I am not exaggerating. Every single day, during the last week, someone on my Facebook feed has confessed their obsession, adoration and love for Orange is the New Black. Not the color orange, but the Netflix original series telling the tale of an upper middle class New Yorker named Piper Chapman who ends up in prison for drug trafficking.
But besides doing absolutely everything to avoid EVER going to prison, the show made me think of one other thing, just with its title alone — Is orange really the new black? Not the orange jumpsuits that are worn by the prisoners in the show, but the hue being worn on models, actresses, A-listers, and reality stars. In honor of Orange is the New Black, I put together a collection of stars embracing orange in various shades and incarnations. Check out how these celebs wore orange, as the new black, right here:
