Taylor Schilling covers the July 2014 beauty issue of Allure magazine looking nothing like her character Piper on Orange Is The New Black. Which is a good thing since she plays an inmate in prison LOL! The makeup artist team for OITNB do such a good job that when you see these characters off screen you’re shocked to see how beautiful they are.
In the new issue Taylor opens up about prison beauty, feeling ugly while growing up and more:
On the prison beauty & fashion of her hit show Orange Is the New Black: “It’s totally liberating. There’s freedom in not having to make it about how my jeans fit or what my boobs look like in a top. All I have to do now is play.”
On her current approach to her looks: “I don’t feel bound by my face or my body. I don’t feel like that’s the biggest gift I have to offer the world. I feel like there are more parts of me to offer than that.”
On her belief that she was ugly growing up: “It was tough at home, and it was tough at school…. And my experience was painful, so painful. There was a period of time I had very short hair, and I had glasses, and I was very tall for my age.”
