Exclusive: 21 Closet Questions with Taryn Manning

By  |  0 Comments
We spent Saturday evening at Bootsy Bellows in Beverly Hills with Genlux Magazine and Taryn Manning celebrating the “Orange is the New Black” star’s Fall 2014 cover.  Unlike her TV persona, the star of the hit Netflix series was pleasant, open-minded and incredibly friendly!

The star’s Nicole Miller #OOTN was picked out specifically for her by associate publisher of Genlux Magazine, Bryna Makowka.  Taryn was slightly under the weather for her cover launch so this outfit was the perfect pick as she said it made her feel “warm and cozy!”

More often than not we talk about celebs and their red carpet trends, but with Taryn we decided to switch it up!  We wanted all the deets on her closet fashion, and personal style picks… so we played a little game called 21 Closet Questions.
