Emmys 2014: See Taryn Manning's Photo Diary, From the Getting-Ready Glam to the End of Night Fun!

08/26/2014 at 05:20 PM ET

Though we’re still a little bummed that Orange Is the New Black didn’t take home any Emmys wins, seeing the cast all glammed up at the award show was a pretty good second prize. And Taryn Manning proved she cleans up really well when she’s out of her Pennsatucky prison gear. Wondering how she got so polished? The actress shared her exclusive Emmys photo diary with PEOPLE.

Manning’s big day started with some serious primping from her glam squad. “Hair, makeup, nails … I’m putting them to work,” she says of the above photo (left). “They make me look and feel so pretty. Love my team. Perfecting my ‘Old Hollywood glam’ look for the awards.”

And she hunted down the perfect dress to go with: “This vintage Azzaro dress hugs me perfectly,” she shares. “I fell in love. When in doubt, go for gold.” The actress also managed to have some fun on the red carpet, adding a very unique accessory to her dress: handcuffs! “You can take the girl out of OITNB … ” she quips.

Manning hit the pre-party circuit with fashionable force as well, decked out in diamonds (the rings above are Le Vian and Borgioni) and some more colorful dresses. She selected another vintage dress (and it was orange!), which made her feel “100 feet tall.” And of course she celebrated with her castmates (that’s Adrienne Moore and Taylor Schilling grabbing some selfie face time) and some other notable nominees like Matt Leblanc and Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Just another day in the life outside of Litchfield walls, right?
