Orange Is the New Black stars Taylor Schilling and Laverne Cox ditched their prison jumpsuits and got all dolled up for the 2014 Emmys.

Taylor looked ravishing in an off-white Zuhair Murad gown, while Laverne stunned in a custom white Mark Bauer dress. Both ladies stuck to classic ensembles Monday, because as Taylor told E! News' Giuliana Rancic, she wanted a dress that was "timeless."

"Maybe you shouldn't use that word to describe what you're wearing...That's like something somebody else says," she said, adding jokingly, "I feel timeless and glamorous!"

(Watch the video above to see her adorable interaction with Giuliana!)

Draped in Forevermark jewelry—including a particularly chic earring cuff and sweet diamond pinky ring, she looked very much like the belle of a 1930s ball! Co-star Laverne was rocking some gorgeous Fred Leighton jewels, and she was also completely in love with her dress. So much so, in fact, that she admitted, "at two different fittings, I started crying!"

This was actually Laverne's first time attending the Emmys—something she almost couldn't believe herself. "Usually I get on E! and watch all day long," she told Giuliana, "and now I'm here!"

And, indeed, last year, Laverne "was at home alone watching by myself," she said, "and I think I had some ice cream probably!"

Hey, watching E! News with a bowl of ice cream sounds like the perfect Emmys experience to us! Watch the video above to hear from Laverne just how different things are on the other side of the screen!

Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. for a special VMA and Emmys edition of Fashion Police!
