viewers think Piper & Alex somehow make a better couple than Piper & Larry. Believe us, we’re not arguing for heteronormativity here. We’re not convinced she should be with Larry anymore than she should be with Alex, but we don’t quite get how the latter is a better option for her. We can’t help thinking if Alex was a dude with the same history (co-dependent, manipulative heroin dealer who ratted Piper out and lied about it), the audience wouldn’t be nearly as likely to ship them. Frankly, we think Piper needs to figure out who the hell Piper is and forget about pairing off with anyone until that’s settled.
