Werk, Taystee!

Orange Is the New Black's Danielle Brooks rocked the red carpet at the 2015 Emmys, where the 26-year-old beauty looked delighted as she twirled around in her colorful gown while posing for pics. 

Wearing her hair in a slicked-back ponytail and sporting dramatic eye makeup, the Netflix star flaunted her killer curves in the dramatic chiffon dress, which she teamed with diamond jewelry.

"This Emmy's look tho!!! Oh it's about to go down," the actress tweeted earlier today in anticipation of the big day in addition to posting a hilarious list of "Emmys do's and don'ts" which include "blast AC so face doesn't melt" and "suck in, stand tall and smile."

"Today I decided to do something I've never done before: Go to the gym with my SHIRT OFF!! I thought I'd share why this is significant for me. I've always wanted to do this but have felt shameful and have told myself 'until my body is perfect I'm forbidden.'

"Today my inner being told me to turn up the notch on my self-love. I should not be ashamed of my body. I'm not a walking imperfection! I'm a Goddess. Secondly, I'm a confident woman!" she continued, adding a series of inspirational hashtags, "#Voiceofthecurves #Yesmythighstouch #Lovethyself #Beautyinandout #Goddess #Imabadshutyomouth #Ivebeeneatingmygreens #Thickathanasnika." 

Looking great, girl!
