Danielle Brooks channeled "Old Hollywood glam" at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The 25-year-old actress - who, along with her 'Orange Is the New Black' co-stars, took home the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the star-studded ceremony last night (25.01.15) - showed off her curves in a midnight blue Christian Siriano gown and credited her makeup artist Jessica Smalls and hair stylist Larry Sim for never letting her down when it comes to choosing her red carpet looks.

She said: "I mostly leave [everything] up to my hair stylist Larry Sim, and makeup artist Jessica Smalls because they never let me down with their choices.

"We kind of decide what works when we get together, but whatever it is, it's a play on Old Hollywood glam!"

The raven-haired beauty - who plays Tasha 'Taystee' Jefferson on the hit Netflix series - also gushed over the Christian's "breathtaking" designs and confessed she struggled to choose between which of his gowns to wear because they were all "so beautiful".

She said: "I'm a fan of Christian Siriano and love that his designs allow women to have a moment in the garment, because he is so forward-thinking with his looks. [The dresses] are always so breathtaking.

"The biggest challenge was figuring out which sketch to go with, because all of them were so beautiful.

"He is that dude, meaning he's got it. He knows women's bodies, what will look good on their skin tones, and how to make her feel comfortable and fabulous all together. He's one of the best at his craft."

Danielle was joined on the red carpet at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles by her co-star Jackie Cruz who looked equally stunning in one of the designer's gold sequin creations.

Jackie - who plays Flaca on the series - said: "Christian was willing and able to bring our shared vision to life.

"He is an artist who understands the female form and makes women feel confident and beautiful with his art."
